I loved everything about this place, from the hobbit huts, the nightly frogs in the bathroom, the food (the thali, which changes each day, is excellent) and the amazing massages!
The standard pods were booked up, so we (a couple) stayed in a family pod. It was a great size and done out beautifully. Breakfast was delivered each morning outside the pod, which was lovely (and romantic) start to the day.
The staff were helpful in organising taxis and scooters to help us explore Goa. The waiters in the restaurant by the beach were very sweet and friendly and mixed a mean cocktail!
If only there were two hammocks for each pod... They were sooooo comfy but we could have done with one each!
