Where manicured lawns and an enticing pool area meet dotted coconut palms, you can easily pass a lazy day at Country Inn & Suites, soaking up the Indian sunshine. Perhaps you’d like to sip a refreshing drink on the terrace, or lounge under the shade of a palm with a good book for company; the choice is yours.
Rooms are all well equipped, we base our prices on superior rooms which overlook the interior gardens. You also have the option to upgrade to the deluxe pool view rooms at Country Inn & Suites, both categories are arranged in three-storey blocks around the tropical courtyard garden, and each are spacious, decorated using neutral tones. Standard rooms are also available, which are slightly smaller and instead look out across Candolim village.
The hotel’s restaurant, Mosaic, presents a fantastic opportunity to experience Goan cuisine and international favourites, although the hotel’s location in the heart of Candolim means you can also take advantage of the plentiful restaurants and bars on offer in the village. You’re also perfectly placed to test your bartering skills in the crafts stalls and souvenir shops.
Endless sands and colourful shacks
Country Inn & Suites are also only a 700m stroll through the village to the sweeping, golden sands of Candolim Beach, where not only will you find an endless stretch of inviting coastline, but also Goa’s famous beach shacks, lining the coast backed by dense coconut groves.
