scope of improvement is what the aim is- the rooms needs to be upgraded or renovated which can help people feel value fr money. service quality has to improve which normally takes more than the reqd time. wi-fi connections will help the guests. all going to murud shud really write to the archelogical dept to maintain the janjira fort which is a master piece.

My wife & I travelled to Golden swan on 19th & 20th January 10.It was my 1st anniversary and was not able to take call about where to go till the last moment. After doing net surfing and reading reviews on Trip advisor, we finally decided to go to Golden swan,Alibaug – murud zanzira.After sailing from Gateway to Alibaug for about an hour, we caught a ST bus for Murud which took us to resort after a journey of around 2 hr 45 mts and checked in the late evening.
Resort ambience was very good and of 5 star category. We were allotted Beach facing room which was at walkable distance from main resort. We had dinner in d restaurant there and sat at a sea shore. Food was very tasty and made up of fresh vegetables. Inside the resort, there were many hammocks and swimming pool like benches where u can just lie down and simply forget about the time, just listening to music of waves. Also there were a bunch of Swans whom u can chase and play around.
The room allotted on an average was good but needs a little bit of improvement in bathing accessories (shower, gizer). There were few power cuts in a day but was made up by generator. Room service was also very friendly and of helping nature.
On an average, we were very happy with this short but sweet journey. Initially we just had a plan of 1 night but taking into account the travel time and wonderful time at resort, we extended it to 2 nights and decided to check out in early morning. I would also appreciate the hospitality of even Mumbai office people, where Ms.Trupti was really helpful. I would definitely recommend this resort if u are planning to go to Murud.

My wife and I stayed at Golden Swan in December this year. The location is good, just at the beginning of Murud, with a secluded, clean stretch of beach.

We'd booked back-facing rooms due to.non-availability of beach-facing rooms. We were initially given D4. This was a had room, with clothes and linen hung outside to dry. We were then shifted to a beach-facing room for one night, and a better back-facing room for the other night.

Service was excellent and friendly. The food was quite good, if a bit repetitive. The hotel does not serve alcohol but the staff are happy to chill bottles you might carry and then bring them to your room.

The downside is that it's a small property and there isn't anything to do apart from the beach. No pool either. So it was a little boring.

For the price they charge, I'd rather pay a little more and go to Prakruti Resort at Kashid for luxury stay with lots of things to do.

Loved Golden Swan. People and staff very friendly and helpful, nothing was too difficult to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Great location. On the beach facing Kasa Fort. We dropped in late in the evening and everyone was most accommodating and the rate was excellent as was the food.
The manager Shubhangi was so helpful, over and above the call of duty.
Recommend a stay here if you are in the Murud area.

It was a sudden plan for an outing.We had a quick net search and located Golden Swan Beach Resort in Murud, approx 150kms from B'bay.It was a tiring journey but the room we had booked was an dlx room which was absolutely cozy for a family,my child became busy with the cute ducks at the resort who can even bite if you fuss with them.The food was tasty and enjoyable.The location compliments the food.If work permits would like to have one more short trip in future.

The resort is located on the beach, with surprisingly clean waters although the sand looked as if it had been affected by the recent oil spill in alibag. The cottage was excellent with clean beds, clean bathrooms, and a pretty and spacious loft, all 7 of us settled in comfortably. The Air conditioning and TV were in fine order and worked well. The room service and housekeeping folks were prompt and efficient. The food was good and had decent variety for both Veggies/non veggies. It is difficult to get good food in rural konkan , but surprisingly Golden Swan buffet meals did not disappoint.
The play area was complete with swings, slides, hammocks etc and the kids and the young at heart will enjoy it.

I and my wife had a 2 nights stay at this resort. Below are some positives that we liked and enjoyed at this resort:-

1 - Nice location - On the beach
2 - Closer to all attractions in this area
3 - Good Food

The approach to this resort is very exciting. First a Catamaran from Mumbai to Mandwa, Then a bus and again a Bus / Auto Rickshaw to the resort..

Some improvements:-

1 - Rooms could have been slightly better on interiors

Cheers
