We are secluded on a small peninsular...
… which juts into the Arabian Sea. Our accommodation runs for 75 metres all along the north east facing shoreline of the peninsular. The rooms are bracketed by our restaurant and reception at one end, and our beautiful yoga shala at the other. We have configured our rooms such that they all enjoy sea views, and when the tide is in no room is more than 10m from the sea.
Our ‘Chira’ rooms have been built in the traditional fisherman style using laterite stone (Chira in the local language), which is then rendered with mortar. They all come with en suite private bathrooms.
The roofs are ‘v’ shaped and made of clay baked tiles which are laid on rough cut wooden joists. As a result there are gaps between the tops of the walls and the roof. The thick tiles help to keep the sun out and the gaps keep the room ventilated so that they remain quite cool even in the midday heat. The eaves are slung slow, which also helps with cooling, so if you are one of our taller guests (we’re talking about you especially our Dutch guests) please remember that sometimes you may have to duck.
Chira rooms & wooden cabins
Each room has at least one ceiling fan, and a double bed with a very comfy mattress, for blankets we have light Rajistani style quilts (in December and January it can feel chilly at night so we also have duvets on request). There are mosquito nets over windows and another for the bed (we’re very close to the sea so mosquitos aren’t as much of an issue for us as for other places in Goa but if one or two find their way into your room at night they can still be nuisance).
Our bathrooms are newly appointed with nice ceramics and instant hot water for showering.
In the day you’ll mostly be outside and so each room enjoys a private veranda with table, chairs and a couch for lounging about on. Our al fresco restaurant is open seven days a week for breakfast and lunch and you can order food to eat at your room if that’s your preference.
