South Goa - the Leela Kempinski Hotel

South Goa - near the hotel and the beach

Much has been written about Goa: it's Portuguese history, the take-over by the hippy brigade, the drugs, sun,sand and sea. But most of that was about the northern half, and so we decided to take the opportunity to visit the quieter southern half and have a few days relaxation after the prettyy hectic travelling around Rajasthan.

The choice of hotel was fairly hit and miss, but we were encouraged to see that the British Airways inflight magazine described it as "the best hotel in Goa". It was certainly a lovely quiet place with a glorious beach fringed by palm trees and wonderful sunsets.

Admittedly we saw very little of the State, but what we did was enough not to want to go back (but then we aren't devotees of sand and sunbathing). But a great place to relax.
