If you want modern gleaming marble and shiny stainless steel go somewhere else. If you want hype, and noise and partying go somewhere else. If you want to hide away with other tourists from the people of Goa go somewhere else. If you don't like dogs or finding cute frogs in your bathroom go somewhere else. If you want a...

Charlotte, Simon, John and staff, really make you feel welcome and nothing is too much trouble. The food cooked here is a really nice quality and fresh, the steak was to die for. Breakfast is at a large alter table where everybody eats together, which is fine, if you don't mind being a couple in the midst of a rather...

We returned from Goa a week ago. This is a unique, charming place to stay, eat, relax and meet new friends. We loved the relaxed atmosphere, setting, great food and hospitality from the team, led by Simon and Charlotte. Massage and yoga was wonderful. The dogs added to the fun and just 30 minutes from the airport - what more...

This hotel is just what I adore, laid back, attractive and eccentric. The staff cater to all whims and fancies, the pool is bracing for hangovers and the bar is a great place to meet your fellow guests. this is not a hotel for shrinking violets. The rooms are all different and due to the somewhat haphazard nature of the...

I stayed for a long weekend at Vivenda and it felt like I had spent a week unwinding and relaxing - such is the serenity and charm of this eclectically and lovingly restored Portuguese style house. Our stay was during the height of the monsoon. Be prepared for it to rain ALOT but the happiness is in just kicking back...

Vivenda is a Special Safe Oasis.I stayed for 3 nights and after 1 felt like I had been there for a week. The individual rooms of which I started in 2 are exquisite and on par with any European boutique city hotel experience. The staff led by John simply couldn't be happier and friendlier.. Many are locals...its a quiet place...

We struck gold with this heritage Portuguese style villa that is tucked away in a secluded corner of Goa, close to Majorda beach. The pool and verandas of Vivenda look even better in person than they do in pictures. Each room is individually themed with an eclectic collection of furniture and art. The whole house has been charmingly decorated and...

Love little gem, I keep on going back to this charming place. Simon and Charlotte are great hosts, very engage with their guests. I was there a couple of weeks ago, and I like the atmosphere, the fact that you can interact with the hosts and with other guests.

Lovely main building with interesting and varied rooms around it, a charming pool and even more charming bar. But my room was not clean (thick dust on various surfaces, grit on bathroom floor and gunk in drain) and a few in our party had clogged shower or sink drains (one that totally flooded the bathroom). The breakfast would be much...
