Things to do
A Day at the Beach
Spend a day out on the beaches of North Goa. Our favourite beaches are the less crowded Morjim, Ashvem and Mandrem; here the sea is calm and the beaches are not too rocky. The shore is lined with little cafes, shacks, and restaurants so you can spend an entire day enjoying the Goan sun, sand and sea. The beaches of Morjim, Mandrem and Ashvem are a fifty minute drive from the hotel.
Go out to sea with our boatman from the neighboring fishing village of Nerul. Cast a line in Dolphin bay or sail up the Sinquerim River and try your hand at some crab catching. Don’t worry, we’ll provide the rods!

One of the best examples of baroque architecture in India, the Basilica of Bom Jesus is a UNESCO World Heritage site and also houses to the remains of St. Francis Xavier of Assisi. You can take a tour of this 16th century church along with other churches in Old Goa. The church is located 50 minutes away from the hotel.
