▲ Coco Shambhala Villa, Goa.

Home to nesting Oliver Ridley turtles, dolphins and blue whales, and India's International Institute for Diving, Bhogwe Beach was recently named as one of Asia's first blue flag beaches. Opening its doors last year, owner Giles, the brains behind their flagship Goa property, Coco Shambhala, which was listed in Condé Nast Traveller's 25 "Best Beach Villas in the World", is committed to benefitting the local environment and communities.

"Our distinctive brand of wild, rugged luxury and warm hospitality is designed to celebrate, support, and sustain the untouched nature and rich culture of the place and its people", Owner, Giles Knapton.

Coco Shambhala's environmentally friendly approach runs as deep as the property's foundations (or lack of them). Everything from the eco-friendly coconut wood, to the 'Catch of the Day', are locally sourced. Tailor-made menus celebrate the best of international flavors whilst using traditional techniques; local produce is transformed by Michelin trained chefs. Almost all of the staff are from the neighboring villages.

Located in one of the least populated areas in India, each two-bedroom villa includes its own infinity pool with 180-degree views of the Arabian Sea. Nestled along the Western Ghats, an area of incredible biodiversity, guests can go in search of the elusive leopard, Indian bison, basking crocodiles, and a colorful array of birdlife. Trek through jungle, tribal villages, past ancient temples, on to find concealed waterfalls. If that all sounds too exertive, what about sunrise meditation on a deserted beach, private yoga sessions, or a massage treatment at the in-house spa? At Coco Shambhala, Sindhudurg the methods by which to unwind are exhaustive.

How to get there: the nearest airport is currently Dabolim Airport, Goa, a two-and-a-half-hour journey by road. Transfers are provided on a complimentary basis. By December 2018 Sindhudurg Airport, just 15-minutes by road, will open, providing direct flights from Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport.
