This is a long overdue review for Capella, where we stayed for just over a day Nov 2016. Ayesha welcomed at very short notice and was kind enough to bump us up to a pool-facing room. Capella can boast of exquisite yet homely interiors, and is a perfect getaway home stay if you are looking for relaxation and a comfortable... More

Beautifully built property - verdant, sprawling, calm, clean and comfortable. Be your getaway a adventurous one, or cultural or wild... you'd look forward to ending the day in Capella and be ready for another 24 hours of Goa! Great hosts - genial, helpful, informative and very importantly, trusting. Ayesha and Jamshed Madon make you welcome like family. And like the... More

A wonderful place to stay. Well located, clean, quaint and rustic. Lovely house full of interesting collections - pictures, china, pottery and more. Ayesha was a great host and we were made very welcome. Our room ( Heliconia) was immaculate, with beautiful views of fields. Breakfast was good. It was probably the best b&b we've ever stayed in. Would recommend... More

Capella is a wonderful option for accommodation, if you are looking for a quiet serene place to stay, while not being too far from the beaches. Though it is located on a hill, away from the city hustle, it is still just a few minutes ride away from Baga (3kms). Location: Capella is based on top of a small hill,... More

Capella is a gem in Goa, hidden from the crowds and the crazy vibes. It is located at an off the road path, perfectly placed in the woods and actually became a part of it. But this does not mean you are isolated, it is just a few minutes away from the nice beaches and the lively night life. If... More

Capella is located on a hill in a quiet, peaceful area a few minutes drive from Baga beach in North Goa. Its hard to believe that there is such a quiet forest area so close to Baga beach. As you enter the gate you can see the big house up on the hill with a small pool in the front.... More

JULY 2015- MY 8TH VISIT IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS - and it couldn't have been more momentous as I broke my lower back and was confined to a month long bed rest.

Capella, Goa offers you the very rare combination of a great property with great service. The hosts Ayesha and Jamshed are among the warmest people you will come across. And these qualities have rubbed off on their staff as well. The "Honest Bar" on the property is a nice touch and further shows you how welcoming they are of people... More

Cannot believe we chose to stay just two days at Capella. It really seemed so short. The charming villa is tastefully done up – we secretly wished it were ours :P Relaxing by the pool, goofing around with their pets simba and muffin, long afternoon siestas after a wholesome lunch and board games really helped us unwind and feel thoroughly...
