A Hidden Treasure of Goa

In the mystical land of South Goa, where the rhythmic waves of the sea meet the gentle flow of a river and a healing spring, lies Neemrana’s Three Waters. This heritage ‘non-hotel’ made from the recuperated stones of a 20th c. Portuguese customs house is not just a place to rest; it is a junction that weaves together the stories of the past and present. With its idyllic setting, this lovely heritage property in South Goa embraces the beauty of its surroundings – the river, the sea, and a healing spring – offering a unique experience that captures the traditional essence of Goa.

As you approach Neemrana’s Three Waters, driving through the vibrant and colorful homes of the local fishermen in Betul, you will feel a sense of anticipation. This is not your ‘hotel-hotel’; it is a place where the world fades away and the soul finds solace. The Betul village, where the hotel stands, is a quintessential fishing village whose people have lived there and respected the sea for thousands of years where mechanization is still not welcome. This is where Goa meets the present but still lives slow.

The property itself is a museo-tel, a haven of history and art, adorned with a display of 9,000 rare shells, corals, and fossils amidst which you can savor delicacies at the Sea Horse eatery. Each room pays homage to a different variety of shells, inviting you to embark on a poetic journey through the wonders of the sea.
