Around the World with BP : Goa 11 July 2018

Travel with us to our favourite cities around India.

Laidback haven or overcrowded party state, Goa is quite embedded in the ethos of India. Though we do enjoy the sunny climes, we like those hidden parts of Goan history that lend a particular charming quality a tad bit more…

VISIT

For a quick walk down memory lane, head to Barrio das Fontainhas, an old Latin Quarter in Panjim. With tiny streets and colourful old homes with tiled roofs, it reflects the Portuguese influence on Goa and is recognized as a heritage zone by the UNESCO.

In February, an arts and culture festival takes place where the old homes are transformed into art galleries with local art, music and dance.

STAY

Siolim House is a 350 year old heritage hotel, built in 1675. Dating from the earliest times of Portuguese settlement in Goa, the hotel transports one to an era gone by.

EAT

With whimsical decor and fine fare, A Reverie is a lovely spot to end a day in Goa at.

SHOP

Housed in a heritage bungalow in Assagao, Project Cafe Goa is an experiential design space. Featuring a mix of design, food & decor, the space is a restaurant, shop & hotel all in one. Plus, you can explore our 8 fragrances right there!
