A peaceful setting for a comfortable holiday
Offering simply-furnished yet attractive accommodation for both couples and families alike, Marinha Dourada’s guest rooms are spread around the hotel’s well-kept grounds, with many enjoying views over the lakes or the two swimming pools. Meandering pathways lead from the rooms to the scenic lakes, where spectacular sunsets can be enjoyed.
Exploring the local area
Getting out and about is easy too, with a 10-minute taxi ride taking you to the bustling beach resorts of Calangute or Baga, where you can enjoy all the rewards of the golden sands and colourful beach shacks.
