We established Ciarans in 1998. It had a very humble beginning (100 Rs per a hut..). The crescent-shaped bay of Palolem Beach is lined with swaying coconut palms. In the heart of this idyllic location lies Ciaran’s, a handful of boutique beach cottages set around lush green tropical gardens.
We have over 30 full-time staff, many who have been with us since day one. We are a Goan company, owned and managed by locals. So if there’s anything you’d like to know about Goa, we are the people to ask!
Every light bulb at Ciaran’s is energy saving. And we offer free water refills too, to cut back on plastic waste. We make our cottages from coir, that’s material from the husk of the coconut. It’s great because coconut is a very sustainable wood and, as you’ll see, it’s in plentiful supply.
