A nice place to take a break, it is full of 2 kinds of water - sea water and tender coconut water. The caretaker is an amazing guy and the food he cooks is out of the world!! The concept here is to take you closer to the nature and hence expect no luxury. While this sounds super cool, we...

This property is bang on the bavikodla beach. Except for few fishermen at a distance there is not a soul around the beach to disturb you. One can enjoy awesome sunset by sipping a cup of hot coffee. Food is brilliant. I cant say about the choices in veg but its a treat for non veg lovers. There are cute...

Tired of the chaos in Goa, my wife and I finally decided to make a beach trip to Gokarna. Of the many beaches in Goa ( Om Beach, Kudle beach, etc.) the most "out there" beach is Ganga beach. That's where the Linger property is. We reached Linger early morning on the day of Ganesh Chathurti. I dropped my bags...

We stayed at linger for a night and two days in Feb 2015. The approach is really bad.. be ready for a good walk. The staff was very helpful. Cottages were not great. Don't expect 100% privacy. Also, bathroom doors don't shut completely. The worst part of the stay was that I am not at all an animal person and...

We usually are very careful that our guests know the nature of the place exactly how it is - from the walk (it's in the middle of farms, and a 300-400mtr walk, as we make explicit), the thatched huts, and the fact that it's a completely natural coconut grove (its also part of the CRZ hence we are extra careful...

Good enjoyable weekend at the guest house. Excellent food and service, very friendly and helpful staff. Great private beach, brilliant for lounging around. Try the fish curry, banana bajjis and pancakes and the unlimited supply of coconut water. The attic was cosy - the best place to sleep. I did however expect more books in the promised library.

Delighted you liked your do nothing time at our Gokarna huts! As for the books - we just dispatched a couple of dozen more - some do get carried home by guests who later send them back to us! And do write to us about why missed that one star :) - TeamLinger

True to Linger DNA, this is another destination which allows you to enjoy the beautiful beaches in peace .. The beach is as pristine as south goa beaches but at the same time much quieter ..

After a long drive from bangalore we reached just before sunset at 6PM. I must admit our first impression was not so good for two reasons; one the guy took us through a jungle to the cottages from patang resort. The path was narrow full of bushes, farms, cactus etc. Second cottage 3 and 5 were in the corner (we...

Thanks for the encouraging words :) And glad you had a good time there - will pass the kudos on to the team. The road on the other side has been planned for a while now and pending with the panchayat folks - unfortunately we can do little to move that faster :/ We'll add lights as needed - thanks...

Well it is totally a different experience! But true to Linger's promise just did nothing, and experienced the hut and village living in that remote beach! Very simple but nice food, extremely helpful staff. If you are pampered by luxury resorts this is not the place for you :-) but if you are willing to experiment give it a try,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
5 rustic thatched huts in a coconut grove right by the beach. You can see a coconut tree from anywhere in the hut. Hammocks outside, and lots of sea breeze for company. Each hut has a cozy bed up in the attic, and a spare twin below for extra folks and kids. It's a rural location unvisited by the touristy hordes. Peace, quiet, books and tender coconuts all day.As always, it's a truly all inclusive affair - just ask the boys.[We're about 350mts from where you leave your car. Road to the property in the works, but we're wondering if that's a good thing!] ... more   less
