“AMAZING HOMESTAY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

Arcoiris is a beautiful,amazing homestay which has been done artistically by Beni and Ganesh.We with our friend's family visited them in March 2014 and had a very pleasant and great stay.The hosts were too good.Our children had a great time by playing in the garden with Trikaya and Trusha at a point they refused to come to the beach and shopping. the lovely pet Feni was part of them,we all enjoyed playing with feni.It is a complete stay.You will never to get to see such a big lawn,backyard,rooms which is very well maintained . its better to stay in the beautiful arco iris with fresh air rather than staying in a hotel!!

Arco Iris, a 200 year old house so tastefully done up by Benni and Gani offers the ideal place for a chilled out vacation in Goa. The rooms are so tastefully and vibrantly done up. The hosts are so very warm. The lush greenery, blooming flowers and the sound of chirping birds in the property refresh your soul and body. Benni’s adorable yellow lab, Feni is a total stress buster and a certified charmer even of those who do not like dogs. If you want to spice up your stay a bit, you can take a walk to the Zuari river bank, go for boating in the river, look up the churches in the vicinity, most which are nearly 400 years old. All in all, a lovely homestay!

Room Tip: All rooms are equally good! If you are confused, do inky-pinky-ponky!

Arco Iris is truly a Home away from Home. The Hosts Bennita and Ganesh with their Daughters Trusha andTrikaya along with their Pet Labrador Feni all take care of You with genuine warmth and One gets the feeling to be a part of their family.

This January 2014 was my third trip to Arco Iris. I Love the tranquility and the peaceful ambience around Arco Iris.

Located in South Goa in the midst of nature and pure fresh air to breathe, Arco Iris is a perfect getaway to relax, rejuvenate and recharge one's senses.

The rooms are spacious, clean and the Domestic Help are very courteous and sincere. One is served authentic goan cuisine with soothing music playing in the background.

Thank You Bennita and Ganesh for welcoming me again into your beautiful home.

Cheers and Best,

Manu Kumar Lal

We had a family get-together at Arco Iris and all of us cousins and our assorted children had a marvellous time. The stay was an amazing experience, it is a part of Goa that we will cherish in our hearts.

Room Tip: All the rooms are large and well-ventilated. Choose any room, you won't be disappointed.

Definitely one of the best stays I've had in my nomadic life of 3 years so far. The stay was for 2 nights - enjoyed every moment of it. The ambiance and the warmth of the people who work here and the hospitality by Benni was "feel home". Truly a stress buster stay! Very tastefully done rooms and beautiful surroundings. And great food - me and my friends used to enjoy the breakfasts!! I hope to get here again with my folks sometime and also recommend it to my family and friends who visit Goa often.

After arriving here we realized we know so little about a place that we visit at least thrice a year. This property reeks of a bygone era and shares you so many stories with you each day. be it the architecture, furniture, mosaic work or room decor. it is an excellent place to stay and soak in the real flavours of Goa. a must stay for all my friends, especially during monsoon when beach activities are anyways risky for families and children.

Always felt Goa was about beaches until we entered Beni and Gani's beautiful home in Curtorim. The property is lovely and green. Situated opposite a lake, makes it ideal for long and leisurely walks. The rooms in the house are large and spacious, with comfortable easy chairs placed outside the rooms facing the greens of the courtyard. Beni recommended a lovely Goan-Portuguese restaurant where we eat some fantastic Goan vegetarian dishes. Loved our stay here and will definitely visit soon.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Arco Iris means “Rainbow” in Portuguese, and was built on a sprawling, 1.5 acre terraced property which overlooks a seasonal lake. This supplements the water requirements of the surrounding paddy fields. The proximity to the lake and the Zuari, the abundant greenery in and around the property, ensure a picturesque Goan setting throughout the year. The house itself is styled along colonial Portuguese lines with a high plinth, imposing columns, high ceilings and offers excellent natural ventilation throughout the year. It has been restored, true to its heritage and without compromising the modern day amenities that have come to be associated with the changes in lifestyle since the early 19th century.During the restoration process, all efforts were made to preserve the original materials which had originally gone into the construction of the house by using them, at times, for alternate purposes. The end result is a house which reflects a judicious and tasteful blend of the modern and the traditional. With a built up area of around 7,000 sq feet, the house comprises an “entrada” (foyer), “sala” (living room), dining room, four guest bedrooms with attached bathrooms and a fully equipped modern kitchen. Three of the bedrooms open onto private balconies. It also has a “balcao” (balcony) in front and a courtyard at the rear. The “balcao”, is the most social part of the house where any daily activity, be it catching up with neighbours, reading morning newspapers, eating , or just plain lazing can be enjoyed. The “sala” or the high ceilinged living room is reserved for formally receiving and entertaining visitors. The dining room is dominated by the dining table which can comfortably seat 8. All bedrooms have been suitably modified to accommodate attached bathrooms with modern amenities. The bedroom colours have been chosen keeping in mind the colours of the rainbow.There is plenty of space to read in the lounges, the dining room, or outdoors in the verandah. ... more   less
