About
Description
If you are looking for the ultimate luxury boutique resort in Goa you will find it in Avanilaya. The very name defines the ethos, Avani means Earth and Laya means Abode, communicating the lush natural setting ...More and eco-friendly design. The perfect hideaway in the village of Corjuem near Aldona, the resort is built on a hilltop, its 24 acres sloping down to the waterfront of a Mandovi tributary. It is a relaxing oasis, a paradise experienced only by a select few. The lush gardens teeming with birdlife and the sweeping panoramas are peaceful & inspiring. Avanilaya is a refined haven for anyone wanting a luxurious stay but with the privacy and personalized services. The many types of birds that inhabit the surrounding area also make Avanilaya a paradise for birdwatchers This rare hidden gem provides the perfect opportunity to experience how Goa used to be before it became developed, but without sacrificing any comforts. Each villa offers something different for guests. Avanilaya villas with just 12 individually designed rooms in three elegant villas offer its guests a high degree of privacy and quiet perfect for honeymooners, writers and artists. The beauty of nature and the chic design are complemented by discreet personalised service in a combination that offers the ultimate luxury experience in Goa. Each villa has housekeeping and kitchen staff. Meals are freshly prepared on request by our chefs keeping in mind dietary restrictions and allergies if any. Padimunu Villa (3 Bedroom private courtyard pool) Panchvattti Villa (5 Bedroom private pool) Third Place Villa (4 Bedroom private pool) Each of the three villas has its own individual character and setting. Each also has a luxury swimming pool, its own kitchen and attentive staff. The typical Goan 'Susegaad' atmosphere of relaxed luxury is very much evident. The villas provide the calm to enable one to kick back and unwind. The villas can be accessed easily one to the other. There's no set menu. Rather, something new and different is always being prepared, much of it what you won't find elsewhere. Padimunu (3 Bedroom) Villa. Padimunu has three bedrooms, an elongated living room that occupies one side of the building, and a courtyard swimming pool. Inside, bursts of colour contrast with crisp and chic whites. The stand out feature of this villa is its substantial outdoor undercover dining and sitting space, adjoining the living room that can be fully opened to nature from the sides. Panchavatti Villa (5 Bedroom with Private pool) Indo-Portuguese in style Panchvatti villa meaning 5 trees in Sanskrit has 5 Bedrooms all are en suite and sleep 12 people.The main and largest villa, it has five bedrooms and two living rooms. The rooms are set around a grassy front courtyard. There is an elegant 40 meter verandah that runs along the rear of the building, accessible from the living rooms and two of the bedrooms, that also serves as a dining area. The colonnade verandah overlooks the large infinity swimming pool, nestled amongst the trees. Third private pool Villa (4 Bedroom) The Third Place is designed to be ultra modern. Its name is derived from the term coined by renowned American urban sociologist Ray Oldenburg, which refers to a place to relax away from work and home. The villa has four bedrooms, spread over two levels, and a mesmerizing deck that overlooks the infinity pool and river. All rooms have Tea/coffee making facilities and bathrooms have bath robes and bath amenities. Traditional is blended with contemporary. Billowing curtains, four-poster beds, sunken bathtubs, bathrooms that are almost like living spaces, lanterns, chandeliers, floor cushions, and a transfixing collection of antiques and objets d'art. Avanilaya is a natural sanctuary abounding in birds and plants life. This is what attracts many artists, writers, and musicians. The tranquil energy soothes the mind and lets the soul speak. Inspiration and creativity readily flow through. If you are lucky you might see a peacock strolling around you. Apparently, there are around 80 of them on the property, and their calls can be heard frequently throughout the day. To be as eco-friendly as possible, there is minimal use of plastic at Avanilaya. Aqua guard filtered water is provided in glass bottles in the guest rooms, Composting and rain water harvesting is carried out, and tank water is used for the garden. Avanilaya also has a vegetable garden that produces many of the ingredients used in meals. Avanilaya’s cuisine Avanilaya is known for its Freshly prepared exquisite Goan and continental cuisine Less
