Cidade De Goa, a 5 star hotel in Panjim, is the place to be to soak in the old world charm of Goa. A quick look of the hotel is inviting enough to spend some luxurious time in the manicured gardens, chequered floors and rooms with the view of the sea. 

Here is how one can rewind back in time at Cidade De Goa. 

Portuguese Architecture


Cidade De Goa is designed by the world-renowned architect Charles Correa who was famous for his creation of modern architectures in post-independent India. Cidade De Goa welcomes travelers and their families in Correa’s intimate alcoves, historic murals, balcaos and tiled roofs.  

Rooms and Suites with Picturesque Views

They have enviable views of the sea, Mediterranean architecture, balconies that bring in natural light, private sit-outs and much more. All the rooms open to a different view of the sea and each window is suitable for ruminating.
