Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

Goa is a tropical paradise, with a colourful, vibrant and fun vibe throughout. But for a lot of people Goa is much more than just crazy parties, beach, bonfires and cheap booze.

Goa for them stands for plush lounge chairs, big beach umbrellas, sunbathing, drinking by the poolside and simply having the time of our lives. Though a beach party is fun, nothing can beat the charm of lounging under the splendid Goan sun, in the comforts of a private gazebo on a warm morning.

And for those of you who like the taste of aged wine and appreciate finer things in life, The Park Resort in Calangute Goa is a perfect fit for your upcoming vacay.

For the Heart

Strategically located near the Calangute Beach in Goa, this resort appeals to those who are looking for a dose of luxury mixed with a hint of eccentricity. The interiors here are quirky and fun, and as soon as you step into the place an utter sense of leisure and a holiday laziness engulfs your senses to slow down your pace.

The wide open interiors, the vibrant colours, the beautiful rooms and the stunning property is just enough to tick all your luxury checklists and make for the perfect leisure vacation.

While the elegantly decorated rooms put you into a relaxed slumber, the private cabanas by the pool side make for the perfect sun-bathing and lounging spot. The entire hotel has a tropical-bohemian feel to it and you won't be able to resist the poolside drinks, the cool towels or the refreshing flower bath.

P.S. The ambience of the resort and the rooms make for wonderful Instagram pictures. Such that would instantly make your friends jealous of all the fun you've been having.

Love, Peace and something to eat!

The resort has two gem of places right inside the gargantuan complex- Love and Peace. While the former is an award-winning world cuisine restaurant, the latter is a bar perfect for catching a drink with bae, few shots with the pals or just savouring a glass of wine slowly and relishing some alone time.

The pristine white and purple restaurant opens directly onto the ravishing beach and serves delicious global cuisine. The food served here is delicious enough to mesmerise even the most staunch of epicures. We especially enjoyed the Sunday brunch and all the exclusive wine list the place offers.

Knock Knock

If you're looking for a place where you can kick-back, relax, have a lazy time and enjoy all the worldly pleasures, The Park Calangute is the place you need to be at. The bohemian resort is ideal for couples, solo travellers and even friend groups, the fact that the resort is right at the beach only adds to the charm of the place. We would highly recommend the place for all your leisure and tropical vacation needs.
