“I love Shanti!”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

Amazing food, great huts and run by the most lovely people.
Agonda is a very chilled place and Shanti is the perfect place to relax and enjoy sunsets with a cold Kingfisher!
I have been every year for the last four years and will be definitely back.

nice huts, clean, some of them have an open bathroom which is very nice,

the kitchen is outstanding, they don't hesitate also to prepare fresh caught fish or fullfill other wishes from the guests.

The owners do everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible, they help you in any way possible.

nice restaurant with a beautiful lounge area

free - wifi in the huts and in the restaurant.

End of season in Agonda and we really enjoy staying in our hut with perfect view to the ocean.
Our hut has a big open air bathroom and a bedroom with a big comfortable bed, clean pillow and a moscito net (without hole). Additional we have a terrace with two comfortable chairs, a table and a lounger (all with cushions). You can change the lock with your own padlock if you want. The wifi is working ( you can use Skype with video)
The Beach is clean and you can use the lounger from Shanti. During our time only one man tried to sell drums what means that you can sleep, read, ... without interruption.
The restaurant is good as well. You can ask for fresh fish next day and the Bobbys Team will organize it in the morning from the fisherman. The food is always fresh prepared and we enjoyed it. If you want it spicy - only ask.

I had a special wish, I asked for plants ( Mango, pepper,...) Bobby will help you.

We travelled one month In India and this place was one of the best.

This place is everything you want from a beach accomodation. The staff is incredibly friendly and will always put a smile on your face. Service is excellent and the food is fresh and tasty. Try the cocktails made by the boss himself! They are among the best I have ever had and you can enjoy them lounging in the comfy corners right by the beach.
The huts are basic, but very clean and the view when you wake up in the morning is stunning from pretty much every hut, which is not the case with every accomodation. Among the best things is that every hut has a little front porch with a little table, chairs and a beach bed.
If you are looking for a relaxed time in an incredibly soothing atmosphere this is the place to go. It won't test you budget and gives you every pennies worth. Top Spot!!

Room Tip: The one hut right at the front is pretty much always booked, so call ahead.

After Palolem, we spent 4 very happy days here. The food was excellent, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful; just a really nice place to be. Overlooking the beach, you couldn't ask for a better place to spend a couple of days.

My wife and our 3 kids stayed here for 3 nights in march. The location is fantastic, with the best beach in Goa right on your doorstep. The food was really good, the red snapper was amazing, as was everything else. The staff are really friendly and were great with the kids, i wish we could have stayed longer. Hopefully get back there next year.

After the tour of coastal Maharastra, Goa & Kerela. We had decided to
spend our 6 nights in Agonda again.

As we spend lot of money so finally decided to stay in budget huts. After going to some huts, we finally decided to stay in Shanti huts. The owner Bobby promise accomodation with breakfast. But the breakfast with Aloo pratha is like ordinary Indian rooti, when I ask about the aloo pratha to Bobby he in return answer me it is like this only. Then the lady Bobby's wife came and told us "what you get 500 rupees huts or breakfast". As we paid the full room rent we had no other option.
There were too many mosquitos in huts, we had sleepless night. There
was water leakage in toilet when you flash the water from comod come up.

Next day when we complain about these to staff. The guy who named
Govid told me madam is still sleeping. After around 40 minutes, Booby wife came started shouting on us why you only have complain, but when I showed the water leakage problem she told me, I will change the huts. We moved to next huts almost the same but little less leakage but mosquitos.

We paid for 6 nights but stayed on only 3 nights. When we told to
refund the money of 3 nights, Bobby answer us we have no refund policy.

The owner Bobby and his wife fool the guest by giving complimentary
and in return they ask the guest to write a good reviews.

The huts look from outside like villas but when you enter in its like a shed.

Don't get fooled with reviews.
