“The Timeless Casa Bottu”
Reviewed 4 August 2022 for a stay in July 2022

Casa Bottu or the Island Pool Villa, dated 1903, located amidst serene nature on the beautiful island called Chorão, in Goa. The island surrounds the Mandovi river, lush green hills all around, beautiful old Portuguese colonial villas dating back to the 1900's and some stunning all-white churches out of which the 16th-century St. Bartholomew’s stands out, located right opposite to Casa Bottu. A morning and an evening walk to this church is a must. There's a beautiful cemetery adjacent to the church and there are beautiful trek routes around this island.
Casa Bottu is a huge spacious villa which feels like home, with a pool in the backyard garden surrounded by some beautiful trees like the teak. The teak flowers are quite similar to cherry blossom and their smell is enchanting!
The interiors of the villa takes you back to the heritage and grandeur that was once flourishing in this home. The bedrooms on the first floor are beautifully designed with open baths and alluring paintings. The drawing room or study on the first floor invites you to share a smirk with none other than the charming Mona Lisa. The kitchen is splendid, fully equipped & furnished to host families with lavish mouth watering home cooked meals by the staff who live in the house. And there's Barbecue at the poolside!!!
The cats living there are quite welcoming and they befriend you sooner than you realize. The visiting birds will keep you busy with their chirping throughout the day till its their bed-time.
More than anything else the stay at Casa Bottu is experiential, you experience the elusiveness of the times that once was, a long long time ago. It's an experience one should not miss.
Chorão is far away from the usual bustle of Goa and the silence of the place is what keeps the serenity alive with the well timed church bells. Hope the visitors keep this spirit of the place well protected.

“"Wonderful experience”
Reviewed 24 July 2022 for a stay in July 2022

Where to start? This villa is beautifully designed and gorgeous. The pool is amazing all time of the day and night. Excellent star gazing! The staffs are efficient courteous and always around when u need them. The villa was absolutely fantastic exceeded all our expectations. We leave the house happy. The house came to us much more than a holiday house. Everything around made our stay perfect.
It's not really a goodbye as we want to come back soon. The house was such a peaceful place for all four of us and made us feel happy and safe.
Thank you for everything from the bottom of my heart.
