A friendly, family-run hotel just a five-minute stroll from the golden sands of Calangute Beach, Casa de Goa is a great choice for couples hoping to enjoy many of North Goa’s highlights. Taking its influence from Goa’s Portuguese heritage, the property itself is presented as a beautiful colonial mansion, using traditional colours along with terracotta tiles and white window and door accents.
The guest rooms at Casa de Goa utilise dark wood furniture, perfectly complementing the fresh, neutral décor. Each room has its own private terrace or balcony, with the deluxe rooms located in the main hotel building, and the suites and villas in a separate area just across a small road. Upgrading to the suites and villas provides guests with access to another pool, for those looking for a more exclusive escape as well as an option to enjoy á la carte breakfast on their balcony or terrace.
Staying amid the hustle and bustle of the town provides many opportunities to explore the variety of restaurants and bars on your doorstep, along with the string of colourful beach shacks that line the coast. If, however, you prefer to spend time within your hotel grounds, after a fulfilling breakfast at the property’s restaurant, head to the main pool, where you can relax on a sunlounger and soak up the sunshine.
