Situated a 30-minute drive from Baga beach, The Postcard Moira offers a tranquil retreat from Goa’s coastline. Take a morning dip in the outside swimming pool before enjoying a traditional massage in the Ayurvedic spa, listening to the sound of birdsong as you allow yourself to completely unwind.
It won’t take long for you to fall in love with Moira. Set back from the typical tourist trail, this quaint village is perfect if you’re looking for a little more peace and quiet on your Goa holiday. Take a wander amongst the brightly hued houses and lush banana plantations that the village has become known for, stopping to shake hands with the friendly, smiling locals who call this neighbourhood home.
Unique in Style
The hotel itself deserves much of your time. The 214-year-old ancestral home has been restored and decorated with a mix of traditional colonial furnishings and white-washed, modern touches. Wooden floors and four-poster beds contrast beautifully against the hotel’s choice of statement lamps and stylish, white sofas.
Plus, with only nine rooms in the whole hotel, you can rest assured you’ll get a good night’s sleep. Wake up to the sunlight filtering through your window or use the blackout curtains to catch up on some sleep.
Enjoy locally grown food
Moira’s roots as an agricultural village resonate through the hotel’s dining experience. Trace your food’s journey to your plate at the on-site restaurant, which prides itself on only using local ingredients, sourced from the neighbouring households.
Be sure to try Solachi Kadi, a tasty coconut-based curry, and Fish Uddamethi which is made with fresh mackerel.
