My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Aashyana Lakhanpal for 4 nights at the end of our 16 day tour of India in January, 2014. We had stayed at the Oberoi and Taj Palace Hotels, both ultra deluxe hotels during our tour through India, but we actually enjoyed our stay at Aashyana Lakhanpal more. We were lucky to have a driver from Aashyana Lakhanpal meet us at the Goa airport and from that moment on, the service was excellent and the staff so pleasant and accommodating. I arrived ill from Hyderabad and the staff were so kind and took very good care of me, checking up on me in my room and bringing me special drinks, Indian therapeutic foods and even a hot water bottle. The owner was at the Villa and he kindly had his cooks make me special food. The property itself is a little oasis of quiet elegance. We stayed in the White Room in the main Villa, which has high quality furnishings and artwork. Our room was clean, very spacious with a large veranda, and very comfortable. The whole Villa is done in an elegant, understated way. We immediately felt relaxed, as we gazed over the foliage and palm trees, planted by the owner many years ago when he first discovered the property. A one minute stroll through the garden past the new and sparkling infinity pool took us right onto the wide expanse of beach. There are many kilometres of sandy beach and it is perfect for a vigorous walk or run or swim. The beach also has beach cafes and restaurants but it is not like Mexico, where you are constantly approached to buy something and the beach is wide enough so you walk along the beach quite a distance away from the beach cafes and restaurants. Leaving the property from the front, a short walk takes you to the main shopping street in that area: great access to both the beach and shopping/restaurants. The breakfasts were leisurely, plentiful and fresh and served in the open air dining room on the terrace of the Villa. There is an Indian spa on the property and both my husband and I enjoyed the amazing ayurvedic massage experience. We had a lovely stay at Aashyana Lakhanpal. It is a very special place with special people.
