If you're looking for a holiday to Goa that involves beautiful beaches, then we've got just the ticket.

Do your holiday dreams include sweeping sands, glistening waters and wonderfully warm sunshine? If so, then there’s no doubt that Goa is an ideal choice for a beach break. In order to try and make your dreams a reality, here’s a selection of The Goa Experience’s favourite beachfront hotels, from our value collection right through to our luxury options - as who are we to deny anyone a glorious beach break under the Goan sun? 


Chalston Beach Resort, Calangute – The Value Collection 

An exclusive resort to The Goa Experience, Chalston Beach Resort offers guests colourful and secluded gardens, a tranquil atmosphere and a fantastic location, right on the golden sands of Calangute Beach. Relax and top up your tan, partake in some of the water sports on offer, or explore the numerous bright wooden beach shacks which accentuate the shoreline. This wide stretch of beach is popular with domestic and international tourists, and a great location for families. 


Sonesta Inns, Candolim – The Mid-Range Collection 

Offering the best of both worlds, Sonesta Inns is a welcoming quiet oasis set in the lively town of Candolim. Colourful gardens and coconut palms give the hotel a very secluded feel, and an inviting pool awaits, ideal for a refreshing dip. Although not directly on the beach front, a very short walk of a couple of minutes will reveal a beach lover’s paradise. Sun loungers rest on soft golden sand and you’ll discover Aguada Fort standing proudly at the southern end of this magnificent and popular beach.

Taj Exotica, Benaulim – The Luxury Collection

With only a beautiful plush garden between you and the glorious white sands of Benaulim Beach, if you’re looking for an exotic, romantic and luxurious holiday, then the Taj Exotica is ideal. The hotel boasts fabulous facilities including yoga classes and a 9-hole putting green, along with ample restaurants and bars. However, if you’re a real sun worshipper, enjoy a bit of snorkelling or really love fresh seafood, then hit Benaulim Beach to indulge in all your favourite holiday pastimes.


The Leela, Mobor – The Luxury Collection

For the ultimate in luxury beachfront holidays, there’s nothing quite like The Leela. A tranquil oasis with meandering lagoons and beautiful gardens, if you can bring yourself to leave the hotel grounds, you’re just a stone’s throw away from quiet Mobor Beach. A peaceful setting where you can spend your days soaking up the warm Goan sun, then head to one of the colourful beach shacks for an inviting refreshment and some authentic Goan cuisine. You can also choose to take a walk along the peninsular which will eventually bring you out to the mouth of the Sal River.
