About Hawaii, The Sea Side Village Retreat
Hawaii, is an exclusive waterfront property located at the end of a quaint Goan village at Dona Paula, Goa where the Arabian Sea and Zuari River converge. The adjoining beach was aptly named by the local people as “Havai” which means Breeze, until it was recently modified to its current- “Hawaii”. Their place is situated at the end of a narrow thoroughfare passing thru a typical Goan village. They are at the End-Of-The-Road, where one cannot go any further.
The atmosphere here is absolutely informal and homely, with a minimum of staff thereby offering you privacy, to reflect and relax, like the easy-going life style of Goa - Susegado
The property itself is quite different. This spell-binding, beautiful & exotic 6,600 square meter boutique property with river front landscaped gardens with a rustic hilly portion with large rock/boulderscapes offers you a picture perfect setting of tranquility. There is no swimming pool, but the Hawaii Beach is quite safe to swim in.
They have just ten distinctly decorated sea facing rooms at Their property. Seven of the rooms are housed in the main building, of which two of the rooms are on the ground floor. The remaining three rooms are located on the hilly part and is recommended for those wanting to have total privacy, but yet have a strong heart to climb up the mountain!
