We stayed in Arco Iris in 2014 December. Very comfortable rooms (we picked the purple room) and good ghar-ka-khana. Note that this is a homestay and not your traditional hotel, so peg your expectations accordingly. In its category, Arco Iris is a very good option to see the lesser-known Goa, live like a local in a century old Portugese villa!...

Arco Iris is a 200 year old Portuguese villa lovingly restored to some extent and remodelled lovingly by Beni and her family. I booked my stay through Hostelworld and Beni got in touch the morning of my arrival to provide directions to Arco Iris.

I would give Arco Iris 7 stars if I could. I can only describe our experience there as magical. My husband & I chose to stay at this beautifully restored 100 plus years old Portugese Villa instead of a standard hotel & we are so glad we did. Lovingly restored by the owners, Bennita & Ganesh, from the ground up,...

The homeowners have restored this house to perfection, and now it is stunning. Beautiful, spacious rooms, great, large bathrooms, peaceful setting....just a wonderful place to escape to. And the hosts are interesting, communicative, nice and helpful...what a combination! I will be back, again and again and again. Just lovely.

Arco Iris is located in a very convenient area for making expeditions and exploring other areas of Goa. We spent two nights and wished we'd booked three instead because we were so busy during the days with driving around (with the driver suggested by Beni) that we really didn't have time to just sit down and enjoy the local area....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Arco Iris means “Rainbow” in Portuguese, and was built on a sprawling, 1.5 acre terraced property which overlooks a seasonal lake. This supplements the water requirements of the surrounding paddy fields. The proximity to the lake and the Zuari, the abundant greenery in and around the property, ensure a picturesque Goan setting throughout the year. The house itself is styled along colonial Portuguese lines with a high plinth, imposing columns, high ceilings and offers excellent natural ventilation throughout the year. It has been restored, true to its heritage and without compromising the modern day amenities that have come to be associated with the changes in lifestyle since the early 19th century.During the restoration process, all efforts were made to preserve the original materials which had originally gone into the construction of the house by using them, at times, for alternate purposes. The end result is a house which reflects a judicious and tasteful blend of the modern and the traditional. With a built up area of around 7,000 sq feet, the house comprises an “entrada” (foyer), “sala” (living room), dining room, four guest bedrooms with attached bathrooms and a fully equipped modern kitchen. Three of the bedrooms open onto private balconies. It also has a “balcao” (balcony) in front and a courtyard at the rear. The “balcao”, is the most social part of the house where any daily activity, be it catching up with neighbours, reading morning newspapers, eating , or just plain lazing can be enjoyed. The “sala” or the high ceilinged living room is reserved for formally receiving and entertaining visitors. The dining room is dominated by the dining table which can comfortably seat 8. All bedrooms have been suitably modified to accommodate attached bathrooms with modern amenities. The bedroom colours have been chosen keeping in mind the colours of the rainbow.There is plenty of space to read in the lounges, the dining room, or outdoors in the verandah. ... more   less
