Escape the hustle and bustle of Goa’s coastline at this beautifully restored ancestral home, nestled in the sleepy village of Moira.
What we love
The sense of tranquillity that drifts throughout the whole hotel. With only nine rooms, you’re guaranteed plenty of peace and quiet!
Although off the beaten track, you’re not too far from the coast should you fancy a livelier day out.
Good to know
The on-site restaurant only uses locally sourced ingredients, and what they create is delicious! All food is fresh and made to order so you can eat at any time.
You can stay here as part of a multi-centre Goa holiday, giving you the chance to see another side of India’s sunshine state.
Get away from it all
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.
