    The Leela Goa

    A sandstone dragon with the mane and cat-like body of a lion and the curling trunk of an elephant stared at me, fierce and beautiful. This was a yali, a temple guardian, and I had just entered the inner sanctum of The Leela Goa, a luxurious beach resort under The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts.

    Staying at a luxury resort, I never imagined I’d find myself scouring a wet market in search of seafood for dinner, but that’s exactly what I did one morning while lodging at Alila Diwa Goa, a luxury resort in Majorda, South Goa.

    Shanti Morada

    My forehead was daubed with a yellow paste, my neck garlanded with a gorgeous arrangement of yellow chrysanthemums and tangerine marigolds, and my throat refreshed with a glass of coconut water. This was the warm welcome I received from the staff of Shanti Morada, which served as a teaser for the wholesome Indian experience I enjoyed at this boutique hotel.
