  • Nice place to visit. Liked to see all the spices which where grown there. Goan food was nice veg and non veg options available. Friendly staff and original products available for sale
  • Very good place. They welcome you with garlands and serve lemon grass tea. The guides enlighten you about the uses of different spices. Also,they have buffet for lunch. A must-visit location. Please visit if you can.
  • Small spice garden and entry fee is higher compared to its area as it takes just 20-30 minutes to cover entire area. The food is good and is included in the entry fee of Rs. 400/person along with welcome herbal tea. The place is away from chaos of city and is peaceful, lusciously‚Äč green and cooler than city nearby.
  • You gotto go here. Extremely well kept. Very poor signage, but if you manage to find it, you will enjoy the place. Lots of tropical plants, and then they give you some fantastic food, that you will not forget. On your way out grab some spices...to brighten your life.
  • This place is for someone who wants to see more than beaches in Goa. It's quite far from the main city area, about 50 kms so make sure you go with ample supply of water and sunscreen. They serve you lunch inside which I think is good for the fare they charge. You actually feel relaxed in presence of all those fragrant trees.

Where to stay in Goa

One of the more affordable regions for staying in India, Goa offers a good range of sleeping options, from budget to luxurious. Visitors looking for that feeling of home away from home can explore rental apartments, which offer more space than a hotel room and often come with fully equipped kitchens. Look for an apartment in Oxel or Siolim, peaceful villages with gated communities and a range of facilities. Beach houses and private villas offer an alternative for those with deeper pockets, while beach huts/shacks work well for budget-conscious travelers.
