Nilaya in Sanskrit means adobe in the blue: Heaven.
Nilaya Hermitage, Goa’s quiet boutique hotel nestles amidst nature in Arpora-Bardez.
Inspired by Arabian nights and Moorish architecture, Nilaya has eleven rooms and two beautifully designed luxurious tents. Each of these uniquely designed and named after elements of nature. The decorative elements, as well as the furniture, are handpicked. Gently curving walls hand-cut from natural laterite stones and organically shaped free form structures, Natural pathways that curve through thick foliage embraces the 33-meter swimming pool that rises like the blue lagoon on the cliff edge. Everything about Nilaya Hermitage is harmonious, including the way its name gently floats off the tongue.
