Would recommend Capella to anyone who is looking for a serene, romantic, and relaxed getaway. We stayed in the cottage that had all the modern facilities with an old world charm. Ayesha and Jamshed are wonderful hosts who are always helpful and hospitable while they never interfere with your privacy. The staff is friendly and always smiling. Their pets are extremely lovable. We went to their restaurant J&A's twice because that's how excellent it is. We are very particular about the way our food tastes and J&A's left us happily satisfied! The first visit was even more special since J&A treated us so beautifully on our engagement. Thanks Ayesha and Jamshed for the wonderful treatment and being the perfect hosts! We will keep coming back for more!

I have been to Goa many many times and have stayed at a lot of placed right from luxury 5 star resorts to beach shacks etc. but stay at Capella was my best stay ever & best every by a BIG margin.

Capella is simply brilliant to stay. It is a very cool property build with a lot of thought by Ayesha and Jamshed. It has an amazing old world charm. The attention given to small details like the old world large beds, antique tables & chairs etc make this a very unique place to stay. It is a perfect blend of old world world charm and modern day amenities.

The hosts - Ayesha and Jamshed are very very friendly and see to it that you enjoy your stay to the max. They go out of their way to help you with any requests you have like local places to eat, places to visit etc. With them around you never feel that you are staying in a hotel, its like staying with your friends.

The food at capella is to die for. Tasty home made food at shockingly low costs. You must try their parsi delicacies like Dhan Sag, Mutton cutlets etc. They are amazing and better than any restaurant food.

The Staff at Capella is very very efficient an ensure that you have no problems at all.

There are so many amazing to do at Capella. They have a very good collection of movies to watch, amazing books to read, massive collection of board games, Ipod doc, a unique mini bar and a large pool to relax in.

Capella is located in a very quiet & picturesque location and a perfect place to relax. But for the beach lovers, Capella is located at a 10 min distance from the popular Baga and Calungute beachs.

Its the perfect place to visit for families and young couples alike.

Come here and enjoy the most amazing, relaxing and fun holiday you every have had.
Cannot wait to go back and Capella will be the place I will always stay when in Goa.

Room Tip: Select the first floor room facing the pool

Far away from the maddening crowds , but close to the North Goa beaches of Baga , Candolim on one side and Morjim Ashvem on the other. Ayesha and team are absolutely fabulous. Their homemade bread and their Eating out recommendations are not to be missed.

Ayesha and Jamshed have made a wonderful blend of Goa's old world charm and the modern in developing their property. The hospitality and warmth of the couple, the friendly and helpful staff, the lovely room with its wonderful view, all made for one of the best vacation stays we have had. When you stay there put at least a day aside to explore the property, chat with the very informative and helpful hosts, or laze in the infinity pool and the lovely garden around it.If you feel like some night life, Panjim is just forty minutes away by car while Baga and Calagute are a fifteen minute ride with very reasonably rated taxis that can be arranged for you by the Madons. Our stay was too short and we weren't really able to do justice to all that it offered so we hope to return soon!

Room Tip: The room in the main house has a wonderful view as its on the first floor.

Ayesha, Jamshed and their staff are incredibly warm and welcoming. They have a beautiful house that they very generously throw open to their guests -- which literally extends to the entire house, and not just the rooms.

Their delicious homemade bread is a winner as is the pool. They're also very helpful with recommendations and directions.

Plus, Capella is very conveniently located vis-a-vis the food district close to Baga Beach. In fact they have a stellar Italian restaurant - J&A, with a thoughtfully composed, beautifully executed menu and a stellar ambience -- which for some reason they're shy to recommend (apart from the mention on their website) to their guests.
