A little more about Goa

Although renowned as a popular package holiday destination, as an old Portuguese colony on the west coast of India the attractions of Goa run deeper than the obvious. Visit beautiful opulent churches of the UNESCO World Heritage site of Old Goa, the colour of the local night markets, beautiful temples, and the contrasting interest of rural India a few hours’ drive into the hinterland of the Western Ghats. It is the beaches and relaxed atmosphere that bring travellers from afar to the Indian coastal region of Goa.

We have found Goa's hidden gems and have handpicked properties from private villas to family run hotels. Having personally visited properties our favourites include Coco Shambhala, Alila Diwa and The Leela, Goa. Goa is a magical place of wonder and mystery and offers a vast array to entice those travellers seeking culture and history as part of their Indian holiday.

When to go

October through to mid April is a great time to visit Goa.
