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...

The COCO resort at Bardez is very much a holiday home away from home.
