Goa offers a wide range of accommodation choices for travelers, with some of the most extensive collection of hostels for backpackers and quaint homestays for budget travelers who want to experience a slice of Goan life. Ranging from utterly decadent in terms of luxury to extremely dedicate to concerns like ecology and art, Goan resorts and hotels offer an utterly immersive experience of refinement and taste.
Here, we will be focusing on south Goa hotels and resorts, which are quite different from the popular tourist beaches and resorts in the north, specifically starting right from the Dabolim airport, which is located approximately at the centre of the state. The southern part of Goa, often ignored by weekend tourists, is actually extremely rewarding in itself – with white sandy beaches, cozy lagoons and some of the best food and drink options that the state has to offer. All the resorts mentioned in this list are either a one or two minute walk away from the beach, or in many cases, come with a slice of the beach in their backyard. Coupled with serene natural beauty and great service, these resorts and hotels are some of the best that Goa has to offer.
Goan Village Goa
Located near to the Candolim Goan Village is perhaps the popularluxury resortknown for its affordable lavish services and amenities. The resort has deluxe accommodation in the form of air conditioned cottages to beat the Goan summer heat, which are spread across the premises lined with palm trees. The policy is to respect the patron’s personal space, and the architecture of the resort and the staff service reflect this through and through. Want to head to the beach? Just follow the narrow creek that cuts through the resort and soon the foliage will clear away and the sea will be right in front of you. Also enjoy your taste buds at restaurant and bar – offering great food and live music on the beach and a perfect place to sip wine any time of the year.
