“Chilled out vibe, great price, amazing beach - what more could you want?”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

I can't recommend this place enough. We were a 'walk in', looking for a place to stay after a particularly bad rat experience in another resort. Bobby and his team greeted us with a warm smile and a cold beer, and assurances that there were definitely no rats at Shanti (which turned out to be 100% true). We stayed for 6 nights, eating and drinking in the Shanti restaurant. The food was amazing, eating fresh fish straight from the Tandoori oven with the sand between your toes while listening to the waves - total bliss. Bobby organised a scooter for us one day, took care of ordering cabs to wherever we wanted, all in all an excellent and accommodating host. Thanks so much to Bobby and his wife Shalu for an amazing time - we will certainly be back soon.

Nothing describes our experience at "Shanti Agonda" more than this...."Awesome". We were 6 of us, stayed for 3 nights during Christmas of 2012. A perfect place to relax and recharge oneself..

We had 2 large huts and a small one. Huts were very neat and clean; with open air washrooms - which i think is a very good idea. Every hut comes with a balcony (with sitouts and a sunbed) which again is a very good idea.. All the huts have beach view but the smaller ones are behind the restaurant so it is a bit restricted. Large huts have very clear beach view...

Food is brilliant again. Being vegetarians we have struggled for good vegetarian food in Goa on our previous visits but food at Shanti was superb. They have limited stuff on menu - it saves one time and helps you make quick decisions but everything on Menu tastes just perfect. only thing is one needs to wait for minimum of 30 mins before the food arrives post giving the order..but it is definitely worth the wait...On request they also make stuff outside the menu as well..

three cheers for the Staff too...warm and friendly, always with a smile..Tenzin, Deepu and Pramod 3 of them. Bobby and Shalu are the owners running this place and ensure all the guests are well taken care of..

I will surely visit Shanti Agonda again when in goa...

Room Tip: the one big hut right at the beach has the best views... but if you want a mix of beach view and sha...

Bobby and Shalu Chow have built up a thriving business on the beach at Agonda.
The huts are spacious and comfortable with mosquito nets and the attached outdoor bathroom comes with a hot shower.
The restaurant is very popular and not just with the resident guests and the menu is limited but good. Better to have a small menu where everything is cooked perfectly than a large menu of unknown quality.
The hosts Bobby and Shalu are lovely people and do everything they can to make your stay comfortable.
It's a perfect place for couples seeking a romantic getaway.

I went here to visit a couple of friends who had been staying at shanti for two weeks. Although I was here only for three days, the experience was fantastic. Bobby was very friendly and his whole family too! It was nice.. the food was awesome, and the view was just simply amazing.. Angonda is a nice beach in Goa, and this place made the whole experience just a lot more sweeter.

The food was nice, and it was nice to have chats with Bobby and his family in the evenings.. he makes sure to meet the guests and speak with them and make them feel comfortable. The staff was very friendly as well!

All in all, I would highly reccommend this place to anyone thinking of travelling to Goa. Forget all the big things and ads and everything, this is the only place to visit for a great and relaxing time! :)

Room Tip: Book early for the best rooms with a view to the beach! :)

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.
