This is very unique place. Close to hustle bustle of Goa yet gives your own space and time. The place is nicely made with great combination of luxury and open spaces. Like if this was not enough. , the owners are personally involved in ensuring the stay and amenities are up to the mark. They will not hesitate to go extra mile for making the stay memorable. This place is like another home. Must visit for me now.
Wring this review almost after 8 months of visit. Late is better than never, I guess. :) We (a newly married couple) reached Goa for the first time during Holi (Indian Festival) Holidays in March 2016. Everything about this hotel is perfect. We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights. From soothing music at the reception area, to swimming pool area, to room service, room interiors, bathroom, Pool view from room, etc. The staff was humble and nice and greeted us with regards. Special Mention - 'Nisha' at the reception was very kind & helpful and suggested us the best of sightseeing points, eating joints, clubs, restaurants, etc in Goa. Though we met with a small road accident on hired scooter and I broke my left hand's pinky finger, but Nisha again helped and made sure I reach hospital for the treatment on time. Also, the lady (unable to recall name - of not Indian origin) was very helpful at the breakfast area every morning and made sure that customers doesn't face any problem as far as eatables and it's quality in concerned. Easy scooter/bike on rent facility is available at the hotel. All in all - great experience. Goa is an amazing place. We would visit Goa and The Tamarind again - sometime in our lifetime. In Love with Goa forever.
Based on my previous exp, I decided to visit this property again, expecting the last wonderful experience.
The story is different this time guys.
- booked in August , requested for Ist floor rooms , when we arrived no pre planning ad-hoc basis allotted the rooms to us , despite of my thrice reminding the reservation staff.
- we had deposited some amount as advance to the hotel , on check in we are asked to make the full payment , surprise totally !!!! No communication made to us I in all these days, now when are facing issues interms of Cash situations in India.
Pretty much a embarrassing situation for us and the staff adamant on making the full payment , then finally agreeing to check with accounts guys or try and make it next day. We currently staying in the hotel for next 3 days , but I don't feel welcomed at all , moreover it looks like they are doing a favor on us by hosting us.
Dunno how the next few days will go.
Nestled in a quite cocoon in Anjuna away from the hustle bustle - The Tamarind is a great place to unwind and spend some quality time with friends and family.
Well appointed and well maintained rooms makes a comfortable stay. The best part is it is close to a lot of action yet away from the noise.
The breakfasts at their Cottinga Cafe is awesome. In fact, before I stayed at The tamarind, I have visited the Cottinga cafe for many a breakfasts earlier.
Also, there is some or the other activity happening every other night - from salsa to movie clubs to a musical performance.
I would certainly recommend you stay here and even if you don't just head to the property to eat the Double decadence chocolate pastry - it will be worth all the effort.
Tamarind is different from the typical Goan hotels by the beach. It has this vibe of a very multicultural, multiethnic place. Almost Boho in its overall appeal. Plus a warm friendly staff, great food and lots of live music in the evening make it stand out. Its just the perfect place to chill around Anjuna, if you are not necessarily looking for putting your feet in the water every time you walk out of your room. They did have some issues with the air-conditioning but the staff sorted it efficiently. Its quite kid friendly as well with a nice pool, bicycles and with some extra space in the property for the kiddos to have some fun. The restaurant is pretty good with what it serves and they have a popular cake shop as well. Overall, worth it completely. Any time I am in Anjuna, this place will be my first choice.
