Lonely Planet review
Indulgence is the order of the day at this swanky village-style place, designed by renowned local architect Charles Correa, located 1km down the coast from Dona Paula at Vanguinim Beach. All the usual opulence is on offer, including pool, spa and casino, with eight restaurants to satisfy your culinary requirements. Chow down at Portuguese-themed Alfama, complete with wandering minstrels to serenade you as you dine, or drop in for a cool sundowner at the Bar Latino.
Our independent authors have visited Cidade De Goa and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Dona Paula.
