A Symphony of Sights, Sounds & Serenity

A boat remains at the Karwar jetty waiting to transport you to the shores of Cintacor. With the sea foam spraying on your face and the wind running through your hair, this exhilarating ride is sure to wake you up to the exciting holiday ahead.

At every turn in Cintacor, there’s a breathtaking sight for you to behold — from the pristine waters to the lush greeneries to the exotic birds and animals.
The cabins that house you offer an uninterrupted view of the sea juxtaposed with the island's greenery, making every waking moment feel surreal.
Yet a traveller’s most preferred spot is the vast, gorgeous infinity pool that blends into the Arabian Sea. In fact, one of Cintacor’s most sought-out sights is the view from the pool at sunset, when the sea change colours as the sun bleeds its crimson-yellow shades into the sapphire waters.

For The Love Of Nature

Cintacor is home to a diverse range of flora & fauna, favoured by all who enjoy exploring the island’s nature trail. An expert naturalist accompanies you through the forests, as you spot rare butterflies, majestic eagles, brilliant dolphins, adorable turtles and exotic orchids. A walk on the island will open your eyes to its hidden wonders like a 300 million-year-old creek, the enchanting woods, the temple that is the main site of a yearly pilgrimage, an old lighthouse that has been around since the colonial era and so much more. With over eighty per cent of the 30-acre private island covered in forests, one can’t help but slow down and connect with nature, filling the soul with peace and wonder.

Experiencing such a majestic wonder makes one feel as if they have been transported to a time at the beginning of the universe. At this moment, the world comes to a standstill. Each day there is a new view to cherish, a new story to hear, and a new discovery to make; there are endless wonders waiting to charm you on this stunning island.
