We went to this resort at the start of August and believe me its an awesome place to stay at. The rooms are big, clean and just enough space to adjust in. The food is bit expensive but I thoroughly loved the food either be the breakfast or lunch. Tastes awesome. The resort is just 2 mins far from the Nagoa beach which makes easy for one to to fro. The swimming pool is small but having beach around I bet you wont want to be in there. Also the people at reception are decent and ready to help with all the information required. All in all a must / best place to stay whenver in diu. Bingo !!

Visited this lovely Boutique Resort in Apr'13. We were 2 couples with 1 year old kids. Just loved the place - the ambiance is very pleasing. Service was good.....and food was Excellent. Location is just perfect as it is very close to the beach - yet a little distant from the hustle & bustle of public. Its ideal for a comfortable holiday & great value for money. Would definitely prefer staying here again as compared to other more popular resorts!!

The first thing that caught my attention about this place and staff was when I was corresponding with them for room reservations. Their offer letter started with alternate road directions to Diu because the usual road was in a bad condition due to rains. No other hotel took so much pains to inform and document out an alternate route. It saved us a lot of time when we finally travelled.

We also had to alter our reservation dates a day prior to travel and they were very helpful with altering the room reservations.

The hotel is a quaint little haveli kind of place, loved the way they have done up the restaurant.
We were initially allotted rooms on the ground floor because the reception staff was mindful of the fact that I was travelling with parents in their sixties.
However owing to the August weather the rooms were very damp and were smelling of dampness. The bed and covers were also damp. On request we were shifted to rooms on the first floor next day which were much better.

The food was awesome, though they have a limited menu, the quality and flavours were best of Diu. It is rightly rated as #1 restaurant of Diu.
We ordered non-veg as well as veg food and both were good. Indian as well as continental breakfast was well made, we also tried their pasta for dinner and that was equally well made.

The staff is well trained, very courteous and remember the guests' preferences which is a big plus.

I used their swimming pool twice and both times found it to be clean and well maintained. The pool is small - adequate for maybe two families using it together, but delightful!
Anyone reading this review if you jump into a pool in your underwear please refrain from doing that! It's not appealing at all.

The rooms and house keeping process needs some improvement. They don't provide a tea coffee maker inside the rooms or any room service. You can order tea coffee and drinks at their restaurant and take it up to your room.

There was always hot water in the taps and they have a generator for electricity backup.

Improvements can be made in terms of providing electric kettle in rooms, exhaust fans in bathrooms, a better facility to dispose waste - the open bins begin to smell, better quality of mattresses.

Whatever is the current setup the staff maintains it well. The feeling of living here is as if you're living in a home. It's value for money.

Room Tip: Only if you're staying during or soon after the monsoons then book rooms on the first floor, the...

Dear Ms. NehaKannan,
Thank you very much for taking time to write a detailed review about our hotel & one which describes us well & fairly. We also noted your useful suggestions on our feedback form.
Whilst ensuring that we retain our basic design philosophy & core values, we actually seek & need guest feedback to identify areas that need change to improve.
Our hotel is about 16 years old & some rooms are due for refurbishing, for which we have applied for permission from the local authorities.
The Hoka truly cares about its guests, as it says in our motto ‘Stay with someone who cares..’ & thus we are glad that you noticed & appreciated the staff’s attention to small details; such as ensuring that you took the correct route, ground floor rooms for your parents, among others that you so graciously mention.
We are trying to find an effective solution to dampness in the monsoon months in a few rooms & should be able to resolve this during the scheduled renovation soon.
We presently do serve only morning & evening tea/coffee in the rooms; however are considering providing a tea/coffee maker in the room as it would be convenient for guests.
We are glad that you enjoyed the pool & even more glad that you point out the importance of hotel guests wearing proper swimsuits. Whilst guests are briefed & we try to enforce some pool discipline & etiquette; unfortunately some slip by!
Once again thank you very much as your review is special with its details & clarity
We look forward to your next visit.
Best regards,
Hoka team

After a long search on internet for good hotel in diu, we filtered HOKA Island Villa. Thank God, the decision was proved right. The first thing you will notice about hotel will be its main entrance door, sitting lounge and a natural surroundings.

Rooms were excellent, cleaned and tidy with all necessary amenties, Bathrooms were properly sanitized.

Food, I highly recommend not to hunt for outside. Just give order in their kitchen. Although they have limited options but they are mouthwatering. Only thing is waiting time is too long....

At last, I would like to thank each and every staff of HOKA Island. May it be Dipendra, Ashok, Chef Rajesh (for Aloo Paratha in Breakfast) and all..

All in all a good place to stay....

Very good place to stay. I booked then same on reviews on TripAdvisor and I am happy with the stay. However f&b part can be improved by quality assurance on product as food quality is great at some time and not good on others. I had all my meals there and enjoyed most of them.

Dear Svasav, thank you very much for writing a feedback & good review about our place. We are happy that you had an enjoyable stay with us.
It is great to know that you appreciated our food & had all your meals at the hotel. As regards variation in quality; were there any particular dishes that did not meet your expectations or was it the same recipe that you feel was not standardised? The Hoka food is cooked fresh & not gravy based & so slight variation does occur; however the food should be tasty always! And whilst we take great pains; your feedback is required to ensure quality.
Thank you & warm regards
