Living Room exemplifies comfort... Everything from the Buddha pond at the reception to the deep blue of the lounges around the pool will relax you; the interiors too are subtle and modern. Take a dip in the pool before heading to the beach, and if you feel lazy just lounge by in the sun, grab a drink after a long day, or play some pool to unwind.

The rooms are big and comfortable, no matter who you are travelling with you can trust the hotel to provide the perfect accommodation, a twin bedroom for friends, a queen bedroom for couples, or an attached double suite for people travelling with family.

For the Taste Buds

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!

If help is what you need, they’ll provide!
