Coco Shambhala is a collection of 4 luxury vacation villas in Goa, India, for exclusive holidays. Set in a tropical garden with a freeform jungle swimming pool in their midst, the villas are a blend of architecture, design and service to excite your senses.
Conde Nast Traveller recognised our unique design and attention to detail by including us in ‘The 25 Best Beach Villas in the World’. Outlook Traveller also awarded us as the Best Boutique in India for 2016.
Our villas in Goa sit in complete harmony with the local landscape and cultural milieu, to provide the discerning traveller with a romantic retreat—a place of privacy that nurtures a sense of balance, much needed in the hectic lives of today.
Each luxury villa has a stunning tree top living pavilion, a private plunge jet pool, 2 large bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a kitchen and a complimentary car and driver.
Etymologically, Ashvini implies the usherer of dawn, of a movement from ignorance to knowledge. This 02 bedroom villa is situated closest to the swimming pool set in the midst of the Coco Shambhala gardens and is most easily accessible from the Coco Shambhala entrance.
Ashlesha signals the embrace of a constellation of stars. This 02 bedroom villa is ideal for couples looking for a romantic getaway, with one bedroom on the ground floor and the second bedroom situated on the first floor of the villa. It is located in a lovely corner of Coco Shambhala, close to the in-house spa.
Rohini is the embodiment of female energy—of a woman. Both bedrooms in this villa are located on the ground floor, making it an ideal vacation space for elderly couples and families with young children.
Bharini, in Sanskrit, stands for accomplished and stable. This villa is beautifully laid out in a quiet corner of the Coco Shambhala jungle gardens and boasts of 02 bedrooms—one on the ground floor and another on the first floor. The jet pool area of this villa is a silent retreat for those looking to spend some quiet time, perhaps with feet in the pool and a book in hand.
The open air living pavilions of the Coco Shambhala luxury villas are spaces designed for dining and lounging. They work beautifully for quiet reading, romantic dining and group bonding, while providing a peek into the rich birdlife of the jungle gardens and the tempting, turquoise waters of the swimming pool below.
In the jet pool area, the architect has used his penchant for relaxing and sensual spaces. By day, this tranquil space is a shady haven cooled by a ceiling fan whirring softly overhead and by night, a richly cloistered space with artistically lit pillars, flickering candles and dappled reflected light on the walls.
The bedrooms are designed to provide natural light and boast of vintage Indo-Portuguese furniture, sitting alongside the modern amenities of a television set, Wi-Fi and an i-pod docking station. Some of these come with open air shower areas!
For larger groups, our luxury villas are designed to work together, having being named the best in the world for small groups of friends and family (Conde Nast Traveller); we recommend booking all 4 villas that can accommodate up to 20 people, for a completely private experience.
