Stay at the backyards in Goa

Far away from the frenzied tourist haunts, experience the burst of life that is Goa at Olaulim Backwaters. Five rustic cottages unique in size and decor share one similarity- they are all in harmony with nature, each making the best of locally extracted elements like bamboo, local stone, coconut wood and palm leaves. The cottages are all air-cooled, constructed to best allow the natural sunlight and Goan winds to filter through.

Explore the shimmering backwaters as your kayak creates hushed ripples on the water’s surface. Cycle down the vibrant lanes, or ask the in-resident Goan owners to get you in touch with eco-conscious adventure sports providers. The family itself is warm and welcoming, in the true Goan style of hospitality. The meals you will eat are exquisite and unmatched in authenticity, sourced from fresh seafood and locally grown vegetables, prepped on a traditional wood-fire.

While the scenic backwaters sustain you, major beaches are a 30-minute drive away in case they beckon. With your meals served by the poolside, enjoy a scenery painted by the trees and Goan sky, with the sights and sounds of authentic Goan life to keep you company at Olaulim.
