Wow, what can I say about Villa Alina...
Beautifully hidden away from the restaurants and amenities of holiday street in Calangute, and a short 4 minute walk down a private road to the beach, Villa Alina is a beautiful mix of traditional Goan splendour and modern comforts and really does have it all. Stunning pool, happy supper=friendly house keepers and knowlagbe professional management. We didn't need to book a single thing ourselves, everything was mutually planned with us.
14 people and still felt quiet and relaxing. Love the new shanty space to.
Thanks to all the amazing staff at Villa Alina!
You are in for a treat if you manage to spend some time at Villa Alina. Tucked away in the palm trees of one of Goa's largest and most picturesque beaches, this villa is your own mini paradise in paradise. The large airy house, has bedrooms full of character and luxury. The main house opens up on to an expansive patio and pool area that includes everything you need for your stay at Villa Alina whether on a relaxing break, a family holiday or hanging out with friends. The infinity pool is the perfect way to cool down in the Goan sun and the palm tree hang out is the ideal spot to chat away into the early hours . The Villa is situated in Calangute only a short walk from some of its best bars and restaurants. However the best part of this villa is the friendly, hospital and caring staff. Led by Julia they will ensure your time in Goa is unforgettable and are on hand to arrange activities and transport for whatever you need. I highly recommended opting in for a home cooked traditional Goan meal, which was the best meal we had in India. I can’t praise this place enough.
Villa Alina is an idyllic and luxurious retreat just moments walk from a brilliant beach (with some excellent restaurants and bars). The staff were always attentive and friendly.
The Villa is designed with your comfort in mind and there are countless places for you to sit or lie down in the sun as well as shade. The infinity pool is also spectacular and always enticing in the Goa heat.
Once you check into Villa Alina you'll never want to leave!
Just off the strip leading up to Calangute beach lies a luxurius villa that housed 14 of us more than comfortably. The rooms in the main house had so much character, I slept in one of the two bedrooms in the poolhouse which had aircon, a fan and the comfiest bed I could have wished for.
The swimming pool was the perfect size and the house itself had plenty of areas to relax either in the sun or out. The newly built shanti space was perfect for games and drinks in a comfortable area.
Julia was a wonderful host- she organised airport transfers, early morning yoga with a local instructor, transport around the area and has many suggestions for things to do and places to eat. I would also highly recommend the home cooked authentic Indian meal at Villa Alina for the best curry I've ever had.
Three minute walk to the beach with plenty of restaurants and bars this villa is perfectly situated yet in it's own hidden location for the group to feel fully relaxed.
Only come here if you want the beach on your doorstep, amazing sunsets on the balcony and zero worries for the length of your stay.
The villa is absolutely stunning, with everything you could ask for, including an amazing pool, ensuites for every room, 24hr security, a secluded setting (surrounded by coconut trees), and staff second to none.
The maids were as attentive as could be, tirelessly cleaning and cooking for our whole group even though we could have been tidier! Henry and Julia were always contactable to organise cabs/excursions and to help with any aspect of our stay. Highlights included a sunrise fishing trip to catch our dinner for that sunset, and a delicious homemade traditional Goan curry prepared by staff for next to nothing!
Thank you Vila Alina!
Had the privilege of staying two weeks at Villa Alina. We were greeted with cold towels and flower garlands after a long journey and it just got better and better. Lovely breakfast on the terrace, the staff were wonderful and helped us book trips to explore Goa (although it's hard to leave the villa because it's so relaxing!) and our rooms were cleaned every day. It's so close to the beach yet totally private. Highly recommend!!
The Villa is set back from holiday street down a side road away from the busy street but close enough to walk to the many restaurants and shops. If relaxing round the pool is not your cup of tea you can take a short walk down to the beach which has many beach shacks for snacks or meals.
The villa itself is extremely well laid out with 4 large bedrooms in the main building and two large bedrooms in an annex just to the left of the swimming pool where I stayed, all rooms have on suite facilities.
We were served breakfast each morning on the terrace which has a huge dining table which would accommodate around 20 people with ease. This overlooks the pool and well kept gardens which has a great themed chill out area at the bottom.
Both very family and adult friendly with to many little extras too name.
