Beni, Ganesh and their daughters welcomed us into their absolutely magnificent and authentic Goan home, Arco Iris, at Christmas time. We couldn't have asked for a better experience! Our room was large and well furnished, the other lucky guests were charming, breakfast was very good, and the staff sooooo nice. There is a peaceful feeling here, and space. Music floats...

We made a last-moment try for a vacation during Christmas. By providence - and yes, such events make you believe in 'luck', my Boss suggested his friend's 'homestay' place Arco Iris at Goa. A phone call to Beni, and again, with luck by our side, we got a reservation also. By that time, I'd checked out Arco on the Net...

Finding Arco Iris was an adventure in itself as we were coming to it from the more touristy places of South Goa - Betalbatim. The winding village roads and the sleepy environs of Curtorim lake was the first hint. As we came upon this exquisite home stay and drove up the flower lined driveway leading upto the old remodelled Portugese...

We had a great time at Acro Iris. Beautiful old Portuguese house , with huge ( understatement ) rooms, with high roofs. It has a quaint, old time feel and one can imagine how people used to live in a bygone era. There is a huge garden in front of a beautiful porch. To relax and spend a lazy day...

You'll fall in love with Arco Iris. Partly because its one of the most beautiful property you can hope to find anywhere - Goa or otherwise.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Arco Iris means “Rainbow” in Portuguese, and was built on a sprawling, 1.5 acre terraced property which overlooks a seasonal lake. This supplements the water requirements of the surrounding paddy fields. The proximity to the lake and the Zuari, the abundant greenery in and around the property, ensure a picturesque Goan setting throughout the year. The house itself is styled along colonial Portuguese lines with a high plinth, imposing columns, high ceilings and offers excellent natural ventilation throughout the year. It has been restored, true to its heritage and without compromising the modern day amenities that have come to be associated with the changes in lifestyle since the early 19th century.During the restoration process, all efforts were made to preserve the original materials which had originally gone into the construction of the house by using them, at times, for alternate purposes. The end result is a house which reflects a judicious and tasteful blend of the modern and the traditional. With a built up area of around 7,000 sq feet, the house comprises an “entrada” (foyer), “sala” (living room), dining room, four guest bedrooms with attached bathrooms and a fully equipped modern kitchen. Three of the bedrooms open onto private balconies. It also has a “balcao” (balcony) in front and a courtyard at the rear. The “balcao”, is the most social part of the house where any daily activity, be it catching up with neighbours, reading morning newspapers, eating , or just plain lazing can be enjoyed. The “sala” or the high ceilinged living room is reserved for formally receiving and entertaining visitors. The dining room is dominated by the dining table which can comfortably seat 8. All bedrooms have been suitably modified to accommodate attached bathrooms with modern amenities. The bedroom colours have been chosen keeping in mind the colours of the rainbow.There is plenty of space to read in the lounges, the dining room, or outdoors in the verandah. ... more   less
