Super size villa 6 Bedrooms, goan style, stayed there for 3 nights, and check in at 3 am early morning or late night still henry welcome us us very well, beach at 50 m and main road is also walkable distance. lots of restaurant and bars nearby. Henry and his team of Laxmi, Gauri and Joyce are excellent ever smiling and ready to help you for whatever you need.we were a group of 20 pax with 9 kids they helped us to put extra beds for the kids in the bedroom where there were already 2 double beds so that the kids could stay together. kids had a blast in the room and in the pool area. food was amazing we had good breakfast and the poori bhaji and goan style curry and tadka dal was very good and tasty.they have good collection of library books and board games and carrom for children to play and of course the pool. they have bose docking station for playing your favourite music by the dining table which ever looks the pool.overall our experience was excellent and we highly recommend for friends and families who would like to stay together and enjoy goan style hospitality would definitely visit again.
This is the most amazing beautiful place to stay. Loved it so much, would never stay anywhere else. The house has been decorated to a very high standard, with beautiful pieces of furniture and very comfortable beds. It is spotless and the staff are so helpful and kind. Nothing is too much trouble.
You will not be disappointed it is worth every penny , cannot wait to go back .
We could not have had a better holiday at the Villa Alina.
The Villa is beautiful and the renovations done on the pool area are amazing. I really like how there is a family history surrounding the villa and that there are photos and memorabilia of the villa & family's past for us to feel a part of.
The hosts are so helpful and generous, we didn't have to think about logistics / planning / transportation at all as Julia and Henry were on hand to organise on our behalf.
Laxmi makes the most amazing eggs and fresh fruit picked from the gardens for breakfast!!
The location is perfect - 2 minute walk to beach, cafes and shops. It is a bustling area however when you are in the villa grounds surrounded by Palm trees, you are in complete privacy & tranquility - so you really can have the best of both worlds.
We went on some cool trips out to the Spice plantation, Panjim and Old Goa which were fab recommendations. I would also really recommend visiting the restaurant on holiday Street by the Villa called A Reverie, it was an amazing experience.
It was nice to be able to chill out by the pool and head to the beach shacks whenever we fancied. 10/10 we cannot WAIT to come back!
PS. we were only 2 of us but I think this would be a really great place to come as a big group as it is so large and can easily cater for 14 people :)
This is our second stay at Villa Alina in Goa and again it did not disappoint - in fact it gets better each time. Villa Alina is perfect accommodation for a large group with very close proximity to the beach, restaurants, shopping and spas - though you tend not the stray to far from that amazing infinity edge pool! The villas staff are wonderful and nothing is to much trouble. They greet you on arrival with flowers, cold towels and drinks and are there to wave goodbye when you leave. All this hospitality has made us fall in love with Goa and we cannot wait for our next visit.
Villa Alina is a delight. julia Nazareth looked after us so well. all our needs were catered for. the villa is beautiful, the pool and verandah are a haven away from the heat. the staff were fantastic and discreet. we will never forget our stay at Villa Alina. five stars from us. thanks so much. JO and ROBERT PRICE.
From breakfast to evening meal (if requested) the staff were there to look after our every need... a choice of excursions taken care of by management staff... chilled and comfortable around the pool and a short walk to the beach ... the atmospheric feel of Villa Alina was perfect for our 16 strong crew...!!!! loved our stay and can't wait to return...
We loved every moment of our stay in the beautiful Villa Alina. The location is excellent...we spent days by the pool and days by the beach which is only 4 minutes walk away. The villa itself is hidden away behind palm trees so is quiet and peaceful during the day. Julia, the owner, is there to help organise day trips and taxis to different beaches. We visited Ashvem beach, the night market and did a boat trip on the Mandovi river fishing for crabs and eating them for our lunch.
The staff at the villa - Henry and Laxmi are so helpful and prepare wonderful breakfasts with the best dal i ate in India :) On the night we arrived we had a Goan dinner prepared by the staff (pre-ordered) which is was absolutely delicious.
We came with six friends and we all want to come back again as soon as possible. Wonderful place.
