Gypset To A Seaside Indian Hideaway in Goa

Goa, India
You're gonna want to gypset with your girls to this gorgeous Indian hideaway by the sea in Goa.  Think white sandy beaches, skinny palms and a rich abundance of cultural heritage. Yup, a beach vacay is India too. Nilaya Hermitage is like an oasis tucked away amongst the palm trees & isolated from the rest of the city. The food is fresh & local, the staff is beyond welcoming. But what makes it so special besides the beachside proximity is the mix of gritty, crumbly old architecture and modern amenities. We call that character 'round these parts.

Does it Get Any More Bucket List Than Northern Lights & Iceland's Blue Lagoon?
