Goa holidays from £689pp
We're delighted to be able to offer seven-night holidays to Goa from as little as £689pp from November 2018, which still includes your flights, in-flight meals, 20kg luggage, airport transfers and breakfast. For this price, you'll get to relax along the gorgeous sands of South Goa's laid-back beaches, and stay at Sao Domingo's; a simple, family-run hotel which has a good-size pool and restaurant, plus wonderfully friendly staff.

Here's just a couple of our favourites to help paint a picture of just some of what you can expect...
Calangute Beach, North Goa

Anjuna Beach, North Goa

Don't hold back on new and exciting experiences
One of the reasons we fell in love with Goa was that there's so much to do beyond the beach. It's a fantastic choice for adventure seekers, which is why we offer a variety of different excursions and tours for the outdoors and culture lovers. Perhaps you'd like to explore wildlife, or even stay on a traditional Goan houseboat? Maybe you'd like to see what Old Goa has to offer, or head further afield to the incredible archaeological site of Hampi? The choice is entirely yours.

For something a little luxurious...
We love the Taj Exotica Resort & Spa when it comes to a luxury Goa holiday. If the palatial mansion building, palm-dotted lawns and beachfront location weren't already enough, the large pool, Jiva Spa, four restaurants, golfing facilities, tennis courts and daily yoga sessions are sure to clinch it. Find out more about the Taj Exotica here.
For a fantastic budget getaway...
Santana Beach Resort continues to be one of our customers' absolute favourites. Its two pools and tropical gardens are ideal for relaxing within secluded surroundings, and it's just a short stroll to Candolim Beach where you'll find an endless expanse of golden sand and plenty of beach shacks to sample. A touch of Goan authenticity can be found in the accommodation, set in Portuguese-style blocks, dotted throughout the grounds. Find out more about Santana Beach Resort here.
For a peaceful escape not far from the action...
Sonesta Inns can be best described as a tranquil oasis in an ideal position, as guests are just a short walk from the the bustling village of Candolim (and its golden beach), yet can enjoy the swaying palms and chirping of birds within the hotel grounds. The shapely pool is surrounded by sunloungers, perfect for soaking up the hot Indian sunshine, and there's a children's pool and play area to keep the little ones entertained. What more could you wish for? Discover Sonesta Inns here.
