When you are a goa insider it helps to discover a tucked hideaway. Even though north goa has the reputation of fewer resorts coco shambhala takes service to a new level. We arrived on a monsoon evening and the staff was super efficient. Even though they were preparing for a party in a private villa their attention to detail was... More

My husband and I traveled to Goa for four nights in the beginning of September 2016. We were a little anxious about going to Goa during the Monsoon season but thought that we would... More

Four villas with own jacuzzi's and a nice pool. Home away from home in tropical Goa. Food and drinks were plentiful and well priced. You basically have your personal chef, cleaners,... More

My family and I spent 3 days at Coco Shamblaha. One of our best vacations ever! This place is without a doubt one of the best accommodations in Goa! The property itself is spectacular! The staff is extremely hospitable and cheerful. They have an ever smiling and helpful attitude. The food is excellent! They accommodated all our needs and requests.

It is true! All the reviews I had been reading were more than true! This is not a hotel, it is something better, your home away. Secluded in the middle of the jungle, but at the same time close to nice and colourful Goan villages, you'll find your villa and that incredible swimming pool awaiting for you. Everything was more...
