Set in the cooling shades of lush green jungle and connected with a small bamboo bridge to one of Goa's most beautiful beaches you will find our village to be extremely peaceful and the ideal place to relax. It is conveniently located in South Goa on the paradise beach of Palolem which is known for its blissful vibes, laid back people and beautiful nature.

And with the gentle ocean breeze to refresh you, you will never want to leave.
We are strongly engaged in making the Village more eco-friendly. The village runs partly on solar power and we work hard on adding further eco-friendly measures. Our connection with nature is vital and we strive towards that connection in our every day life and with every action. We welcome you to join the movement by bringing your own refillable bottle, keeping plastic to a necessary minimum and being mindful of the resources we use from Mother Nature. Electricity provided by the sun is available from dawn for you to have the lights on, use the fan and charge your gadgets. Please bear in mind that we live in close proximity to the surrounding nature which means you might come across the odd visitor like a frog, insects and monkeys :) - they are all very friendly!

Palolem Beach is largely unspoiled and is inhabited by both local fishermen and by foreign tourists who live in shacks along the shore or in the main village itself. The white sandy beach gently curves round to form a crescent shape and is about one mile (approximately 1.61 km) long; one can view the entire beach from either end. Both ends of the beach consist of rocks jutting out into the sea.
The depth of the sea increases gradually, being shallowest at the northern end of the beach, making it safe for average swimmers, and the currents are not fast.
The village which despite the large influx of tourists every year has managed to remain a local and traditional village just with a few added souvenir stalls. Palolem is also ideal for young families as the atmosphere is relaxed, friendly and safe.
