Check in to the hotel,freshen up to get ready for Goa Madness.
Begin our journey with lunch at Martin’s Corner. No stay in Goa is complete without having a meal at Martin’s Corner. It is an authentic Goan Delicacy restaurant, offering a wide array of Cuisines.
After lunch, we will visit Chorao Island and will explore the oldest Church of Chorao, one of the most unique temples in the country, The Bunds and Maanos System and the Lost Seminary. The Island of Chorao is an exploration which balances everything in the perfect sense – the beautiful ecosystem, the lost heritage, inspiring stories and the most amazing travelers. Explore the most prominent areas for migratory birds in the entire country on a boat. There are very few temples across the country dedicated to Lord Krishna and his biological mother Devki- feel the magic at the one that exists on this island.
Now, Let’s encounter the most amazing Meraki experience. We will Mud Bath at Chorao Island. We are taken for a lovely boat ride through the mangroves of Goa and we get to jump into the river for an enriching clay bath experience.
The best part about this experience is that we give you an opportunity to beat the heat with a clay bathing activity in the river! One can enjoy applying soft clay all over their skin in the coolness of the water while watching the sunset. This session is then followed by a sit-down Feni tasting session at a local tavern where one gets to try the locally brewed alcohol and play some games tasting and guessing the different flavours that are served.

Witness the most amazing Houses of Goa (Chandor) – The houses of Goa are indeed beautiful, having resulted from the mixture of indigenous and Portuguese architectural styles. There are some gorgeous houses worth visiting in the village of Chandor, which happens to be the ‘Oldest known capital of Goa’! Picture the days gone by where it had armies, fortifications, battles and flourishing trade. Right from the Bhojas to the Kadambas, Chandor was a thriving settlement due to the connectivity that the river Kushavati provided to the travellers. The village is also famous for a legend of a queen’s curse that was brought upon the village! We will witness The Footprints of the Queen, Kadamba Dynasty Temple Ruins & River Kushavati.
We will be exploring Chandor through meeting local family members of one of the most prestigious mansions in the village. We will take you through the grand rooms of two majestic houses while you keep your ears busy with some fascinating stories. Here’s your chance to get transported to the golden days of the royals of Goa.
