The Alila Diwa Goa:
“Alila Diwa Goa brings a refreshingly unique resort experience to Gonsua Beach in Majorda, just 20 minutes from Goa Dabolim International Airport. Set amidst the serene landscape of lush, verdant rice plantations flowing towards the Arabian Sea, relaxation reigns at this Goa Resort. Enter a sanctuary of contemporary elegance inspired by traditional Goan design − steeply pitched roofs, ceiling high columns, cool verandas and tranquil courtyards. Whether enjoying an intimate couple’s retreat or a getaway for the entire family, the 153 rooms and suites at this Goa 5 star resort offer havens of space, comfort and serenity, while the resort’s new Diwa Club is an enclave of exclusivity, boasting its own lap pool with an open air Jacuzzi and hot tub.
Set amid lush paddy fields, Alila Diwa Goa blends the best of contemporary Goan architecture with rich cultural traditions to fashion an extraordinary experience in luxury destination travel. High pitched roofs and wide verandahs combine with the subtle shades of teak, local red laterite stone, polished Kota stone and terrazzo flooring, open-sided walls and brass lanterns, which bestow a soft magical glow at night.
The interiors are designed to capture the Goan ethos through simple furniture with clean lines. Rooms and suites have been designed such that they flow out towards the natural environs. The simple elegance of pale wood and cream surroundings are offset by latticed screens and luxury linens in shades of brown and russet. The public spaces too feature classic Goan touches, such as the art installation in the Edge Bar by contemporary Goan sculptor Subodh Kerkar.”
