“Superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

I had been Tarang in April & I found the place nice & far away from the buzz of life.The Devbagh beach is beautiful & in the evening we walked to the Island in Majali.The service is not 5 Star but the staff is friendly & very co-operative.The pool in the evening looked superb & the garden is excellent.I would recommend Tarang for chill,still & tranquil.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the pool view or the Maharaja Cottage u will really feel like a Maharaja.

To begin with, I would strongly recommend people to not go to this place. It is absolutely useless, a waste of money and time!
The so called "beach" there is very dirty. There is a "lake" behind the resort, which is no more than a filthy pond. The same goes to the rooms. They do have a restaurant which is very expensive, since there is really no other place to eat nearby. The resort itself is expensive. You would think that at these kind of prices you are being offered a beautiful place to stay with good service,etc, well, that is completely wrong!! Please do not go by their website info, they are really not worth it. I am surprised to see good reviews here. We went by these reviews and booked the place only to be shocked. We thought the bad reviews are just from a few unlucky ones, but God are they totally right about what they have written.
Once your there and you have realized there is nothing in the resort for you, and feel like venturing out, well, forget about that too. The place where the resort is located is not at all safe and its an absolute NO NO after sun down. There is no good transport. You may get an auto but they again take advantage of the remote situation to charge you as high as they can.
One important thing, once you book the place, there is just no way that gets refunded.Take my advice and please stay away from this place, unless you want to loose your money and a good holiday.
What would be best to do is visit Goa [which is about 2 hrs away] and just stop over to see Karwar, since there really is nothing else here.

Thanks to Majali beach resort for making this one of my most memorable holidays ever. We stayed there for two nights in October. We chose non AC rooms, as at this time of the year the weather is pretty comfortable. The resort is located in the middle of a fishing village and bang on the beach. At times you'll find only yourself at the beach. The location is superb. Manager Mr. Pramod and other staff are friendly to the greatest extent. There is no room service, though I didn't feel any need for that either. Cons, as may seem to some people, no room service, no alcohol, no TV at rooms. Pros, as I found, nice courteous and helpful people, awesome location, serenity and calmness, great food just like home cooked ones, cleanliness. Overall if you love to spend a few days away from the hustle bustles of city life you must visit Majali.

Room Tip: We stayed at non AC room, didn't have a problem. This place and Karwar as a whole have a little...

we stayed there for 1 day...thank god its only 1 day!
the location was awesome, thats the reason we booked the place. but the service and food is pathetic. there is no room service at all. breakfast was included in room rent, it's horrible and no hotel staff is available. cold and hard idlis . More over anything you ask (e,g, omlet instead of boiled egg) cannot be served(thats just one of many). I will never recommend this place to anyone.

When I selected the resort I was skeptical about the quality of service and the quality of the beach. I was there during the high monsoons and hence the water rides weren't permitted by law. I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of the beach. We were served with a good lunch on arrival. The menu is small but the food was authentic and served with great care. Breakfast is included in the price and other meals are charged. The manager takes personal care in preparing the food. He also personalised some services for us like setting up beach loungers and having a guy lookout for us while we enjoyed a swim in the sea. The resort also has a lake so you laze around and fish or firm up your upper body rowing a canoe. The beach is great. Its not crowded and there aren't hordes of locals staring at you while you are in the water. It is remarkably clean as well. The manager will help you out with almost anything. The icing on the cake was the beach cricket and volleyball. We had a great weekend.

Room Tip: We went for a simple non air conditioned room and it wasn't hot at all.

very calm n quiet place,u can sit back n enjoy the sea in front and lake behind ur cottage....the cottages are not luxurious as such.no tv , no room service, no beverages in a fridge(idk fo wat reason they have kept a fridge)...if u need something u can just call the manager,pramod, on his mobile number.hes a very nice guy,he helps u in whatever possible ways.when ur sleepin make sure your windows are sealed so that insects dont come in.
morning food is not at all bad,healthy , nutritious ,will fill your stomach!dinner was good too,try the chicken yellow in their menu.its kinda homely food i felt.
evening me n ma friends did kayaking in the lake,we dint get time to do other fun stuff like snorkelling,pedelling,fishing etc.(we did all dat in goa :P)
all in all we loved our stay at majali,u should give it a try!
and one thing id like to mention,before headin for majali i made a call to the sales office,mr.Abhay Pradhan to enquire about the resort.we were asked to deposit the whole amount in advance to their account.pls dont do that,they wont even let u cancel if u dint like the rooms.Better if u dont even speak to that guy !try to contact Mr.Pramod :)
