Sandalwood Resort may be somewhat away from town but its quiet location makes it the perfect holiday getaway. In any case, Panjim can be reached within about 15 minutes by taxi or the hotel's free shuttle. The special feature is that the service right from check-in is great and guests' needs are attended to promptly. During our recent stay there,... More

This helped us to travel to Panaji at will. The room s in this resort are spacious. The beach is a... More
