Zen Gardens : Some Details
‘Exclusive’, ‘beautifully landscaped’, ‘secure’ and ‘peaceful’. These
are the words that come to mind to describe Zen Gardens. A community
of a select few owners, this resort offers you many benefits. With a
beautiful raised private party place next to the pool, the pool
itself has a separate children’s area with steps that allow safe
access and exit. There is ample and secure car parking should you
decide to hire your own car to move about. Planned for the resort is
a restaurant, though there is a wide range of very nice food
available from both the beach shacks close by and the speciality
restaurants in the vicinity.
About South Goa and the surrounding areas
South Goa is emerging to be the preferred destination for travellers
who want quality time on their holiday. It offers a lot more
tranquil and laid back pace of life and most 5 star hotels and
resorts are located here and not in the very crowded and ‘touristy’
north. The more famous true Goan eateries like Martin’s corner are
also located in South Goa, just a short drive from Zen Gardens.
A short walk from here is the Benaulim beach, a welcome reprieve
from the overcrowded beaches of the North and yet it offers all that
you would expect: local shacks with yummy food, stalls to buy local
handicraft, beach activities on offer etc. Colva beach, which is
considered to be one of the active beaches of Goa is only a few
minutes drive away and is the ‘next’ beach from Zen Gardens.
If you are new to Goa, the apartment comes with a local contact, an
expert in the area who can guide you to activities of interest. You
will be given his mobile number for any queries.
