Fodor's Expert Review Alila Diwa Goa

48/10 Adao Vado Majorda, Salcette, Majorda, Goa, 403713, India

Overlooking verdant rice plantations and the Arabian Sea, the Alila Goa is a cool open oasis of dark pitched roofs, breezy verandas, and serene courtyards. The first Indian venture for the Alila luxury chain, this stylish 12-acre resort is designed to soothe and indulge—whether through pampering Ayurvedic or Balinese spa treatments, lounging by its lovely sea-facing infinity pool, going on custom local tours and activities, or catching a flick at its mini-movie theater. The rooms all come with balconies and are fully loaded with modern luxury and high-tech amenities, including 40-inch LCD televisions. A daily shuttle service takes you to nearby Cansolim Beach.
