About the property:

Nilaya in Sanskrit means abode in the blue: "heaven". Nilaya Hermitage, Goa’s  quiet boutique hotel nestles amidst nature in Arpora-Bardez inspired by Arabian nights and Moorish architecture. Surrounded by luscious foliage, wildlife and a breath taking view of the Arabian Sea. Shrouded in mystery, a dreamlike ambience infuses the resort set in 20 acres of parkland. Everything about Nilaya Hermitage is harmonious, including the way its name gently floats off the tongue! Nilaya has been and, is a destination for the elite and discreet traveller. Gently curving walls hand cut from natural laterite stones and organically shaped free form structures, natural pathways that curve through thick foliage, embraces the 33 meter swimming pool that rises like a blue lagoon on the cliff edge. Nilaya is a discreet and quiet getaway from the daily hustle bustle of life. Nilaya offers a quiet ambience exquisitely in this  quaint hideaway. Rustic themed cottages in inspired architecture acts as a background for splendid tropical birds on overhanging branches & wakeup calls from peacocks. The powerful throb of nature is the only clock you will need here. Stone lined pathways, canopied by majestic trees, leads to brick coloured cottages built in the style inspired by Arabian nights and Moorish architecture which  will take you to different state of mind. The cottages are designed so as to provide Guests an immediate experience of the surrounding sights and sounds. The day ahead is ripe with possibilities.
