The boutique resort comprises spacious and elegantly-decorated guests’ rooms spread across three colonial-style Portuguese villas. Each room comes with breathtaking views across the sea entrance to Old Goa. The hotel prides itself on the little details that make you feel at home – bespoke art, restored antique furniture, refreshing cold towels.

Ahilya is an easy five-minute drive to Reis Magos Fort and a ten-minute drive to the buzzing bars and restaurants of Candolim. And when you’re ready to escape Goa’s bustling streets, Ahilya indulges you with its two beautiful swimming pools (a plunge pool and an infinity pool), charming lounge spaces and lovingly tended grounds filled with frangipanis. Find a deck chair in a tranquil nook and relax with a book from the hotel library. Perhaps try a signature cocktail made from local ingredients. Instead of a defined restaurant area, dinner is served on tables dotted about the candlelit terrace, allowing you to feast on a sumptuous selection of local and European-styled food under the stars.
