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

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. The rooms are decorated in a traditional colonial style with an amazing view of the sunset on the Arabian sea (from the sea side rooms). The staff is... More

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

Very classy ambience and architecture. Perhaps it's an old famous resort renovated. So don't expect the modern styles and facilities. But it has a charm of its own. Very impressive services. Special thanks to Mr. Samuel. They have an amazing private beach facing restaurant deck next to the pool. Totally a romantic place. In short the best romantic, classic place... More
