Resorts

When the winter chill tries to freeze your bones and the sun doesn’t seem to shine ever, head to Montego Bay Beach Village Resort in Morjim, Goa and enjoy a summery winter. If you are planning a trip to the sunny Goa, make sure to stay at the sprawling Montego Bay Beach Resort because, it is the kind of place that makes you forget about everything and fills your soul with calm.

Accomodation

If you are a fan of nature and wish to spend some time in a tranquil atmosphere, Montego Bay Beach Village Resort offers the option of staying in an AC tent under the stars. If you’re looking for a little seclusion then you can opt for a wooden cabin or if you want to wake up to the sound of the ocean, go for the beach facing wood cabin suite.

Goa is the perfect location and the most preferred one too, when it comes to destination weddings. So if you are planning a cutesy beach wedding, then Casa-de-Mudanca, by Montego Bay, that offers a five bedroom villa with attached bathrooms should be your preferred choice.

Rejuvenate from within

This resort is located right by the ocean, and when you step outside on the property, the entire Morjim beach feels like a courtyard. The location actually makes taking long walks across the beach, feeling sand beneath your toes and basking in the sun, really easy. Surrounded by tall green trees and drenched with sunlight, Montego Bay is where you come to relax and enjoy a leisurely vacation. The resort also offers a number of spa and massage options that you can pick from to have the ultimate refreshing experience!

And when you feel a little adventurous, go for dolphin sightings, shop at the local flea markets, enjoy a night filled with drinks and karaoke and explore the beauty that is Goa!

So if you’re planning a visit to Goa or are already there, do dive in the luxurious and peaceful experience that Montego Bay Beach Village provides and let your worries be washed away with the ocean waves.

Speaking of wanting things...

If you’re looking for a place that serves some great North Indian food, you should definitely visit Living Room. While travelling down south, it often becomes difficult to find a good North Indian joint, and we need an occasional break, even from the yummy tropical coconut.

So dig into some “Patiala Da Mutton” and “Dilli Wala Butter Chicken” at the Living Room. While the mutton is so delicate it falls off the bone, the chicken is juicy and flavoursome. We also recommend their “Chicken Cafreal”, the Goan speciality made in coconut oil and served with a thick gravy. And to top off the calories with some more calories try their Rasmalai, Oh it is the softest, creamiest and the most succulent Rasmalai you’ll taste in all of Goa!

Their Breakfast spread is LAVISH, though complimentary, the breakfast they serve is delicious, especially the soft and buttery omelette. Plus they give you a variety of options to choose from and their breakfast time is long enough, so that you don’t miss it. Also they have a fully functional bar!

The hotel is reasonably priced, so if you’re not looking to dish out the big bucks, Living Room is the perfect place for you. The team of staff managed by Rupesh Srivastava, is very accommodating, understanding and polite. They will help you with everything, be it resolving your doubt about the directions to a faraway beach or just booking a car or bike, that is literally available right outside the hotel. If help is what you need, they’ll provide!

Located a few meters uphill to the left of Antares beach club. Shalai is situated perfectly to give you the electrifying atmosphere of north Goa & at the same time the serenity which one would associate with south Goa. Breathe in the serene view from the room and surrender yourself to tranquillity as every room has a sea view here.

Montego Bay Beach Village at Morjim is one resort which made us feel completely at home. Our log cabin was sea facing and we literally had the Morjim beach as our courtyard. Located bang on the beach, this village is sure to make long for another stay here soon after you reach back to the city.

For the heart

It wouldn't be wrong to say that everyone has dreamt about living peacefully in a small hut on a beach by a calm sea. You can live your dream at Montego Bay beach resort while your stay in Goa. Along the perimeter of a tastefully landscaped garden, 40 units of wooden cabins and canvas tents are erected, well spaced to not to barge into someone's privacy.

Experience Marbela beach resort at Morjim beach and be amazed by the sheer class this place offers. The White sand of the Morjim beach coupled with the all-white exteriors of the resort makes for a picturesque setting. During our stay here the Russian Holi festival was on hence we could not have the regular menu food here as there was a special party menu on offer, but whatever we had we were quite sure that the food here would be nothing short of exceptional.

For the heart

There is no better way to enjoy the white sand Morjim beach than to cuddle up with your loved ones in the white teepee tents and breathe in the serenity of the wide blue sea. The private beach stretch of the Marbella beach resort has a perfect romantic setup for your getaway.

The white tents standing across perfectly trimmed green grass are tastefully designed. The in-house trainers will help you if you want to give surfing a shot.

The Mexican fish and lemon iced tea from their kitchen is a combo that you can have at any time of the day and you will surely feel refreshed. If you are looking for a resort which has perhaps the best in-house events/parties in Goa, then this is the place for you. The only downside is the loud music which runs till late in the night.
