Best Place To Stay In Goa

First Time in Goa: Where Should I Stay?

What is the best location to stay in Goa? This is a question we always receive. There are plenty of hotels, resorts, B&Bs, guest houses and bungalows in all budgets. There is no universal “best” neighborhood to stay in Goa.

Similarly, the best stay in Goa are not focused in one neighborhood and it’s easy to find great luxury accommodations in most areas of Goa.

There are luxury villas that offer all modern comforts and privacy for guests who demand the very best and want to get the most out of their Goa vacation. Properties to stay at Goa are located throughout the state – North Goa, South Goa, and Central Goa.

You will find great accommodation on the beach, on the riverfront, up on the hills, in village locations, urban areas, and in cozy, quiet corners surrounded by greenery.

North Goa

South Goa

This is the busier area where you will find some of the top attractions. There are forts, nightclubs, and many restaurants, cafes, bars, and shops.

The most popular beaches are Baga, Candolim, Calangute, Anjuna, Ashwem, Vagator, and Arambol. There are beach shacks with umbrellas and sun beds. Water sports. Often there are beach parties as well. You will also find many good places to stay in Goa.

The south is more serene and peaceful. There are very few nightclubs. There are restaurants and cafes, but they are not together at one place.

The beaches are tree lined and are much quieter. Urban areas like Margao are away from the beach, unlike the north. Top beaches in south Goa include Palolem, Colva, Benaulim, Cavelossim, Mobor, and Agonda.
