This is the second time we've stayed at the Vivenda and it will not be the last. The charm of the place lies in the location, the beautiful decor, the comfortable rooms, the most excellent service and the delicious food. And the best ever gin and tonics! Breakfast is a shared experience with all guests sitting at a very large... More

We spent an idyllic weekend at Vivenda on the recommendation of a number of different trusted travelers. The house is simply beautiful, the staff charming, the food delicious and most importantly, the property has a unique ambience that instantly relaxes and unwinds the guests. As an Indian hotel operator myself, I can say that Simon and Charlotte have achieved something... More

We stayed here for only 3nights end of Nov-Dec 2013 on our second honeymoon. We were blown away by so many aspects to this magical place. The property itself is full of character and charm and so sociable. For us,the most amazing aspects were the quality and perfection of the food served from breakfast- lunch-dinner. The staff were sooo friendly,... More

There is english breakfast and good dinner if you choose to eat at the hotel. Both are had with the other guests in a... More

We stayed here for New Year and had an amazing time. It's a beautifully restored property, full of character and charm. It does take a bit of getting used to as you do feel like you are in someone's home, however, that said it doesn't take long to feel at home. We stayed in Madras, a lovely big airy room... More

It's a brilliant and wonderful place to stay: like staying with your most hospitable friend who has 15 staff to cater to your smallest and greatest whims. It's a lovely house, set in the woods, very near the beach; that lulls you into a state of either deep relaxation, or spirits you to occasional energetic adventures. The rooms are all... More

We stayed five days in this charming place. The front of the house is Portuguese with two large bedrooms, a sitting room leading out to a veranda and a large dining room. The older indian house behind has three double bedrooms. The garden at the back has a swimming pool, dining area and a cottage with a large double room.... More

Vivenda Dos Palhacos is like a home away from home. You get the service level of a luxury hotel and the warmth of a family home.

Goa is fabulous. And if you are looking for a boutique hotel that is run by people who live in the 'real world' and not in the big corporate world-- this place is the answer. You will feel comfortable, well taken care of, and best of all, totally relaxed. What a lovely charming place. What wonderful, delightful people.
