Champakali is a beautifully created villa stay hotel set on a hill, moments from the historic heart of Old Goa by the Mandovi river delta.  This little oasis in the heart of north Goa offers a simple yet charming retreat from the bustle of Goan life.   With an excellent location, you can take a heritage walk right to the sights of old Goa, like the Basilica of Bom Jesus, and the ruins of the Chruch of Saint Augustine.  Just five minutes up the winding hill from the hotel sits the iconic Church of Our Lady of the Mount, with spectacular views offer the lush green landscape of Goa.  For nature lovers, take the nearby ferry to the islands of Chorao and Divar, for long walks, bike rides or the little known Salim Ali bird sanctuary.

Champakali comprises two villas, each with three en-suite bedrooms with private balconies attached.   Built as a home, each room has been lovingly finished with unique furnishings, art and the latest mod cons with lots of natural light and beautiful Indian textiles and linens.  With only six rooms Champakali offers an intimate Goa experience.  The food is all freshly prepared daily using local ingredients, with homemade muesli, fresh breads and custom tea blends.  Lunch and dinner will be made to order daily, with an open pantry throughout the day.

Set in two acres of lush garden there is an array of courtyards, patios, gazebos, hammocks and of course the pool in which to relax and unwind in this tranquil setting.  Take time to sit and read, or use the in house bicycles for a little jaunt to explore the area.  Authentic massages are available at the little outdoor space and are tailored to the individuals needs.  This really is a hotel that offers a feeling of a home away from home.
