Well trained staff and spacious rooms


I visited Goa with my friends. We stayed 4 nights at this hotel. The location of the hotel is good with pleasant environment. The environment around this hotel was very pleasant and a good place to relax. We had a unique experience at this hotel. No distractions like polluting sounds, very silent environment around the hotel which gives us a good feeling. The hotel was very stylish with enriched look. The staff was so caring. They lifted our luggage every moment. The rooms at the hotel had a good theme with good artists. The pool service at the hotel was awesome. A waterfall behind where you can swim. Beautiful sea view. This view can also be enjoyed from each view. The food at the hotel was somewhat better. They offer few varieties of food but when compared with the environment of the hotel food is a very small matter. Overall we had a good stay at this hotel. This hotel is recommended for those who are looking for a good environment.

Fantastic hotel, rooms are large and elegant


There is a place where in addition to this is the spirit to live above all a unique experience. A magical place and refined that can get you out completely from the world and make you live an experience of peace and serenity surrounded by lush vegetation. Rooms large elegant and relaxing at the kitchen staff very professional but friendly tone, that feels so say in their home between sky and sea. Fantastic.

This is a superb luxury hotel

Posted 26 Dec, 2013

Everything at Nilaya was perfect, the room, the service, the staff, the food (the chef was so gracious, nothing was too much trouble), the pool, the monkeys, peacocks, beautiful birds, the massages, the yoga. I could have stayed a week, but sadly we only 2 nights, three days and no problem with a late check out . This is a superb luxury hotel in a stunning setting . . Room Tip:-. We stayed in the blue room but all rooms are beautiful with its own characteristics, each one uniquely designed. Some are huge and some are smaller, but I would want to stay in a different room every time

Good food facilities and nice rooms

Posted 8 Oct, 2014

Overall my stay in the hotel was good. Location wise, the hotel was situated in isolated area and it was far from the beach. It was a package trip. Pick and drop facility was available there. Inside and outside look of the hotel was good. Services were on time. Any scenic view was not available from the room window. I stayed there four days. Food facility was available there but I took my food from outside. I had no problem during check in and check out facility. Room, washroom, pillow and bed sheets were neat, clean. All basic amenities were available in the room like TV, AC, etc and they all were working properly. Hotel was value for money. Activities were available there like boating, riding, etc. I traveled there with my husband. It was a honeymoon trip. Hotel arranged cab facility for sightseeing trip for us it was included in my package. Goa as destination place is nice for travelers.

Well-decorated rooms and free Wifi facility

Posted 17 Feb, 2015

Forget prestigious hotels, immerse yourself in the quiet and refinement of this beautiful place; exceptional guest house. The refinement of the decor, the lush greenery surrounding dwellings are amazing. The food is excellent, combining Indian ingredients with fine cuisine of Western, a delight for the taste buds. The rooms are very comfortable, decorated with taste. A place in voluptuous calm, a real retreat for doing good. Moreover free WiFi .

Spacious rooms with good facilities

Posted 21 Feb, 2015

After our one week tour of Karnataka, we came to rest in this hotel. It was hidden in the jungle and consisted of several small hemispherical house. Each spacious room was decorated differently, large bathrooms, nice swimming pool, fitness center with Ayurveda Department, tennis court and outdoor restaurant. The rooms were very appealing, especially the common music room. The hotel's shuttle service also took us once to the beach. A heavenly place

Caring staff and excellent staff

Posted 3 Mar, 2015

The hotel made a stylish but somewhat bad impression on us due to check-in problems after 2 hours drive. Also, the staff were caring and helpful. The food was good, the service was excellent pool and common areas nice and airy. The beautiful spa and massage practised by massage professional therapists was good.
