Presa di Goa was the perfect choice for our honeymoon. We had a wonderful stay. The property was beautifully maintained, with a lovely pool and gardens resembling an oasis. The in-house restaurant also serves delicious local and international cuisine at reasonable prices and our breakfast every morning was excellent and generous. Our room (Marigold) was incredibly spacious and very tastefully... More

We stayed here from July 8-12, 2015 and a month later, we are waiting to go back again. If your idea of a holiday is a scenic home where time stands still, this is is a great option. It is the kind of place that tempts you to pause and take in the surroundings. We stayed in Marigold, and enjoyed... More

My husband and I stayed here at the recommendation of our awesome tour company, Enchanting Travel. We had saved Goa for the end of our 3 wks in India, figuring we would want some time near the beach to relax and really process our entire experience. We found Presa di Goa to be perfect for what we wanted. We were... 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

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.
