Room Format : Villas with individual 4 rooms & small cottages close to beach


Room amenities : Mini-refrigerator, 24 hour warm water, AC, 22 inch LCD TV


Other options : Outside the hotel on the main Baga - Calangute road you would find ample options for food & beverages including Smoking Joe's, Subway & Tibetian food, & Indian veg/nonveg food.

Rs. 5200 /day + Rs. 800 / child (over 6 years) for Prime Deluxe room inclusive of breakfast


Best Feature : Located on the prime baga calagute road on one side & walk-able distance to the beach through the property....

2) Bar & restaurants


3) Kerala Ayurvedic center


4) Good staff & fast service


5) Live music/karoke every evening


Negatives :


1) Paid airport pickup & drop


2) Limited menu in the restaurant


3) 12 pm check-in time


Crowd Type: Foreigners from UK, Russian republic (Ukraine, Kazakistan etc), few Danes & Americans, rest being Indians


The hotel is located at 100 meters from the main Baga Calangute road, the small lane has mostly Kasmiri owned shops selling handicrafts & owners trying to flirt with foreign ladies :-( . Indians are given 2nd grade treatment at these shops


The best part of the hotel is the spacious layout with wide green lawns & palm trees in the front & around the villas.


The rear side of the hotel opens into the baga beach & has multiple shacks lined up. The tourists can laze around the shacks for entire day by buying a beer & snacks. The best part is that the beach is not crowded in this stretch as at main Baga & Calangute areas. One of the best places I have stayed in Goa


My recommendation :  I recommend this to families with small kids since this very safe location & children can roam around the hotel safely.


My stay in November at Colonia Santa Maria over 4 nights was a memorable experience !!
