This lovely property tucked away in a quiet neighbourhood of Majorda is a gem and we are so glad we found it. The property is very tastefully decorated with antique furniture and artifacts, vintage photos, exquisite wall art and a lovely book collection. It's a pleasure to just spend the day indoors and look through your room and the common...

If you wanted to have a home away from home in Ga, this should be it. You will not feel as if you are staying at a hotel, but rather that you are visiting dear friends who are fortunate enough to own an exquisite, beautifully restored old Portuguese home in Goa. Charlotte and Simon Hayward, sister and brother, could not...

We absolutely loved this property. The owner was friendly and helpful, the room and hotel were artfully decorated with antiques and interesting furniture, the pool was wonderful and relaxing, great location tucked away near the beach, the staff was wonderful, food was delicious every day, great (strong!) cocktails, and we adored the other guests who were all quite open to...

If you want modern gleaming marble and shiny stainless steel go somewhere else. If you want hype, and noise and partying go somewhere else. If you want to hide away with other tourists from the people of Goa go somewhere else. If you don't like dogs or finding cute frogs in your bathroom go somewhere else. If you want a...

Charlotte, Simon, John and staff, really make you feel welcome and nothing is too much trouble. The food cooked here is a really nice quality and fresh, the steak was to die for. Breakfast is at a large alter table where everybody eats together, which is fine, if you don't mind being a couple in the midst of a rather...

We returned from Goa a week ago. This is a unique, charming place to stay, eat, relax and meet new friends. We loved the relaxed atmosphere, setting, great food and hospitality from the team, led by Simon and Charlotte. Massage and yoga was wonderful. The dogs added to the fun and just 30 minutes from the airport - what more...

This hotel is just what I adore, laid back, attractive and eccentric. The staff cater to all whims and fancies, the pool is bracing for hangovers and the bar is a great place to meet your fellow guests. this is not a hotel for shrinking violets. The rooms are all different and due to the somewhat haphazard nature of the...

I stayed for a long weekend at Vivenda and it felt like I had spent a week unwinding and relaxing - such is the serenity and charm of this eclectically and lovingly restored Portuguese style house. Our stay was during the height of the monsoon. Be prepared for it to rain ALOT but the happiness is in just kicking back...

Vivenda is a Special Safe Oasis.I stayed for 3 nights and after 1 felt like I had been there for a week. The individual rooms of which I started in 2 are exquisite and on par with any European boutique city hotel experience. The staff led by John simply couldn't be happier and friendlier.. Many are locals...its a quiet place...
