“Wonderful beach, average huts”
Reviewed February 23, 2010

I stayed for 9 nights in January with my 5-year-old, and we loved the spot, the balcony, the value, but didn't like the very hard bed, the open gaps both in floor, walls and ceiling/roof. I know some huts look nicer than the one we had and have less gaps, and they promised to fix it better next season. Its excellent for young people, but I wouldn't recommend it to my parents or to families with small kids. Some nights with mosquitoes and luckily we brought our own net for the bed cause the one that was there was dirty and had big holes in it, and we had a mouse which nibbled first biscuits and then my backpack! Good people and service, excellent location right at the beach and just beside the good restaurant Gratitude!

My boyfriend and i stayed at Om Sai for 9 days and we will definitly come back again. Gurav was great. Nilesh was AMAZING. The satff could not do enough for us (pick up and drop off at the airport)The restaurants aong the beacjh served the best goan food i have ever tasted. Beach husts were great. I loved my first ever experience in Goa and will definitly come back.

If you are looking for a quiet beach that is close to the action stay at Om Sai Agonda.

I will recommend Om Sai to anyone who will listen.

The location of Om Sai is perfect. Agonda beach is very soft, very much less busy than Palolem or Patnem, and Om Sai is located in the quite part of quiet Agonda. So there u have it. A perfect place to wind down and breathe the breeze from the sea. There is only one hut that is actually beach front, but the other six huts are lined up towards the sea, still with beach sand underneath, but if you want real beach front hut, then make sure get the right one. For us, this didnt matter, you spend every wakening hour at the beach anyhow :-)

The place is formally run buy a guy named Gaurav, but the man of the match is the boy Nilesh who runs the place from morning to evening and is always there and greeting you with a big smile and an outstanding service. He is absolutely something else and all minor defects of the place is covered up by his fantastic attitude. The place would not be the same without him!

The huts are clean and fine, but thats about it as well.. I mean, some interior design changes would not be uncalled for, for example increase of the cozyness, but its still absolutely okay!

So, its what you can ask for, you hare a few steps away from a empty beach, only inhabited by cows trying to chew you girlfriend's gossip magazines, so you will feel tip top all the way at Om Sai. Beware of crow's sounding in the morning though!

They do not have any resturant, but just a couple of meters away is a place called Gratitdue which is okay to have brekfast and easy lunch. Their dog's called Luna.

Enjoy! Nilesh, your picture is on its way!

picked up from Panaji (on time!) by friendly driver and driven through some spectacular scenery, ending up at agonda beach. seems that we got there just before the season really got into full swing, meaning that there were lots of places open to eat/drink at, but not that many people on the beach... perfect for us, as we'd chosen agonda to get away from it all. restaurants and other facilities (money exchange, internet, various shops) are split between the beachfront itself and the little track that runs parallel to the shoreline, all within 15 mins walk from om sai.

the huts themselves are basic, but pretty well maintained - including a large lockable cupboard, hot/cold water in the shower (it has to be said that we didn't get much hot water out of it, but that wasn't really a problem in 35 degree heat), comfortable bed (with mosquito net) and a cute little balcony - our hut faced the sea, so we could sit out and watch the dolphins/eagles/bats (depending on the time of day) in comfort.

we were well looked after by Nilesh, who seems to run the place while the actual boss Gaurav disappears off to Margao etc... Always attentive and offering to clean our hut, book us taxis/rickshaws, arrange boat trips (but never in a hassly way) or just hang around and chat, Nilesh was a complete godsend and we were genuinely sad to leave him at the end of our stay!

recommended places to eat/drink: Babu's (on the road - stunning meat curries and fresh fish dishes); chattai (at the north end of the beach - great aloo gobi and chilli chicken); simrose (south end of beach - great for afternoon drinks, snacks and friendly staff).

also recommend popping in to Shaan's little handicrafts shop on the road... lovely things, very cheap, no hassle to buy and shaan was great to chat to.

if you stay in agonda you MUST visit Cabo De Rama fort - it's shockingly beautiful (and really hot... don't go in the middle of the day!). we also spent an evening in palolem, which was lovely to look at but a bit too high octane for us.

Om Sai beach huts has everything one could imagine a beach hut to have and is the perfect relaxation holiday. The owners and staff are amazing and helpful and Nelaish (the young manager of the resort) is nothing less than fabulously awesome and will fulfil your every requirement and wish. Gaurav (the owner) is a true gentleman and is so welcoming. I would firmly recommend that if anyone is thinking of visiting Agonda and renting a beach hut, they should - without hesitation - choose Om Sai, and stay for as long as you can. You will never want to leave, because you will be in pure paradise verging on utopia. Unforgettable.

It's taken me 50 years but finally I have found what to me is my ideal holiday destination. If your idea of a perfect holiday includes unspoilt beaches, perfect weather, fabulous choice of authentic Indian food, being surrounded by people who can't do enough for you, drifting off to sleep & waking up within earshot of the sound of waves, getting as close to the local culture as possible, then whilst this is not 5 star luxury, neverthless this resort gets top marks.
Easy to book direct over the internet the owner Guarav is helpful and easy to deal with. Nilesh who looks after the site at Agonda is charming and goes out of his way to ensure your holiday experience is the best.
Being our first time in Goa, my wife and I had arranged 4 days at Agonda Bach and 3 days further north in Candolim. We will certainly be returning to Agonda and my advice if you want the above is stay in South Goa and forget the North!
I cannot sing their praises enough.

Me and my girlfriend had initially planned to stay in Agonda for 3 nights, but we liked it so much that we decided to stay for a week. The huts were nice and clean, and had attached bathrooms. The half sea-view huts were reasonably priced as well at Rs800 (we got a 10% discount for a 1 week stay). Nilesh, who looks after the 7 huts, was very helpful, and always smiling. Would love to go back there again next year.

  • Liked — Closeness to the beach
  • Disliked — difficult to get there by bus/expensive by taxi from train station/airport
