1. The grounds and gardens

The lush well-kept gardens of the hotel cover the magnificent grounds, providing a tropical haven for its guests. Towering palm trees rustle quietly in the gentle sea breeze, making sunbathing beneath the palms glorious! The gardens provide a secluded feel for those who stay, wandering the manicured paths through verdant greenery is a wonderful bonus of this hotel.

2. The delicious food

Bed and Breakfast, Half Board and Full Board are all available at Santana Beach Resort. Olegario’s Restaurant offers plenty of choice when it comes to meals. Delight in the tastes and aromas of the local dishes produced in the kitchen, all made with local ingredients and wonderfully aromatic spices, synonymous with Goa. Try fresh seafood dishes from the barbeque for lunch, a great way to spend a long, lazy afternoon. In the height of the season, guests can enjoy themed nights at the restaurant too.

Begin your day with a hearty continental breakfast, for those who wish to start their day with the à la carte menu, this can also be done. 

For those who are looking to venture out of the hotel to eat, Calamari Restaurant is a very popular eatery right on the beachfront at Santana specialising in seafood dishes. This recommendation comes from first-hand knowledge from our product team who have eaten in the Calamari themselves, and enjoyed the dishes on offer!

3. The magnificent beach location

If you’re a beach lover, look no further than this hotel, you really will be spoilt! On Candolim’s endless stretch of beach, golden sands meet warm waters. There are plenty of spots to relax, soak up the Goan sun and enjoy refreshments at one of the many beach shacks. 

4. Proximity to Candolim

If you are looking to explore the local area you will not be disappointed by Candolim. This lively village is packed with shops and restaurants to peruse for souvenirs and delicious snacks. Fort Aquada is close by on Sinquerim Beach, this is one for the history fans. Just a 30-minute taxi ride from the hotel you will be greeted with impressive temples, perfect to spend the morning meandering through. For added excitement, the Ponda spice plantation is located here too! Find out more about getting a guide in North Goa here.

Each room is adorned with cheerful colours and a balcony or terrace, it is a haven after a relaxing day on the beach or sightseeing!
