Private Secret Beach Resort in Goa

We found a secret spot in Goa. India’s pretty darn populated, so that’s saying something. Described online as a freshwater lagoon sitting just meters from the ocean, scattered with palm trees, and small tents to sleep in, your very own private secret beach resort in Goa.

I guess it isn’t that secret since I found it on Google… but most Indians I talk with haven’t heard of it- even Goans. I’m caught in my first ethical blogging dilemma (is that even a thing?) Do I tell my readers of this amazing place, so that they too can enjoy it’s peaceful solitude, OR do I keep it to myself so I can selfishly relish in its beauty alone.

The owner wants it kept on the quiet and does minimum publicity. His marketing mantra is less is more, private, and a little VIP, which in turn keeps the tariff good for everyone.

Update May 2015: This post is over two years old now. Because of that and that many emails I get per week, I am going to list the information on here. which you can google: Dwarka Resort at Cola Beach, Goa. Please use this link to book. I have been back since writing this and it’s still a peaceful quiet place.

Secret Beach Resort in Goa

Sometimes north Goa gets a little too crowded.

Great for business, bad for peace of mind. Ben and I decided we should get away for a little bit and after learning of “the place” we packed up and headed south. The guesthouse manager told us we couldn’t navigate the place on our own, so they sent a boy to meet us. Just to brag, I drove all the way there. Over two hours, through major towns, and only stalled twice. Check my Driving in India post for more tips on that.

The scenery on the way was nothing like we were used to in India. It reminded me of Uganda. I half-expected to see a lion chilling under one of the trees. The dirt/rock road to the guesthouse was pretty treacherous (we’d find out just how much so on the way out, when we get a flat tire).  The initial views of the place were jaw dropping.

The website wasn’t lying. The lagoon was gorgeous (no crocodiles!) but many reports of snakes. Our resort was exclusive, I think only one other tent had a couple staying there. On the other side of the lagoon, for half the price were other tents and cabins with mostly Russian guests. Even so, I’ve never seen a beach more deserted in Goa, other than during monsoon. It was like we’d found a new world.

The resort can be all-inclusive if you want, except beverages. The food is basic Indian, and the booze is overpriced. The room was initially offered at 6,500 rs including food. I offered 3,000 rs but we get our own food. They happily agreed. Later, they assured me the nigh time BBQ on the beach would leave me happily ever after, so we settled at 5,500 rs with food included. In hindsight, it would have been cheaper to get food at the restaurant next door. So when you book online, choose the option for cottage (not the one that says cottage with food).

Update: keep in mind this article is two years old and prices most certainly have increased.

Amenities:

The beach itself is very small. There are three resorts in total. One of which has a restaurant with Wi-Fi. Our place did not have Wi-Fi, and since Ben and I both work online, after one day we sadly had to check out. There was no A/C or hot water, so make sure to shower early in the day when the well is still hot! The basic amenities are typical for beach huts in India; it’s actually the norm. It cools down at night so A/C isn’t necessary at all.

Our hut was quite nice, with direct window views to the ocean, and the front door opens up to the lagoon. The staff were very on top of things, as they hardly had any guests. We felt very well taken care off. But don’t hold out for room service, it isn’t allowed because the crumbs draw in too many bugs; it’s the same at most eco-resorts. Considering the closeness of freshwater, surprisingly we didn’t have mosquito problems. Thank god, because there was no net above the bed.

Dinner was set up with individual tables on the beach; I suppose it was meant to be romantic. We were too cold to think about that.  The food was mediocre. Tandoori chicken, cold veg/pasta salad, potatoes, and egg fried rice. They gave very generous portions and came around constantly trying to give us more. No desert was offered. Good thing I don’t go on road trips without snacks.

Things to do: Almost nothing. But that’s the point.

It’s an escape. We both read (I am reading Tina Fey’s “Bossypants”) and I worked on editing photos. A known area for dolphins, they do offer dolphin boat tours at 8:30 in the morning for 450 rs. Do people actually get up that early on vacation, or ever!? They informed us of the tour option once and didn’t pester us again about it, an unusual happening in Goa. The beach has private lifeguards and kayaks you can take into the lagoon or sea at 300 rs per kayak per hour.

Falling asleep to the sound of the beach and waking up to the sights of the lagoon alone were worth the visit. The landscape was killer and the waves were huge! Plenty of time was spent body surfing before sunset.

Worst of the resort:

The road was quite bad. We got a flat tire leaving. The food combo we negotiated over the phone wasn’t the best deal. There was no WiFi or cell phone reception.

Best of the resort:

seclusion, quiet, and; a soft wonderful mattress like-a-cloud

    Judging by your beautiful pictures seems you guys had fun. This is a place they don’t get enough guests so they will try to rip you off if they get that opportunity.

      definitely! we agreed to the food because it was described as this awesome BBQ, which it wasn’t. I would still go back, but I’ll just keep in mind they agreed to over 50% lower of a rate than initially offered, and not get the food!

        Hi Rachel,

        The above place is awesome. Since we are an Travel Agent in Mumbai we don’t know about this secret place. Will you please share the name of property in Goa and further where it is exactly located. Because we our self got fed up of selling same place and visiting those. we need a change at least for our self.

        Thanks

    Dear Rachel

    A bit about me first.We are a couple working in Bangalore , very tired of our mundane IT jobs .We seek out every opportunity we get to spend some time in goa.since last one year we have been reputedly visiting Agonda and have fallen completely in love with the beach there .We basically do nothing and just lounge around , sitting by the sea.

    Seeing you pictures ,one place come right to my mind ,which is actually near to the beach where we have spend many weekends this season.Not naming the place as it would make it pretty obvious then. In another month we would be again ready to take a shot vacation of 3-4 days and our agenda is pretty much the same.A place which isnt crowded , where people mind their own business and where we get to just unwind and relax.I would request you to share the location of this place through email and I can assure you that it would stay and unspoilt paradise as u expect it to be .
    thanks

    Help please i’m so in love with ur post, currently in goa with my mum staying in a hideaway hotel in betul,South south goa, however having spent two days here i’m disappointed by the British and Russian influences, i am not to fond of cornetto icecreams and angry Russians smacking the stray dogs on over crowded cavolusium beach!! Please recommend a more spiritual goa, a bit more island life -here for another five days any help would be massively appreciated!!

    • Rachel Jones March 28, 2014 at 4:39 am - Reply

      Hi Emma! Hate to hear that about the dogs; I get so emotional when I see people hurting them. If I were you I would head up to North Goa and stay in Anjuna. It’s touristy of course, but it’s a “hippie” area- not like baga, calangute, or candolim which you should stay away from. Think Anjuna or Vagator. That’s where I live and I love it here!

    Hi Rachel,

    Could you send me an email with the name of the resort/beach? I’ve been to Goa on New Yrs once and the beach we stayed at, well, it was like a mini private beach, with no one in sight and surprisingly clean. And we stayed at this bungalow (homestay) which literally opened up to the beach. Although, to be honest, it was a little eery at night, I wouldn’t mind spending my day just being a beach bum there.

    Cheers!

    Hi Rachel! I love your blog & you have great karma too. Your comment about the stray dogs really resonates with me – I am an animal lover too and I too, like you get so emotional when I see people being mean to the stray dogs. All they want is a little love and a little food to survive. I wish there were more good hearted people in this world that would help them. I hope the expats in Goa (and visitors) will do more to help the strays.

    PS> Thanks again for your awesome blog and great info! :)

      Thank you Des, you are so sweet. There is a great place called International Animal Rescue in Goa who do so much for the animals- but you just can’t save them all. It’s heartbreaking. I’ve adopted 2, but only one survived as they were sick when we got them.

    Hi Rachael, thanks so much for letting me know. I’m really happy to hear that at least there is an Animal Rescue in Goa. I’ll definitely go there to make a donation when I visit Goa again. It’s great that you adopted ~ I’m so sorry to hear that the other 1 did not make it. You’re a good person & I hope to meet you when I visit Goa in November! Take Care :)

    I really liked your blog and i can assure you that u r ethically correct to not reveal the name of the place. Goa is such a beautiful place that one wants to visit it again and again, for right reasons or wrong reasons or whatever it may be. Fueling this is of course the connectivity of this place and majorly the cost factor. I can definitely go overboard and say that Goa has best and cheapest beaches in this world to offer.
    Sadly many Indians dont appreciate this and treat this as just another picnic spot. So I also dont reveal the name of the secret places in Goa. I want such places to be pristine and be visited by like minded people.
    Coming to the point, I would love to visit / know abt this place. Hope you don’t mind sharing the same. Take care !

    Would you please share the name/contact so that I can just perfect my trip to Goa with my wonderful companion.
    I think I know which place this is because I was looking to stay in this or possibly a similar property since long but the one I know is unfortunately not available at the moment. even then, to add to my anxiety and desperation to stay on a beach property, I am going to hope that the place you are talking about is not the same that I know.

    And oh yes, thank you for website. How generous to share ones explores with the world.

    Try Bagibaga Beach AKA Turtle Island. It has one of the best sea food shacks you’ll ever wish to stumble across… and it’s cheap, cheap, cheap! Not over keen on Oysters (which they catch themselves) But the crab is to die for :) .. It may not be a secret anymore, but it is still relatively quiet and astoundingly beautiful! Honestly, go and spend the day there chilling.. you’ll love it!

    And don’t forget your sun-screen & water, as there are no shops here adventurers!

It’s a place that has gorgeous Rahjastan tents (no wifi but they did have hot water), although unfortunately, they also have “entertainment” at night so try to get a tent furthest away from the bar/food tent. It’s just a short walk to the Emerald lagoon. But for now, I’m all about the YabYum Resort at Ashwen Beach! Oh yeah baby. Leaving Friday for my annual Goa Chill Out. I’m a “Yank” too living now in rainy Britian…I need sun!!! Thanks for the great pics and blog.

    Hi Hippie-inheels,

    Have gone thorugh every single post about Goa – loved it! Love Goa. Hoping Goa to remain prestine forever (not very sure about that). Actually, me and my wife have plans to leave our corporate job and settle in Goa somewhere, setting-up a small business or something, in future. Visited Goa 4-5 times in last 2 years staying for about a week during off-season. Have plans to visit this moonsoon and to stay 1-2 days at this hideout (if they nogotiate on prices). Would love to hear from you and the coordinates of the place if possible.
    Who knows we might bump into you (omni) riding along the lush green fields of Goa :)
    Love reading your blog!

    I found your blog only a week ago and I’ve been loving your fresh, happy posts on seaside India. I’ve been to South Goa several times and I totally agree about how untouched and beautiful it is, as compared to commercialised North Goa. I’m not going to ask you for the name of the resort though..maybe I’ll discover it by chance some day. :) Also, the rate sounds terribly expensive. I guess this is why I’ve always had reservations about all-inclusive hotel rooms.

      I’m glad you found it :D It was so over-priced. There is another resort near to it that was much cheaper.

    Hey Rachel,
    I really loved your blog. I am planning to visit Goa for the third time but this time it will be with my significant other. I have stayed in the north in past which is always crowded. I would like a difference experience now. So can you please email me the place and name of resort ? And also what else I should do in Goa apart from partying all the time? Any unique hidden places?

    Absolutely love oyur blog. Reading your posts makes me feel so nostalgic about my time in India!

    I am really keen to visit this place but wondered if you are able to simply visit the beach on a day trip from Agonda? Or is it strictly private for the resort as I don’t think I can afford to stay there?

    many thanks :)

    Hi Rachel, thanks so much for your blog, it has been really helpful for the trip I’m planning later in the year. Unfortunately Dwarka Resort is booked up when we were looking to visit. Is it possible for you to email me the names of the other 2 resorts you mentioned? Or any other gems in South Goa?
