We came during Monsoon season, so it wasn't the ideal time. This hotel is a breath of fresh air. We were staying at another "boutique" hotel, but the hotels in Goa use this term loosely. The hotel is a vegetarian only hotel, which wasn't a problem, because their food was out of this world good, and I've been living in India for over a year now.
The grounds are what really make this place. The pool is serene and the pictures don't do it justice. We were swimming when the sky erupted and this huge waterfall, just fell from the sky. It was really cool swimming in the pool during a monsoon.
On the upper floors they have their restaurant. The menu wasn't particulary expansive, but everything we ordered was spot on delicious.
The rooms were sparse but well appointed. They have a separate shower and toilet room. The beds were comfortable.
I would really like to go back during season, because there was a whole other level with lounge chairs and hot tubs.
Finally, the host Hanut is about as welcoming as you can get. If you've travelled throughout India, you'll know that service is funny thing...either they hover and you want them to go away, or you order something and 20 minutes later it shows up. Hanut really understands that service is meant to be prompt and available, not overpowering. He sets the right vibe. I accidentally left my phone in one of the cabs and he fedexed back to me...very lucky and very nice.
There aren't a lot of rooms and I would definitely book again...it's just enough out of the way, but close enough to the scene in Northern Goa to enjoy yourself at whatever pace you want.
