Every room different and big, with a 5 elements theme. We loved it solo much for its very private feel and look. I was awed by the make... More

The open to the sky shower facilities are lovely. Linda and the staff take good care of you. The swimming pool is large and clean. The hotel... More

Nilaya is a little off the beaen track in Apora but the drive is well worth it. The views from the pool and rooms is fantastic . It's the perfect place to relax and get away from the maddaning crowd. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The rooms are spacious and very unusual all of them have special features.... More

We had an incredible stay at the Nilaya. Staff was kind and helpful. We enjoyed the pool and our room. Food was really good. We had massage every day and it was really great. The hotel is situated in some hill in the middle of the vegetation so really quiet and beautiful. We loved our stay after a 2 weeks... More

So personal preferences aside, this a really beautiful luxury resort. I believe one of the top in Goa. The resort is pretty much surrounded by jungle. Different bungalows (or... More

Linda has the greatest hospitality And great welcome where she inform you from smallest details you need .All Rooms are nice big but remember you are in a jungle so you will may see some instincts in the rooms...
