Far from the maddening streets of Calangute and Candolim, is the secluded world of Old Goa. Or as the Portuguese say, Velha Goa. It’s also where you’ll find The Postcard Velha, a modernist colonial hideout tucked away atop the sprawling two acre Champakali estate. With all of eight rooms, the hotel is the perfect place to enjoy the simple pleasures of Goa, and the rare luxury of complete privacy.
There’s no such thing as too much nature. Which is why our sun-kissed villas and suites lie in the shade of the forest with private balconies overlooking lush gardens and the valley beyond. With their tropical aesthetic and plush interiors, they’re the perfect place to rest and reinvigorate.
There’s just the right amount to do at The Postcard Velha. From exploring the city’s UNESCO protected Portuguese neighbourhood to surfing in the Arabian sea, or cycling across secret island routes, there’s plenty to help immerse you in a Goa you’ve never known before and make your stay is a memorable one.
