Considering this is India it's very peaceful,the breeze in the tree leaves, the birds chirping away..... You can spend hours looking at the view over the river bending down below...

No flexibility on...

Absolutely stunning, secluded, private venue with beautiful rooms, breath taking views, and first class service. Tranquility personified, a unique residence in Goa. Delicious home cooked food which stands up against any top restaurant. The staff were well trained and outstanding throughout our stay. A beautiful boutique hotel in a great location as close to the sights of Goa but hidden...

We had a family wedding recently at this property. I must say, this was perfect. The property is outstanding. All 3 villas are distinct and are very well designed and planned.
