In Feb 2020 I attended an amazing destination wedding #DivMIt!! It was truly the most beautiful wedding I attended. The staff were extremely helpful and always willing to help! They always had a smile on their face. The rooms were great (clean, comfy) and the food/catering was unbelievable. The grounds were vast with a private beach, a large pool and plenty of areas to walk around. It was a very tranquil and surreal - pictures online do not do any just as you have to witness the place for yourself :). The food we chose was predominately indian food but there were other varieties of food and options available - plenty of choice for vegetarians :). Highly recommended Read less

I had been to this property for a company event. We had booked almost 120 Rooms of the property. I reached Hotel on day before our conference and it took 35-40 Minutes for me to check in. My superior got wrong room keys and was romaing in propery clueless. Lets talk about the Only Problem areast:- The Attitude problem of Staff as they are "The Zuri" staff. This include a lot of small and big support which we seek while managing big groups. In most of the cases I heard NO. Though they provided a very early check in to few of our rooms for our guests. Food taste was OK and was very English, no extra effort being taken as we were a group belong to Central India. We did conferences in GOA before as well, but in terms of Hotel this was one of the lowest appreciated experience. Read less

Stayed here for 2 weeks from 2nd March and from the day we checked in to the departure day we could not fault the hotel at all. Beautiful hotel with extensive beautifully manicured gardens leading down to the private beach. The beach was kept very clean and there are a few independent shacks serving delicious food as well as the hotel's own beach restaurant. we only ate in the hotel restaurant one night as there were so many good quality local restaurants so it was good to have some variety. However the breakfast in the hotel was amazing, plenty of choice whether you prefer continental, English or Asian cuisine. All the staff were extermely friendly, polite and always willing to help. The room was beautifully decorated and had everything you could need, including a decent sized mini bar, plenty of wardrobe space and a safe. There was a huge shower in the bathroom and toiletries etc if you needed them. The room was cleaned every day by a lovely young man, Rohit who couldn't do enough for us. The pool and surrounding area was always kept immaculately clean and the Pool bar served excellent lunch time snacks. sadly due to the coronavirus, the pool was shut down 2 days before we left and also lots of people had cancelled so it was very quiet. I can't describe how much we loved our stay, it was everything we'd hoped and more and I sincerely hope that before long the Hotel and indeed the local people will recover from this awful episode, such lovely friendly people who made us feel so welcome. Thank you all for a lovely holiday we will always remember. Read less

We had our coursemates get together here in March 2020. The resort was amazing. Very comfortable rooms, clean well manicured gardens and lawns, huge grounds and lovely swimming pools. The resort has its own shack and private beach just 3 minutes walk away. Lovely clean gradual beach. The food was excellent. Tangerine bar was really good.

Had a small issue on check in but both the duty manager Ms. Ananya and the receptionist Ms. Vasundara were up and about to resolve the issue very quickly. Was impressed at their quick response. Good customer support.
