Prainha - Beachside Cottages Goa
In the year 1963 a little whitewashed summer cottage with its surrounding coconut grove was inherited by Aires Dias. He made his father's dream of "Cottages By The Sea" into what is today the resort PRAINHA, which centres around the original cottage. The name derives from the Portuguese word for 'little beach'.

Prainha is the perfect setting for an exotic holiday. Though only seven kilometres from the city of Panjim, it is distant from the clamour and the sights of the typical tourist spots.
It overlooks the secluded Dona Paula beach and is surrounded by tropical vegetation and tall palm trees. Its simple offerings, the vibrant colours of the Goan landscape, the seaside, the fragrance of country flowers, waves lapping on a little used beach, home cooked meals with a professional touch, spacious rooms and cottages, make staying at Prainha an unforgettable vacation experience.

Our staff, brought up on a tradition of simple and honest values, will work their way into your heart, with their smiling eagerness to please you in every way. Our rooms have been designed to reflect the relaxed, easy-going life style of Goa.
