It’s Dec 2020 and just like every year, everybody is flocking to Goa, but is it a good idea to do so too? Well, that depends on the type of trip you want to have. If you’re in the mood to party, perhaps it’s best to avoid public spaces. But if you want a getaway, villas have it all. You can enjoy isolation here, far from the pubs and bars and all the people. You can spend quality time with your loved ones indoors. We have chosen a list of our best villas across all of Goa’s districts. Those with the highest safety standards possible have been chosen, with an option in every region, that doesn’t usually get crowded.
Before you proceed to the list of villas, let us inform you of the precautions we take.
