All About Goa

Whether you’re a local or international traveler, no other holiday destination beats Goa. Situated on the west coast of India touching the Arabian Sea, Goa is well known for tourism, fisheries and iron ore mining industries. The area has a pleasant climate throughout the year, with average temperatures ranging from 20-36 degrees Celsius. June through September is known as the South West Monsoon Season and is the rainiest season for the Goa State, with about 90% of annual rainfall occurring during this season.

Goa is one of India's historic treasures, and it has played a huge part on the state's cuisine and culture. It begins in prehistoric times with various rulers claiming the state. The Portuguese captured Goa from Adil Shah, and stayed for the next 400 years. Then, the Indian Army claimed the state as part of the country in 1961.

The capital of Goa is Panaji, which also serves as the headquarters of the northern district. It is no surprise that its colorful history, heritage sites and monuments of yesteryear are an added attraction for the visitor.


Goa is synonymous with beaches. One of the best ones in the area is Calangute Beach, located just 1 kilometer from our hotel. With 10 kilometers of golden sands that shimmer in the sunlight and stars that compete at night, there is no other place quite like it. The Calangute stretches into the Baga Beach in one contiguous flow, with the Baga Brook flowing into it. Baga Beach is a great place to enjoy parasailing, dolphin watching or other water-sport activities. Take some time out of your trip to explore all the gorgeous beaches of North Goa.
