“This is a one off!”
Reviewed May 13, 2011

Arrived through "Rustic India Tours" at the end of the season and were well received by the staff and owners.
Dwarka is hard to evaluate as it is so unique. At the end of the season all the cabins are stripped down and put into storage for tthe monsoon season then the camp is rebuilt for the next.season..This means the place is basic in construction but what it lacks in sophistication it makes by giving you a truely relaxed and comfortable stay.
Swimming in the warm lagoon is not to be missed and is a unique experience. The food is excellent and the whole stay well worth it.

Nicely done huts and very friendly team of staff, on a pretty beach where river meets the sea. Staff make a huge effort to give you a comfortable stay, by fetching buckets of hot water for your shower and setting up an evening fire on the beach.
A very quiet and picturesque place - until the day trippers arrive. Everyday boats and coaches arrive bringing day trippers from big hotels which does change the atmosphere completely. They come to eat and drink at a large restaurant that shares the beach, and the staff at Dwarka do a good job of preventing them wandering through the Dwarka site.
However, it makes for good people watching, and after they've gone home it's peaceful again.
They encourage you to arrive by taxi arranged by the management as it's a bumpy road. But if you're close by it is also possible to arrive by boat - just look for the white tents - it's next door.

To get to Dwarka you have to drive along an unsurfaced road and then walk down into a jungle valley. As a result, you really do feel cut off from the hectic, touristy buzz you expect when you're in Goa. The valley, sweet water lagoon and beach were stunningly beautiful and the atmosphere at the camp was both relaxed and welcoming at the same time as being refreshingly low key and subtle. The huts themselves were very clean and airy and we thoroughly enjoyed being perched among the tress listening to all the wildlife. Some people may not like the limited avaiabilty of electricity, however I felt this added to the charm and tranquility of the camp and its environmentally conscious ethos.

The staff were very helpful throughout our stay and were interesting to talk to, making us feel thoroughly welcome and providing delicious food at the same time as giving us space to enjoy the peaceful location. In short, this was my favourite experience during a wonderful stay in Goa and I would really recommend it to anyone who wants a bit of relaxation out of the ordinary in Goa.

Room Tip: Electricity provided between sunset and 2.30 am.

The best about this place is its loction. Just simply in Paradise. The staff is also great very friendly and the huts are nice although simple. Food is excellent. And the mobile phone connection is dreadful! What a lovely spot to disconnect!! Welcome to paradise!
One minus. For me the beds were just too hard.

When we arrived after a long drive, I felt like I was in a tropical paradise that is unexpected in the chaos of India. The huts are a perfect place to stay for people who want to relax, read a book, and just leave mobile and internet access and stress behind. The beach is particularly amazing because there is no access to the street so you have no one harassing you to buy their trinkets. It's exactly what I was looking for. I did yoga every morning with Subash on the beach and loved it. I have to disagree with the comment below about the "servants" running the place. The staff really could not have been any nicer and more helpful.They even played chess with us. It would be nice if Dwarka had a book in the room or on their site that explained things like electricity, hot water, cost for pick up from airport, etc - but honestly, It's not the Intercontinental and if you are that type of traveler then maybe this isn't for you. One thing their website does not tell you is where they are and how far from the airport they are really far south on Kola beach. The closest major beach towns are Agonda and Palolem. Dwarka is on Kola/Honeymoon beach. And the drive to the actual resort is on a dirt road - so be prepared because it's easy to think you are being kidnapped when you don't know where you're going down that road.
And yes, last but not least - the place next door is cheaper and looks similar, but a friend of mine who stayed at both places describes "it's raunchy and the crowd is annoying".

Dwarka is a wonderful setting. Clean , neat and friendly staff. The massage was exceptionally good.Food was always tasty. I did read an earlier coment fo one Mr. Singh where in he mentioned the staff working as servents. It is sad that in this day and age, people still look at life through such a such myopic medival ways. All I can say that Clement and his pretty wife have created one of the most wonderful spots in Goa. I was there with my wife and two young childreen and we did not want to go back.
Keep it up and all the best.

I thought we would never get there but when we did..wow, absolutely beautiful, peaceful, tranquil, and very basic and rustic adorable huts, with hammocks out front, set on a lagoon, with ocean views!! Nice place to come to chill and relax..food was alright, but most amazing was the atmosphere, really enjoyed our 1night stay and highly recommend for a different experience in Goa!! Just gorgeous!!
