The 4 best hotels in Goa

We list the four best beachside luxury hotels in Goa – check these out and check in on your next Goa trip.

For decades, Goa was the hippy, relaxed counterpoint to the shinier metros and sedate Tier II cities in the country. Popularised in the 70s by the hippies who came visiting in a wave of free love and cheap drugs, Goa was the fun holiday hangout for those looking to have a bit of holiday fun away from their dreary lives in the cities.

But over the years, Goa slowly transformed itself into a variety of different things. Sure, it is the still the party destination for the country – but it is also so much more. Many people visiting Goa today look for an authentic Goan experience, be it in tasteful luxury accommodation or traditional food preparations. They also look to stay in luxury hotels near the beaches in Goa instead of putting up in shacks and homestays.
