Siolim House Goa

Former residence of the governor of Macau, this house was built in 1675 and is certainly one of the only survivors of the beginnings of the Portuguese occupation in Goa. Siolim house has been lovingly restored by its current owner and transformed into a boutique hotel of ten rooms in 2000. It owes its very survival only to the will of a passionate young man who made every effort to retire it, by the traditional materials used (such as window panes made of oyster shells, letting the light shine through while filtering the heat) rather than traditional ancestral techniques (pure shell lime wall plaster, etc …) . This superb restoration awarded him a price of honor by the UNESCO in 2001. After 2 and a half years of works, the owner took care to look for all the furniture (the original ones had been dispersed and resold) in order to perfect the result.

2 Governor’s suites located on the first floor (Macao and Macassar),

1 family suite with 2 rooms and a huge bathroom located on the ground floor (Malabar suite)

5 standard suite rooms

1 garden suite located in a separate small house for an even more private experience

Restaurant on demand; you have to order early morning for the lunch and early afternoon for the diner, but it is this “family home” side that makes its charm! Breakfast and other meals are served on the inside patio which is absolutely charming.

Swimming pool, library
