Welcome to Arco Iris, Curtorim, Goa !
"Arco Iris”, meaning "Rainbow" in Portuguese, is a 200 + year old, elegantly restored ,colonial house built on a sprawling, terraced, 1.5 acre property. It overlooks a seasonal lake and is about a Km from the Zuari river. The proximity to the lake and the abundant greenery, in and around the property, ensures a scenic ambience right through the year.
Arco Iris is located in Curtorim, a quiet village in South Goa, about 7kms from Margao. The village is dotted with seasonal lakes and paddy fields and is often referred to as the “Granary of Goa”. Besides being popular with bird watchers as a destination and the attendant photo shoot opportunities that it affords, Curtorim and its adjoining villages house several places of historical interest.
The house, with a built up area of around 7,000 sq feet, comprises an entrada (foyer), sala”(living room), dining room, five bedrooms with en suite bathrooms (four on the ground floor and one on the first floor), lounge, library, fully equipped modern kitchen, utility area, two store rooms and accommodation for the support staff. Three of the bedrooms open into private balconies. It also has a balcao (balcony) and gallery in front and a courtyard in the rear.
Our family of Bennita (“Beni”), Ganesh (“Gani”), Trusha and Trikaya ( “T&T” ), resides on the premises. We are significantly aided by Krishna and Hemraj, our resident cook/ gardener/ house keepers in keeping Arco hospitable for our guests and visitors.
We provide boarding and breakfast to our guests. Additionally, guests can partake lunch/ dinner upon prior request. We will be glad to offer our guests any assistance in terms of transport arrangements, sight-seeing options, leisure activities, or just about anything else which will make their stay in Goa memorable.
