Lalit Golf & Spa Resort

Hotel in Rajbag

Rajbag is dominated by the presence of this 85-acre five-star. The hotel is particularly popular with well-heeled domestic and Russian tourists, and is notable for having Goa’s only championship nine-hole golf course (nonguests ₹1550 for 18 holes), a helipad and the Rejuve Spa. The lagoon swimming pool will probably make you forget there’s an ocean outside.

Look out for the small Hindu temple to the left of the entrance – local pressure forced the developers to build around it rather than move it.
