A short walk from Morjim Beach, but hidden away by majestic antique doors, is the tropical zen- garden of the Ku "energy retreat". Through the gates, walk down the stepping stones of a Japanese inspired pond, flanked on either side by two wooden cottages comprising the guest accommodations to the open kitchen and restaurant. Currently, KU is being overseen by Rajeev Samant (Founder, Sula Wines), a dear friend of the property's European owners. Rajeev has, amongst other things, installed a daily Goan / Maharashtran thali (a rarity in these parts) along with a permanent Sula bar.

 

Morjim's first and still one of the area's most unique resorts, Ku epitomizes the concept of "Boutique Hotel". Truly unique, Ku describes itself as an "energy retreat", replete with a luxurious tropical garden, a walk-way of stepping stones over a Japanese inspired pond, two individual hand-crafted wooden huts for accommodations and an open-air restaurant on its mezzanine with views of lush paddy fields and the beach beyond. 

 

The intimate and exquisite hide-away is not only surrounded by nature, but is built with it, where every facet of the resort has been created entirely of natural material. Hidden-away behind towering antique doors, Ku's secret garden transports you to another time and place, while the area's hip hang-outs are a mere minute's walk away.

ACCOMMODATIONS
Ku's two guestrooms comprise two individual 80 square meter Japanese wooden houses built entirely by hand. The cottages feature wooden floors and a wooden shoji (traditional Japanese sliding doors and windows) facing the lush tropical garden and water path. Each cottage has an allocated bathroom with shower areas, while one hut offers a romantic bathtub in the centre of the room. 
 
A night at Ku also includes a delectable breakfast spread, with tropical fruit juices and eggs to order, which may be served anywhere in the Ku property or in the privacy of the cottage.
 
THE RESTAURANT
Ku's restaurant, under its current management, offers simple, authentic healthy and absolutely delicious Goan and Maharashtran thalis - a traditional fare where individual dishes are served up in small metal bowls aesthetically arranged on a large metal plate. The seafood option features delectable curries of clams, fish or prawns. The dishes are changed regularly based on demand and the day's catch!
