About the property
Shunya Kaju Varo is one of the most exclusive and luxurious beach properties in north goa. It offers an authentic rustic ambience and yet very high standards of service and comfort. This combination is probably what makes it unique in a region where there are few alternatives to five star resort luxury which do not compromise on authenticity. Set in a mango and cashew orchard from which it gets it's name Shunya Kaju Varo
7 airconditioned luxury bedrooms and bathrooms, a lap pool, 4 lounging pools, a heated spa pool, miscellaneous outdoor bar b q and dining areas, several lounges, 24 hours housekeeping staff and resident chefs.
Despite being a realtively new retreat, Conde Nast traveler, Harpers Bazaar and CNN online have listed it as one of Goas best boutique stays and it's world class food has been praised by all of them. We have the widest range of sea food available in Goa and also a quality and varied vegetarian menu.
Attractions and distance
It is 400 m as the crow flies from the high tide line at Ashwem, the most exclusive and pristine beach in north Goa. Some of jet set Goa's best clubs, restaurants and bars are just walking distance from the property and yet the region is not over crowded like the older tourist haunts like Candolim and Baga.
This makes it perfect for reunions and family events.
While our preference is to rent as one large unit to a group of friends/ family we can break up the accommodation into smaller units with a very high degree of privacy if your budget is inadequate. So do write in and ask for more details even if your numbers range from 16 to 2!

Travelling to Goa with a group of 11 students from the Architectural Association in London, we wanted to stay in a place with character that would be our point of departure for exploring Goa. We found the perfect solution in Kaju Varo and Noi Varo.
The students loved the former for its array of unique structures each with a personality of its own while affording them privacy with a central area for collective discussion. We, the tutors, stayed in Noi Varo which was simply stunning and luxurious with high-ceilinged rooms, state of the art bathrooms and relaxing common areas with a private lap pool. It was the ideal retreat after long days exploring the Goan landscape.
The staff at both properties were so helpful and kind; finding us transportation, offering suggestions of where to go and making us delicious food and drinks. (We couldn't get enough of the delicious tea!)
Vikram and Loise also went out of their way to come meet with us and explain how they had developed the two properties and built the many unique buildings of Kaju Varo and restored the villa at Noi Varo - a talk we all found insightful and inspirational.
All in all, we had a brilliant trip and we hope we can come back to visit again!
Kaju Varo is a fantastic property that can serve as your home base in Ashwem/North Goa.
Vikram was very responsive and accommodated our needs for a family reunion during the reservation process.
Diego, Gopal, Prashant and the other guys were fabulous as on-site managers, chef and hosts. Their Goan cooking was super yummy. Try the stuffed mackerel, bhindi (okra) and grilled prawns in Goan style.
HIghly recommend Kaju Varo for a full take over or just a single villa rental. It's walking distance to Ashwem beach, restaurants and even some late night bars/clubs.
Hope to be back!
Kaju Varo was an incredibly wonderful villa. We booked the entire place for our post-wedding celebrations and everyone was very impressed with the quality of service, the sophistication and elegance of decor and the all-round feeling of luxury. And the chef was probably the best part of the entire experience - he cooked us up meal after fabulous meal - a real treasure of a place. Will definitely return!
Could not speak more highly of Kaju Varo and the brilliant staff who looked after us for our 5 day stay. From start to finish our experience was top class. We were a group of 16 (mixture of couples and singles) and hired our the entire property with everyone very comfortable with more than enough room for this number. We arrived at 6am and were greeted by several friendly staff who promptly delivered luggage to our respective rooms so we could settle in for a nap after our overnight flight.
Vivek, Deepak and the team looked after us fantastically well and we ate dinner from the extensive menu each night of our stay (orders placed in the morning so the guys could buy supplies from the market). Breakfast was included daily and was again a la carte.
Diego and his team kindly offerred to purchase any other snacks, beverages, beers etc from the local market daily and we were charged only market price.
The quality of the accommodation is great with each dwelling offering a slightly different experience will all offering a good level of privacy from the next. The common pool and under cover dining area were great and provided ample room for us to enjoy.
Anything else we required from moped hire, taxis, extra linen, bedding, iPod docks etc were all handed promptly and with a smile.
I would definately recommend Kaju Varo for couples or small/large groups and if back in Goa will definately stay with them again.
