It's the most relaxing place to visit Where you feel away from everything , Just nature where you find peace . 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...

It's hard to be satisfied with any other hotel when you have first been to Nilaya. This master piece of architecture is completely unique and so detailed beautiful. Big up for the incredible staff that has been there (most of them) for 17-20 years and takes you in from day one as a family member. The food ... I could... More

We are a little late with this review, but I had to do it all the same. Nilaya means "Home" and we were truly at home in this beautiful resort tucked away in Arpora, Goa. You can hardly tell there are buildings till you reach the front entrance, the architecture is so cleverly built into the mountainside! Gorgeous views,and surroundings.... More

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the staff at Nilaya for making us so comfortable and so happy when we were there few weeks ago. Nilaya is an amazing hotel, but the most wonderful thing about it is the People that Run it, the sense of belonging and pride that the staff at Nilaya have is awe inspiring.... More

The nilaya is a beautiful hotel with lovely staff who are very happy to help at any time, if you ask! They will not intrude on you though so do ask! There is a lovely retreat feel to it with no phones or television, but thankfully good wifi by the pool! And one room has a satellite dish if that's... More

I have had the most amazing time at Nilaya this year. It is a beautiful property tucked away on a hill, quiet, serene and so, so relaxed. Our stay in Goa was the best holiday we have had in a long long time, especially in Goa where all hotels are so commercial and crowded. Nilaya has a wonderful staff, ever... More

A very private hotel with large luxurious rooms, impeccable service and delicious food. The hotel is very close to baga beach but still manages to remain romantic, quiet and serene. A perfect place to spend time with your family and loved ones, especially if you are looking to get away from the usual over crowded and boisterous crowds of Goa.

Everything at Nilaya was perfect, the room, the service, the staff, the food (the chef was so gracious, nothing was too much trouble), the pool, the monkeys, peacocks, beautiful birds, the massages, the yoga. I could have stayed a week, but sadly we only only 2 nights, three days and no problem with a late check out. This is a... More
