I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the staff at Nilaya for making us so comfortable and so happy when we were there few weeks ago. Nilaya is an amazing hotel, but the most wonderful thing about it is the People that Run it, the sense of belonging and pride that the staff at Nilaya have is awe inspiring....

The nilaya is a beautiful hotel with lovely staff who are very happy to help at any time, if you ask! They will not intrude on you though so do ask! There is a lovely retreat feel to it with no phones or television, but thankfully good wifi by the pool! And one room has a satellite dish if that's...

I have had the most amazing time at Nilaya this year. It is a beautiful property tucked away on a hill, quiet, serene and so, so relaxed. Our stay in Goa was the best holiday we have had in a long long time, especially in Goa where all hotels are so commercial and crowded. Nilaya has a wonderful staff, ever...

A very private hotel with large luxurious rooms, impeccable service and delicious food. The hotel is very close to baga beach but still manages to remain romantic, quiet and serene. A perfect place to spend time with your family and loved ones, especially if you are looking to get away from the usual over crowded and boisterous crowds of Goa.

Everything at Nilaya was perfect, the room, the service, the staff, the food (the chef was so gracious, nothing was too much trouble), the pool, the monkeys, peacocks, beautiful birds, the massages, the yoga. I could have stayed a week, but sadly we only only 2 nights, three days and no problem with a late check out. This is a...

We stayed here for three nights to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. This has to be the best hotel I have ever stayed in.

We have been to Nilaya several times and had a birthday lunch there with friends. It is in a beautiful situation on a hillside near the coast but far enough to give you complete privacy. The style of the buildings, the decor and rooms are superb. The swimming pool is wonderful. The meal was fantastic and I would recommend it...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nilaya Hermitage is located on the hill tops of Arpora, North Goa with a stunning view of the Arabian Sea and the Arpora Valley. The 33 meter swimming pool rises out like a blue lagoon amongst an award winning Moorish architecture. The Boutique resort naturally blends into the landscaped gardens and the surrounding forest that gives a surreal effect of being away in a different world where quietness is what you breath. The food is predominantly continental and is prepared lovingly by our master chef with more than 15 years of hosting the discerning traveler. ... more   less
