My stay at Ramada Caravela ,Varca Beach ,Goa

So, Ramada Caravela held this contest on Twitter & Facebook where you had to upload your couple images to win a 3 night stay! Of-course I had to try my luck!
I got short-listed in the top 6, and after a lot of competitive spirit, votes, jury decision, etc won it!

Winner Announcement

It was really exciting, got a booking confirmation after a couple of days, last minute only bus was available (flight prices exorbitant). Off we went!

Reached Margaon Bus Stand at 1.30 pm, and the property at 2 pm. It is situated right at the beach, totally wow!

The entrance, the lobby, the reception everything is SO grand, makes you feel like you've just entered a royal palace, only to be treated like a Queen & King yourself!




We were tired from the journey, so had a quick lunch at the Cafe Cascada & went to our room to rest & get fresh. The room is lovely to, comprising of a balcony to lounge in, bathroom with all amenities & bathtub, tea/coffee maker, a minibar, television and adequate lighting.

There was a Valentine's Day special program that night, which had a great Valentine Day theme decor with Red heart shaped balloons etc.


The hotel has amenities like swimming pools (Yes, pools) with a minibar situated in the middle of one of them! Thats like wow! Haven't seen that anywhere else! Yoga, Jacuzzi, Gym, Massage, Salon, Discotheque, Tennis Court, Beach shack.. its huge, 20 acres of property very well utilized! They also have some or the other activities going on for kids at the activity centre, the hotel is very kid friendly.



Though the property is around 20 years old, it is very well maintained, and has this charm about it which distinguishes it from other hotels.



The food was good too, always a variety at the buffet spread. A mixture of different cuisines too. And there were these "One Man Show" performances at dinner time which added to the ambiance!


Thank you for the amazing stay, its something we will cherish for a long time to come!
