Built on the ramparts of a 16th-Century Portuguese fortress, this popular resort has fantastic Indian Ocean views.
The setting of this attractive resort – elevated above the shoreline where a defensive fort once stood – and the views it provides over a sweeping gold-sand beach are what set it apart from the crowd. The infinity-edge pool sits on the edge of landscaped gardens which are dotted with hammocks and quiet spots to retreat to. Reflecting the history of its setting, the architecture has a distinct Portugal-meets-Goa design. The Northern Goa-setting of the Fort Aguada means you‘ll be located within easy reach of one of the region‘s busiest towns, Calangute, yet you‘ll be able to return at to the relative oasis of the resort, perhaps ending the day with a spa treatment.
At the resort’s three restaurants you can enjoy seafood, Italian and local cuisine. Latitude is the all-day dining restaurant where continental favourites are served alongside Goan and North Indian dishes. For a more intimate dinner setting there’s Morisco which serves the freshest seafood created in an interactive kitchen. The Martini Bar is the perfect spot to enjoy cocktails while watching the sunset. For a special treat you can opt for a private dining experience under the stars in a setting of your choice.
The rooms are light and fresh and have a simple design with a few pops of colour. For views out over the pretty gardens you should opt for the Superior Charm Gardenview Rooms which have a private sit-out, while if you would rather views over the resort‘s grounds towards the Indian Ocean then the Deluxe Delight Seaview Rooms are ideal.
