Everything about this place is fabulous, great location that provides the luxury of staying in a private island, good staff right from the pick-up from the jetty point to cleaner to cook to manager to driver they are all friendly well-behaved and best of all dint take tips when I offered them. The food is mouth-watering and had items like crab on the menu to me that was like wow. No cigarettes available, make sure you carry enough of them, the place serves beer and other liquor but expensive, suggest you carry your own booze. The care taker had my car washed neatly by the time I returned back to the jetty point after my stay and wasn't accepting any money when I offered him some.

Devbagh is an island off the Karwar cost ( Though it is connected to the main land through a very small stretch of land, access to the island is not possible through this stretch because it is completely occupied by the fishermen village). It lies at the confluence of River Kali and the Arabian Sea where the river forms shallow lagoons. The best part of this resort is its location and the lagoons.

Reaching there:
- Devbagh Resort can be reached only by boat. Visitors should reach the jungle resorts office which is located in Karwar. The resort staff will take us by their own vehicle to the jetty from where they will ferry us to the Devbagh Island by boat. It is a short ride for about 15-20 mins to reach the island.

Karwar has good connectivity to the rest of the cities by road and train.

Stay:
The rooms are basic and very clean. You cannot expect any TV, telephone or free WiFi. However, each cottage has a spacious sit-out, bedroom, clean bathroom and a changing room. The bed was nice and neat. An extra bed is also available for a single kid.

Staff:
The staff was very friendly and responsive. They attend to each of our queries and requests courteously.

Food:
Food is served at the common dining hall which is located close to the beach. Though they don't have a very expansive spread of buffet, the food is quite tasty. Milk powder, sugar and water along with a kettle is always available at the rooms/cottages. Snacks and beverages are served in the evening along with the bonfire on the beach. The bonfire is arranged at around 7. 30 to 8. 00 pm once it gets dark.

Location:
This is the best thing about this resort. The beach is very clean and accessible for only for those staying at the resort. During low tide, the water level reduces creating beautiful shallow lagoons and sand dunes. The water level in the lagoons will be only till the waist making it an awesome spot for water play even for those who do not know swimming. The low and high tide bring a lot of seashell which are scattered across the entire shore forming various pattern.

The entire island is covered with Casuarina Trees whose swaying leaves make the hushing sounds complementing the sound of the waves. The trees provide excellent shade to the entire resort location even during the middle of the day. Many hammocks are tied around the resort for the visitors to relax.

The best time to spend on the beach is during the evenings from 4 pm to 7 pm when the tide is low and the lagoons are shallow. The almost white sand on the beach looks almost golden at the twilight. The setting sun with the orange light, the golden beach and the shallow lagoons with the sand dunes in between- all these make Devbagh a photographers paradise.

The water level remains low till evening and it starts raising gradually towards the night as the sea level raises. By the time the camp-fire is set-up, the sea level has risen covering all the lagoons. The sea plays the music as the visitors sit and enjoy the snacks and beverages. Loud music is not allowed on this island.

Activities:
- The resort offers water activities such as banana ride, speed boat, jet skii etc at additional cost.

Below activities are part of the package:
- beach volleyball
- some rope activities ( like Burma bridge, net walk etc)
- early morning nature walk through the forest present on the island along with bird watch.
- bonfire in the evening on the beach.
- boat ride into the sea for dolphin watch. ( we can see dolphins when the sea is calm but is is not possible when it is windy)

Cost:
If there is any one setback for this resort, it is the cost. The resort charges around Rs. 5000 + taxes per head. This is way too costlier than some of the 4 and 5 star hotels. Even the water activities are a bit over priced compared to all other locations.

Music is not played during the bonfire. So, it gets a bit boring if you do not have a group to enjoy with.

Tips:
- do not expect super luxury accommodation based on the amount you pay for the stay.
- plan to reach the island before noon so that you can enjoy all activities as per the resort's schedule.
- choose rooms far away from the kitchen and the dining area. These rooms are close to the forest and if you are lucky, you can see a few foxes and peacocks around your cottage early in the mornings.
- Don't spend much time on water sports. Instead, spend more time on the island and in the beach.
- have your entire evening dedicated for playing in the beach and lagoons.

I visited Karwar and stayed in Devbagh Beach Resort was good in the month of February and it was a romantic trip. It is easy to locate the resort and conveniently located. There was no problem in check in check out process. Staff service was friendly and helpful but room service was delay. Room allotted to me was like cottage room and beach view was there. I ate food in the resort sea food was good but veg food was not good. Activities were conducted in the resort. Overall, stay was comfortable.

Went out with my wife for our first anniversary. This is the best place to get out with amazing view. The place is completely isolated (at least seem to be). Beautiful beach and well-mannered staff. Food is amazing. I would suggest visiting during November. It is the best time to be there.

Visited Jungle Lodges Devbagh property in February. Overall it was very good and peaceful stay. Did online booking for 2 nights. It was easy and access to resort is through 10 min boating from pick up point in Karwar Jetty. Entry was through small pathway in devbagh island. Rooms were basic but clean. Check-in was smooth and they have ghol ghar type restaurant which is again an experience. Main attraction is secluded, clean, pristine, peaceful, unspoilt clean beach. you can walk long on beach and can reach up to fisherman village. Sunset watching with 3 island in background(including kurumgad) was a lifetime experience. Resort had organized morning nature walk which really was informative and good. Had really enchanting holidays at Devbagh.

The arrival is surprising but familiar. The bungalow is rustic but overall nice and comfy. The beach is wonderful and fabulous sunset. The meal is nice although a little small but the atmosphere compensates. Attentive and helpful staff made a good stay.

It was a relaxation trip with relatives. The hotel was conveniently located. The hotel did provide the pick-up and drop facility from the bus stand. The hotel was surrounded by beautiful greenery. The interior and exterior of the hotel was well-furnished. The service people were friendly, helpful and hygienic. The room which was given to me was comfortable for our family. The bed sheets, curtains and pillows were maintained neat and tidy. The room had beautiful beach view out of it. The food was reasonable and it was tasty too. There were many varieties of food available. We did not try any activity in the hotel. The destination was value for money.

The overall experience of the resort was fine. I was very happy with management. The resort was conveniently located. There was no difficulty in finding the resort. I had been there with family. The resort staff were very helpful. I didn't face any delay in check-in and check-out procedure. The appearance of the resort was good. The room was spacious, neat, clean and well-maintained. All the basic amenities provided in the room were working fine. Happy with the stay in the hotel. All cottages were sea facing. There was a hill view from the room. The resort was a bit costly. There were activities like trekking was arranged. There was no sightseeing was arranged as it was a very small island. The quality of the food was good. I will recommend the resort to other. Food was excellent and reasonable charged, had good varieties in veg and non-veg. There were water sport activities, but were very costly apart cost from that everything was very good.

The hotel was conveniently located. I had no difficulty to reach the hotel. The hotel was far from railway station and bus stand. The hotel staff behaviour was good. The hotel had no problem to check-in and check-out. I stayed for seven days. The room was neat, clean and spacious. There was no such view from my room. The room amenities like TV, AC and geyser were in working condition. The hotel food was good. They provide both veg and non-veg. The hotel look was old. The hotel had such done activities with well-maintained. The hotel had parking area. I suggest them just to improve cleanliness. I will recommend this hotel to other tourist.
