Hidden away on the unspoilt backwaters of the River Chapora in North
Goa, you will find natural beauty and serenity you can only dream of
and yet the property is a mere fifteen minutes by car or speedboat
from the palm fringed beaches that have made Goa famous. Sweeping
views of lush tropical landscapes with meandering rivers and magical
islands combine with understated luxury and personal service.
Rediscover long lazy days and peaceful nights in an exclusive
private resort where you determine the rhythm of your holiday.
Welcome to Casa Colvale (pronounced "col - va - lay")
Casa Colvale's twelve luxurious rooms are all individually styled in
a subtle fusion of contemporary and antique south-east asian design.
Natural materials and handmade fabrics and linens that billow in the
soft breezes are complimented by original works of art specially
commissioned from leading Goan artists. Spacious bathrooms come
complete with fine toiletries and scented candles.
All the rooms come with glorious sit-outs or private terraces with
breathtaking views of the backwaters and the abundance of wildlife
on the riverbanks or islands stretching before you.

Our complimentary breakfast can be enjoyed on our riverside deck in
the dry season (Nov-May) or on one of the spacious covered verandas
during the monsoon (June - Oct).
Dinner menus include fantastic Goan feasts and classic western
dishes. Freshly caught seafood is grilled on the BBQ and
occasionally the tandoor is fired up for some tasty North Indian
delicacies. Dinner parties and romantic candlelit suppers by the
river can be arranged.
The main activity at Casa Colvale is relaxation and harmony with
nature. That said, we have two stunning swimming pools to choose
from. The first pool is found on the elevated section of the
property and has an infinity edge which provides an incredible view
of the backwaters, islands, whitewashed churches, sleepy riverside
villages and lush Goan jungle stretching for miles and miles. The
second pool can be found perched on the riverside and affords a
wonderful vantage point to watch the river wildlife and occasional
traditional rice boat or dug-out canoe meandering past the hotel.
Relax with a luxurious massage or take a yoga class on the riverside
deck, enjoy some peaceful fishing or bird-watching and you'll lose
yourself in nature with egrets showing you how to fish, buffalo
swimming across the river and if you're lucky, a rare sighting of
one of the shy local crocodiles.
For the more adventurous, we can provide a speed boat in the dry
season to head to the beaches in style or maybe a cruise in a
traditional houseboat to enjoy the backwaters at a more leisurely
