If you are an admirer of architecture, art and aesthetically done up rooms, Arco Iris is the place to be. For, it's a beautiful house with an extraordinary decor. It was a pleasure staying in such a house surrounded by books and Portuguese furniture, in the company of our host Benny and her labrador Fenny. The food cooked at Arco Iris is also worth a mention. Fresh local dishes which were a delight to the tongue.

A long walk in the morning along with Benny aunty, amidst the serene surroundings of Curtorim was another experience which was memorable and rare.
It's a beautiful place, with delicious food run by passionate and compassionate people who are very hospitable.

This was my first ever trip to India and I'm extremely glad I chose this homestay instead of one of the tourists-packed hotels. It's a heritage Portuguese style house in a nice quiet village. The owner Beni was very helpful and accommodating in giving sightseeing advise. In house staff was also always ready to assist. The homemade Goan dinner (or lunch) is a must try. Definitely a good choice if you're looking for a nice relaxing getaway ;)

You need to see, feel and experience this property to believe it. Far from the crowds and yet close to the beaches and the city. Very good and friendly hosts. My pet Zoey had a great time in the property and had fun time with the hosts. As i type this my wife insits that our next Goan vacation is in Arco Iris. Thanks Benni for being a wonderful host.

Goa is always wonderful and our holiday this May was all the more magical thanks to the one of the most beautiful properties we’ve stayed in – the Arco Iris. The Instagram-worthy home is located in the quaintest village of South Goa. We were woken every morning by chirping birds and hymns from the nearby Chapel. The home is also perfect to stay in to beat the summer heat and read a book in one of the many comfortable seating spots.

Bennita and family are an excellent host and the staff is more than gracious. The rooms are comfortable and the food is delectable. We’d love to visit again soon.

A friend’s family had to drop out of the trip at the last moment. Bennita was more than accommodating to let them reschedule their visit any time in the next one year.

Must not forget to mention Fenni, the family dog

Artistic, serene and a well maintained homestay! We stayed in Arco Ibis for 2 days in Dec 2017 with our family of 7 members. Bennita is an excellent host. Her home is aesthetically designed with beautiful hand picked artifacts. The rooms were very comfortable with individual attached bathrooms. There is a breakfast option (included in stay) and lunch/dinner option (made to order - exclusive of stay). The home is conveniently located in South Goa with close proximity to Margao. Bennita and Ganesh made sure we were well taken care of, including accommodating our last minute date changes. Not to forget Ratul, Bennita's house help who took great care in making sure we were comfortable during our stay. We also made friends with Bennita's adorable dog Fenny!
We thoroughly enjoyed staying here, specially our parents who were so relaxed in this picturesque nature retreat. Cheers to Bennita and her team!
Highly recommend Arco Ibis for your next Goan holiday!
