This was to be the second hotel we stayed in on our visit to Goa, somewhere quiet and relaxed with a little bit of something special - or so we were led to believe. Nested at the top of a steep entrance road with spectacular views to the west over Arpora towards Baga, the location and rooms looked wonderful. We were the only guests though (alarm bells tinkling) and so were given a choice of rooms and chose the spectacular Art Room though we had some reservations around the outdoor shower room/toilet and the wooden slats which we were assured wouldnt have any amphibian visitors. We took a dip in the very cool and deep pool before relaxing on the terrace. We needed to order our evening meal early so they could get/prepare it!! (Alarm bells getting a little louder). After a shower and cooling off, I revisited the shower room/toilet to find a frog there - my wife has a phobia of them so I tried removing it but failed. Eventually we found an attendant and they managed to get rid of it - only to find a second. Then four lizards came out of the A/C at which point we said we HAD to move. We were offered a sealed room - suffice to say it wasnt. And in-between, the meal we had was distinctly poor. (Alarm bells ringing loudly now). We slept in the Sun Room - the A/C was extremely noisy and kept stopping every 10 minutes - suffice to say that by the morning we werent relaxed. And after another four geckos & Lizards, they finally admitted that none of the rooms were sealed - they could be (weve stayed in the Amazon and Africa and never had a problem) but closer inspection revealed that the maintenance of the place was sub-standard. Nothing fitted. Nothing was finished. The grounds could be spectacular, they arent. The birds and the wildlife outside were good up to a point but you couldnt strike out anywhere. Even though we were just outside Arpora, there wasnt a walking short-cut available and you had to use their taxi. It was very isolating and with no-one else there, an odd, relatively expensive and uninspiring menu, it wasnt the luxuriant spot we were led to believe. Service wasnt great and though the various people were kind and tried to do something to help, they couldnt. If you want a place away from it all in eclectic surroundings with sub-standard, expensive food and dont mind creatures IN your room (fully expect them outside), then you may like it here. It could be great, BUT......

When we first arrived in Goa it felt a little weird driving into the hillside and away from the beaches, but we were so extremely happy that we did! The Nilaya Hermitage is a wonderfully relaxing resort. It's a boutique hotel with very uniquely decorated rooms - ours had very steep steps down into the bedroom - definitely needing to concentrate and take off the high heels to navigate them! We were at the end of an extensive tour around the northern parts of India and in need of some R&R - originally thinking this would have been in a beach resort. The staff were all incredibly friendly and we barely moved from our resort, other than a day trip to the northern beaches which we found all too frantic, and a shopping trip into Panaji. The pool was fabulous, the resort peaceful and the food served for breakfast, lunch and dinner to our taste.

I my wife and son had the most amazing time at Nirvana Hermitage. It is a beautiful resort on a hill, quiet, serene and so, so relaxed. Our stay in Goa was the best holiday we have had in a long long time, especially in Goa where all hotels are so commercial and crowded.Nirvana Hermitage has a wonderful staff, ever helpful and polite, the manager is the sweetest hospitality person we have ever met, who was there for every need and every question with a smile on his face. Would recommend a stay at Nirvana Hermitage when you want to be a part of paradise and yet away from crowds.

We were in Goa for a weekend and loved this beautiful place. We are not into the party scene so especially enjoyed the quiet atmosphere of Nilaya. Food was good. Our room was spacious and beautiful. We got massages which were excellent. Did not swim in the pool but it was lovely. They arranged a driver to take us to Old Goa and a nearby beach one day. Perfect for a romantic weekend away from the big cities. We loved this place.

This hotel has been designed by an artist cum architect who was give free hand to design whatever beautiful came to her/his mind! Every little detail of this hotel nestled into the natural forest of a hill has been crafted with love and skill. It is a quiet place where you should go to chill out in absolute serene beauty. We only visited the hotel and had drinks but we were welcomed by the friendly staff as though we were old friends.
