“Probably better in december-january”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2012

We stayed in Palolem in april 2012 and booked 6 nights at Sevas, but we just stayed one night. This is because the place is not on the sea and it was impossible to sleep because of the hot temperature and barking dogs at night. The structure is anyway good, clean, basic and in the middle of a fantastic jungle. We had a bad experience when we booked scooters: they are very cheap (200rupees per day) but between the first and second day of rent some of the guys working there emptied the tank stealing the petrol that we bought the day before. So, if you rent a scooter, don't buy more than 2 litres

In the end of my 4 weeks travel in India, I was happy to discover this place.

It´s huts so simple with mosquito net the separate sizable hut for toilet and shower with the sky as the ceiling gave me a highly inspiration with the sunlight going through the walls as well during the day. It reminded me of the movie Kim Ki-Duk called; Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter ... and Spring".

With it´s silence and distant sound of the waves, it beauty of the setting around the huts, the singing birds it is a-great-get-away-place from the noisy motors upon street of to many places in India (and South East Asia) as drivers are using to much of their horn.

This place become my my best winter-days, though it was like a hot summer in Denmark.

P.S. I as a vegan did even find great courses at their restaurant,-it was the best I tasted in the province of Goa!

I took a risk by paying a deposit for a hut to reserve over the busy new year period via a money transfer however everything worked out fine. We also knew that one night would be in a neighbouring resort's hut however this turned into two nights - one of which was free!

The huts are much better than most with an outside dining area, lounger, nice plants and large living space.

Didn't eat at the restaurant due to a large amount of mosquiotes around in the evening. Buy mosquioto coils as soon as you arrive.

Oerall a great place to stay.

Very simple, casual and ecofriendly place but very nice and cheap accommodation (800RP/night(for 2 people)
Only "manual" shower such as just poring water over you and same goes for the toilet but by far the best toilet in my experience in India.
If Im coming back,Im staying here again!
Bring earplugs though, alot of noise in the night time(but it is everywhere) Dogs barking,birds and other animals :-).

Room Tip: You live in huts with just bamboo walls so don´t keep any things of value there(you can hand them in...

I stayed at Seva for one night only because they had no huts with showers available. The resort, although rustic and basic,is extreamly clean and well tended, with a lot of attention to details. The staff is very and helpfull on every level, especially the kind manager. Will be back!

Completely diff. kind of experience staying in huts which is far better then other crowded hotels/huts in north goa.
Excellent place to stay where you can take a break from your busy life, enjoy privacy and can relaxe at sea side. We enjoyed staying so much that we extended our Goa stay.
It's worth paying this amount which is close to beach.
Would recommend one should enjoy such huts experience at Goa which is rare to find in urban city.
People at seva's were helpful n kind. The only thing they need to improve is their food quality though u may find other restraunt nearby but stay u cnt miss here.

Sevas is a quiet, rustic jungle haven with a caring, attentive staff of very kind people. The restaurant turns out food fit for kings, especially lunch/dinner when fresh seafood is on the menu.

The huts all have porches with lounges and seating area, overhead fans and mosquito nets, plus private outdoor bathroom. Five minutes walk to the beach...scenic. We even saw wild boars and a buffalo. Beach has lots of restaurants, shops, and kayaking/boat trips are not to be missed. We saw dolphins.

High-speed internet is also available, which seems pretty ironic given its location in the middle of the jungle...
