PRESA di GOA is a country house restored and furnished in Portuguese colonial style where you can witness the grandeur and opulence of times gone by. A stone’s throw away from the endless rice paddies, PRESA di GOA provides for privacy, romance and true relaxation with only the song of birds, the occasional whistle of the toddy tapper climbing the coconut palms and the honk of the baker on his daily rounds to punctuate the calm.
PRESA di GOA is the culmination of 25 years experience, across the globe, from one of the best in the hospitality industry. Ours is an unwavering commitment to quality and your comfort and well-being is our only concern.
This unique country house is located in the typical serene village of Nagoa Saligao, just beyond the sandy shores and noise of Goa’s beach belt, yet close enough to enjoy a day at Goa’s popular beaches, Baga & Calangute, that are a mere 10 minute complimentary drive away, with access to a Private Beach in Calangute. Bask in Goa’s glorious sunshine by our tempting swimming pool amidst the swaying palms and soak in the atmosphere over a meal in our restaurant, barbecue and bar, set in lush green gardens.
Probably the only Turkish restaurant in Goa, the food takes a while to arrive but is impeccable when it does. It serves mezze comprising hummus and pita, fresh barbecued fish, steaks and lamb dishes and homemade yoghurt. Recommended are the vegetarian starters, followed by the Anatolian Beef Stew cooked in red wine sauce and served with a glass of ayran, the Turkish national drink (much like a salty lassi with herbs).
Opened in December 2003, the Country House has undergone a soft renovation in 2011, together with the acquisition of a Heritage Portuguese House of the early 20th century which has been converted to an Executive Suite and extended by 4 particularly large Executive rooms with direct view / access to the Swimming Pool and landscaped gardens.
