Where to stay in Goa - Beautiful scenery

Exotic Beaches of Goa

Goa is commonly known as the perfect destination for relaxation and is a great place to end one of our India tours or holidays to India- and with good reason; golden beaches, fringed by swaying palm trees as far as the eye can see, dotted by dozens of stylish resorts. Goa is a small province in South West India that was occupied by the Portuguese for quite some time. Hidden among the tropical coconut palm trees you'll still see authentic churches and Portuguese is still spoken in some places.  

Goa has several beaches, each with its own character and atmosphere. In the far north you'll find quiet, unspoiled sandy beaches while the beaches around Calangute have a livelier atmosphere, with restaurants and shops along the shore. In the south you'll find a combination of both. Take a look at our information page to find more things to do in Goa. If you're thinking about where to stay in Goa, we've selected three small-scale resorts that we believe best reflect the local surroundings. They differ slightly in terms of comfort and style but each has cosy, authentic atmosphere. You'll most likely arrive in Goa by train or airplane, so we'll arrange a transfer from the station or airport to your resort for you. Not sure which option to go for?

Bamboo Cottage by the Lagoon

Along one of the quiet beaches of Goa, set in the middle of an emerald green lagoon, lies this low-key bamboo resort, our favourite spot in the area. You'll be staying in a modest, but stylishly decorated bamboo cottage overlooking a small stream that flows right through the resort. Beneath the shady palm trees you can lie back in your hammock and dream away as you listen to the soothing rush of the ocean. The bamboo cottages are basic, but they have comfortable beds and a proper bathroom with a shower and a toilet. The cool stream is an excellent place to go for a swim and the golden sandy beaches are steps away from your cottage door. In the evening head to one of the restaurants at nearby Palolem beach and watch the sun slowly set in the ocean. This is a lovely peaceful place, but not too far from the action.

Bohemian Beach Retreat

Around Ashwem in the northern tip of Goa, is where you'll find the picture-postcard tropical beaches. Endless beaches of soft golden sand, swaying palm trees and a wonderful laid-back atmosphere. The dome-shaped bungalows are spread out in a shady palm grove where the soft sand tickles your toes. In the evening you can open up the side and rooftop of the bungalow to let in the cool breeze in, and there's also a fan. Attached to the bungalow is a modern bathroom with a luxury rain shower with hot and cold water. Washing off the sand at the end of the day has never been more pleasant. The mosquito netting covering your bed like a canopy and the exotic purple tones of the room really add to romantic atmosphere. Start your day with a yoga lesson at the resort. Not necessarily spiritual, but very relaxing. A wonderful place to stay in Goa and spend a couple of days relaxing at the end of your India trip before boarding the plane back home.

Comfort Resort in Calangute

If, whilst deciding where to stay in Goa, you'd prefer to spend the last days of your trip in a small-scale resort with a little more comfort and charm, then go for our resort at Calangute Beach. This small boutique resort built in Portuguese style is brand new and set in the middle of a large tropical garden with a lovely pool. It's a peaceful sanctuary in the lively Calangute, and we enjoyed being able to escape the hustle and bustle and relax back at the quiet resort with a good book and a cool drink. The rooms are tastefully decorated with four-poster beds and colonial furniture, there's air-conditioning and a balcony overlooking the lush gardens or the pool. From the resort it's less than 10 minutes walk to the nearest beach, one of the prettiest in Goa and great for all kinds of water sports.
