Reviewed 13 March 2012

Far away from the maddening crowds , but close to the North Goa beaches of Baga , Candolim on one side and Morjim Ashvem on the other. Ayesha and team are absolutely fabulous. Their homemade bread and their Eating out recommendations are not to be missed.

Ayesha and Jamshed have made a wonderful blend of Goa's old world charm and the modern in developing their property. The hospitality and warmth of the couple, the friendly and helpful staff, the lovely room with its wonderful view, all made for one of the best vacation stays we have had. When you stay there put at least a day aside to explore the property, chat with the very informative and helpful hosts, or laze in the infinity pool and the lovely garden around it.If you feel like some night life, Panjim is just forty minutes away by car while Baga and Calagute are a fifteen minute ride with very reasonably rated taxis that can be arranged for you by the Madons. Our stay was too short and we weren't really able to do justice to all that it offered so we hope to return soon!

Room Tip: The room in the main house has a wonderful view as its on the first floor.

Ayesha, Jamshed and their staff are incredibly warm and welcoming. They have a beautiful house that they very generously throw open to their guests -- which literally extends to the entire house, and not just the rooms.

Their delicious homemade bread is a winner as is the pool. They're also very helpful with recommendations and directions.

Plus, Capella is very conveniently located vis-a-vis the food district close to Baga Beach. In fact they have a stellar Italian restaurant - J&A, with a thoughtfully composed, beautifully executed menu and a stellar ambience -- which for some reason they're shy to recommend (apart from the mention on their website) to their guests.

We returned to Capella and spent 3 nights in mid Feb 2012 after having had a wonderful stay in April 2011. This time we stayed in the room on the 1st floor, Heliconia, having stayed at the cottage silk Cotton the last time. We were very pleased to note that Capella looks as beautiful as ever, and that Jamshed and Ayesha have not yet tired of sharing their wonderful home with guests. Its hard to say which is the nicer room, Heliconia or Silk Cotton. While Silk Cotton is separated from the main house and offers you seclusion and privacy, Heliconia has lovely views over the pool and the greenery beyond - and is also surprisingly spacious, having comfortable accomodated us, 2 adults and 2 children.
It was nice to catch up with Ayesha and Jamshed again. It seems they are quite happy to have kids around the house, as their son has gone to boarding school.
Thanks Ayesha and Jamshed for a lovely time. We are tempted to return soon!

Excellent place. wonderful people-thanks Ayesha, Jamshed, Fatima (and the rest of the very helpful staff)--and last but certainly not the least-Elsa, Luca-Blackie, the cats.
If you wanna do Goa, be part of the action, but away from the madding crowd--this IS the place for you.
Capella is a beautiful home, built around verdant greens (not the manicured greens i love to hate and that most luxury hotels offer. (Lovely birding, incidentally--major plus for me, and others wanting to go bird-watching). We were not lucky enough to see the occasional snake ( non venmous) that decided to visit. And yes, they arrange, bird-watching touris and visits to sactuaries too.
.
Lovely, lovely house, stunning views...the perfect place to Do nothing, get pampered.Read. Indulge/ enjoy great village walks.
and a must-do is go to Go to J&A’s for divine Pizza, great music, spectacular ambience
