BE A BIG SPENDER
Words: SONIA NAZARETH
We’ve lined up great options for when you’ve had your fill of Goa’s party scene and all you want to do is revel in luxurious properties.
The move from the beachside bustle of Calangute to the Zen-like tranquillity of Summertime is as sudden as it is welcome. This distinctly private Balinese-style villa offers generously-sized rooms, ensconced within prolific plant and bird life, and with its own waterfall – all tributes to Goa’s pretty countryside. The infinity pool and tastefully-curated common areas will have aficionados of the good life singing with approval. Rent the owners’ luxury yacht and set off on an off-the-beaten-track adventure in pursuit of dolphins and sleepy villages.
This Portuguese-style heritage house offers rooms decorated in a blend of styles – a taste of Tibet here, a ringed angel there, and everywhere an element of the exotic. A spa offering ayurvedic treatments, and a pool presided over by a mosaic Ganesh, make this Neemrana Noble Homes property a memorable stay.
