    This Goa Hotel Has Rooms With Unique Names & A Customised Tuk-Tuk To Take You Around

    Bhavika posted on 19 June

    What Is It?

    Charlotte and Simon, a brother-sister duo who’ve been staying in India for all their life, took a 100-year-old south Goa bungalow and turned into a lovely boutique hotel that now goes by the name Vivenda Dos Palhacos.

    This beautiful property has got it all – from a swimming pool, a dining room for twenty, large rooms leading to verandahs and a lot of sunlight.

    How Do I Get There?

    Vivenda {let’s just call it that for the sake of simplicity} is housed in a little village in South Goa, right by Majorda beach. If you’re traveling by flight, the resort is only 30 minutes from the airport, and 20 minutes from the train station in Margao.

    What's Unique About It?

    The rooms are all named after cities and areas they’re fond of – Alipore, Madras, Ballygunge, Ooty and more. Each room has something unique about it – while one may have a window love seat looking over a coconut plantation, the other may has an open-air washroom. Another may boast of a private entrance to the courtyard.

    Plus they have their own customised, in-house tuk-tuk that guests can borrow {that, or a bicycle} for INR 150 for a trip!

    Anything Else?

    Prices are for the Ballygunge and Ooty rooms start at INR 4786 during the monsoon season. Other rooms have different rates {check here}, and they go up during different seasons. This includes a hearty breakfast.
