About The Postcard Velha, Goa
The Postcard Velha in Goa is a fab hill resort that is tucked away atop the hillock of Nossa Senhora de Monte. The resort overlooks the sprawling Champakali estate of 300 acres of virgin coconut plantations and the magnificent Mandovi river delta.
The hotel has an outdoor swimming pool, with one-of-a-kind no fixed check in and check out time, no set breakfast hours, and on-site Ayurveda consultation and treatments for guests.
The Postcard Velha is conveniently located near the Church of St Francis of Assisi, the Basilica of Bom Jesus that is just 1km away.
You are immediately transported into a world of antiquity the instant you set eyes on The Postcard Velha Goa’s picture-perfect panorama. As though the ghosts of Portuguese colonisers, Arabian traders, and local Goans still roam these alleyways, whispering their tales to the interested visitor, the very air exudes a faint sense of old-world grandeur.
The Basilica of Bom Jesus, a majestic structure that houses Saint Francis Xavier’s mortal remains, is located in the centre of the city. In this setting, the sacred and the profane coexist, and the passage of time is marked not only by the passing of the hours and minutes, but also by the dedication of the pilgrims and the echo of Gregorian chants. Even seasoned travellers are in awe of the Baroque architecture, which is embellished with beautiful carvings and golden altars.
You can find delightful homes with pastel facades covered with vivid bougainvillaea and historic churches that appear to rise up to the heavens when exploring the winding streets of The Postcard Velha Goa. The haunting ruins of St. Augustine’s Tower, where the sounds of Franciscan monks may still be heard, to the Se Cathedral, which tells the chronicle of a city that resisted the elements by standing tall against the monsoons and time itself, each and every corner has a tale to tell.
The postcard is transformed into a work of art as the sun sets, giving a golden tint over the tranquil Mandovi River. The Postcard Velha Goa encourages you to linger and savour each moment with its leisurely pace of life. Your taste dances as the regional cuisine, a blend of Konkani and Portuguese flavours, satisfies your appetite. The air is filled with the soft strains of Fado music, creating the ideal atmosphere for a romantic evening by the river.
The Postcard Velha Goa, however, is not simply about the past. It is a tangible example of the beauty and tenacity of Indian tradition. The locals will share their customs with you while beaming a warm grin, tying together the past and present in a seamless tapestry that ranges from the making of Feni to the craft of complex crochet work.
You are invited to enter the sepia-toned world of The Postcard Velha Goa, the living Indian postcard, and once you do, you won’t want to leave.
