The Acacia Hotel and Spa

When you stay at The Acacia Hotel and Spa, sand, shops and restaurants are all nearby.

All the rooms here are dressed in a palette of neutrals with dark-wooden furnishings. There are special little touches everywhere as well, such as bathrobes, slippers and bathroom miniatures. Room service also runs 24/7, too.

Outside, the pool is sunken into the atrium and has a retractable roof, meaning you can take a dip come rain or shine. The pool’s also surrounded by a smattering of loungers, but for the best sunbathing experience, head to the roof terrace.

For meals, there’s a buffet restaurant where you can order from the international menu 24 hours a day, plus two a la carte numbers.

Overview of Candolim

Goa is a destination where east meets west. On a holiday to Goa, you’ll experience unique architecture, an intoxicating blend of Portuguese and Indian cultures, and a range of seafood curries that will blow your mind.

Most people flock to Goa for the beautiful beaches. From relaxing days sunbathing to adventurous paragliding options, Goa’s beaches really do offer something for everyone. By night, you can even pop down to the beach for a party on the sand.

Once you leave The Acacia Hotel and Spa and set your sights on the sands, the rest of your holiday will be set in stone.

Things to do in Goa

When it comes to location, it’s very difficult to beat The Acacia Hotel and Spa. The beach is only a five-minute walk away and you’re only a stone’s throw away from some of Candolim’s best beach shacks, restaurants and bars. Here you can experience some of the finest seafood curries in all of Goa.

If you’d like to explore some of Goa’s storied history, then Fort Aguada is only two kilometres away from the hotel. This 17th-century fort stands on the beach at Candolim, offering a glimpse into Goa’s past, and provides some of the best views in the state.

If you’re looking for a laid-back holiday packed with beautiful beaches, gorgeous food and an intriguing mixture of cultures, Goa is the place to be.

Resort Summary

When many people think of taking Goa holidays along the coastline, trance parties and jam-packed streets come to mind. But holidays in Candolim are wonderfully laid-back, still enjoying all the same scenery as its neighbouring resort Calangute but with the volume turned down. Wedged along the coast in northern Goa, Candolim is a haven for relaxation types, as the only thing that’s expected of you is to stretch out along the beach beside the Arabian Sea.

Located at the tail end of the beach connected to Calangute and Baga Beach, Candolim is the easy-going side of this trio’s holiday coin. When you aren’t at the beach, you’ll be wandering through local boutiques or pausing for a curry packed with fresh seafood. And if you’re in the mood for something a little livelier, Goa’s capital city is just on the horizon.
