Summertime, Calangute

This homestay won the “Asia’s Most Romantic Boutique Retreat 2016″ award at the World Boutique Hotel Awards in London, a fact that hosts Hans and Sucheta proudly flaunt. Furniture sourced from Bali and India, an infinity pool, and two acres of gardens will greet you at this home. Close to the nightlife centres of Calangute and Candolim, Summertime seems to be wrapped in a bubble of peace, as it is perched on a hill overlooking paddy fields.
