Vivenda is not your typical hotel. It is more akin to staying in a colonial summer house belonging to a friend, who isn't there, but tells you his uncle will look after you during your trip. We stayed here for four nights back in April and it was the highlight of our trip. It is difficult to describe the set... More

Have stayed before but we usually go when we want some fresh Western style food. It's always fresh & tasty. Best beef steak I've had in South Goa. Great salads. Excellent drinks menu & all reasonably priced when compared to Western rates.

We travelled to Goa for a wedding, and wanted to relax for a few days before returning home. Vivenda didn't fail to impress - a beautifully-restored house in Majorda that's full of lots of nooks, crannies and character. We chose to stay in the Chummery - a self-contained cottage in the tree-lined garden with a private terrace, plus a second,... More

Absolutely loved the place. It's just like what is mentioned on the site. A little quiet, a little warm n rustic and therein lies the beauty. Super super time. And wid 2 kids, we didn't feel like it was gonna be a problem at all (no tv as well you see). The pool is clean with a canopy of trees... More

The ambiance and charm at Vivenda was an absolutely magical setting for our wedding. The night before our ceremony we were having issues with our events vendor and had to cancel our arrangements with them. Simon and his entire staff put together decor in just a few hours that exceeded any expectation we could have had for any professional events... More

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

Cant find any fault on this property. A beautiful old Portugese house and so much peace and quiet and of course 3 lovely dogs for company. The 9 rooms on offer are all different and unique. 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
