Four Star Goa hotels

Most popular areas in Goa for 4-star hotels

If you’re looking for the perfect holiday in Goa, chances are you’ll want to be as close to its sweeping beaches as possible. There are plenty of 4-star hotels offering comfortable, elegant accommodation within strolling distance of those famous sands. If South Goa is your area of choice, you could perhaps bed down near Cansaulim Beach, or the buzzing resort area of Colva. Alternatively, head to North Goa for 4-star hotels near Calangute Beach, which is ideal for anyone wanting to mingle and party.

Top 4-star hotels in Goa

Country Inn & Suites by Carlson Goa Candolim is located within easy traveling distance of hotspots like Candolim and Baga, and the hotel itself is pretty pleasing as well. You can pamper yourself in the spa, then relax in your spacious guestroom with candlelit room service for 2. Holiday Inn Resort Goa sits along Mobor Beach in South Goa, with direct access to the sands, and a spa offering ayurvedic therapies. Then there’s Ocean Palms Goa, which is conveniently close to Calangute Beach and offers guestrooms with pool views and on-site spa treatments.

Where to find the best restaurants in Goa

Goa is a foodie paradise, thanks to its long standing fusion of European and Indian influences. Brave enough to handle the spice? Then tuck into traditional vindaloo in a restaurant in Panaji. And you certainly should delve into the classic coconut-rich fish curries that are known the world over. Both North and South Goa have a profusion of places to eat, so it’s just a matter of a little research beforehand, or simply wandering popular areas like Candolim and seeing what looks good.

The most popular things to do in Goa

Goa’s epic stretches of beaches are legendary, and whether you want to show off your windsurfing and jet skiing skills, or just want to lie back on the sand and soak up the sun, there’s a beach to suit everyone. Calangute’s seafront is famous – or perhaps notorious – for its energy and bustle, while Candolim Beach is a serene space to wander, take in the landscape, and watch local fisherman at work. Yoga, reiki, and reflexology classes are another big draw in Goa – reflecting its heritage as a hippy and New Age hotspot. There’s also the colonial history to immerse yourself in – one must-see landmark is Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception Church in Panaji, a Baroque throwback to the Portuguese era, with a bright icing-white façade and eye-catchingly crisscrossing staircases. The town of Margao is another spot for exploring chapels and colonial mansions.

Best ways to get around Goa

Yes, there are regular taxis in Goa, but if you’re feeling adventurous, then hop on behind one of the “pilots” who ride the local motorcycle taxis. Another traditional way of getting around is using one of the autorickshaws, while regular buses make it fairly easy to get around the main attractions in this small state. That said, you’ll probably want to hire your own car if you want to go between North and South Goa at your leisure, and also fancy looking inland, beyond the immediate pull of the beaches.
