Bright & airy.
We had a lovely stay. Thankyou.
We"ll be back
One of the reasons we picked this apartment was the promise of a large outside terrace and we certainly were not disappointed. It was amazing to get up in the mornings and breakfast on the terrace overlooking the lovely swimming pool and swaying coconut palms. The apartment is very comfortable and modern with all the facilities needed to cope with the heat. The small complex of Zen Gardens is ideally situated for shopping and restaurants and if you are lazy like me and don't always want the stroll to the beach the tuctuc stand is a matter of yards away charging 100 rupees for a lift to get you there.
Overall a fantastic holiday and we certainly will be back

Benaulim stands slap in the middle of the spectacular 25-kilometer pure white sand Colva beach, 7km west of Margao, Goa’s second city. It is still hard to beat as a place to unwind, the seafood is superb, the beach breathtaking. Shelving away almost to Cabo da Rama on the horizon, the beach is lined with Goa’s largest, and most colorfully decorated, fleet of wooden outriggers... Benaulim’s proximity to Margao market, along with the presence of a large Christian fishing community, means its restaurants serve some of the tastiest, competitively priced seafood in Goa.” (Rough Guide)
Zen Gardens is two minutes’ walk from Maria Hall crossroads, where there are fruit and vegetable stalls, a newspapers, pharmacy, bank/ATM, restaurant and bar, wine shop, rickshaw and taxi stands, and regular buses to Margao, Colva and the package tour resorts of Varca, Cavelossim and Mobor; A further five minutes leads to the village center, where there are travel agents, money exchange, internet cafes, mobile phone shop, supermarket, German bakery, ice-cream parlors, hairdressers and a good choice of restaurants and bars, A further 10 minutes’ walk past the paddy fields leads to the beautiful unspoiled beach with a dozen or so “shacks” providing the best value food and drink in Goa, water sports and dolphins. Cycles, motor bikes and cars can be rented cheaply in the village.
Margao, which is only 10 minutes away by bus (Rs10) or rickshaw/taxi, is Goa’s second city (after Panajii) and provides a taste of the real India, particularly in its fascinating covered market. Colva, south Goa’s largest resort, is 10 minutes away by bus or rickshaw, or a pleasant 40 minute walk along the beach or through the lanes
South Goa is a beautiful, peaceful area (in contrast to the busy and more developed tourist areas in the North), with wild life sanctuaries, isolated beaches, temples, old Portuguese mansions, waterfalls, spice plantations and boat trips all easily reached by taxi or your own transport.
Panajii, the capital of Goa, which has excellent shopping and restaurants, and the World Heritage site of Old Goa, are an hour away. Benaulim is 30 minutes from the airport.South Goa has a beautiful stretch of beach of over 27 kilometers between Betelbatim and Varca and the village of Benaulim is conveniently situated between the two. Benaulim has many attractions including numerous restaurants and beach shacks which provided inexpensive sea food and alcohol as well as Indian and Chinese cuisine.
