The Tamarind Hotel


About 4 km from the hot spots of Goa—the Anjuna Beach, Vagator Beach, Chapora Fort, Chapora Beach, and Anjuna Flea Market—this gorgeous property gives out some serious Victorian vibes. The stone façade with tiled roofs surrounds an azure pool that leads to quaint staircases. Stone walls with earthy tones, aquamarines and cane wicker furniture paint up the property into a little fairy-tale abode. The rooms here are all fitted with modern amenities to assure guests of utmost comfort.

So despite the many beaches around to entice you, it might take you phenomenal energies to get out of this property to explore the world outside. A lounge bar for friends, conversations, and cocktails; a wondrous restaurant that serves authentic Goan, Indian, and Italian cuisines; and some of the best moments of relaxed fun—how else would you want to spend a vacation? There’s so much here that will keep bringing you back for more.
