Caravela Beach Resort

   Mid-Range Collection

South Goa  |  Varca


Located on the serene white sands of Varca, arguably one of the best stretches of beach in the state, the Caravela Beach Resort offers the perfect place for holiday-makers to relax and enjoy a second-to-none Goan beach break.


What we love

  • Morning strolls along the beach – take a wander along the soft white sands of Varca Beach and watch Goa lazily come to life.

  • The large swimming pool with swim-up bar


Good to know

  • It's just a short taxi ride to the nearest shops and restaurants.

  • The hotel is a popular choice in the UK market and early booking is recommended.


A memorable Goa escape

The well-established Caravela Beach Resort is surrounded by 24 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, filled with coconut palms and wide expanses of lawn, where guests can enjoy activities such as yoga, tennis and golf.

 There are countless ways to find relaxation, entertainment or indulgence during a stay here, whether it’s in the shape of soaking up the hot Indian sunshine on the sun terraces, rejuvenating in the Ayurvedic spa or hitting the nine-hole par-three golf course, you decide. 

The inviting swimming pool will no doubt be the centre of your stay. Complete with a swim-up bar and surrounded by swaying palm trees and sunloungers, it’s the perfect place to cool off after an afternoon stroll in the sun.

Feel at home

Surrounding the pool area, the comfortable and spacious guest rooms are elegantly designed, well equipped, and enjoy views over the grounds from a private balcony or terrace.

You’ll enjoy plenty of features and amenities in your room, including air-conditioning, a television, a minibar, safe and tea/coffee making facilities, adding to the comfort and convenience. 

Indulge and explore

The Caravela Beach Resort offers an extensive range of dining options, including four restaurants and three bars. We recommend dining à la carte on Pan-Asian cuisine at the Carnival Restaurant, and enjoying exotic cocktails on the beach at the Sunset Bar – you won’t be disappointed. You can also sample the fresh seafood that Goa is famous for at the Beach Shack, or alternatively, a wide variety of eateries and bars can be found in nearby Benaulim and Colva.
