South Goa is famous for its beaches, museums, forts, pubs and cafes. A blend of tourist-friendly commercial areas and long stretches of natural beauty, South Goa is always worth a visit. If you’re looking to be closer to the action, why not consider setting up shop here? We’ve put together a short list of three lovely spots that you can consider as you plan your stay in South Goa.
Perched above a secluded cove near the Cabo de Rama village is a hideaway that will easily make it to your wish list. The Cape offers nine sea-facing cottage suites that you can choose from based on your budget. Not to worry––each cottage comes equipped with a private terrace and jacuzzi. Natural rock faces make part of the walls and the rooms are flooded with natural light and sea breeze. The decor is a blend of thatched-roof earthiness and chic contemporary fittings. These are combined with quiet privacy and stunning views that will ensure you never want to leave.
Some insider advice from Gaurav (@indiabrew) points us in the direction of this resort in Palolem. You’ll find here what many claim to be the essence of Goa; these are simple but beautiful cottages on the edge of the beach. Take in the complete vistas laid out in front of you and unwind. This boutique concept resort seeks to blend elements of Goan and European aesthetics, and does it with panache. Art Resort earns its name by showcasing the work of local artists and regularly hosting workshops, exhibitions and galas.
