Situated in the relaxed south Goan seaside village of Cavelossim, the Radisson Blu Resort makes an ideal starting point for exploring the area's rich history and natural sights. It’s cushioned by a long white sandy beach dotted with beach shacks, and a main road home to market stalls and a charming cream-and-yellow Church of the Holy Cross. Although the pace of life is unhurried, it’s just half-an-hour’s drive from the hustle-and-bustle of historic Margao, a 45-minute drive from Goa International Airport in Dabolim, and a 30-minute drive from the railway station.
The hotel’s Sohum Spa offers guests an array of therapies and amenities, such as western and Ayurvedic treatments, meditation and yoga and an in–house gymnasium.
Guests have 132 rooms to choose from, each with beautiful views of the sea, manicured gardens and pool. Perfect for business or leisure guests, rooms include work desks, high-speed internet, LCD TVs and rain showers. The decor is a combination of clean fresh lines and vibrant splashes of colour. Start the day with a free newspaper if you’re staying in a suite, which also offer separate seating areas.
The resort’s just minutes from the clean and calm Cavelossim beach, one of the most beautiful in south Goa. Just 30 minutes drive away is the town of Margao, which comes with a mish-mash of Portuguese and Indian architecture. Right in the centre is the whitewashed 17th-century Holy Spirit Church, while next door is the old colonial mansion Seven Gables House, a bright red building with a row of wooden balconies. A stylish colonnade runs beneath the red-brick city hall, while banana and mango trees line the paths in the nearby municipal garden.
Enjoy, coffee, Western and Indian cuisine at the Upper Deck, as well as live music in the evenings. Lucio with its open kitchen, serves traditional Goan-Portuguese dishes, while the elegant Shandong offers modern Oriental dishes. Imaginative cocktails are on offer at the trendy Sagres bar.
