    I am interested in booking the Zuri White Sands Goa Resort & Casino, it is one of the luxury resorts in Goa and provides a much luxurious stay.

    We will be a group of people consisting of myself and my husband, with another couple with their kids who are aged ten years and twelve years old. There are a few questions which I have regarding the resort and its services which I would be grateful for to be answered.

    1. Are there any activities which are available for kids in the resort?

    2. Is there a buffet dinner available?

    3. What is the famous hi-tea about?

    4. How far is the beach from the resort?

    5. What are the timings for the casino in the resort?

    Hello, @Mandira! Welcome to the forum!

    The Zuri White Sands Goa Resort & Casino is a posh resort located about 10 minutes away from the Varca Beach. It is also just 10 kms from the Fatorda Stadium. The resort is set on about 38 acres of land, with spacious lawns and a large swimming pool. It is also one of the resorts in Goa with a casino in its premises. The design of the whole property is old colonial, which adds to its charm and allure. There are about 154 appointed rooms and 4 suites in the property.

    The resort has a kid's room in which you can leave your kids and they do various activities with the attendants. There are various toys in the room which the kids can play with. Children older than three years old can stay unaccompanied in the room. For children younger than three years old, they would need a guardian. Activities include: drawing, watching movies and painting.

    Aside from this, the resort also hosts activities like sand castle making, flower making and cooking for the kids. The swimming pool has an area for kids, as the depth is shallow enough for them to be safe in it. It's also large enough to accommodate as many people at one time.

    Yes, some of their restaurants offer dinner buffets. They have five restaurants in total, but these are the ones offering a dinner buffet:
    • Waterfall Cafe - This restaurant offers buffet spreads for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The varieties in the buffet are quite extensive as well. During Saturdays, they have a Goan-themed buffet with delicious and authentic Goan dishes with live music at the background. There's a variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes you can choose from. There's also some Jain dishes served everyday.
    • Sake - This is their Orienta/Asian/Japanese restaurant. It's only open during dinner time and serves mostly Asian dishes. The spread isn't that extensive but it has some nice varieties of Japanese/Asian dishes. They have sushi, teppanyaki and Thai curries.

    I don't know what this is about. All I know is that the room comes with a tea tray and tea/coffee making facilities. They also offer Masala tea on the restaurant.

    The Varca Beach is just a 10-minute walk away from the Zuri White Sands Goa Resort and Casino. Other nearby beaches are the following:
    • Carmona Beach - This is about 4.4 kms from the resort or about 12 minutes of driving time.
    • Betalbatim Beach - This is about 11 kms from the resort or about 25 minutes of driving time.
    • Cavelossim Beach - This is about 9 kms from the resort or about 20 minutes of driving time.
    • Colva Beach - This is about 10 kms from the resort or about 21 minutes of driving time.
    • Mobor Beach - This is about 11 kms from the resort or about 25 minutes of driving time.
    The Zuri White Sands Goa Resort and Casino has a casino that is open 24/7. There's an entry fee of Rs. 1,000 per person though.

    I hope this helps.
