We were lucky to have the place to ourselves. So if you are booking ahead make sure there are no other bookings because its a cozy place and can get uncomfortable with strangers. Food was really good with menus tailor-made to our preferences. Highly recommended. Good access to an empty beach. Beach is not calm like in some of the popular places but we enjoyed the waves and empty shore.

Thanks to Ramesh and his family, my trip exceeded all expectations! I can not imagine a place better than Goyambokka View Guesthouse!! I felt better than at home. Ramesh and his team remarkable in their responsiveness, sincerity, desire to help and make your stay comfortable and unforgettable. The rooms are incredibly comfortable and clean, the area is cozy and quiet, and most importantly - Ramesh is an amazing cook! For 3 weeks, we enjoyed a varied breakfast, local specialties, fish, seafood and incredible fruits! The beach is just 5 minutes walk. I look forward to the opportunity to return to this place and I will highly recommend this Homestay to my friends

This place ticks all the right boxes if you’re looking for style and sophistication on a budget. Set within the village of Goyambokka, a short four minute walk to the beach it’s very quiet and surrounded by luscious jungle. The rooms are very nicely appointed with comfortable four poster beds and mattresses and en-suite shower rooms which are functional and spotlessly clean. We had dinner and we were treated to a delicious traditional rice and curry with a prawn curry also. The breakfast was huge with loads of fresh fruit, curd (buffalo yogurt) toast and eggs. Ramesh the owner was eloquent and eager to please and topped of a wonderful stay with his enthusiasm and passion for his boutique hotel he created.

A great small guesthouse offering personal service by the charming host, Ramesh. There are only two rooms at present but there has been a great attention to detail in considering the guests’ needs. Very comfortable beds and practical bathrooms. Delicious breakfast. Nothing seemed too much trouble. We also had a wonderful dinner too and lots of food for those with a good appetite!
