“beautiful rooms, good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

We had been the only guests, because off-season, but there had been at least 10 service people. All very friendly but not flashy. Prices are absolutely reasonable. Nothing to complain about. Teh location is very quiet. It is a 20 minute walk to the beach, but interesting through the neighborhood and dschungel. If you have a car or bike, no problem at all. Good taxi service, good food. You can have breakfast whenever you want.

This new boutique hotel with 4 star facilities is close to Varca beach , South Goa. The staff is very courteous and make you feel you've met your expectations. The hotel has 22 suites all done up with taste and each with a different theme. Food is again well upto expectations, and that's equally complimented by good service.
The speciality restaurant & Bar have all the best of cuisine & brands to offer well within an affordable price. I stayed in Feb 2012 and have suggested this hotel to many of my friends.
The Beds make you feel so comfortable you can't express as it's a different feeling altogether.

Room Tip: All suites are very good , but try if you can get the ones with a view of the pool.

Never in my life have I been as badly or blatantly ripped of as I was in The Emerald Forest (a very grand name for a distinctly un-grand establishment in an awful location). Upon checking out, I discovered that I had been charged more than double the agreed rate, and billed over £100 per night. (The best five star hotels in the area don’t cost much more than that.) The management had filled in the paperwork with a different rate, and proudly said that I had signed it when I checked in. My complaint was met with a snake-like smile and intimidation, so I had no alternative other than to pay and get out of there.

As a seasoned world traveler, including 12 visits to India, this is the first time I have encountered such shocking practice, and the first time I have ever had a head-on problem in a hotel. The place was completely empty, so I should have known something was up. Enquiries locally confirm that they have a seriously bad rip-off reputation and that the few guests they have managed to snare have complained to local taxi drivers and traders.

Thank God I was only passing through for 3 days, otherwise I hate to think what they would have charged to my card. I have made an official complaint to the police and to the local tourism authorities. Stay well away.
