The resort is located just on the dona paula beach, which gives it great strategic value, as you just walk to the dona paula and hang out there. The cottage rooms have an old-world charm, with Portuguese style furniture, which I totally loved. The pool area is nice to relax, as it is surrounded by beautiful palm trees. It leads... More

The last time I stayed at Prainha was in 1993. I was pleasantly surprised to see the hotel completely renovated. We booked two rooms. One was a cottage that was furnished with old Portuguese style furniture. It had a charm of its own and overlooked the sea. The other room was a modern one which had an extensive balcony that...

We discovered Prainha by chance, but so glad we found it. The hotel faces a small alcove of the sea. The best part of the hotel is the restaurant and pool area that faces the sea. The food is superb and service is super warm and friendly. They went out of their way to make our meal perfect. We could... More

Staff are very helpful and friendly, they can't do enough for you! Food in the outdoor restaurant is superb! I tried most dishes and was never disappointed. It's situated right on the beach -...

Getting to the hotel can be a pain, as the approach road was completely dug up and barely motorable. I stayed with family for 3 nights at the second floor sea facing rooms. The lawn is laid out nicely at the back end of the resort with the sea adjoining the court yard. The swimming pool is just beautifully inviting... More

Last February we celebrated our wedding in the beautiful garden of Prainha Hotel. We had come to know of the resort a year ago and fell immediately in love with this place.

This resort is one of the best resorts I have stayed in recent times. The rooms are clean and cozy..... in fact romantic. The furniture is old-fashioned but it compliments the resort as a perfect match. The restaurant is open, facing the sea and serves a variety of delicious goan food. They have good options for breakfast also. The swimming... More

I stayed for four nights at Prainha recently, on a vacation trip with friends. It had been recommended by a friend and we finally chose it for two main reasons. First, it sounded like a small, old-fashioned hotel - a quiet oasis rather than a bustling resort. Second, we couldn't decide between north and south goa beaches and Prainha is... More
