Reviewed January 19, 2014

Aprehensive on arrival as the owner, Abul, took us to our little red hut and didn't explain anything to us. The huts themselves weren't particularly well made but they were clean & had two good sized double rooms, a huge outdoor bathroom and a nice little veranda. They are at the far end of the beach by the estuary and so enjoy a more tranquil pace out of the main drag of tourists, hotels & bars. Sara called in with blankets and explained that there was no restaurant but she would happily make us anything we wanted and bring it to the hut. The beach has lots of friendly cows, a few scrappy dogs and hundreds of tiny little starfish which look like they have been stenciled into the golden sand.
Take a torch as the walk across the beach at night is lit only by the moon and a few twinkling lights from other huts. The sea gets rough at night so that silent sleep you are expecting...have a few drinks..this will help with the crashing waves and noises of jungle creatures.
All in all I would love to return to Agonda & Romance Beach Huts. Many other Huts seem to surround a bar area or restaurant and overlook diners & revellers rather than that stunning beach landscape. If you want to escape the rat race...but with a few token rats (Well it is India)...this is the place to unwind.

These huts are great. They are very simple little shacks at the end of Agonda beach. As the huts are at the end of the beach they're in a very quiet spot, which is really relaxing.

It's a little difficult to find but it's right of St Anne's church and the last set of beach huts right down at the end of the dirt road, just before the bridge.

The staff are very helpful, particularly a bloke called Sandy if you need anything ask him then haggle on the price, there's always room for negotiation. He literally has everything, taxi, boat trips etc etc.

Agonda beach is really beautiful, it's very quiet and not spoilt yet which is really refreshing. You can just walk along the beach and you'll find safe eateries with no issue.

If I return to Agonda I would definitely stay at the huts again.

One final point to add I think this was the only hotel I stayed in that didn't ask me to write a review on trip advisor, which was really refreshing.

As of new year 2014 romance beach huts was not fully reestablished in its new location. Huts pretty tatty and no restaurant. Not at all as advertized on web site. I think this was due to Abul the owner having a bad motorbike accident and not being able to finish the work. But seemed to be working hard so best to get update on current stuation..New location is at extreme N. end of beach which may be a good or bad thing depending on how far away from other restarants and shops you want to be.

It is unbeleivable to imagine that a place which looks so humble can offer such an experience. Located right on the beach it gives you a chance to walk into the sea and soak your feet at any time of the day and night. It gives you the privacy and quiet you desire since it is located on the right flank of the beach with no more huts beside it - just the river and the steep hill.

Sara the host is gracious and will help you out with anything. Have to mentoin the food was amazing!

The only thing which i think they can do better is to make sure that there are no nails popping up from the floor (since the huts are makeshift and temporary - but kinda that adds to the experience!).

Room Tip: Room closest to the entrance has the best Wifi, but the one at the end will give you a feeling that...

It is said, the road to PARADISE is through a rough patch. By checking the reviews of so many people over here in TA, that NOBODY RESPONDS to email (due to the fact that there is bleak internet connection and why shouldnt it be), it may seem like it is indeed a rough patch,BUT IF YOU LET GO ALL THIS and be a LITTLE PATIENT , you can find yourself in the MIDST OF PARADISE. Ohh yes, it is paradise.

It is located on the northern most tip of Agonda and it is the last standing hut towards north of the beach and is the BEST PLACE for SOMEONE SEEKING SOLITUDE and spend some quality time with family. On GOOGLE MAPS, you check the area where a rivulet enters the sea-its just a few metres from that point. Since, no motorable roads connect to this quiet HUT, it is RECOMMENDED for people who prefers PEACE,TRANQUILITY and ULTIMATE QUIETNESS.

Imagine a SELF MADE HUT, not made to perfection, but which sits on the lap of the beach, practically you just need to lie down on your bed and look at the sea and hear the waves, you wouldnt want any LUXURY since you have already reached the EPITOME OF AWESOMENESS.

FOOD was fabulous since it was home made by the owners.

You go there and stay and if you are not embraced by the simple yet marvelous atmosphere, you can head into the Biggies down south.

RECOMMENDED FOOD:Pancakes, Chicken Biryani and Prawn Curry.

BEST THING is that you call up the owners directly. Number can be found on their website. PLEASE NOTE , OVERALL NETWORK RECEPTION is Poor there. Speak to the owners directly instead of through Agoda.

Room Tip: All rooms are on the Beach. Choose anyone.

As said on his forum it is very hard (impossible) to get in contact with them prior arrival. When we arrived there was no room avaliable :-(.....despite the fact we had booked (via Agoda) in advance and paid a long time before arriving Obviously they didn´t care, sel´sl rooms who ever comes first, pays most, stays longest time etc.. What pathetic people who run this place that can´t manage the most important thing of running a hotel/hostel - customer care. Stay Away!

For very low budget extremely quiet accomodation this place is perfect, however to call the huts premium is misleading and the picture looks lovely from the outside but the huts are basically rickety shacks, the only thing Premium being the large size compared to other huts. Stuck right on the end of Agonda it is also relatively inaccessible. Having stayed 2 weeks on Agonda I would summarise that there are much nicer beachfront huts at similar and even lower prices along Agonda beach. Sorry for the not-so-positive review, but the external pictures combined with the word premium lead people to expect something better than what the hut itself offered, and that seems not quite fair. We left after one night.
