Where to stay:
The Leela Goa
Why we love it:
The Leela Goa isn't your everyday hotel. Its 75 acres sprawl across an oasis of lagoons and lush gardens and include a 12-hole golf course, 24-hour casino and internationally acclaimed spa.
Each of the 185 rooms has its own private balcony which either looks out over one of the idyllic lagoons or across the sea
. If you can bear to drag yourself away from the luxury of your room, head out to one of the seven restaurants and bars which include Portuguese, Italian and local Goan cuisine.
Guests can also relax by taking part in one of the many water sports offered at the hotel's shores or take advantage of a meditation or yoga class
. Our bags are already packed.
