Spent an extended weekend at this fabulous homestay in the heart of rush rural Goa. Well connected to almost everything in the State, if you have a vehicle. Remarkably well renovated bungalow. Cool rooms. Excellent hosts.

Arco Iris is an elegantly styled Portuguese home with no detail spared. The home has a lovely flow with a lot of character.

We brought in my friend's 40th birthday at this wonderful boutique home stay and it was the best decision ever. Away from the hustle bustle of Goa beaches tucked away in a quiet part of Goa.

Arco Iris is a tribute both to the splendid Portuguese heritage of Goa and Ganesh's loving efforts to renovate a piece of architectural beauty that was in need of a lot of love.

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
