Planning A Bachelorette In Goa? Here's A Quick Guide

    Ten-Second Takeaway

    Goa is probably the best and most popular destination for a bachelorette in India, and thus qualifies well enough for your best friend’s big bash too. We know how much of a task planning a bachelorette can be—right from the places to go and things to do to the tiniest of other details—and that is why we’ve sorted it out for you.

    Here is a list of things you can add to your checklist.

    Stay In Style

    From high-end options to budget stays, Goa has options galore. Planet Hollywood {Uttorda} is a great one if the bride is a movie buff, SinQ {Candolim} is for some hardcore partying, Beleza {Betalbatim}, Estrela Do Mar {Calangute} and Marbela Beach Resort {Morjim} are perfect for ultimate chilling scenes. If you’re looking at a budget-friendly-yet-satisfying stay, Tamarind Hotel {Anjuna} is the perfect pick.

    Wheels For Hire

    Scooties and Jeeps for hire are for everyone, so what really can you do to set the gang apart? Hire a luxury car {probably a limo, if you’re looking to splurge} and get driven around on your night-outs by a chauffeur without the hassle of finding a parking space or even driving back when you’re drunk {which’ll mostly be the case}.

    Catamaran Cruising

    It ain’t really a bachelorette if you haven’t partied aboard a catamaran. While cruise parties are always an option, having your group onboard your personal catamaran is a different experience altogether. They start as cheap as INR 8,000, and come equipped with bars, trampolines, mini pools and what not.

    P-P-Poker Face

    A bit of gambling has never hurt anybody, and bachelorettes are perfect occasions to test your luck. While Deltin Jaqk, Casino Carnival and Casino Pride are great options to try, the Deltin Royale is the best. Spread over 40,000 square feet and with 123 gaming tables, a gourmet restaurant, a whisky lounge and VIP gaming suites, this is one place you just won’t want to leave.

    Shopaholics Unite

    No bachelorette is complete without a healthy dose of shopping, and Goa offers almost every kind of it. You can pretty much do a whole week of shopping with the various flea markets that Goa has, but if it is some high street fashion you’re looking for, head to Sosa’s and Wendell Rodricks Design Space.

    Adrenaline Rush

    From go-karting and ATV rides to wakeboarding and scuba diving, you can choose your favourite, or just try them all. Most activities don’t cost too much, and are conducted with trained professionals around.

    One of the latest is flyboarding, for which you’ll have to go to Baina Beach.

    Shake That Booty

    Clubbing is that part of the trip that we just can’t ignore, and when in Goa, you have a chance to visit almost every kind of club. While Love Passion Karma, Titos, Cohiba and many such options are regular haunts for tourists from Delhi, it is clubs like SinQ {Candolim}, Nyex {Anjuna}, Leopard Valley {between Agonda and Palolem}, Silent Noise {Palolem} and Liquid Sky {Vagator} that are really worth a visit.

    Beach Bums

    This one is for those mornings after hardcore partying when you just need some quiet time. Pack your swimwear and head to some of the unexplored beaches for just some lazy sunbathing. South Goa is full of amazing beaches {with some hidden ones like Hollant Beach} that aren’t just great for hanging out, but are also Instagram-worthy.

    Hunger Busters

    Thalassa {Vagator}, Antares Restaurant & Beach Club {Ozran}, Starcos {Anjuna}, Soul Souffle {Margao}, Britto’s Bar and Restaurant {Baga} and Cafe Cotinga {Anjuna} are just some of the great options you can check out if you’re looking for popular spots in Goa for bachelorette dinners.

    Aunty Maria – Fidalgo (Panaji} is a great option for breakfasts, while Martin’s Corner {Betalbatim}, Palacio Do Deao {Quepem} and A Tona {Penha De Franca} serve amazing Goan delicacies.
