Based on the reviews on this site, we chose to stay in Capella for two nights, and thus, we got a chance to enjoy one of the best homestays we have been to so far and one of our best and most relaxing holidays. It is hard, if not impossible, to outdo Capella in anything. Its seemingly historic architecture and... More

Do yourself a favor and stay with Ayesha and Jamshed the next time you are in Goa. Their home, Capella, is the most relaxing, rejuvenating, unique, and warm holiday experience you will have, far superior to any cookie-cutter five star hotel. The genuine concern, fond affection and heartfelt hospitality of the hosts and the soothing, warm energy of their home... More

My husband and I stayed at Capella in Goa, India and had one of the most relaxing and fun vacations in quite a long time. Ayesha and Jamshed, our hosts, were so absolutely gracious. They completely opened their home to us, in fact we were so comfortable it was as if we were staying with friends. Despite their busy schedules,... More

This is a lovely place to stay, an oasis! Really beautiful and peaceful but close to get to places, beaches etc. I would recommend this to people who want to relax. Ayesha and Jamshed, Zal and their dogs are very welcoming!

Went for a girls trip to Capella. It was fabulous. The couple who own the house are very warm and pay great attention to detail. The infinity pool is lovely. One can spend the entire day sitting by the pool and taking a dip when one feels like. You can go swimming at night even. The bar is open to... More

Based on the fantastic reviews on this site, I decided to book the three rooms in Capella. I was travelling with my parents, my sis, her hubby, my nephew and my son. From the moment we were welcomed in Capella to the time we bid adieu, our stay at Ayesha and her husband's home was beyond our expectations. The food,... More

It's become a bit of a ritual - heading to Goa for the Royal Enfield Rider Mania - not so much because we get to meet other like minded bikers from around the country, but because it is our best excuse to spend a few days at Capella. It's like gravity, you get sucked in and never want to leave.... More

I’m not sure if words are going to be enough to express our stay at Capella...you have to go and experience it. But, here goes... Capella's location is just perfect for those wanting to binge at the eateries in North Goa. The lovely beaches of north goa are approximately 45 mins away.

We stumbled upon Capella while browsing through Tripadvisor and were most impressed by its Five Star rating -- and the uniformly glowing reviews. Within hours of reaching the homestay, we understood just why Capella is such a favourite with tourists who prefer small and intimate hotels to the mega resorts that dot Goa's beaches. The lucky guests at Capella get... More
