A short drive from the historic city of Panjim, the peaceful village of Britona is one of the most beautiful settings in Goa. Converted from a three hundred year old heritage warehouse, with only eight rooms and two riverside studios, this unique boutique property faces directly onto the beautiful backwaters of the Mandovi River.
It is easy to see why Casa Britona is regarded by discerning guests as the most idyllic setting for a Goan adventure or escape.
You can relax on the verandah with its spectacular views of the river and forested hills in the background. You can spend hours by the free form turquoise swimming pool or lounging on the deck which is literally suspended over the riverbank.
The rooms are designed with an eclectic selection of colonial antique furniture from Goa and Cochin, hand painted walled frescoes and four poster beds draped lavishly in nets and muslins and delicately hand embroidered bed linen.

From its dazzling location overlooking North Goa's most dramatic and inviting beach, Casa Vagator is a daring reinvention of the boutique luxury resort.

The Portuguese word Sossegado , along with many others, is still often used in Konkani, "Goa's" official language. Often misunderstood to mean lazy, the dictionary defines sossegado as "quiet, restful, assured, at peace".
It means taking time to enjoy the good things in life and a very sane refusal to be rushed. A refreshing holiday is an investment in your greatest assets-your family and well-being
Perhaps Laguna Anjuna's most easily recognized feature is its large lush tropical garden as one enters, with its large free form swimming pool. A wild kind of beauty imbues a natural sense of peace and homecoming.

A stone's throw away from the endless rice paddies, PRESA di GOA provides for privacy, romance and true relaxation with only the song of birds, the occasional whistle of the toddy tapper climbing the coconut palms and the honk of the baker on his daily rounds to punctuate the calm.
PRESA di GOA is the culmination of 25 years experience, across the globe, from one of the best in the hospitality industry.
This unique country house is located in the typical serene village of Nagoa, just beyond the sandy shores and noise of Goa's beach belt, yet close enough to enjoy a day at Goa's popular beaches, Baga & Calangute, that are a mere 10 minute drive away. Bask in Goa's glorious sunshine by the tempting swimming pool amidst the swaying palms and soak in the atmosphere over a meal in our restaurant, barbecue and bar, set in lush green gardens.
