There is surely more to Goa than just beaches, and those who repeatedly seek the rush and buzz of the beaches and shacks around have not yet experienced ‘ the other Goa’. The charms of old Goa, pristine river islands, Salim Ali bird sanctuary that is a thriving habitat for birds, cycling opportunities through Goa’s many sleepy villages nor experienced the quiet of Goa from a vantage point - in a secluded garden behind a church in one of the Champakali Villa’s, all to yourself. Here is a space to review and choose what you wish to do - to hit the beachside hotspots of South Goa ( just 20 minutes away ) or explore the designer stores of Panjim. A mere thirty minute drive away, Panjim also offers eclectic world cuisine, art and music , casinos on the river Mandovi yet close enough to come back to Champakali, to rest and rejuvenate in peace and quiet before you head back to your frenetic lives back home. Champakali wins on two counts, both of which make it 'Rare' as well. It's designed to be a beautiful home, detailed in every respect and designed be spread on a unique location, imagined by a perfectionist.
Located on a hilltop in an enchanting village against the backdrop of a heritage church, Champakali is an intimate and stylish space with two large independent villas of three bedrooms each. Clean lines, zen white finishes, cool green floors, tiled roofs, intricately designed railings along with bright splashes of colour that come from modern and vintage object d'art and handpicked furnishings adding colour, character and a subtle sense of luxury.
Each villa focuses on open style living and lounging areas with a kitchenette, private balconies leading out of every bedroom, sprawling gardens with lots of leafy out-door corners perfect for languid afternoons. For those looking for lazy laps, Champakali's pool nestles among fragrant flowering trees, an irresistible invitation. The superlative team is ever willing and attentive to your every whim, hearty breakfasts served out in the gardens or lunches and dinners of tempting pastas, salads and local delicacies - every stay, be it with families or friends or just by yourself is a bespoke experience at Champakali - the perfect 'susegad' just like the Goans would say !
