Tucked away in a quiet corner of Dolphin Bay, Ahilya by the Sea presents a serene and private escape, promising relaxation and indulgence amid the beauty of Goa.


What we love

  • The secluded setting away from the hustle and bustle of the nearby tourist resorts, with excellent personalised service and cuisine.


Good to know

  • Dolphin Bay is a popular landing site for local fishermen bringing in their catch of the day. It's quite mesmerising watching the colourful boats come in after their night at sea.


A taste of luxury and authenticity

Enjoying a privileged position in an attractive bay, where the Mandovi River meets the Arabian Sea, Ahilya by the Sea is defined by its authentic and boutique luxury; effortlessly encapsulating the vibes of Goa itself.

The property’s 10 tastefully decorated and welcoming rooms are spread across three independent villas and surrounded by lovingly landscaped gardens filled with exotic plants and flowers.

 There are two pools on site - the Sunrise infinity pool is perfect for a few morning laps or to simply lounge by in the afternoon, whilst the Sunset plunge pool is ideal for a leisurely dip in the shade of coconut palms, surrounded by pink and white frangipani trees.

Unique character and quality

The rooms themselves have been beautifully decorated using the owner’s personal collection of art and sculptures, handpicked from her many travels around the world. They give the essence of staying in a much-loved family home, surrounded by understated elegance but still enjoying the finer things in life.

Ahilya by the Sea is also known for its excellent cuisine. On offer is an à la carte menu with elements of Goan, Italian and French cuisines and a daily 'prix-fixe' menu which highlights the fresh catch of the day. They use only the freshest ingredients from local markets, and dining is al fresco at a new spot every night.
