The small and friendly Acacia Palms resort offers great value. Overlooking the dunes of Colva beach, it is the perfect base from which to explore the highlights of southern Goa. The 60 welcoming rooms, with dark wooden furnishings reminiscent of colonial times, are arranged in villa-style blocks around a spacious, flowerfilled garden. The small but inviting pool is the perfect place to cool down. The restaurant offers a good range of international and local dishes, with the choice of eating in the dining room, on the pool terrace or, our favourite spot, a raised terrace with views across the sand dunes to the sea.

From the hotel, a short walk brings you to the white sands of Colva beach where you’ll find plenty more colourful beach shacks, backed by coconut groves. In the evening tables are brought out onto the beach itself where you can dine by candlelight and sip a Kingfisher beer with your toes in the cool soft sand. Though considerably quieter than the bustling resorts in the north, Colva is the liveliest beach resort in the south with plenty of excellent restaurants, shops and craft stalls all close at hand. Plus, the tranquil virtually deserted beaches of the far south, are within easy reach for a day trip to remember.

I loved dining on the raised terrace with an idyllic view across the sand dunes to the sea beyond, a particularly lovely spot at sunset.
