Just 20 minutes from the golden, palm-fringed beaches that Goa is so famous for Casa Colvale is a small boutique hotel with just 12 rooms. Surrounded by natural beauty and views of magical islands and gently flowing rivers this small boutique hotel can be found on the unspoilt backwaters of the River Chapora in North Goa. Soak up the sun by one of the two pools, take a yoga class or a trip to the beach or, as many guests at Casa Colvale find themselves doing, simply relax and do nothing.
Guests can be as lazy or as active as they like during their stay at Casa Colvale. Many arrive with the intention of doing alot and end up doing very little such is the pace of life at this little gem. Laze by one of the two beautiful swimming pools or take a yoga class on the riverside deck followed by a pampering massage. There is some great fishing here as well as bird watching and if you are lucky you might catch a glimpse of a crocodile or two! Beaches are just 20 minutes away by speedboat and cruises of the backwaters can be organised in a traditional houseboat. For those foodies who want to learn some Goan kitchen secrets, cooking courses can easily be arranged.
The food at Casa Colvale is fresh and full of flavour and includes traditional Goan dishes as well as classical western dishes. Freshly caught fish is grilled on the BBQ and for a real treat the tandoor oven is fired up for some tasty North Indian fare.
