Hi Adam

We got back from Palolem about 10 days ago.

There a number of Massage centres in the beach hut "resorts".

Bridge and Tunnel have one and "Papillon" also had one as that's where we stayed. On the Beach front a couple others were also advertising their centres.

What I noticed was that the prices are not advertised. They will give you a description of the treatment and the length of time it takes.

Mrs IT wanted a full body, head, face and feet massage. One of the centres asked for 500 rps. She asked at the Papillon centre and they said 600 rps. Mrs IT said she had been quoted 400 rps and asked if they could beat it. They did the massage for 300 rps!

So I guess your going to have to haggle.

Hope this helps

IT

Need help regarding massage

I am planning to go on a trip to Goa during July. I need some good information about the massage centers in Palolem.
Both me and my wife are willing to have the massage.
Should we first contact the Hotel manager to arrange a boy or we can negotiate with a masseur from the beach?
Also my wife would not be comfortable to get the massage on the beach. So will it possible to arrange the massage in the hotel room or hut/cottage where we would be staying?
Please suggest on this if anyone has any experience....
Are the masseurs professional enough for massaging females?

The one that I went to had a male and female masseur with Mrs IT using the services of the female one. They were both fully qualified and professional. Just go along the beech and get the best price and see what your resort price comes up with.

Hi Sudhan

TO be honest with you I wouldn't know the telephone numbers. The Papillion resort where I stayed simply had a massage service as do most for the resorts. I kind of traveled off peak so the availability was fine. Simply went there and they did it straight away.

If I had spent more time getting more quotes around the beach then I guess I could have knocked off an extra 50 rupees but I didn't think it would be worth it

Hope this helps

Thanks IT for the info and promptness.

Could you tell me about your stay at Papillion Resort, as I was planning to book it today for my next week trip. But after reading reviews where people had unanimously felt that there is problems of cockroaches, so to the extent that it just flies across and crawls on ur forehead too while sleeping. And same was with Bhakti Kutir.

Eventually planning book at Chattai at Palolem.

Thanks
Sudhan

I am surprised at these comments you have heard. We were "lucky" to have a hut that was facing the sea and away not very center to the rest of the complex. It was really wonderful just laying on the bed and looking out of the bed and seeing the sea.

With regards to cockroaches - we never had anything like that. They provided us with a mosquito net so not really sure how they could be crawling on your forehead.

The food at Papillion was very good in my opinion and they had a good range. I went to some of the other resorts but the food was not as good. Breakfast at Papillion was something I looked forward to as the restaurant was nicely laid out and the banana pancakes were excellent!

I would say the prices are more expensive then some of the other resorts. One of the owners is a British nurse who gets a lot of British tourists to go there. We went off peak so there was not that much of a squeeze - which is also the reason I didn't bother booking in advance.

To be honest if there are cockroaches in one of the resorts then there would be cockroaches in all of them as they are all close to each other.

Chattai was also my first choice before going goa - the prices were a little off putting and also the resort didn't seem to have as much as a link with the natural surrounding as the hut we had in Papillion.

I like swimming and the sea was very gentle at Palolem. There is a "dome" of stone further out which I swam to and climbed (be careful its quite sharp). When the tides out you can walk most of the way! We also did the dolphin ride and saw many dolphins. Most of the time at Palolem was just for relaxing and taking long walks in the evenings.

The last day of our trip involved going back up northwards and we stayed at Colva which was too commercial for me but lots of family events. On the day of our train Journey up to Mumbai we went to Benaulim for a few hours (we hired deck chairs with sun shades) and the sea was very active but "wave surfing" was amazing. I also got a a speed boat to pull me into the air by parachute which was brilliant.

We really did enjoy our journey and hope you do to.

(If you do face any of the problems you mentioned I would very much like to know as we are planning to go back)

Regards

IT
