Returning to a hotel in a distant country for holidays only after one and a half year means that you enjoyed the first visit very much. To begin with the result of this second evaluation, we again fell in love with our stay in the cosy boutique hotel Presa di Goa in Nagao/Bardez approximately 3 km east of Calangute, Goa.... More

This is a boutique hotel a converted portugese house that has been sympathetically restored with lots of lovely antique furnishing. The garden and pool are gorgeous. The food and service is great and all though it is not near the beaches it is only about a 5-10 min taxi ride from bago or calangute with candolim only about 20mins away... More

Thank You for reviewing Presa di Goa. However I am surprised that You did not take advantage of our complimentary shuttle service to Baga or Calangute Beach. We do give Beach Towels and and have You brought and returned to/from those two Beaches between 10.00 am and 6.00 pm, unless You chose to go to other Beaches such as Vagator... More

We returned to Presa di Goa to confirm the excellent experience we had last year. We were very pleased to see that the staff hasn’t changed and that they keep up the professional yet pleasantly charming work! The location is still very nice with its well-maintained garden and outside terrace. The staff is really helpful and they add up to... More

This year's visit to the Presa gave us as much pleasure as we have reported in previous reviews. There really is nothing to add to our and other people's reports on its many charms except to reassure that it continues to be a centre of excellence.

Presa di Goa is off the beaten tracks, and the benefits are simple: it is quiet. the elegant houses (originally turkish,a 100 years ago) were beautifully arranged and are nested in such a way one feels to be inside a forest. Yet one is 10 minutes ride to the beaches of Calingute the hotel is definitely a "boutique" one with... More

We stayed in Presa di Goa for 5 days during our Goa trip at Christmas. This cosy hotel is located in a small village, 10 minutes by cab from Calangute beach.

Beautiful rooms, peaceful pool in lush setting, near to beach and town if you want but could easily while away days there. Presa di Goa were incredibly welcoming, allowing us to check in early and check out late as there were no staff, rustling up some food when we arrived hungry at 3 am. The only downside was mosquitos --... More

We stayed at Presa di Goa again because our visit last year was so special. Edouard and his staff have created an oasis of relaxed, quiet luxury only 10 minutes from Baga and Calangute beaches. This time we stayed in the Crossandra junior suite with its balcony overlooking the pool. The suite is furnished in traditional Portuguese style and had... More

Located in the sleepy region of Saligao, away from the busy humdrum of North Goa. If you stay here, you need to have your own transport (owner helps you with renting two-wheelers). the place is a restored Portugues style country home (right down to a lazy dog). Just loved the furniture, decor and the swimming pool. Negatives are the slow... More

It is a very clean place, though some old worn out sofas would need be replaced. We specially enjoied swimming in the pool surrounded by tropical vegetation.
