“Paradise Lost”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

Stayed with my girlfriend at the Agonda White Sand for 4 days em early December after a 2 weeks travel throught Rajasthan. Set in a beautiful part of Agonda Beach, the hotel was a paradise. The rooms are excelent with a big and confortable bed, the bathroom seems like your own private garden and the beach is just a step away.
All the hotel staff is exemplar, always with a smile on their face. They are an essential part of what make this an excellent hotel. Another excellent part of the Agonda White Sand is it´s fantastic restaurant. We tried most of the indian and goan dishes on the menu and every dish was tasty and to cry for more.
In summary, the best days of our trip to India, as well as the best food. We were sorry to have to leave, but will return for sure.

Room Tip: All rooms have the same configuration. Room nearer the beach have a little less privacy as they are...

We were in Agonda white sand in November, it was one of the best places we had our vacation. The rooms were clean and big enough, huge bathroom with colourful fish in the pond, which looks beautiful..... Wow. The location is amazing for the prefect sunset and view is just divine.... We also stayed in Agonda Villas and is fantastic view from the bed itself..... They made these villas so Eco- friendly that its unbelievable. All the plants and trees were well taken care of, so it's look green and healthy. We had our breakfast, lunch and dinner in their restaurant, great food by the way, can't stop eating.... For sure I do admit and that I gained 4kgs.....ha ha ...

Thanks to Aneesh and Shaan, as they made our time in Goa a perfect vacation and will be recommending my friends to visit Agonda White Sand.... Also to mention is Sonu, one of the staff member, he was so helpful as he should make us smile all the time with jokes and has a great humour.

Great service guys and hats off to your warmth and caring relation with us. Thanks

To start with,I must thank Shaan and other Agonda White Sand team members(Raj & Raju especially) for making our trip a memorable one.It is not a hotel or an usual resort-this place is more informal and meant to be for travellers who just wants to relax and laze around.Initially we thought spending 6-7 days here may turn out to be boring(especially for our two kids),but frankly time flew at such a pace that after our six nights,we thought that we should have stayed here for a few more days. For the kids,it was their longest period of non-contact with TV,and yet they had never complained about it.
While we were travelling back to the airport after our stay,we had already started planning for our next trip to Agonda White Sand.Thanks to all Agonda White Sand team members(including those young women who diligently cleaned the cottages each morning).-Pinaki Mitra

Stayed at Agonda White Sand only for one night but enjoyed it so much we have booked again for March 2013. The rooms were spotless and the wet room fab. The breakfast, lunch & evening meals were all 10/10 served with a smile & a bit of friendly banter with the staff which the 4 of us enjoyed. Agonda White Sand has taken beach hut standards way above the norm for Goa

Not sure what else I can add to what's already being said here: White Sand is an incredible destination.

My wife and I have stayed here twice, then for our wedding we sent 14 of our friends and family to stay too. The team that run the place are lovely (especially Raj) and look after you well. The food is great, the menu is small but if you're not into eating Indian food 3 times a day then they have the best selection of non Indian and lighter/non-spicy foods.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not the type of holidaymaker who travels with my own cornflakes and ketchup and craves home cooking from the time I hit the airport. I'm not even the type of traveler who eats sausages. I'm vegetarian, a British ex-pat in Mumbai and happily eat Indian food for weeks on end without giving a thought to a plate of macaroni cheese or a dash of HP sauce. However, Agonda White Sands serves sausages and two of my carnivorous travel buddies went into food induced euphoria over them. These are British or Aussie styled sausages served with mash, broccoli and a jug of onion gravy or on buns in the classic sausage sandwich. I believe they also make an appearance in the breakfast menu. OK you might not travel all the way to Agonda to snag a sausage but if it's only a short hop from Mumbai you might find yourself planning a trip around them.

The burgers were also given the thumbs up. Veg food was lovely, the paneer dishes in particular were delicious and wonderfully balanced in terms of texture and spices and the felafel was a great mix of crispy nuggets and gorgeous oozy accompaniments. The menu, new from last season, is shorter than before, the pasta dishes which I liked have gone but there are still lots of delicious options and of course - sausages.

White sands is a lovely resort by the look of things, I've never stayed but the huts are a cut above the rest. Staff are friendly and helpful and service is smart and professional. The huts are a little close to the restaurant areas with most of the balconies looking directly on to it so there might be some privacy issues. I have a totally rational fear of sitting under coconut palms having had two close encounters with very hard and large coconuts plummeting down inches away from me in the past and would welcome netting on the trees to protect those below but I've never seen that in India and I expect the good people at White Sands know what they're doing

Everyone I have recommended White Sands too, and there have been a lot, have thoroughly enjoyed their meals and it's good to see that standards have not just been maintained from previous seasons, they have been improved upon.

And they have sausages.

Sausages indeed. I am so please you loved the food. Our chef has worked hard to retrain staff to our new menu and we are receiving such good feed back. We decided to offer a high quality but smaller menu and with the assistance of an English chef we have introduced ingredients such as salmon, olive oil, wasabi and steak. We have traveled all over Goa to get ingredients rarely seen in south Goa and we are so happy that you and others appreciate the effort. Come again soon.
