A zen-like appeal…
Taking its influence from Indonesian architecture, guests will discover high-beamed wooden ceilings, open-air courtyards and water features, giving this hotel a serene, zen-like ambience. This unique charm is even further enhanced by Alila Diwa’s well-manicured gardens filled with bamboo, palms and flowering frangipani trees.
Alila Diwa’s striking infinity pool sits in an elevated position overlooking lush paddy fields, where guests can relax and unwind on the sun terraces listening to the gentle sound of swaying palms, or cool off from the hot Indian sun on one of the pool’s sunken loungers. Alternatively, why not head down to Majorda Beach to sink your feet into the golden sand?
Spread over two buildings, the hotel’s spacious rooms are elegantly decorated in a minimalistic style, with soft neutral fabrics and elegant lattice shutters. Large freestanding bath tubs are the real focal point here, really adding to the sense of grandeur that Alila Diwa exudes.
A great choice for food lovers, an extensive range of fine dining experiences are offered at this hotel, one highlight being the spice studio, where you’ll discover some authentic Goan cuisine and heritage Indian dishes. You can also let the hotel’s award-winning chef take you on a journey of the senses at the Alila cookery masterclass, where you’ll learn to cook Goan specialities using traditional techniques.
