This meticulously restored Colonial-era century old Pousada boasts of traditional spacious high-ceilinged suites and modern poolside villas all decked out with magnificent rosewood four-poster beds with ornately carved bedheads as the centrepiece, antique rosewood period furniture and almirahs, gilded pelmets adorned with lace curtains, romantic corridors, intricate mosaic terracotta tiling, a common balcao with traditional wrought iron railings where guests can relish a delicious traditional breakfast undisturbed with only the gorgeous picturesque surroundings and ghosts of the Portuguese past for company.

If you’re fortunate enough to land one of the four decadent exclusive suites that are generally booked the entire year, you’re in for an unparalleled experience that will evoke sentiments of nostalgia and stir the imagination. Suites also have modern amenities including air-conditioning, satellite / dish TV, electric iron / kettle, Internet (Wi-Fi) access and hot water. Laze around by the sunny garden side pool, indulge in a long siesta whilst monkeys cavort in the lush massive trees or relax on old-world rosewood chairs as you down a fiery coconut feni or two with the birds chirping overhead and you will truly appreciate what the true Goan susegado lifestyle is all about.
