Marinha Dourada nestles amongst lakes, rice fields, and salt pans close to the Baga River and the village of Arpora. This traditional hotel is the perfect place to hit the pause button in scenic surroundings. Add into the mix stylish guest rooms, authentic regional dining, and vibrant locally-inspired entertainment and you have the perfect recipe for your Goa holiday.
Looking to relax? Pull up a sun lounger by the poolside to sunbathe, hop on the shuttle bus to Baga Beach, or escape to the spa for a massage. Feeling active? Partner up for a game of tennis or stretch your legs on the jogging and walking track. What about the children? They have access to fun times at their own pint-sized pool and play area with PlayStation games.
The guest rooms combine an authentic Indian decor with modern amenities. Cool down under the air-conditioning and order a light snack from room service.
