I stayed for 2 weeks in Hotel Soraya's exquisitely decorated bungalow, which is located at the end of the garden at the back of the main house - an authentic Goan villa in Siolim, North Goa.

Surrounded by tropical vegetation and bright pink flowers, the bungalow has its own table and chairs out the front and loungers out the back so it is really self contained and very private. The main bedroom sports a grand four poster bed and the rest of the apartment is tasteful and stylish.

There is a recent addition to Hotel Soraya's paradisical grounds - a fantastic swimming pool, so if you don't fancy a trip to the beach or you want a rest from all the craziness, it's the perfect place to grab a book and catch some rays.

And if you love dogs, then you won't just be in paradise, you will be in heaven too, as Atul & Pierre have four dogs (2 Dalmatians and 2 street dogs) which have been rescued from the streets. Like me, Atul is a animal lover through and through and spends a lot of his time and money helping street dogs and cats and providing them food during the monsoon season when all the tourists have gone home. He is a kind hearted man, very polite and provides excellent service to all his guests.

Give Hotel Soraya a go, you won't regret it!

We have stayed in the Bungalow 2 or 3 times and will be returning in February 2011.
The accommodation is very spacious, with plenty of wardrobe space.

It is totally self contained, and private, very quiet and comfortable and you are surrounded by a beautiful garden and a pool which was built after our last visit.
Breakfasts are a real treat and Pierre and Atul are the most wonderful, artistic hosts. The staff are friendly, helpful and efficient.
If you are looking for somewhere quiet but unconventional then this is for you.
Only downside we found was there were few restaurants within walking distance.
It is extremely reasonable - you would pay through the nose elsewhere for the same level of comfort and ambiance.

My hosts, Atul and Pierre, run a down to earth inn. Breakfast is a personalized, sit down meal along with locally prepared preserves. A car with knowledgeable driver who knows the back roads and local destinations is available with prior notice. Down the road, the local Siolim bar owners give you an in-town treatment as residents of Hotel Soraya and the feeling of being a tourist is downplayed. There is a chalet structure that sits on the grounds of the property, which is detached from the inn property and is ideal for a couple. Bicycles are available for hire for those who wish to engage in mild exercise along with a swimming pool (that was in construction at the time of visit by this traveler) in the lovely garden surrounding that reminds one of the tropical destination where one can relax under the open sky. Also, this is a pet friendly property.

Seldom do we return so often to the same accommodation, but this place is so very different. A little piece of paradise in a gorgeous setting. If you want to stay in spacious surroundings with fantastic staff, experience typical Goan life away from the crowds this is the place for you. As soon as we get home we book our next visit. The garden is amazing and a haven to return to after a day out. There are now a few small scale restaurants and a cake shop to tempt you, fresh fruit and veg stalls line the road. Do visit the market held at the old ferry point. The lovely northern Goa beaches are just a short scooter/taxi drive away and Mapusa with its fun market can be reached in 15 minutes. If you want to get away from big hotels, this is the place for you, if you want to be pampered by having breakfast individually prepared and served, go and be spoiled. If you want a tranquil heaven after a busy day out, go relax and chill. If you want to be welcomed by friendly locals and share in village life, go and experience the real Goa.

Room Tip: We adore the bugalow but the big house is lovely and great for a family group or even two couples

I stayed here with family and friends, had a wonderful time, its a charming old Goan villa, restored beautifully, with a fantastic swimming pool. There were 6 or us who took over the house and it felt like home, we spent hours in the swimming pool in the gorgeous gardens. The breakfasts are yummy, they give Goan specialities and or english breakfast. We will be back. Its a great place to share with friends and or family.

I booked this hotel with my girlfriend in April 2011 for two weeks. Atul and Pierre and the staff were very friendly and really made our stay easy and enjoyable. We arranged a couple of trips from the hotel and this was all done with minimum of fuss and each experience very enjoyable. The hotel is not in the main touristy drag in Goa and is very relaxed and more Goan, if that makes sense. I would certainly reccomend to friends as a place to stay if you want to relax in Goa. We stayed in the bungalow on the grounds and it was perfect for us. The main house is stunning and we have already thought of asking friends if they want to come with us the next time we visit Atul and Pierre. Thanks...
