GREAT FOR

    This 5 bedroom private pool villa is just the place for a group of 10 people who want a quiet holiday in Goa, away from the crowded areas. It’s great for those who enjoy nature and are looking for a tranquil setting. With another two 3 bedroom villas on the estate, the place doubles up as a great venue for intimate celebrations, events and even spiritual retreats.

What we love

  • In an unsullied locale, atop a hill overlooking the river, where much of the estate remains untouched, a picturesque five bedroom villa unveils. The villa has been built in an imaginative architectural style where every space has outdoor access to the greens. An aerial view will make one wonder where the rooms and living spaces are - it’s all earthy and close to nature yet completely geared for 21st century living.
  • Ascend the curved laterite stairs into a beautiful long porch that overlooks the manicured garden, forested hills and the river below - a serene place to unwind and enjoy the balmy air of nature. With several cosy sitting areas and an al fresco dining set up, there’s a warm space for every mood. The tiled roof, rounded pillars and vintage chandeliers may just take you back in time to the grand Portuguese era.
  • The edge of the estate harbours the gorgeous garden pool where you can not only immerse yourself in the cool waters but also the dramatic views of the landscape beyond. For as far as the eyes can see, there won’t be another human soul in sight! Great place to read, take a nap or kick back with a drink while on one of the comfortable sun beds.
  • Each of the five bedrooms unfold as you walk along the pillared verandah that faces the courtyard garden. The earthy hues, warm lighting and curtains dancing to the song of the wind, create an ambiance that’s calm and relaxing. Some rooms have old school desks where you can pen down your thoughts. The earthy style extends onto the ensuite bathrooms. We loved the bamboo ladders as towel racks, brass twin sinks, the naturally carved tubs and shower areas and the use of cane bins - little ways to show sensitivity to the ecological environment.

What to know

  • The cook is no gourmet chef but does scrumptious local Goan preparations and select international fare. We recommend feasting on the coastal sea-food favourites flavoured with local spices and served with a side of rice or freshly baked bread - a Portuguese legacy handed over to the Goans. There’s no standard menu at the villa - chat with the chef to discuss your preferences, give him a bit of a free hand and relish well made dishes every meal!
  • The lounge is a contemporary one with whispers of antiquity. Warm hues of sunset colours dress the walls while shuttered doors lead out. The living room makes for a great place for all to gather and share quality time. For those who’d like some quiet time alone, interesting coffee table books are available to read.
  • The au naturel garden front exhibits red-ochre may-flowers and shady trees that beckon you to spread out a sheet and lie down amidst swaying palms whilst listening to the sweet call of whistling birds. The estate is also home to scores of wild peacocks - a visual treat often seen strutting around in all magnificence.
  • With two other three bedroom villas on the estate, this place makes for a perfect venue for intimate celebrations and events, where easily about 25 people can stay while around 250 or so can be hosted! Couples have tied the knot here, while many others have celebrated milestone birthdays and anniversaries in the company of their loved ones. The serenity of the place also makes it a venue of choice for spiritual and yoga retreats, while its secluded and gorgeous location has often brought film makers to shoot here.

Anjuna Flea Market

On Wednesdays from 8am to 7pm

Months: October to May

The market started in the 1970s when the hippies who had descended on the land of Goa from the Western world wished to stay longer but couldn’t afford to do so. They began bartering and then eventually selling their goodies in exchange of money and thus began the famous Anjuna Flea Market.

Saunter in looking for a bargain but walk out with an experience gained. Get past the local vendors, spot the artist and designer shops and find that bargain - pixie shoes, cosmic jewelry, red leather jackets, abstract art or even miniature stringed instruments! Haggle hard and be prepared for the onslaught! The market is a visual spectacle that must not be missed!
