Marinha Dourada Resort, Goa
The welcoming Marinha Dourada Resort enjoys a great location on the edge of two small lakes with direct views of the nearby paddy fields. Baga Beach and the resort centre is either a 10 minute walk away or a couple of minutes in the hotel’s free shuttle bus. All along the beach you will find little ‘shacks’ and bars selling drinks and local delicacies and, of course, you’ll also find local entrepreneurs selling everything from silk shirts to saris.
The Marinha Dourada has a restaurant overlooking one of the two swimming pools and, in high season, you can hire pedaloes and rowing boats on the lake. The second swimming pool has wonderful lake views and its own sunbathing area. There’s occasional live music in the hotel and there’s also a bar, a small gym, jacuzzi, and beauty salon (payable locally). All the hotel’s air-conditioned bedrooms, with balcony or terrace, have a ceiling fan, phone, minibar, TV with some satellite channels and a bathroom with sh/wc
