Set amid lush tropical gardens, coconut palms, and cashew trees, the family-run Santana Beach Resort is just a 2-minute walk from the golden sands of Candolim Beach. The 17th-century Fort Aguada, with its much-photographed lighthouse, is 3 miles (5 kilometers) from this Candolim, Goa, resort.
Guests can enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast each day. Spend the afternoon at the swim-up bar at 1 of the resort's 2 refreshing outdoor pools. Dine outdoors in the fresh sea air at the poolside Olegario's bar and restaurant. Or take the short path to the beachfront Calamari Bathe & Binge, serving Goan dishes and open seasonally. Store your valuables in the resort's safety lockers, which are monitored 24 hours a day.
Guestrooms have views of lush, tropical gardens from balconies. The rooms also offer air conditioning, cable TV, minibars, and private bathrooms with hot showers. WiFi and airport shuttle are available for a surcharge.
