Treat yourself to a little luxury at these wonderfully luxurious Goa hotels. Including some of the best hotels in Goa, all guaranteed to make your holiday in India's sunshine state unforgettable.

Luxury Hotels in Goa


The Leela

The most luxurious hotel in Goa, The Leela, is a tranquil oasis set in 75 acres of immaculate grounds with water lily-filled lagoons, meandering through lush green gardens and by a soft white sand beach that is second to none.

Also home to a spa, 12-hole golf course and yoga classes, plus tennis, badminton and croquet facilities, there’s certainly something to satisfy everyone’s favourite past time. What’s more, there are six different restaurants and bars to choose from, offering a mix of traditional Goan cuisine, along with international delights. We think it’s safe to say that this hotel is an ideal sanctuary where you can achieve total relaxation, re-instate your Zen and completely rejuvenate whilst soaking up the warm Goan sun.

Katie Mole, Product Manager at Goa Experience says: I just love the rooms overlooking the lagoons, especially at dusk when the Indian sunset reflects in the water, it’s just dreamy.”


Taj Exotica Resort & Spa

This luxurious, palatial hotel has somewhat of a colonial style in terms of its architecture and design; grand polished marble floors, beamed wooden ceilings and antiques, which all add to the hotel's character and charm.

A favourite with the discerning British tourist, there’s not much that this hotel doesn’t provide. From a spa and fitness centre, through to a putting green, archery, children’s activity centre and tennis courts you’ll have plenty to enjoy whilst visitng the Taj Exotica. The hotel’s bedrooms boast beautiful décor, harmoniously blending Goan and Portuguese influences, twinned with wonderful views across the green gardens.


ITC Grand Goa

Set in 45 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, shimmering lagoons and meandering waterways, the ITC Grand Goa is one of Goa’s finest hotels.

Imagine lying under the Goan sun, on a white sand beach lined with coconut palms, with a cool, inviting turquoise blue ocean as far as the eye can see... With its private beach and luxury facilities, this is exactly what the ITC Grand Goa is all about.

Start your day with a relaxing yoga session, then move on to their award winning Sereno Spa, then perhaps some sunbathing, followed by a cooking master class in the evening? This hotel exudes calm and relaxation, whilst keeping a wonderful air of understated elegance and Goan charm. 


Alila Diwa Goa

With a spectacular setting hidden amongst coconut groves and surrounded by rice paddies, the Alila Diwa exudes luxury, offering guests an ultimate Goan experience. 

The hotel itself depicts a magnificent Balinese style, and the elevated infinity pool makes the most of the fantastic panoramic views. The Alila Diwa has ample facilities with something for everyone, from a spa and yoga sessions through to cookery courses, a kids' club and even a small cinema. 

For those looking for the ultimate in luxury experiences, upgrade to the Diwa Club. With its own private hideaway, exclusive use of a second pool and Jacuzzi and a fine dining bistro, you're sure to find yourself completely relaxed.
