This hotel caters purely for Asian customers, whilst I was there I had my iPhone stolen from a taxi I used outside the hotel. That said I can't fault the service which was first class, everyone wanted... More

Great ambience, neat and clean. Spacious rooms (toilets were bit stinky, drain smell was entering back to toilet due to wrong design. However, staff supplied us room fresheners to make us feel comfortable ). Clean swimming pool and changing rooms. Choices of restaurants in the hotel. Food is expensive and the masala used to prepare xacuti was not so fresh.... More

Rooms were very spacious with a great touch of Indian culture. Interiors of bathroom were extravagant but the tub was not clean. Every hotel in India follows Indian style of fixing a jet in bathrooms but for some reason this resorts expects only foreign guests though max crowd is Indian in the hotel. Swimming pool was not clean and not... More

This is good place to stay but it's a little bit out of the main beach. The resort has two pools and two restaurants and apparently is way better than some other places in Goa. Personnel is very polite and very professional and speaks good English. In addition they have good gym and spa. Some cons are that the Internet... More
