Just came back from a group culinary tour of India. Goa was our last stop on a tour which has had it’s ups and downs. A two hour ride from the airport with lots of construction and crazy traffic brought me to this place quite tired and Andy. An easy check in and a room that was large , air conditioned and filled with well preserved antique furniture was a pleasant relief. Dinner was planned at this place ( they make fresh food —choice depends on what’s fresh in the market. I came to Goa in search of quality Goan food and a Goan identity. Was surprised to find out that the management does not allow pork or beef to be served on the premises ( ?? Political correctness ). There went my pipe dreams of having a delicious Sorpotel for dinner. While the chef made a delicious dinner , it was not as Goan as i had expected. Next day we trekked to a place called Palaco do Deao —another refurbished house that advertized itself as serving fresh farm to table authentic cuisine. The less said about my culinary experience the better —being totally underwhelmed i had all but given up my dream of having a decent Goan meal in Goa. I must credit the manager of this hotel Lindsay D’Souza coming to my rescue. All along he had been very efficient and attentive to the needs of his guests at the hotel. He promised to serve Goan seafood my last evening in Goa ( his hands being strapped on the issue of pork and beef ). After a couple of fine Coconut Feni and Lima cocktails part of our group settled down to a delicious GOAN meal of shrimp rechaido and crab cafreal. This was the genuine article i had been craving for. My visit to Goa had not gone totally wasted. The next morning Lindsay brought me FRESH coconut toddy as he had promised he would get for me to try before i left. This is not an easy item to get —-fresh it’s a minimal alcohol nectar of the Gods —-left to ferment , it’s a deadly drink that I do not care for. The overriding positive experience i had at this very pleasant place was my interaction with the lady at the desk ( Deepti Sahu ) and Lindsay D’Souza. Their efficiency , pleasant demeanor and eagerness to please salvaged my trip to a discover a Goa that i am sad to say has largely lost it’s identity.

We had a wonderful long weekend at Siolim House. The warmth and hospitality of everyone makes it feel more like a home stay but in royal surroundings of centuries gone by: comfortable rooms, excellently furnished with great taste and eye for detail, perfectly maintained gardens, and beautiful common areas such as the cosy courtyard. But the best is really all the care and support we received: Deeptirna cared for every detail of our stay, and Lindsay with his tremendous local knowledge arranged a multitude of program options how to pass our time most agreeable - be it sightseeing, local market, fashion boutiques, jazz club or local restaurants. But we were glad we didn't miss out on Siolim House dinner - the cook is excellent. He even arranged special light lunch options for us. Looking forward to coming back soon!

I enjoyed this very charming hotel - with beautiful decor inside. Pool and garden are small but pleasant and relaxing. It is clean and well run. The Manager Lindsay D'Souza was very helpful and the staff was delightful. The only thing I was not crazy about was that it was not easy to walk around to other places - bad roads and cars zipping by.. Not much to do in walking distance.... so you have to hire a taxi to go to restaurants and explore area - and taxi pricing surprisingly higher than in other parts of India..

We looked for a quiet place And grabbed the last room available at Siolim — I mean have you seen the house! What we didn’t expect is to have one of the best holidays of ours lives during what’s off-season for Goa. The house was stunning, as is obvious. Spending time under those high ceilings, with waxed wooden floors and charming furniture is an experience. The best part was the warmth of the staff supervised by Deeptirna Sahu and Lindsay D’Souza. They had the perfect recommendations, sending us near and far to experience the true Goa, arranging everything from bikes, taxis to guides for heritage walks. Highly recommend if you are looking for a quiet and rejuvenating holiday.

Four nights relaxing at the end of the off season - could not have had a better place to stay. Quiet, local village near to Goa’s best beaches and restaurants. Great swimming pool, wonderful breakfasts. Most of all the trip was made special by the friendly staff and exceptionally helpful manager, Deeptima, who helped us with bookings for cars, restaurants and always had great recommendations.

Siolim House was the base for our exploration of Goa and we could not have been more satisfied. The wonderful historic buildings have been restored and modernised with sensitivity and retain the rustic with enough features to ensure a high level of comfort and style. The management and staff were friendly and very helpful attending to all our needs and providing excellent advice and support allowing us a to plan a terrific itinerary taking in the highlights of this unique Indian state. Thank you to all!

Siolim House is a special place. Owner Varun Sood has restored a 350 year old Portuguese farmhouse with utmost delicacy. Authentic, lovely, quite an experience. Lindsay, the manager, showered us with warmth and hospitality. The other team members were also constantly solicitous, including the newly recruited Preston. We visited during the height of Monsoon. By design. My parents and I had two rooms around the courtyard, and the often thunderous sound of the pounding rain provided a soundtrack that we wanted to enjoy. We did excursions up and down Goa. I recommend lunch at Tiracol Fort (North Goa, Maharashtra border), Palacio Dei Deao (South Goa), Braganza Mansion, Chandor, Figueredo Mansion (South Goa), heritage walks in Old Goa and Panjim with MakeItHappen tour guides that the hotel can arrange. Enjoyed meeting Varun, the eclectic owner, and his family. It was a homestay, not a hotel experience. And that is a gigantic endorsement. The food is wonderful. Loved the 5 days we spent there.

The stay was great, the rooms beautiful and spacious, the staff was warm and helpful. Perfect getaway for folks looking to enjoy Goa both off and in season. I went with a friend and it was the best holiday ever

We had a very relaxed and comfortable stay at the Siolim Hotel. We were there in the low season so we had the place mostly to ourselves (especially the pool)! In fact we were the only guests for one of the nights. Lindsey and Deepti were very helpful in suggesting things to do and places to eat around the area and were great conversationalists too! The rooms retain their historic feel, particularly in the main/old building. The bathrooms were extremely spacious, especially in the room we stayed in. The only peculiar thing was that request you to not throw anything in the WC, not even toilet paper! Something to do with old sewerage system... It's a quiet neighborhood which made for an excellent walk, especially in the direction of a jetty nearby. We didn't eat other meals at the hotel except for breakfast which was decent. We felt at home in the hotel and were easily able to seek for any help from the staff. Would stay here again :)
