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. Both Beni and Ganesh played great hosts and made us feel absolutely at home. The food was home cooked goodness. The icing on the... More

We are a family of four and stayed at Arco Iris for two nights in December 2015. (Sorry for the delay, Beni, but as you will see, it was not because we have forgotten our time with you!) Beni and her two daughters were wonderful hosts. We had been in a beach resort in Goa for two nights already, and... More

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. What struck me when I first arrived was the amazing beauty of the place. This looked like a hacienda out the movies, right down to mosiac art... More

Who would think Goa without the sun and sand could be equally magical if not more? I had the good fortune to stay at ARCO IRIS this spring and can't wait to go back with the family. This charming Portuguese style Goan home, in a quiet lakeside location, is elegantly designed and impeccably maintained. Everything about ARCO IRIS is perfect...the... More

If you're googling quiet and relaxing stay options in Goa, you might as well stop now and book Arco Iris. We stayed for 4 amazing days and had the best time. The location is absolutely amazing if you like to catch a run or a walk in the mornings. The property itself could take up a day in terms of... More

Everything about Arco Iris was delightful. Beni's hospitality was warm and friendly, and she provided us with a beautiful environment for our stay in Goa. The rooms were large with private baths and well appointed. The house and grounds of Arco Iris are magnificent. I highly recommend it.

The name of the house; 'Rainbow' in English, gives a hint of its décor. Each guest room is a different colour and the whole house is superbly and tastefully decorated. I fell in love with it instantly. Both our lovely warm orange room and our bathroom were spacious and the bed comfortable. The food was EXCELLENT; we had intended to... More

This was one of our favourite stays on our recent trip to India. The owners could not be more welcoming and helpful. Benni helped us plan great outings to the beach and Panaji and also helped us book a car and driver. This beautiful home is located in a quiet part of south Goa with great countryside around.

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
