    Me and my wife were there in the first week of December, and it was sheer pleasure! This resort/hotel is an unknown treasure. It's not widely publicised locally, as it mostly caters to Westerners. It's run by a Goan and his Scottish wife, and is quite popular with people from the UK.

    It's located at Bogmallo beach (South Goa), within 5 minutes walk from the ocean! It has only about 20 rooms (half with a/c), swimming pool, pool table, and a nice restaurant/bar. The family also owns Joets, a restaurant right at the beach, again within a stone's throw from the hotel.

    If you want a nice, relaxing stay, without any noise, this is definitely the place for you. If however, you like people around you, with a bit of party atmosphere, and activities to do; this probably isn't your cup of tea. There were mostly English couples in their 60's relaxing on the pool's edge, or sunbaking at the beach. We only saw one other young couple (prob in their early 30's), and only one other (in their mid 40's) who had kids there.

    Unique Quality: The rooms are quite spacious, with very comfortable beds, nice bathroom (with a tub), and is very "western"; as far as it's amenities are concerned. The reason I say this is because I am Indian, but have been living in Australia for the past 15 years. So I am trying to distinguish this hotel from others which may not necessarily be up to the standards of people from Western countries, who are looking for similar level of hotels as found in their countries. For example, my Australian wife was extremely happy when she discovered that this hotel in fact had spring beds (as compared to other Indian hotels)!

    The swimming pool is a good size, and is very clean. There are however, no beach views or water views from any of the rooms in this resort; yet is only about 5 minutes walk from the beach.

    It's a pity they don't have more activities for people to do at this hotel. They could've even organised bus tours to Anjuna markets on Wednesday nights, or similar trips.

    Directions: They don't have a website, and so are quite hard to find virtually.

Taking money into Goa

by taurean_traveller

My holiday is very soon and I have just read on a couple of very small travel forums that it is illegal to take Rupees into Goa.
Also according to the Indian Embassy web site it is prohibited to import/export Rupees

Yet my local Bureau were willing to sell me Rupees to tide me over for my first day or so for any immediate costs like tipping etc.

How have other travellers fared please

The rupee is a closed currency and (with few exceptions) is not supposed to be available outside of India. Unless you are bringing in a very large amount, I would not worry about it. You can bring in enough for the first day or two but it is not necessary as there is an ATM in the airport.

Exceptions prove the rule. I went to Stamford and to London with quite a few Indian currency in my wallet, just to look at in case I got homesick ;-) Nobody asked me to open my wallet to check. Some amount, say Rs. 1,000/- in small currency of Rs. 50/- and Rs. 10/- won't attract any attention, esp. if you tell the authorities that you need to take a taxi to your hotel. Any yes, there are ATMs available.

im going there in the early spring on a cruise ship i wonder what i should do for money there? that is the first time i have herd about rupees not permitted ithought it was in india;

Re: Taking money into Goa

by anilpradhanshillong

Could you be a little more specific please? Taking a cruise ship from where to where? Is it from a different country into Goa (India) or from some other part of India into Goa (India)?

Re: Taking money into Goa

by Donna_in_India

Cory - I think maybe you have misunderstood? Rupees are the currency for India but you cannot (or should not be able to) exchange other currency for rupees OUTSIDE of India. Once in India you can obtain rupees.

This is really not something to worry about. If you are able to get some rupees before arriving in India, it's fine to do that. As Anil has mentioned, no one ever asks to see what's in your wallet. If you cannot, you will find plenty of ATMS or you can exchange your local currency at an exchange or bank. Possibly you would even be able to do that on the ship?

Have a great cruise!

Re: Taking money into Goa

by corysharon

the first comment scared me. I never herd that rupees where difficult to optain outside india. I always like to have some local currency when I arrive.I don't like getting bad exchanges or long bank lineups. the ship might have some rupees.

Re: Taking money into Goa

by Donna_in_India

So sorry - I didn't mean to scare you. :-)) It just means that banks are not allowed to buy or sell rupees anywhere outside of India. If you do find somewhere to obtain rupees outside of India the exchange rate may be very poor. It is possible that you can get some on the ship but you should not worry - really. You can check this site for exchange rates: http://www.oanda.com/currency/converter/.

Travel Tips for Goa

Culture

by sharatkum

Its people who are fun loving and easy going. There are many places for tourists to visit apart from the beaches in Goa. Temples, local market in Mapusa, the streets and and theater in Panjim. Most of the places can be visited by private taxis which are priced very reasonable unless you are there in December which is the peak season.

If you are a single traveler than try the two wheeler taxis which is even more reasonable. The other option is to hire a two wheeler and explore the inner roads.

Goa is absolutely safe to drive and explore all the time. The long stretch of beaches from Fort Aguada till Baga and the little shacks. Dont miss "goan fish curry and rice" in Suza Lobo's restaurant in Callangute - there is no substitute.

North Goa

by julia687

i was lead to believe that the north of Goa is very commercialised, however it was totally different to how I imagained, I thought there would be mc donalds & that usual thing.
In reality it is still rather Indian as there is quite a lot not touched by tourism - there is no mc donalds! it has beautiful clean beaches, there is not endless english bars, not that we saw anyway! And lovely green scenery. There really is something for everyone here.
Calangue is rather dusty and large but nothing like the Benidorm I was expecting!

My biggest thing was that I don't really eat spicy food however that is not a problem as there is always something for everyone, not meaning burger & fries but lots of fresh seafood, chicken etc.

Give it a try - you will love it!

If you are a smoker...

by tashka

... please remember that in Goa gas lighters are not allowed in your hand baggage and will be taken away from you at the security check when you are leaving Goa.
After you pass the control, in the duty free area there is a smoking room, but no one has a lighter and the electrical lighters in the smoking room are out of order!
So just put your precious gas lighter in the luggage that you check in, and have a box of matches with you.

Fishing

by MicB

Fascinating watching the local fishermen at Coco Beach. The effort that is put into fishing appears tremendous.

Starting with wading out with the long fishing net to create a loop, then with as many hands as possible dragging it back ashore.
