Reasons to go to Colva

1Feel the charm of uncrowded Colva
Feel the charm of uncrowded Colva

Arrive at this charming south Goa beach. Normally crowded during the tourist season, this beach is visited mostly by off-beat travellers and couples during the monsoon. The local market is open and tiny restaurants serve you great beer and local food. Stroll up to the hamlet of Betalbathim, the ocean reveals its monsoon grandeur.

Sit Relax and Read a Book

Some times we look for a destination for doing nothing. Nothing as in nothing, no selfies, no monuments, no water rides Just to sit and do nothing . . Colva is one such destinations where you do nothing. I love the Colva beach for its nothingness. Best you can do is Read your book while sipping your beer. Enjoy the nothingness of Colva.

Very nice location. Rooms are good and clean. We stayed there for 1 night. It was a wonderful experience. Food was good. We all enjoyed a lot. I booked this hotel because of Swimming Pool. Though it is small, my children enjoyed Swimming in the pool. Staff are very co-operative. Overall a nice stay.
