Goa is a small state in western India that has, in recent years, become an attractive tourist destination and home to some beautiful, unique hotels. Finding a hotel in Goa is all about experiencing something different from the run-of-the-mill hotels and holidays you might be used to.
Most of the hotels are focussed around the areas of Candolim and Calangute in Northern Goa, home to two beaches of the same name. Candolim is the quieter area of the two, ideal if you're looking for some romantic relaxation or a quieter hotel, whereas Calangute is more lively.
Goa is the ideal destination if you're looking for a hotel as a base to explore this fascinating part of India. Home to various colonial architecture - from the Portuguese that settled on this part of the coast - all the way to its enormous spice plantations and gorgeous wildlife, there's a lot to see and do beyond your hotel's swimming pool.
