Like some of the other reviewers we had arrived from Panaji, a hectic city to the tranquillity and peaceful surroundings of Nature's Nest. It was amazing to be in such a peaceful setting with such knowledgeable staff. The birdwatching walks were very informative and a lot of different species pointed out with such patience and precision. The food was delicious and plentiful. The accommodation, well be prepared for 'basic'. It was in keeping with the surroundings and more than adequate. Travelled with my son, daughter-in-law, who had organised the whole of our trip to India, grand-daughter and husband. It suited us all. Well recommended but as Dipayan says - keep the hard drinkers and party goers away.

Room Tip: The dripping on the roof during the night is not natures invaders but merely dew! Wish I had asked before trying to get some sleep!

We are a senior couple of bird watchers from England and France,We arrived at Nature's nest from the coast in Goa and this was paradise, Exactly a nest in the middle of Nature.The birding was excellent:7 new species before breakfast, the guides very knowledgeable,We were driven to the best places, then picked up and taken somewhere else,Hours of bird watching were included,
other activities could be arranged.Genuine Indian food was served,fresh beer available.The cottages were quaint basic and comfortable.We stayed 4 days and were sorry to leave.

Nature's Nest is one of the best birding lodges I have stayed in, even though they do not advertise themselves that way. If you are a keen birdwatcher or a general nature enthusiast, this is an ideal place for you. Simple & homely keep the general tourists away so no disturbance from hard drinking , party types that infest the rest of Goa.

The huts are in the middle of a coconut trees and powder puff plants , that attract a lot of nectar feeding birds. Sunbirds, Spider-hunters, Leafbirds etc are very easily visible within the property itself. Pankaj, Ramesh & Omkar are excellent bird guides with brilliant spotting skills. They will go out of their way to ensure you have as many sightings as possible. Their knowledge of the local areas is like the back of their hands.

Things to do - Bondla, Bhagwan Mahaveer & Tambdi Surla for birding. Do the night walk with Pankaj , to get a view into a lot of the lesser fauna that we tend to neglect.

I had travelled with a 1 year old child, and they took extra care to make us comfortable.

Overall, you should not have any complaints. Folks who are not looking for a birding / herping etc holiday might not find the place up to their liking, but that is a conscious choice made by the operators. They want to attract serious birders and nature enthusiasts. I am happy that such places exist .

I am surely coming back !!

Room Tip: All the rooms are equally good

We loved the solitude, peace, and quiet of this place. The meals were included, and it is on the edge of a wildlife preserve. They do nature walks, and and other guided tours, and the guides are knowledgeable. We loved it.

We stumbled upon canopy while searching out "close to nature" option is Goa. Positive points- the staff is courteous and helpful. The place is right in the jungle-excellent location. Since they had couple of foreigners the day we arrived, they had arranged for folkdance which was excellent. Now the other side- Try this option if you are comfortable with insects and tree frogs around you. We had opted for 4 nights, but chose to leave the next day, owing to creepy crawly creatures. Since its right in the jungle, I was mentally prepared for some adventure, but did not expect tree frogs on my bed. I would only request the management to pre-inform their guests. We had spoken at-least 2-3 times before confirming the booking. It would have been good if the management would have updated us on this , in which case we wouldn't have preferred the option, They provide a electric rod, if you need hot water. We have been to many eco friendly resorts/guest houses. But you cannot be unhygienic under the blanket of 'eco-friendly'. Bathrooms are not clean. Even hand wash is not provided, leave aside soap or shampoo. (Again this is not informed by the management). The cottage room is dusty not even swept-you need to at least keep a clean standard room when you obviously do not charge below standard rates !!!!

We respect your views. But please note that
1. It has been made clear in the website that Nature’s Nest is located in farm area close to forest and it offers accommodation in mud-lined cottages. We take safety of our guests seriously. We regret that a frog entered your room. Please note that we don’t use chemical pesticides and will never use them. Henceforth more care will be taken.
2. We see to it that the rooms and bathrooms are clean and soap is provided in the wash room. We appreciate that the guests ask for more soaps when needed.
3. Hot water facility is updated to running water through taps in the bathroom for certain time of the day.
4. Kindly note that tariff includes stay, all meals, guided nature walks, Govt. taxes. Though no hotel will allow just checking out without paying for the nights you had booked for, kindly note that no extra payment was taken from you.
