The Postcard Velha

Goa |

Only a 15-minute walk from Old Goa’s historic centre, the Postcard Velha is a serene hilltop boutique hotel surrounded by lush gardens and stunning views.

Away from Goa’s famous beachside bustle, the Postcard Velha offers somewhere to recharge your batteries and relax. The contemporary villa has been designed to incorporate modern decor and facilities, while maintaining elements of the classic Portuguese-influenced style and charm typical of the region’s villa properties.

Each of the six rooms has its own character. Crisp white walls open up the space creating a bright ambiance, while richly carved woods, vibrant traditional fabrics and carefully chosen ornamental pieces bring in the area’s rich culture and history.

The larger suites have private terraces leading out to lush lawned gardens, and cosy seating areas where you can curl up with a freshly brewed cup of coffee to enjoy the sublime peace and quiet. The bathrooms are bright and stylish.

A welcoming and attentive staff elevate the service to that which you might expect from the region’s priciest resorts, yet with a homely, bohemian overlay which feels instantly relaxing. Enjoy a selection of beautifully prepared Indian dishes with a hint of French influence, as well as plenty of fresh seafood.

Explore the architecture and history of Old Goa’s renowned churches, including the beautiful Church of Our Lady of the Mount, with which the hotel shares its hilltop location, and return to the hotel each afternoon to take tea on the terrace and admire the breathtaking rural landscape.

We Say

A contemporary boutique with top level service and a blissfully peaceful hillside location.
