Features
Great design, Great views

Built 10 years ago as a trio of private homes by the granddaughter of Antonio Xavier Trindade, Goa’s greatest painter, the property was converted last year into a nine-room boutique hotel. Still flamboyantly decorated with the owner’s selection of antiques and artworks, Ahilya by the Sea feels less like a hotel and more like the retreat of a generous and worldly friend. Wake to a delicious breakfast by the pool, overlooking the Arabian Sea. Make your plans for the day (a stroll around the pretty colonial center of Panjim, the state capital, just across the river? A visit to the magnificent churches of Old Goa, a short drive inland?). And then promptly put them off for a couple of hours when the sound of crashing waves reminds you exactly where it is you are.
