In 1996, we bought an old farm house in Assagao's Valley of Flowers, a serene setting with a generous garden filled with mango, teak and coconut palms.
Our experienced chefs Shalini and Ranjita and their team know what it takes to please our guests with Goan and western cuisine. Fresh seafood and hearty, well-seasoned local dishes will soon having you settling into warm well-being. We also prepare fresh, healthy, Ayurvedic vegetarian dishes on request. Crisp salads, fresh fruit every day and organic ingredients round out the picture. We have a small but well-stocked house bar for celebrations and dinner parties – often with live music.
Our large swimming pool is at the back of the garden, as is the meditation and rest deck, with its sweeping view over the rice paddies toward Anjuna Beach and the ruins of Chapora Fort.
Our fresh-water pool is not only a delight in the daytime – floating in the warm water under a canopy of southern stars is also a special experience.
Water buffaloes grazing in the rice paddies accompanied by gleaming white herons add to the sense of tranquility. The morning songs of the kingfishers and cockatoos, the restless chipmunks in the ancient mango trees and the occasional mating calls of the toads underscore the peaceful tropical atmosphere.
Bungalows & Bamboo Cottages
Our three guest bungalows were built in traditional style, each with a generous veranda and en-suite bathroom.
Our tree house, built entirely of bamboo, is tucked away in a huge mango tree. Its terrace has a sweeping view over the rice paddies, and the bathroom is in the lower floor.
Another spacious bamboo cottage is hidden away in the back of the garden, its terrace overlooking the swimming pool. The farm house is over 100 years old and has been completely renovated. It features two guest rooms with baths, a broad common terrace, a small library and our office.
Our home entertainment center with its choice collection of DVDs is open to all of our guests. Adjoining the house is our modern kitchen in which we prepare breakfast buffets, tasty lunchtime snacks and sumptuous dinners.
