"There was a time it was believed that if there is a piece of heaven is on earth it’s in Kashmir but I can totally contest that it’s also at the ‘Cintacor island resort,’ with gorgeous views to remember for a lifetime but views are only for the eyes, on a holiday the soul is equally important, I experienced the most amazing Spa treatment with stunning views overlooking the ocean with the happy dolphins in the waters making it a meditative experience. Food for thought’, the chef at the resort, makes you experience another level of the epicurean world, with mouth watering cuisines, stylishly served, by a very warm set of the hospitality department. The nature walk guided by an expert, through the winding paths along the island with a fabulous narration of the history and the flora and fauna alongside the mystery creek was an enchanting experience. On the resort each and every one was so welcoming an amazing holiday only happens with the staff, food, rooms are all on point!! it’s a wholesome experience.
Thank you to the entire team for a memorable holiday"

"This beautiful island resort is a 20 minute boat trip from Karwar. The cabins are luxurious with wonderful views of the sea.
There are numerous activities that the resort organises- boat trips around the island and hikes.
The small private beach is the perfect place to relax and unwind as is the gorgeous infinity pool.
The chef at this resort deserves a Michelin star, his food is delicious. Every meal that we had was beautifully presented and fabulous. The staff lead by Mr.Nair are so welcoming and couldn't do enough for you."

"This is a little paradise in India where you can experience the beauty of nature, along with adventure in the wilderness and be exposed to the mysteries of the sea complemented with state of the art luxuries and mouth watering delicacies to make your stay complete! It is an all in one resort and from the moment you enter till you leave the island it is simply magical! So rejuvenating and relaxing, it leaves an ever lasting imprint on your mind! From sunrise to sunset each new day has much to offer for all ages!
I totally recommend a visit not only for the island experience but also for the pampering that the courteous staff so readily offer. Much thanks to Mr Nair- resort manager, Miss Roshna- activities incharge and Chef Senthil for adding their personal touch to everything and making each moment so memorable!
I definitely cannot end this review without mentioning the owners Mr Suresh Mathias and Mrs Sonali Mathias for making this trip so very special with their hospitality that broke all bounds. They have put their heart and soul into this resort to give their guests an unforgettable time, promising a totally blissful outing! This should definitely be on your travel list in India as one of the top most destinations to visit."

"We are very thankful to you and your team at Cintacor island for the wonderful stay at your resort.
Cintacor island Resort at Karwar was the last stop of our road trip before we returned to Mumbai. And I must agree we had indeed saved the best for the last.
Its an absolutely beautiful island resort, with tastefully designed cabins overlooking the sea. Its a delight waking up to the morning view of the sea from the beds in our rooms. The most beautiful infinity pool that one can laze around in.
The food options were very good and it was good that we could order in since we were travelling with young kids. The breakfast options though limited were good and sufficient.
The water sports at reasonable rates and enjoyable rides like jet ski and family tube ride not to forget the ride for dolphin sighting. A good nature walk conducted by the team gave us a view into the history of the island and the natural habitat.
Its a must stay at Cintacor island if one loves exotic locations to be one with the sea and nature.
Please keep up the good work and we look forward to visiting the island in the future too."

"A random friday noon decision turned into one of the best vacation for a group of 4 cousins. We are till date very grateful to the person who suggested cintacor island resort in karwar. From the minute we stepped on to the boat to sail to this island till we were back to the place where we had parked our car to travel back home, we had the time of our lives.
The owner of this place was a very courteous host. She not only helped us with our last minute booking but also gave us an upgrade to the sea view rooms. The view from our rooms was beautiful and waking up to this view for 2 days was worth every penny we paid.Mr Nair who was the manager was very helpful and the service of all the staffs who attended us was commendable.The infinity pool with the sea view was the best part of this place. Food was also outstanding and best part was we had the liberty to ask the chef to cook anything of our choice which wasnt even listed in the menu.How often do you get to do that!!
I would definitely recommend this place and would not think twice to visit again."

"Truly a treasure island with its gems, jewels and treasures. Gems of people taking care of your every need and making you feel pampered in everyway. Jewels of luxurious cabins to stay in with mouth watering food available at Nemo’s deck. And of course many little treasures strewn around the island like infinity pool, nature trails, a temple, clubhouse and a spa. I would definitely recommend this wonderful resort to nature loving people wanting to get off the grid for a while and reconnect with themselves and their surroundings - in a 5 star way."
