“Beautiful, but away from the action!”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

Stayed at Zuri for 3 days in december'11. The rooms were fantastic and comfortable. The food was awesome and the people were friendly.
The only problem is that this place is at the south end of Goa, and hence you are far away from where all the action happens i.e., Anjuna, Baga etc.

Nice place to relax for a couple of days. Food is on the expensive side - Rs 275 for a plate of Idli!
Will definitely recommend!

Room Tip: Choose the inner section of the hotel, towards the pool side.

We really enjoyed our stay, large room overlooking the smaller pool. Staff in restaurant helpful, everyone working there smiles and greets you very politely. The beach is wide and long not crowded. Shack (Misha) on the beach lovely, especially watching the sun go down. Gardens were huge with plants, trees and flowers everywhere. Would return.

The property is one of the finest in Goa with an excellent beach. The property is comparable with the best seen in Bali. The beach sand is almost like talcum powder - so soft, I have not seen anywhere. The pool is huge by any standards and it snakes around the property. The housekeeping service was slow and the food was nothing to write about. The hotel was full even in April which goes to the credit of Goa and the hotel.

My family and I stayed in Goa in February in several resorts. We had read good reviews about Zuri White Sands on TripAdvisor and decided to stay there for a few nights...what a mistake! The resort smacks of a decrepit Las Vegas hotel: aged, shabby, uncared for and staffed by people who don't seem to like their jobs very much. Oh yes, there are also cockroaches. When we informed reception they didn't seem very surprised. The cleaning staff simply swept the roach out of our room to the hallway immediately outside of our door. Hmmm. There are so many other lovely places to stay in Goa in the same price range that it breaks my heart to imagine anyone using precious holiday time and money ending up at this place. Please, please, please....do yourself a favour and find another place to stay!

Dear Guest

It was very surprising to see your comments about our resort. While we humbly wish to state that our team members are exceptionally warm, hospitable and go beyond expectations to make every guest happy and have a wonderful experience, we are sorry that you did not feel the same. It is quite evident from the many reviews of how our guests enjoy their stay with us. If you wish to share any other concerns you may please write to us at gr.whitesands@thezurihotels.com. Cleanliness and hygiene of all areas is of utmost importance to us and we also have a pest control company working round the clock in all areas of the hotel. You must have noticed that our resort has a vast expanse of landscaped gardens and for this reason we are even more careful to prevent any insects entering the rooms. We value each and every guest of ours and it is our endeavor to win back dissatisfied guest and we wish to make amends for the issues which might have made your stay not so memorable.

superior room with pool view,well worth the little extra.the pool is large enough to find your own private spot.breakfast offered excellent choice for everybody,waiters were attentive and helpful.the service in the room was very good,we never had to ask twice for anything twice and the room were cleaned every day.reception staff were very helpful.the only drawback,on some nights was the sound of music around the grounds(although this is over by 10-30pm)from other hotels viewed in the south this suited us the best,

Room Tip: we chose superior room with pool view and it was suitable for our needs,
