Alila Diwa Goa brings a refreshingly unique resort experience to Gonsua Beach in Majorda, just 20 minutes from Goa Dabolim International Airport. Set amidst the serene landscape of lush, verdant rice plantations flowing towards the Arabian Sea, relaxation reigns at this Goa resort.

Enter a sanctuary of contemporary elegance inspired by traditional Goan design − steeply pitched roofs, ceiling high columns, cool verandas and tranquil courtyards, setting us apart from other luxury hotels in Goa. Whether enjoying an intimate couple's retreat or a getaway for the entire family, the 153 rooms and suites at this Goa resort offer havens of space, comfort and serenity, while the resort’s new Diwa Club is an enclave of exclusivity, boasting its own lap pool with an open air Jacuzzi and hot tub.


Set amid lush paddy fields, Alila Diwa Goa blends the best of contemporary Goan architecture with rich cultural traditions to fashion an extraordinary experience in luxury destination travel. High pitched roofs and wide verandahs combine with the subtle shades of teak, local red laterite stone, polished Kota stone and terrazzo flooring, open-sided walls and brass lanterns, which bestow a soft magical glow at night.

The interiors are designed to capture the Goan ethos through simple furniture with clean lines. Rooms and suites have been designed such that they flow out towards the natural environs. The simple elegance of pale wood and cream surroundings are offset by latticed screens and luxury linens in shades of brown and russet. The public spaces too feature classic Goan touches, such as the art installation in the Edge Bar by contemporary Goan sculptor Subodh Kerkar.

Alila Diwa Goa takes great pains to minimise its environmental impact by using primarily local materials and working with the landscape to preserve indigenous ecosystems. The resort's aesthetic scheme reflects these efforts, blending effortlessly and gracefully into its natural setting. All materials used in building the hotel were sourced locally and an abundance of the region’s eco-friendly brick red laterite stone can be seen throughout the hotel.

Preservation and conservation of the local environment was of utmost importance right from the very beginning of the hotel's design with consideration given to keeping the existing forest trees intact and conserving the nearby rice paddy fields. This also makes the property a bird watcher’s paradise as a number of migratory and local birds nest here.

Alila Diwa Goa has been committed to working with the local community. One of the community projects that has been established supports the Father Basilio Andrade Memorial Higher Secondary School in improving the condition of the school and its facilities. The hotel also actively supports the local community by providing employment and training: residents of the local community were invited to join the team and assist our guests with transportation requirements; and some ladies from the neighbourhood are employed at the Alila Diwa Goa cafeteria for team members' meal preparations. The hotel also helps to secure an area along the beachfront to be manned and maintained by the team in collaboration with the local village youth. In further efforts to encourage local talents, Alila Diwa Goa sponsored sports equipment for the local Youth Club in Majorda at the end of their annual 21-day football coaching camp.
