I am writing this update in order to inform future travelers about this place, a bit in detail. My wife and I wanted break from corporate life and we decided to visit this place for 2night 3 day visit. Initially we were thinking of Jungle Lodges but we felt that overpriced. Majali beach is 9km from Karwar town. The mode of transport is not bad.
Avoid going there during summer. We went during March second week and we were sweating continuously. Night is little better, but yet the humidity will irk you. The resort has AC cottage, non-ac cottage, tree house and standard rooms. We stayed in a tree house. The place was clean. They have a pond (man made, salt water) behind the rooms. Its shallow water and safe. One can do kayaking for free. The view from any room will not let you watch sunset from room (not a big deal). The beach is not 'private', as fishermen and other local people often visit/travel around it.
We are vegetarians and food was bad. We had very less option to eat from. The food was bland. So, overall, restaurant is over priced, but there is no alternative to eat outside. One has to depend on the in house restaurant. They have hammock and beach wooden reclining bench to relax. The resort doesn't have any water sport facility, absolutely nothing. The activity must be done at Karwar beach, which needs travel and need to be planned by us independently. Avoid this place if you are visiting beach for some adventure. Staff members are courteous. One can visit to Tilmatti beach (5km ride/walk followed by 20min mild trek - each side). This place is surprisingly very clean. One can hire an auto for 300 Rs and the driver will ferry you in the vehicle, guide you along the trek to reach the beach and back. Its good experience.
