The tagline “Romancing the Sea” is truly befitting “O Pescarado, an Indy Resort”. Apart from that, one can also say “Seduced by the Sea”. The reason behind this? You practically live above the sea.
Nestled amidst the rugged beauty of Dona Paula is a different and serene Goa. With a limited number of shops and beaches around, Dona Paula is a quiet corner away from the overcrowded beaches of Goa. O Pescarado, an Indy resort, is a pride of the Indy Group, a small luxury boutique hotel chain with their equally appealing sister property at Fort Kochi named “Old Court House”.
ROOMS: With nothing but the sea on all three sides, it practically has sea views from all the rooms. The Harbour View rooms have huge bay windows opening to the ocean and the now restricted Dona Paula jetty. One can see the changing colours from deep blue to turquoise and orange right from your gentle bed. While the verandah hangs above the rugged rocks, the waves crash beneath your window and seem to touch you during high tides. For sea lovers, it's really difficult to recommend a better room than this one.
FOOD: Even though you can’t expect something outright extraordinary for the price you pay, it's decent and cheap. They have a range of cuisines to try from, Chinese, Goan and Indian. The breakfast spread is modest but delicious with a combination of Indian, continental and south Indian options.
SERVICE: Amazing to say the least! The ever smiling boys and girls are always there for any need at any hour of the day and night. They are kind and extremely well versed with your tastes and preferences once you let them know about them.
All in all, if there's something which can draw you again and again to this age old, modest yet luxurious hotel, it has to be its spectacular location. The prices are a steal deal for the quality of rooms they offer.
The next time you want to witness a quieter Goa with a tinge of exclusive luxury, head to Dona Paula and “O Pescardo”. I am sure you shall thank me for it as you sip a delicious sunset cocktail sitting beside their sea facing pool and bar, with nothing but the ocean breeze around you!
