Sea View Or Pool View? You Can Enjoy Both At This Resort In North Goa
Prainha Resort By The Sea is a beachfront resort in Dona Paula that’s sweetly tucked in a quiet palm grove, giving its guests a lovely scenic view throughout. Ideal for those that seek complete comfort on vacations, this comes with a pool, wifi, a restaurant and TV and AC fitted rooms.
What Makes It Awesome
A good balance between being too hipster or going too mainstream, this is one of those resorts that are happy to put practicality first. This is why their beachfront rooms and cottages don’t just come with the promise of quiet evenings and lazy afternoons, but with modern-day comforts like electric kettles and hot showers; Perfect for families and of course, those looking for downtime minus the worries of, oh ‘but where do I grab dinner post 10pm’.
Prainha is situated at the spot where the river meets the sea, making it a real treat for water babies. With a pool as delightful as theirs (you can watch the sea as you swim), it’s hard to imagine why anyone would choose the most crowded North Goa beaches to stay at. The gardens are perfect for a stroll after you’ve spent the day in Panjim exploring the Fontainhas or at the Old Goa Church. The Dona Paula jetty, is a stone’s throw away and if you’re really in the mood for a long walk, you can head to Miramar beach and call it a day at the many chaatwalas that line the stretch.
Whether you want a car on hire, the restaurant’s Goan food on your bed (hello, room service) or want to just step out for a sunset cruise on the river, everything is simple at this family-friendly resort. From here, you can also drive down the nearby villages or go fishing and watersports as well. It’s also a boon that the area itself allows more interaction with the locals than the tourists, giving you an insight into the local culture that is usually lost as you move further North.
The tariffs start at INR 4.5k a night.
