The O Resort and Spa Hotel

Zen-like calm is the order of the day at The O Resort and Spa Hotel. The relaxed atmosphere is everywhere, whether you’re by the infinity pool, in the tropical gardens or in the sauna! For extra relaxation, you can also book a treatment.

Breakfast is a buffet affair with a mix of cooked, continental and Indian food. For evening meals, there’s also a beachfront a la carte. After dinner, there’s a quiet lounge bar but, if you’re looking for something livelier, you’re only a short stroll from Candolim.

Overview of Candolim

Families, couples and party people are all welcome in Goa. The state’s sometimes known as the ‘Pearl of the Orient’, and as soon as you arrive on Goa’s sun-kissed shores, you’ll see exactly why.

On your holiday to Goa, you’ll spend most of your time on the sand. Most of the state’s 105km coastline is covered in crushed sands and there’s a beach to suit every mood. Head into the lively towns to explore and you’ll experience a sensory overload thanks to the rhythm of modern life and the beautiful scent of spices.

Things to do in Goa

Guests at The O Resort and Spa Hotel really love its location. The beach is one of Candolim’s biggest attractions and you can reach it by wandering through the hotel grounds. It’s unique in Goa because it’s away from the buzz of the city, so it’s a calming space. It’s still backed by plenty of restaurants though, so you can enjoy a beautiful evening meal with sunset views. After dark, beach parties take place here, so it gets a little lively.

The centre of Candolim is a 15-minute walk away. It’s a paradise for shoppers and as you stroll around the streets, you’ll come across clothing, artwork, handmade jewellery and brightly-patterned fabric.

With a stay at The O Resort and Spa Hotel, you can enjoy a take-things-easy holiday underneath the ever-present sun.

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.
