Swept in Greenery

Goa offers a one-of-a-kind mix of unspoiled nature and a commingling of cultures.
Goa’s lanes still hark back to its colonial past, evident in the exquisite architecture, and in the soulful strains of Portuguese fado music that still carry on the sea breeze. Its white sand beaches are allures all their own and include the seemingly endless Gonsua Beach, just 300 meters away from the resort—and easily accessible, thanks to our complimentary, daily beach shuttle service.
