I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the staff at Nilaya for making us
so comfortable and so happy when we were there few weeks ago.
Nilaya is an amazing hotel, but the most wonderful thing about it is the People
that Run it, the sense of belonging and pride that the staff at Nilaya have is
awe inspiring.

I wish them all the very best and hopefully we will visit soon.

The nilaya is a beautiful hotel with lovely staff who are very happy to help at any time, if you ask! They will not intrude on you though so do ask! There is a lovely retreat feel to it with no phones or television, but thankfully good wifi by the pool! And one room has a satellite dish if that's what you should want. Anthony made us an amazing Christmas dinner and dinner and breakfast is lovely every day anyway! The blue room is an excellent place to chill out and we had a great Christmas morning in there! The pool is fantastic and kept very clean every day! Linda was a very accommodating host and does an excellent job of keeping the hotel in ship shape! The massage treatments and steam room were also excellent! The Nilaya is Goa's best kept secret!

I have had the most amazing time at Nilaya this year. It is a beautiful property tucked away on a hill, quiet, serene and so, so relaxed. Our stay in Goa was the best holiday we have had in a long long time, especially in Goa where all hotels are so commercial and crowded. Nilaya has a wonderful staff, ever helpful and polite and Lumen, the manager is the sweetest hospitality person we have ever met, who was there for every need and every question with a smile on her face. The GM is a delightful chef who has a superb menu available for us to tuck away throughout the day and the sunset view from Nilaya was wonderful with a chilled beer in hand. Would recommend a stay at Nilaya when you want to be a part of paradise and yet away from crowds.

Room Tip: We stayed in the blue room but all rooms are beautiful with its own characteristics, each one uniquely designed. Some are huge and some are smaller, but I would want to stay in a different room every time I visit Nilaya, just to enjoy each one!

A very private hotel with large luxurious rooms, impeccable service and delicious food. The hotel is very close to baga beach but still manages to remain romantic, quiet and serene. A perfect place to spend time with your family and loved ones, especially if you are looking to get away from the usual over crowded and boisterous crowds of Goa.

Everything at Nilaya was perfect, the room, the service, the staff, the food (the chef was so gracious, nothing was too much trouble), the pool, the monkeys, peacocks, beautiful birds, the massages, the yoga. I could have stayed a week, but sadly we only only 2 nights, three days and no problem with a late check out.

This is a superb luxury hotel in a stunning setting.

Room Tip: Stayed in "The Fire Room" with a balcony which enabled us to see the monkeys at around 7.30am jumping from tree to tree, just in front and above us - so exciting, you could actually see their faces. Big room with an enormous bed.
