5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

We came for a week and booked three more! It’s such a special place❤️ The staff treats you so well and looks after all your needs. It’s far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the cliffs but yet a short walk if you want to venture out for a meal. The beach is fabulous and the Arabian Sea water is so warm and therapeutic. Afternoons are often spent around the pool with a book. They’ve just built a fabulous Ayurveda clinic a stones throw away and the massage was excellent. I can’t say enough about how much my husband and I are enjoying our stay and even though the flight is a long one from Canada we will certainly return!

most comfortable bed in 6 weeks of touring india

The reception greeting was very warm, we also met the owner who very kindly arranged a birthday cake for me and introduced us to the other guests. This exceeded our expectations. The room was very comfortable and clean, nice shower and the pool and facilities were excellent. I would recommend this place.
