We serve a deliciously healthy tropical breakfast and in the restaurant and bar area between 7 - 10 am daily. Breakfast is complimentary, however other meals are not included.
We believe that food should nourish the body and so we always use good quality organic products and locally sourced produce where possible. In an effort to be healthier humans and help Save the Planet by reducing methane emissions and cruelty to animals, you will not find any meat products in our menu.

Palm Forest is a little hidden away and off the main road. Where possible please contact us in advance to advise us of your arrival time. We can also arrange transfers from the airport/ bus and train stations. If you come by car please stay in contact with us and we can either meet you at the car park of your choice, or on the road to take your luggage before you park your car.
There is no space for car parking at the hotel as we are not on a main road but rather located on a property in between the main road and the beach. Car parking is available for a fee at one of the car parks on the main road, and we can meet you there to provide direction to Palm Forest. There is space to park your scooter but this is public unsecured parking just off of the main road.
All Children are welcome. One child under 12 years stays free of charge when using existing beds. All children under 2 years stay free of charge for children's cots/cribs. Extra children will be charged INR.500 per night.
Although we love animals, we have to say no to pets at Palm Forest. There are many local dogs in the area which may not react well to your pet, and some guests are allergic or fearful of animals. We want everyone to be safe and comfortable here.
For your health and the health of others our rooms and property are entirely non-smoking.
Accessibility or People of Determination
Although our cottages only have a couple of steps leading up to them, the surrounding area can be difficult to access for people with limited mobility due to the sand, narrow path and steps down to the beach. That said, with your permission we are willing and happy to assist under your direction. We appreciate that there is a spectrum of needs, so please feel welcome to discuss with us any assistance or information you may need.
The electricity in South Goa cannot unfortunately be called reliable.There may be times during your stay when we do not have electricity in the hotel or in the huts. Please try to see this as part of the charm of being on holiday in India. Unfortunately, it is out of our control.
