Tired of work by now? Are you sitting in your office and dreaming yourself on a holiday, relaxing on the beach, viewing sunsets, drinking on some fine cocktails, and doing nothing? Do you have Goa on your mind for a quick break? We all have been to Goa numerous times and are honestly bored of Calangute and Baga. Also, there comes a time when you are past your ‘drink-all-night’ and ‘burn-the-dance-floor’ phase at North Goa’s overcrowded beach bars and pubs.
It’s time to head to South Goa as an alternative. Specially if you want to feel a serene and laid-back holiday. Though, one often gets told that South Goa is costly. We say, it’s not. You just need to look for alternatives that fit your financial plan without compromising on the luxury. We listed out the best beach-facing resorts in South Goa that won’t burn up a hole in your pocket.
1. A bohemian stay at the Agonda Beach
Not many know about the Agonda beach and that’s why it has less visitor footfall compared to the rest of the beaches in South Goa. We came across this beautiful bohemian style boutique guesthouse situated just a two-minute walk away from the sea. Situated under palm trees with a hammock by the riverside, this secret gem costs you just Rs 1,800 per night. What’s not to love about this spot?
2. An Eco-friendly stay near Palolem Beach
An environment friendly stay just 50 meters away from the Palolem beach for just Rs 2,000 per night is a valuable find. This wooden cottage is beautifully designed with all the facilities except an air-conditioner. Encircled by abundant greenery and mesmerizing natural beauty, this idealistic eco-retreat stay is just ideal for a laid back break. If you can do without an AC, it’s the perfect hideout.
3. A comfy retreat at Calwaddo Beach
Situated 100 meters from Calwaddo Beach, Pele’s Windsong wood cottage in Benaulim presents some breath-taking viewpoints of the sea and the sunset. The flawless Instagram beach picture with the caption, “Here for the view” fits this place best and it costs you just Rs 2,500 per night. Every room has a balcony and seating area constructed perfectly for you to forget all your worries and unwind.
4. A cosy hut stay on Cola beach
Did you know there’s a lovely beach situated amidst the freshwater emerald lagoons in South Goa? Well, you’re in for a revelation then. This beautiful secluded beach is just a 10-minute drive from Agonda and has some super cozy jungle nests for a romantic stay with your bae. If you’re not confident yet, we insist you take a look at the pictures. Situated in the middle of the forest by the river, this secret gem costs just Rs 1,999 per night.
