Karma Royal Haathi Mahal is located in Cavelossim, a small fishing village in South Goa – a serene and scenic antidote to the frenetic and bustling North.

A short stroll takes you to award-winning Mobor Beach, from where the tropical River Sal flows into the sparkling Arabian Sea. One of Asia’s top 10 beaches, this is a haven for sun-worshippers, thrill-seekers and nature-lovers alike – with boat trips, water sports and wonderfully friendly dolphins all vying for your attention.

A little further afield in Eastern Goa, you’ll find more unforgettable sights, including jewel-coloured spice plantations and the extraordinary four-tiered Dudhsagar Falls.

How to get here

From Dabolim International Airport head towards Margao, drive through the quaint villages of Colva and Benaulim onto our charming old fishing village called Cavelossim where you will find us, all in all about an hour’s drive.

The resort is approximately 15km from the city of Margao, Goa’s cultural and commercial capital, which is well served by buses and trains. The railway station, Madgaon Junction, is a 30-minute drive away. Airport and railway station transfers can be arranged on request.
