Addicted to Goa but fed up of plush resort holidays? You need to rent a villa. The newest on the block is Villa Morjim, a five-bedroom bungalow located 300 metres from Morjim beach which has now become famous as a nesting site for Olive Ridley turtles. Built in classic Goan style, the architecture employs traditional materials such as red laterite, Mangalorean tiles and wooden rafters. The house, located on the banks of the Chapora river and surrounded on three sides by water, is let out only as an entire unit — perfect for a group of eight to 10 people looking for a quiet Goan idyll. Breakfast is included in the tariff and not other meals, but you get to use the services of two chefs who can cook everything from Goan to Continental to North Indian (buy your seafood straight from the fishwoman who’ll come calling every day). Other facilities included in the rental price: airport transfers, television in the family room, housekeeping services, laundry, Internet connection.
