Why we love Santana Beach Resort
The grounds and gardens
Plush, well-kept gardens cover the hotel grounds, boasting towering palms and sunbathing lawns. In amongst the flora you’ll discover two inviting swimming pools and bars along with ample space to bask in the sunshine.
Santana Beach Resort has a wonderfully secluded feel, presenting a beautiful setting in which to relax and rejuvenate. As you wander the winding paths through the gardens, you’ll find fresh white and blue painted Portuguese-style accommodation blocks along the way.
The Portuguese style accommodation
Santana Beach Resort's accommodation blocks only consist of a total of 55 rooms, maintaining the secluded and intimate feel of its grounds and gardens. The charming rooms are defined by cheerful décor, all offering a balcony or terrace, and are equipped with a television, tea and coffee-making facilities, air-conditioning and the all important mini-bar.
Food glorious food
Santana Beach Resort offers its guests bed & breakfast, half board and full board bases in Olegario's restaurant, offering ample choice of scrumptious dishes made with local ingredients, including fresh coconut and aromatic spices, the finest seafood and plenty of tropical fruit.
The continental breakfast is a great way to start the day, complete with cereals, fresh fruit, breads and eggs cooked to order. For those looking for that something extra, there is also a breakfast à la carte menu.
Both lunch and dinner offer an array of dishes from fresh seafood to dishes from the barbecue alongside plenty of salads and sandwiches. During high season, the restaurant has themed nights with specialist menus and fantastic entertainment.
A stunning beach location
Beach lovers will be in their element at Santana Beach Resort, as Candolim’s long stretch of golden sand is just a minute's walk from the grounds. With lots of beach shacks along the beach, it makes for the perfect location to enjoy a spot of lunch with spectacular ocean views and do what we all love to do - people watch.
For the explorers
The lively village of Candolim itself has an array of shops and restaurants as well as souvenir shops to buy your holiday trinkets, so you’ll always have something to do should you wish to go out and explore. For those keen to discover a bit of Goan history, Fort Aguada is also close by on Sinquerim Beach and, only a 30-minute taxi ride away, Old Goa with its impressive temples or the colourful spice plantations of Ponda.
