Set back amongst the paddy fields but still within easy reach of the magnificent Colva beach, Alila Diwa is a fantastic hotel with huge amounts of style, character and luxurious features. The swimming pool is simply enormous and probably the best pool we have seen anywhere in the world. The views across the paddy fields are serene, best enjoyed from the partially submerged loungers to keep cool.
Alila Diwa is a relatively new resort, opened in 2009. It is located in south Goa, around 20 minutes drive from the airport. It has been built using traditional Goan architecture features but with a contemporary twist. The 150 rooms spread over two levels and two wings are spacious, well equipped and extremely comfortable. Facilities include four restaurants and bar, library, a health spa, two swimming pools, and open air Jacuzzi. A free shuttle bus transports guests to the beach where the hotel provides sun loungers. You really have the best of everything here, wonderful paddy field location, easy access to the beach and a luxury resort that delivers character and style. It’s our favourite resort in Goa, we think you’ll love it too.
