Karma Royal Haathi Mahal Crowned #1 on Trip Advisor

Karma Royal Haathi Mahal has long been a popular fixture among our resort offerings in Southern India – and for very good reason. Not only is it perfectly situated to take advantage of some of the top highlights of the fabled state of Goa – but Trip Advisor has just named it the #1 resort in Cavelossim, among the 17 that are listed in the area!

It’s a testament to the consistent levels of excellence our staff and management bring to their work that Karma Royal Haathi Mahal finds itself in this position and we’d like to thank General Manager Lijo George and his whole team as well as George Lobo, GM Resorts – India, Esperanca Patricio, President & Managing Director (India & Middle East) and Kevin Augustine, President – Sales & Marketing (India & Middle East) for their hard work and dedication – as well as all those people who took the time to review their stay at the resort.

Haathi Mahal means Elephant Palace – a fitting name for our award-winning flagship property in Goa. Situated between the sparkling Arabian Sea and Goa’s third largest river, the Sal, Haathi Mahal is the perfect base from which to explore India’s legendary Southern state – from the endless beaches of sugary white sand to the state’s interior with its rich tapestry of flora & fauna including elephants and tigers.

Attwood’s Pub is fashioned after a Cornish smugglers tavern, with a cosy atmosphere, gourmet pub grub and frothy ales – there’s even an anteroom that houses a dart board, library and games room with a pool table and mini movie theatre!

Outside, the Splash swim-up bar is the perfect place to while away the afternoon over a Karma signature cocktail and some tapas style bites, prepared to order at the Gallery Grill.

Karma Spa takes a holistic approach to health and wellbeing combining massage therapies and spa curatives inspired by India’s ancient tradition of Ayurveda with a range of fitness modalities.

If you haven’t yet had a chance to experience it – now’s the perfect opportunity to discover just why visitors rate it so highly 🙂
