Marbella Guesthouse - Goa
to the Marbella Guest House - The Marbella Guest House stays open
during the monsoon months, when most other holiday accommodations are
closed. Goa attracts many people during high season, but to visit in
the monsoon is to experience the true beauty, free from the hustle and
bustle the high season brings.
Marbella Guest house is not suitable for children under the age of 12
as we do not have the appropriate facilities.
This Magnificent Guest House was built with a Portuguese colonial
mansion in mind, but taking a few creative liberties, to form a rare
blend of poetic architecture. Colonial and Indian antiques mix with
comfortable cane furniture to create the perfect luxury for your
holiday in Goa. The guest house is situated at the end of a valley,
cutting into the headlands, surrounded by the Arabian Sea and the
Mandovi river. The area is ideally suited for walks and bird watching.
The 16th century portuguese Fort Aguada is just a 10 minutes stroll up
the hill. The nearest beach is just a 15 minutes walk away.
Transportation in the form of rented bikes, cars, jeeps, or taxis is
ready available, to explore the more distant reaches of Goa's beauty.

An old-style place where new-style people set up for weeks to write
and dream about never leaving. Marbella is a beautifully restored
Portuguese villa hidden down a quiet lane. This is the Portuguese
dream that Goan fantasy was built on. The six rooms of Marbella
manifest unique and exotic style.
The Rajasthani suite is spacious and positively regal, though even in
the smaller Garden room you can anchor your pile of papers with a
heavy bronze ornament and throw open wood-framed windows onto sunlit
trees and breeze. The white sheets are so fitting against the white
walls that you'll want to wear them to the mosaic-tiled bathroom and
out onto your balcony. If you can't afford the penthouse suite you'll
be just as happy when you're ensconced in colonial grandeur in one of
the smaller ground-floor rooms that opens to the high-walled, densely
Marbella is appropriately positioned on a quiet street where even the
dogs are too relaxed to bark. Amazingly for something of this
undeniable elegance, you won't catch so much as a whiff of pretension
in the fresh air.
