When someone mentions about planning a trip to Goa, I always go back to memories of our awesome Goa trip. And, it was 4 years back but still, whenever we plan a new trip anywhere, we remember this one.
It was our best trip till date and the main credit goes to the resort where we stayed- The ‘DONA SYLVIA BEACH RESORT’ at Cavelossim Beach in South Goa. It is away from the hustle-bustle of the city and makes it perfect for a relaxed trip with kids.
We planned a 4 days 5 nights trip with all meal included package. We received a warm welcome at the entrance when we reached the resort. The first thing which caught our attention was the lush green gardens and landscapes.
As it was almost lunchtime, we went for the lunch buffet and food was really good. There were many different options for vegetarian and non-vegetarian. Kids also loved it as there were live pasta counter and many such options.
They have air-conditioned villas /bungalows and apartments. We stayed in a cottage room which had that old world charm to it. A big verandah and an open area in the front with nice sit-out added extra charm to it. The staff was also very friendly and helpful.
The best thing was our sea facing rooms with a lot of greenery in the front. Beach was visible from our room and at a walkable distance from our room.
Cavelossim beach is a not crowded at all and a very neat and clean beach. It is a perfect place for a relaxed holiday and if you are going with kids and don’t want to run around.
As it was our first trip to Goa, we wanted to see North Goa too. So, the second day we planned a visit to the church, Fort Aguada and other beaches of North Goa.
The third day we hired a scooter to explore the town. It was fun and a different experience. The scooters and bikes are available in front of the resort. There is a place nearby to enjoy water sports too.
Next few days we just chilled at the resort. They have many activities planned for everyone in the evening. Kids enjoyed a magic show and their entertainment room which had toys and books for kids.
There are also few shops available outside if you want to do some shopping and take back some souvenirs for family and friends.
When you are travelling with kids, the first thing you want to make sure is ‘Comfort’ and Dona Sylvia took care of that in all aspects.
Also, all meals included package is the best option when travelling with kids as you don’t have to run around for food with kids. There are so many options in the menu that you don’t have to worry about kids not eating on a trip.
The best thing about the resort is its quiet location and easily accessible beach. I think we have a reason to go back to Goa now. Dona Sylvia made a fun and relaxed holiday possible for us.
Spectacular surroundings, well-maintained gardens and a walking distance to the beach was the high point for us.
Resort, food, rooms, staff, and location- 5 stars from us. 🙂
We are already looking forward to going back and enjoy.
