• the real goan living!

    MANGA is an idyllic getaway that gives you a glimpse of the regular Goan village life. Waking up to birdsong and the honk of the local ‘poi’ vendor to experiencing verdant paddy fields in the monsoon, you are immersed in tranquillity. Away from the ‘happening’ Goa and yet accessible to it, if a holiday is meant to recoup, reenergise and most importantly retune with yourself and your loved ones, then this is a perfect spot for you.

ABOUT MANGA

A tastefully restored Goan home, located in the picturesque village of Panarim in Aldona,  Manga  (Mango in Portuguese) is named after the big mango tree in the villa that generously offers a fabulous crop of delicious mangoes every summer.

Walking through the village, you come across many mango, coconut and cashew trees that dot the landscape.

Hear the crowing of the cockerels and if fortunate, catch a passing glimpse of the occasional peacock in the early morning mist! Located 30 minutes away from the nearest beach in Candolim / Anjuna, it is this quaint, village experience that we know you will enjoy.

The fields that surround Panarim belong to the local community and are used to cultivate rice and vegetables for their own consumption.  Chillies, onions, spinach, gourd, red amarnath and beans are grown in the summer and winter. In the monsoon, paddy is planted and the fields turn a lush green.

Welcome to the Republic of Panarim!

Guest Reviews

We stayed here with our two children and they loved the open spaces and the pool. We really loved the carefully restored house with modern touches ! The walks around the village, especially in the monsoon were refreshing as was the local food!

Taste the real Goa! lovely place tucked away in the village with all the modern amenities. Great hosts, always helpful and give a personalised feel to the space. Would definitely recommend it to friends and will stay again!

Perfect hosts and place if you are going with friends for rest and relaxation. The villa is of old Portuguese style with a touch of modern art. It is value for money. Im sure no one will regret their stay at Manga. Go relax, have fun. The best part of the villa is the veranda and the pool.
