Best Places To Stay in Goa

There was a time, when I thought that the world ends where the sea and sky meet, where the sun drowns into that ocean, where the life freezes and the boat can’t sail through – but then I travelled to GOA and realized how foolish I was and how beautiful it is to find that, this very thought of existence dies in that moment when the sun meets the sea – this moment is where the life exists and all the human science breathes freedom, the moment where the life begins as it searches for the ever wandering thoughts, submerging them deep down into that orange sea of serenity. GOA is such a beauty, as it revives you into a new life of something amazing, and something that is beyond words and beyond your imagination. One can easily find the best and most unique places to stay in Goa. Goa is a tiny emerald land on the west coast of India, immingle of Indian and Portuguese cultures with a hint of western music and the melodies of jazz.


It is a place paused in time, a beach side hippy retreat, with old tiled roofs falling over each other clinging to the beam by their nails, Portuguese colonial beautiful architectures, the risen earth pathways through the vibrant green fields, the lost poems at the beach during the high tides, with beers and beach shacks, a rare treasure where the life dwells over the array of unperturbed golden-sand beaches, narrow and quaint streets, trance parties, sun, sea, seafood and spirituality. I have often ventured into the lands of unknown and the treks of nowhere, into the sea of eternity and the sand of time, but nowhere have I found a land of such treasure, a land that defines every adjective in the dictionary of a wanderlust – Goa! My second home, as the poems now know where to find me, a place that will make you kiss the sand and sea again and again. Beauty would have been so dull if nobody ever stopped and took the time out to appreciate what lies in the sea-sand-sun of GOA. Tree-houses, beach-side shacks and pool villas are some of the best places to stay in Goa.
