Kerkar Retreat
Ranked #59 of 221 Calangute B&B and Inns
Reviewed 28 June 2010

Kerkars is a VFM hotel. Only a few rooms set within an art gallery, it is a quirky place to stay. My room was large and painted blue with a matching painting by Dr Kerkar. Clean and large bathroom. With a small kitchen with a gas burner and a fridge, it is meant for travellers who are mostly out of the hotel. The mattress and bed could have been better.

They have a restaurant Waves - limited menu, good food though on the higher end. Downside - no staff usually around so if you need reccos etc you need to search a bit for the manager.

For the price and the location - 5 mins away from the Calangute beach, I would recommend it to indie travellers

Want to live with art... We did and enjoyed the huge rooms that had art inside them. There is a gallery in the same building and behind the mansion there is a restaurant that hosts weekly shows of Indian, music & performance instead of Karaoke.

Short walk to the beach and some good restaurants... And the Hotel is on the more quieter part of Goa so you don´t have to be haggled all the time.

Nice staff and good service for a small price.
Definitely worth it! =)

The Kerkar Retreat is in an old house that has some charm, however the beds and bedlinen require serious attention. I was severly bitten by either bedbugs or fleas. This is not a budget accommodation, and at the price the proprietors could purchase some new sheets and pillows. As an establishment owned by a medical practitioner this accommodation warrants considerable improvement in the standard of cleanliness and linen.

Despite the warning that it might be noisy the Kerkar was a delight. Good food, a quiet atmosphere. Facilities to do your own cooking, although the restaurant was very good.
The noise, from a restaurant next door, was a soloist singingto the music from all the oldies from the 50 - 80's which he had learned by listening to the words.
It was a treat and very entertaining. It ended at 11 pm.
