Beleza...by the beach
Ranked #1 of 5 Hotels in Betalbatim
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 6, 2013

A really nice hotel with spacious and well maintained and nicely furnished rooms. In fact the entire resort is beautiful and very well maintained. In addition there were many recreational facilities like children play-ground, table tennis, carrom, spa, fitness room.
It was also well guarded with fencing and security guards, a plus considering the isolated location.
It's a 2 minutes walk to the beach. The beach is clean, quite and not over flooded with tourists as in other parts of GOA, especially in the north. The hotel provides fresh towels for the beach and also for the swimming pool.
You can reach Colva by foot (1.5km) either walking along the beach or the back road.
Taxi is the only alternative to get anywhere from this hotel, these are available almost 24hrs at the hotel main gate, OR the reception can also arrange one for you.
The choice of food is limited but the food is really good and you could choose from different cuisines. Every second evening there was a happy hour on cocktails accompanied with a one-man live music show.
Breakfast was good.
Not far from the airport (20-25mins with taxi).

This was my second stay at Beleza during Christmas, 2012 (previous one being November 2009) and needless to say the experience was as great as ever.

The staff was polite, courteous and helpful despite the hotel being completely booked. The location is great and so is the path through to the Beach which is hardly 50 meters from the resort.

Really have nothing to complain about.

For me Beleza is now synonymous with Goa. Just hope that the team keeps up their good work. Cheers.

Room Tip: Choose the floors on the first floor for a better view. Also "C" and "D" offer p...

Let me start on positive note as this property is very well located on a very clean calm and scenic beach. They have a private access to beach and a nice Shack on beach. Staff is Mostly well mannered (Other than kitchen staff). Rooms are Nice, Clean and Tidy.

Now the Negatives:- We stayed there for 2 Nights and on both the days had very bad experience during breakfast. Its like fighting for the food there. The breakfast is served till 10:15, we were there at 9:15 and Guess what, They had Danish Pastries which were over, They had Idli (South Indian Dish) but Chutney was over the fruits served looked like second grade and those were also over. On Asking the duty staff there they bluntly said that its on first come first serve basis and is over. However our argument was if the breakfast timings ate 10:15 then they need to maintain proper supply of food/fruits and other articles till that time. On much argument they agreed to prepare new batch of pastries which never reached us even after 1 hour at 10:30. They was a couple from Holland which were there for long stay and they also complained the same.

Just back after spending 4 nights with family , First of all thanks to tripadvisor since my decision was entirely based on the reviews that I read here and I must say that I was not disappointed .

Resort is beautiful at an excellent location ,in fact it is a residential complex with villas which has been converted into a resort . Rooms are nice and big bathrooms are huge and sparkling clean with top quality fitments . Each villa has three rooms and common area has an open Kitchen equipped with a refrigerator and microwave .

Pool is big an clean with a splash pool for kids . Other recreational facilities include a TT table and carrom board . There is also a Gym and Spa .

The resort is at short distance from beach and access is through a guarded passage .

Staff is polite , we didn't get any opportunity for any complaint during our stay right from the pickup to checkout . Despite the peak season the staff was able to handle the situation very well .

Food choice is very limited at the restaurant but the quality is very good . We had to get some dishes customized as per our liking and the chef willingly did it . Buffet breakfast is adequate if not lavish , the menu for the breakfast seems to have been decided keeping in view the Indian and foreign guests .

One of the reason why this place is run so well and gets such good reviews is also due to the fact that owner takes special interest in the functioning , we got a chance meet her when an event was organised by her to interact with guests .

Now some suggestions for improvement .

- Wifi connectivity is very poor in rooms and needs to be improved .
- Guests can be provided with newspapers every morning.
- During buffet breakfast some senior manager could be present to run he show , at times it seemed that there was some chaos .
- The resort is located at about a mile from colva market , if a periodic shuttle service can be provided as is done by some good hotels , it will be appreciated .

At the end I would recommend Beleza to anyone who wants to spend quality time in Goa .

Room Tip: Rooms in C , D or E blocs with pool view and on First floor

We stayed for 4 nights with big group. The villas are excellent. All staff, admin/front desk/restaurant are very cooperative. The restaurant have very few choices. This is the only concern if you are with your entire family. Overall I would definitely prefer to stay once again in Beleza.

Visited Beleza during the monsoon with my wife and 2 yrs young kid. We had a great time there. Rooms are spacious, service is prompt and property is well maintained. The biggest advantage is its proximity to the beach. It has its own beach with a private passage....very safe and convenient for everyone.

Beleza is a 30 room boutique resort, uniquely built in a villa style.

The villas are most enjoyable for friends, families and teams/groups who are travelling together, as the common spaces of the villa provide ample opportunities for informal interactions and hanging out together. The villa concept, giving a feeling of living in a ‘home away from home’, is a first of its kind in Goa . Our beach resort is spread over 5 acres of open expanse, with our scenic pathway from within the premises of the resort connecting guests to the pristine, white sands of Colva beach. It is conveniently located close to the Colva Promenade (shopping area) as well as a distance covered in 25 minutes from the airport. All rooms are air-conditioned with an attached bathroom, LCD TV with satellite connection, tea/ coffee maker and DVD player. 2 rooms in each villa have a balcony. Guests can choose from a wide selection of movies from our video library free of charge. Tentacao – our world-cuisine restaurant, is an all-day dining restaurant and bar set by the pool side. Nazare – our beach shack and bar, is a beautiful spot to view the sunset and sip sun downers and light snacks. The swimming pool at Beleza is of a good size for serious swimmers, with a section carved out for children. The deck around it is comfortably designed for sun-bathers and well shaded for others to laze and enjoy their afternoon siesta. Espaco Divino – Our Spa facility – offers a range of relaxing massages and steam room service. The Gym is equipped with quality equipment for those fitness freaks who would like to visit. Yoga classes can be organised upon request. Our conference room is picturesquely set overlooking the swimming pool, and it can seat up to 35 people.
