I went at the emerald bay for few days and i was not disappointed. The service and the staff was excellent. The room was clean and spacious. The restaurant and the food was ok maybe it can be improved. This hotel is well located and the price room is correct.

On my way to Karwar from Goa after a long 130 Km non-stop drive we decided to take a pit-stop at Palm Grove Restaurant within the Sterling Resort premises. Some years back I had occasion to stay at the place on a business trip. Not much has changed. The restaurant is poorly done up but the rates are on the...

Visited the place in the month of November. Very nice location especially if you are looking for peace and tranquillity. The Hotel is not Super luxury but however being a Sterling Managed Property, one does get a certain amount of Standard for it. The Best part of the Property is that atleast it's Clean and Hygienic. Food Variety is limited...

Located next to the estuary where the Kali river meets the Arabian Sea, and with the Sahyadri mountains forming a backdrop, Emerald Bay is a full-service Sterling Holidays resort that offers some beautiful glimpses of an unspoilt, unexplored region of India. The backwaters of the Kali River add to the beauty of this place. Karwar is a great holiday destination due its close proximity to Goa.
