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
Good to know
A memorable Goa escape
Formerly known as the Ramada Caravela, this well-established hotel 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 9-hole Par 3 golf course, you decide.
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 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.
Official local hotel rating: 5 star
Our Expert Opinion
"Although it may be hard to tear yourself away from the Caravela, there is so much to explore nearby. Take a drive to the idyllic deserted sands of Cola Beach or discover the famous makeshift beach shacks at Palolem. "
