Just stayed over Easter at Rivercat for 5 nights and it was a haven after staying in hot beach huts. Immediately when we walked in we loved the eclectic mix of art and sculptures, the cool music playing and the effusive and welcoming nature of out host Reeno. The beautiful gardens overlook the river with relaxing chairs and hammocks to... More

I spent a week in one of the tents and it was just great! The owner Rinoo is so charming, friendly and we had many good discussions with other guests. Travelling alone, I met other guests, we went out together and chatted over coffee at breakfast exactly what I needed. The tent was pretty and very clean and cleaned on... More

Delighted to return to Villa RiverCat after a few years to enjoy its magic again. The rooms are large, clean and beautifully furnished. The balconies look out into the trees and down to the river. Rinoo is the perfect host and his staff friendly and attentive. I look forward to our next visit.

We stayed at Villa Rivercat in early September which is completely out of season and so we were fortunately the only two guests at the villa. From the moment of arrival we were treated as friends by Rinoo and his assistant. The house was built by Rinoo himself and every room was decorated so beautifully and really reflected the Indian...

Villa Rivercat is one of my favourite places to stay in Goa- Very relaxing surroundings, great service, surrounded by beautiful plants and animals (a few well behaved cats stays there) - I will definitely come back. It's also a great place to host meetings etc. Thank you Villa Rivercat!

I had an excellent time staying here over the Christmas holidays. The home and patio along the river are stunning - right out of the pages of Architectural Digest. So peaceful and comfortable. Rinoo made us feel very comfortable at all times and shared lots of local information with us. His staff were also super helpful and eager to assist... More

The Villa offers more than just accomodation and food. It is the unique atmosphere of beauty and harmony, the carefully chosen decoration and colours all around, the garden, etc. that make this place an ideal location to recharging and finding inner peace. I can full-heartedly recommend this place to those who like beauty and harmony.

We have been in Villa Rivercat the last three years. As Rinoo, the owner says, "this is not a hotel, it is a home, so feel welcome". That we do, which is why we are going back again this year for a fourth time!
