1. Alila Diwa, South Goa – 5* Deluxe, The Luxury Collection
With exquisite views of verdant rice paddies and coconut groves stretching out into the distance, the Alila Diwa provides a luxurious base for an exotic, paradisiacal holiday. Relaxing on the sunbeds in the infinity pool is the perfect pastime, where you can watch majestic water buffalo and all manner of birdlife including wild peacocks exploring the fields before you. There’s a real air of elegance at the Alila Diwa, and to enhance the hotel’s zen-like feel, there’s a spa as well as yoga sessions available, along with cooking classes and a ‘dine in the dark’ event, where your senses come alive in the hotel’s Spice Studio. Seven different room types are available to choose from, as well as all board options, so no matter your preference, The Alila Diwa can accommodate.
2. Panjim Inn, Central Goa - The Unique Collection
Ideal for a few nights to explore a different side of Goa, Panjim Inn is set in the heart of Fontainhas, in Panjim’s rather fascinating Latin Quarter. Perfect for those looking for a big helping of culture during their holiday, at Panjim Inn you can enjoy a heritage setting where at every twist and turn you’re met with intriguing period antiques. It’s a great place for foodies, as the cuisine here is outstanding, and all kinds of Goan specialities are on offer, including fish curry and bebinka cake. Exploring the local area is also highly recommended, as you’ll discover the famous Immaculate Conception Church, as well as an array of multi coloured heritage houses and white-washed church buildings along the meandering streets.
3. Fortune Select Regina, Candolim - The Mid-Range Collection
With beautiful views over the Shantadurga temple and the forest beyond, Fortune Select Regina is ideally placed to enjoy the sights and sounds of Candolim, as well as the beach. A newly built hotel, you can enjoy your holiday relaxing by the pool or on the sun terraces, taking in the wonderful views of Hindu architecture and rice paddies, or spend an afternoon in the hotel’s spa. A shuttle service operates regularly to the beach, or if you prefer you can take a short walk through Candolim to the coast. Themed evening entertainment means there’s plenty to do keep you occupied in the evening, or alternatively, head out and explore the atmosphere that Candolim town has to offer.
4. Caravela Beach Resort, Varca - The Mid-Range Collection
Located in Varca along some of the whitest sands in the state, Ramada Caravela Beach Resort provides the perfect holiday for not only beach lovers, but also those who love to keep active. As tempting as a day at the beach may be, the hotel also offers a 9-hole golf course, tennis courts, yoga classes, an Ayurvedic spa and a gym. Beautiful landscaped gardens guide you down to the coastline, or within the hotel grounds there’s a rather inviting secluded pool area where you can swim to the bar to enjoy a cocktail or two.
