This hotel is located on the northern most tip of Goa. We enjoyed a scenic ferry ride to get here. One can also get here by road. It was truly a heritage experience as they have maintained the Portuguese fort very well. There is a huge church in the property. The rooms are spacious and have magnificent views of the ocean. The manager took us for a nice short heritage walk along the coast and even took us for an unforgettable yoga session on the beach. Food was great and so were the cocktails. Some of the freshest coconut water is served here. I highly recommend this hotel for a leisure trip of a few days at least. You might even spot celebrities hanging around sometimes.

The place is beautiful. Peace and quite. The staff & service is impeccable.the staff went above and beyond to make sure our stay was good. The food was absolutely amazing & chef took note to customise the food as our requirement. I never stay at the same place twice in a destination but I will definitely stay here again when I visit goa. It was my first holiday with my 8 month old baby & we had the most relaxing holiday we deserved thanks to the whole team. Thanks a lot. Kulmeet

Stayed at this beautiful property for 02 nights. It is a old fort converted into a hotel but still retaining the old world charm and the heritage aspect of it. The rooms are very comfortable with antique furniture but all modern facility. A very quiet and serene place with a fantastic view of the sea ( ketty beach ) and very well connected at the same time isolated from crowd unlike most of the properties in Goa. It is must visit place. The food quality, the staff are all very good. Will again visit this property whenever a opportunity is available.

We stayed here for 3 nights. The place is on top of a hill and is right next to the Tiracol river. The views from the rooms as well as from the restaurants is amazing. There are a total of 7 seven rooms - each named after a day of the week. One can reach the hotel in two ways. One is to drive up to the "Keri" ferry point across the river and then take the government ferry to the "Terekhol" ferry point. The ferry point on the Tiracol side is 1.5kms from the hotel. The hotel has a "on request" pickup and drop service to the ferry point. The ferry service is free for pedestrians and costs a nominal fee if a car has to be carried over. The ferry can hold 4 cars and a number of 2 wheelers. The other option is to take the road bridge (over the Tiracol river) - which is an extra 15-20 mins drive. The only problem is that this passes through the state of Maharashtra and one needs a road permit if you are using a commercial vehicle (with a yellow and black number plate). For travelling into Goa, I would recommend a self driven car, which the hotel arranges for at a decent price. The food is average to good. The breakfast is a very standard fare, which is served at most hotels. The lunch / dinner menu is a mix of Indian, Continental and Chinese and is also limited. The standard rooms are slightly small, but has an attached space for storage etc. The bathrooms are really nice and spacious. Overall, the place is very well kept and clean. The staff is very nice and caring. They understand your needs very well and cater to what is needed. Would definitely recommend this place for a visit.

We (me and my spouse) stayed for 1 night in this hotel via Agoda. We were offered a free upgrade. We had a great room with terrace (room name Wednesday - definitely recommend it). Great bathroom and beds. Awesome settings (natural beauty combined with history - original Portuguese fort). Restaurant offers great food (though it is pricey).

Fort Tiracol is like a picture postcard! All the rooms have a breathtaking view of the sea- an estuary actually, one can see the river meeting the ocean. The rooms are HUGE, to say the least and furnished tastefully with Victorian style floral drapes and bed linen. Cleanliness is a big plus, the bathroom is well stocked with toiletries and towels. Their terrace restaurant serves great food, if you order a la carte and the breakfast buffet choice is very good too. They serve traditional Goan food with lots of other choices, so there's something for everyone. The staff is very hospitable, willing to help with transport and so on. We visited during the rainy season, so couldn't sit out in the room balcony to enjoy a cup of coffee or sit out at all but I'm sure the dry season must be lovely. While on the pricier side, Fort Tiracol is an experience to be savoured. If one wants a first hand experience of living in heritage hotel, this is it.

A very beautiful, picturesque place located on a small hill top. Access to the place is via a government owned ferry which operates free of cost to-n-fro every half an hour. The ferry carries cars too for a nominal fee. There's also a long route access to place via Maharashtra border if you are coming from North via road. We stayed at the hotel (which is actually a well renovated 600yrs old Portuguese fort) for 3 nights (Dec 12th onwards) and the hotel was very comfy with highly courteous and helping staff. Special mention of Ms Sukorin at the reception desk takes personal interest in solving  your all queries and making you feel comfortable. Food at the restaurant is excellent (more of Portuguese-Goan blend). Since the location is in village. there are not enough food joints outside the hotel. The village (Terekhol) has a population of just 80 families. This is a perfect place to relax for 3 to 4 nights max for people searching for a peaceful and a beautiful location. Partying people should avoid it! Distance from Goa Airport is 2.5 to 3 hrs depending on traffic. Don't miss a 1 hr trek which starts from the hotel's entrance and takes you behind the hotel to see beautiful birds in wilderness and it leads you to a small rocky beachside. Preferably do this trek on first light of Sun to watch bird activity. Enjoyed a serene and a beautiful stay there. Will visit again.

Dear Vinay, First of all, we wish you a very Happy New Year i really thank you for writing such a detailed review and helping our guests to know about how to get to the Fort Tiracol Heritage Hotel. Yes, it is secluded from the bustle of the city and peacefully perched on the northernmost tip of Goa is Fort Tiracol. So Arambol is literally like 20- 25 mins away and Aswim will take 35-40 mins at the most, even if someone is in Goa to Party it will not be an issue for them to come back to the hotel. The ferry runs from 6.30 am till 10 pm if someone is coming later than 10 pm they can always take the road which adds 5 km to the total journey via Maharastra. We are looking forward to hosting you again with more memorable experiences at Fort Tiracol. Hope to see you soon.
