With New Year fever still in the air, one place is celebrating not only the start of 2015 but also its own birthday. On Jan. 15, nurse Acacia Luxury Hotel completed its first year of providing excellence in hospitality and food. Apart from the beauty and comfort of the four-star hotel located smack in the middle of the Candolim bustle, Acacia has also been providing an apt setting for indulging in lip-smacking food. Three extremely inviting restaurants now grace the premises, Masala Art, with its delightful Indian fare, E.A.T., a multi-cuisine, 24-hour diner, and the rooftop Mediterranean grill, Izgara. This season’s opening of Izgara was among the boutique hotel’s most notable events. The restaurant boasts a stunning view of the Arabian Sea – one of the very few places on the Fort Aguada Road to do so, making it a particularly inviting destination to hang out at sunset. The real draw, of course, is the food – a mouth-watering medley of Mediterranean delights. There is a twist to this plot, however. Izgara has now also introduced authentic Thai cuisine, with a live satay counter and other Thai offerings.
Once you’ve soaked in the view and been satiated by Izgara’s cuisine, you might consider coming down from the roof and enjoying the ‘Sunken Bar’, where refreshing cocktails and yummy snacks are served in and around the pool. Can a sunny Sunday afternoon get any better? Well, honestly it can, especially if you get yourself kneaded at Spa Acacia. The Spa offers a synergistic blend of therapeutic and rejuvenation treatments based on Asian and Western spa techniques. The treatment rooms come with attached shower and steam facilities. Signature Massages include Bamboo Massage, Spa Acacia Signature Package, Aloe Vera Gel Body Massage and the Almond Cream Massage.
If you’d like to come with a pack or are looking to organize a get together, party, meeting or even a wedding, check out the Brown Room, a premium banquet hall with a capacity to accommodate 70-80 people.
Located just 500 metres from the sea in an area many people consider to be the most happening in all of Goa, Acacia Luxury Hotel is a game changer on the North Goa beach belt. Happy birthday!
