Best areas in Goa for luxury hotels

Want to pamper yourself in paradise? Then you just need to pick one of the luxury hotels in Goa, which offer lavish lodgings a stone’s throw from the lapping waters of the Arabian Sea. There are more options here than you could want, and one of the big decisions is whether you stay in North Goa or South Goa. The former has busy hotel hotspots like Calangute and Anjuna, while down in South Goa you can stay in areas like Cansaulim and Benaulim. The city of Panaji is another great option.

Top luxury hotels in Goa

Novotel Goa Shrem exudes sophistication in every room. Style-conscious visitors will love the gleaming, polished wood floors of the guestrooms, while everyone will be pleased by duplex suites with balconies overlooking the seascape. DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Goa – Arpora – Baga offers perks like a shuttle service to Baga Beach, while the warm-toned rooms will make you feel regal during your stay. Vivanta by Taj – Holiday Village, Goa features a restaurant by the sea, and a special “sunset deck” with flaming torches where you can have the most romantic dinner imaginable.

Where to find the best fine dining in Goa

If you’re in the mood for a formal evening of fine dining, the big luxury hotels of Goa are the places to be. Here, you can sample the traditional Portuguese-Indian fusion cuisine of the region, from coconut-rich seafood curries to tangy prawn balchao, in opulent surroundings. You should also venture to historic cities like Panaji, where family-run restaurants serve dishes like richly spiced vindaloo and crispy crab masala fry, that will awaken and inspire your senses.

The most unique things to do in Goa

Goa has a reputation as a rather raucous party place, but you can also enjoy a serene, deliciously languid beach holiday here. Head for hidden gems like Mandrem Beach, where glorious sunsets drape the wide expanse of sand in radiant colors – there’s no better place to practice yoga. Speaking of which, you can find some of the world’s best yoga and reiki teachers here, so be sure to sign up for one of the classes to really feel rejuvenated. To really make the most of the sea, you’ll want to get your snorkels on. Or perhaps you’re daring enough to go on a scuba diving course, and explore the underwater shipwrecks and darting sea life. Then, take to the skies with a helicopter ride to get a whole new perspective on hotspots like Colva and Benaulim.

Best ways to get around Goa

This may be a small state, but the key word here is “state”. Goa’s attractions are spread out across a fair distance, so – unless you fully intend on staying put at one beach location – the best way to make the most of your visit is to hire your own car, or if you really want to travel in style, book a chauffeur driven vehicle. Then you can roam from North to South Goa and back again, at your leisure. There are also taxis available, while some hotels offer their own shuttle services to various locations.
