We chose to stay here as our friends were getting married at this hotel resort.
It is located in the south part of Goa, so it's quieter, less bars & tourist areas to hang out with. It's more of an area to rest & relax away from the hustle and bustle of everything. If you want to go to North Goa, it's easy to order a taxi or utilize guest services to hire a car.
It's a beautiful resort, the pool is really well designed but it's too bad it's not overlooking an ocean view. We ate lunch at the hotel and the Indian dhal was sooo good. The staff were all very friendly and service was impeccable. They remember that I prefer masala chai and how I liked my eggs every morning that I was there. The chefs even went out of their way to make congee the last morning we were there in respect for our craving for a Chinese breakfast.
The Sangeet ceremony was held at the resort & the space was beautifully decorated...however, the food was the best part of the event. Even the local Guests were impressed at the quality of the food and it was far superior to the food that was being served at the White Sands the following evening.
The resort doesn't have a private beach as after the the Tsunami, there are a lot of restrictions and levies involved with hotels maintaining a private beach. There is a very efficient shuttle service that takes you to the closes access to the public beach (5 min ride) and there's a resort staff member that attends to the guests' needs in the designated area. The area is well maintained and when you are ready to leave, they call for the shuttle service to take you back.
Overall, it was a great stay at the resort!
