After the city, Villa Morjim was a most excellent getaway. Spacious, grand, and best of all, the garden opens out onto the wide river.. where one can see a variety of migratory birds. Quite a sight first thing in the morning! The rooms are large and luxurious, and still homely. The in-house chefs know how to cook the sea-food Goa-style, yet keep the cuisine light and easy on the stomach. The staff is very helpful and always polite. Highly recommended!
