Marinha Dourada details
Surrounded by hills and lakes, this award-winning hotel puts you at one with nature.
It's the amazing scenery that sets this place apart. The hotel is built among lakes, salt pans and rice fields, with the Baga River nearby, so it gives you a real flavour of Goa. The service here is just as impressive, and partly why TripAdvisor reviewers have ranked it the number one hotel in the area.
The hotel itself overlooks two large swimming pools, plus another smaller one for children. There's a whirlpool bath, too, and a steam room, beauty parlour and well-equipped gym.
Inside, rooms are simply dressed but welcoming and cosy. They all come with their own balconies, alongside modern trimmings like air-conditioning and mini-fridges.
Last but not least, there’s the restaurant to consider. It serves up a mix of Goan specialities and international favourites on its terrace. And when you fancy eating out, it's just a 20-minute walk to lively Baga Beach, with plenty of bars, cafés and restaurants lining its shore.
