Nilaya, meaning abode in blue or simply heaven in Sanskrit, is a secluded and unique, luxury, boutique hotel in Goa surrounded by nature. The perfect hideaway and antidote to our hectic, modern lifestyles.
We all love a bit of luxury, but there is so much more to making a hotel really memorable. I recently asked 5 well-respected travel bloggers what were their favourite luxury, boutique or eco chic hotels. They replied with a very interesting mix, from the ultimate in luxury to something a little more unusual.
In the sacred forest of Makasutu, you will find the perfect place to escape the world, relax and unwind. With just nine lodges, at many times, it will feel as if you have this magical setting all to yourself.
With good reason most visitors to the beautiful Mediterranean island of Sardinia flock to the coast, as the beaches are among the most beautiful in the world, but, if they don’t ever venture inland, they are really missing out. The scenery inland is breathtaking and in the foothills of the majestic mountains you’ll find one of the mist charming hotels I’ve ever stayed at. It is only rated as a four star hotel but if it is good enough for the likes of Madonna and Richard Gere, than it is good enough for me!
Perched on the cliff-tops overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, you will find the beautiful boutique hotel, Ngala Lodge. A tranquil retreat on the smiling coast of West Africa.
On the vast stretch of sandy beach known as Petite Côte, between Mbour’s fishing port and the seaside resort of Saly, you will find a small hotel that is a real gem. Owned by a French collector of African antiques, the Tama Lodge is the ideal base for an exotic and relaxing break.
