Reviewed March 2, 2014

We were very impressed. I've never stayed in a similar place before. The price was also good. We stayed in one of the tree houses next to the beach. The staff was very friendly and the food good. The other guests seemed nice people. The location just on the beach is great. But don't expect much from the tree house, it is just that, a bamboo platform high up with mattresses and pillows where you can put your backpack and sleep. It has a little table also where they serve food to your room, which was nice. I strongly don't recommend doing the laundry there, as they have no system to remember which laundry is from which room and you have to find your clothes yourself, which is not nice.

Dear Guest, thank you for the good review ! Tree houses remain till date our prime staying place and attraction for all budget tourists, who can not afford expensive hotels right on water with a view of beach, in the middle of Anjuna beach, with the nice breeze blowing gently all around, each tree house is of a length and width of minimum 8 feet X 8 feet, with comfortable mattresses,pillows, bad sheets, mosquito nets if you want, double socket electric connections, wifi, cushion, with expensive colorful but eye catching fabrics and curtains etc.. and on the roof the shade of coconut and Casurina trees. Climbing on these tree houses will give you a feeling of Robin hood ! One thing is true, Tantra is certainly not a laundry place nor we want it to become one, where cloths hanging all around ! Our own laundry of bed sheets, pillow covers and blankets, we get it done from a professional laundry and pay a fortune ! We request our lovable guests to not impose their laundry on us. We do oblige our esteemed guest to do their laundry only, if they are too lazy and not willing to spend a fancy price, to go to a proper and professional laundry shop, who does the good job with a good and fancy price, very close to Tantra. We certainly are not meant to be a laundry and end up making a mess of your designer's outfit. However having said all this with good sense humor, we will be happy to provide our guests lots of water and bucket to do their laundry and dry it too. So all stay happy, we and the guests who loves to wear daily washed fresh and crispy cloths. Love to all and happy climbing on tree houses.

When visiting Goa I had the pleasure to stay in Nirvana Nature, in beautiful Anjuna beach. This is a very different place from all others I could find in Anjuna. Attention to detail is the name of the game here, what you can witness in the very good service and in the set up and decoration of the place. First of all you are there just in front of the beach, for a very reasonable price, being able to soak up the wonderful ambience of Anjuna from morning until its beautiful sunset, when you're surprised by a small cerimony performed by the hostel staff each day to thank for one more beautiful day and sunset (at least that's the way I took it). This is not a hotel but a down to earth place, where you can chose between simple beach-huts and overnighting in the tree-houses. The bathrooms are common and simple, but they are clean and do the job. During the day and until you want at night you can also spend your time in the restaurant just in front of the water, siting for example in the tree houses. The restaurant food is good with prices in line with the rest of the area. The only down-side of this place, in my opinion, is that it can be noisy on wednesday mornings, as it is just next to the market, so if you like to sleep in during the morning you may not be able to do so. If you are into partying, the main party places of Anjuna are also very near, walking distance along the beach. Overall I recommend staying in this place, where you can lazy out in a pleasent environment in the middle of the nature.

Dear wonderful guest, thank you for wonderful review, one small correction, though whats, in a name? Our place where you first stayed at Anjuna beach, Goa is called Tantra, and after Tantra, you went to our second place near Gokarna on Nirvana beach, and that place is called Nirvana Nature. About every Wednesday morning little noise of flea market is our plus and minus both. Plus, because this one day the whole Goa arrives here from morning 9 am till evening 7 pm and this beach, this market becomes so much full of life colors spectacles and at one place one guest can do all the souvenir acquiring in one go, for family and friends and have a good choice of selection as well as good bargain, if one like to do. Minus, is some noise, but, its the noise of full of life and hope of human's survival and making things available for guests, visiting India. This Flea market represent entire India and its handicrafts, its color, its people and guest from around the world. It is the first original Hippie market started in India in 70s, when the Hippies made Goa their home. Since then tradition continues.

Firstly, I couldn't disagree more with the previous negative review posted. After travelling around India for 4 weeks, we ended our trip in Anjuna. We decided to change where we stayed as soon as we saw the beautiful tree houses at Tantra. It is for travellers who would love a little bit of the outdoors. Sleeping with the sea breeze across your face, listening to the waves in your own private little tree hut, was our favourite experience in India. Opening the curtains to tree tops over looking the beach. Who could ask for more?? We ate here many times, and we thought the food was good, and we were fine. Furthermore.. we became quite chatty with the lovely owner of the place. Long hours chatting over chai teas with one of the most generous and interesting characters we met during our trip. We realised on the last couple of days that our cards had been blocked, and we had barely enough money to get to the airport. Kamal, the owner, was so caring and worried about us, that he gave us dinner, when we weren't planning on having any, and even gave us a little money incase we ran into any trouble. He also gave us his phone number, and told us to call him if anything happened. He gave us a container of food to take with us to the airport in case we got hungry. This generosity was more than any I have received in any place I have stayed ever! Even without the lovely Kamal, Tantra's staff were very friendly, the atmosphere was so relaxing, calm and unique. It was the perfect end to our trip, and we cannot wait to return one day.

Dear Guest, thank you for kind words. It is natural of human, that not only, one should take care of the guest staying with you, but also of those, who are not your guest. Our philosophy at Tantra is that observe if anyone has a difficult situation, then go all out of your limits and do, what one can. We are human first and hotel people after. We must care of all, show our love, have tolerance and that makes life wonderful. Good Karma is a chain reaction and it will continue, business or no business, so help us god.

Three of us stayed at tantra and all three got severe food poisoning from the food here. We tried to inform the staff but they didn't want to know and acted incredulously. We were fine before we came, ate dinner at tantra and then all three got sick. Shame, as the place was quite charming otherwise.

We need to aware to, our future guests, that, there is a sustained campaign by some wasted interest, who are time to time just writing one negative review to malign and damage our reputation for the reasons best known to them ! An average 100 to 150 guests and 20 employees eats at Tantra every day and no problem. We maintain maximum possible hygiene in our kitchen for our guests and for ourselves. You can be rest assured about our quality of food and freshness. Tantra is always full of people, who comes for dining.

We stayed on the tree house and I must say it was quite an experience. Property is right there on the Rocky anjuna beach, and really close to the Wednesday flea market. Staff is very good and polite. had breakfast too here and must say restaurant is also worth a shot. they also have some sea-sun beds where we had some drinks and snacks while bathing in the Not so safe anjuna beach. The manager was quite accommodating as he kept our luggage in the locker for one extra day on our request. In my opinion improvement is required in TOILETS and mattresses, as toilets werent up-to the mark and a bit more comfort should be there in the tree houses. Overall a recommended property.

Room Tip: Go for Tree houses !!

Dear Guest, thank you for wonderful review, soon, all the tree houses will have more comfort, as we are gonna add thick foam mattresses on top of thick cotton mattresses, so double comfort for our guests. Regarding common toilets, I would love to make state of art toilets at Tantra, but Goa government environmental department has put limitations on beach properties, that, whatever structures we put, made of Pinewood, Nilgiri wood be it cottages or toilets or tree houses all has to be dismantled every seven months and rebuild in the month of October. So this is the best we could do about toilets and showers on beach. Thanks again.

tantra beach is a very special place. we came for the beatutiful beach houses and stayed far longer than expected. the surrounding area is amazing and the place itself as well. you can rest the whole day in the open bamboo shacks wich offer a great athmosphere plus an extraspecial view on the sea while the friendly staff delivers delicious food and drinks for a fair price.
thank you kamal for creating this great place to stay&meet!

So glad we came across this place on the quieter end of the beach! I wish I'd had the chance to spend a couple of nights here, but we only came for dinner. These well constructed huts on stilts are so picturesque and the staff here were lovely. Food took a little bit of time to come out, but it only gave us more of a chance to enjoy the atmosphere and the view and was quite tasty when it did come out. Not only that, but it was quite reasonably priced and served with a smile. If I were to come back to Anjuna, I'd definitely stay a couple of nights here!

Oh wonderful dear guest, million thanks for wonderful review, but, now, I would like to add some humour, what you will say about some guest, who end-up at Tantra while carrying a Delhi belly from Delhi or elsewhere, after eating in street and tries to sprinkle all the Delhi belly liquid with anger at Tantra to scare future guests and on top of that, using upset stomach as pretension to not to pay money for stay and when asked payment, then use this forum to write negative remark such as avoid. Even India the land of instant Karma do not deter them to overrule conscious, as a result Delhi belly continues as long as traveling lasts in India.
