Photos and Description of this holiday apartment in Baga
Our 1 Room Studio apartment along with our 1 bhk apartment and villa are part of a luxurious residential resort Riviera Hermitage in Arpora - a quiet countryside part of North Goa. Riviera Hermitage is just 2 Km from the famous Baga Beach and several popular restaurants and bars like Club Cabana, Tito’s, Britto’s, Suza Lobo to name a few. The vibrant Ingo's Saturday night market and Goa’s only Go Karting track are just across the road and the Splashdown Waterpark is about 200 meters down the road. The famous Calangute, Anjuna and Vagator beaches with water sports and great shacks are also just a few kilometers away. Morjim beach is 12 km and has some amazing restaurants on the beach. Thalasa a must go to restaurant while in Goa with its beautiful sunset view is closeby at Vagator. Riviera Hermitage a spacious and impeccably clean private gated complex having 24 hour security has an added advantage of being adjacent to the DoubleTree Hilton Hotel and shares its entrance with it. The large 20 mt pool has sunbeds and is extremely clean with crystal clear water and just like the entire Riviera Hermitage complex is very well maintained by its staff and manager. The pool is just below the apartment on the first floor. Riviera Hermitage being a private holiday home complex is scarsly populated at most times therefore offering a lot of privacy with the pool usually giving the feeling of being a private pool.
As the DoubleTree Hilton Hotel shares a common entrance with Riviera Hermitage guests can hop across to use various hotel facilities. The hotel has an excellent restaurant and bar and their coffee shop in the lobby is useful to have a quick bite at any time of the day or night. Our tie up with the Hilton allows you to a 25% discount on dining at any of their restaurants. Taxi's and bikes for renting out are easily available at the entrance.

About Ravinder Kohli
Anu, my wife and I have been associated with the hospitality business for about 20 years. Anu worked with the Oberoi group (a famous 5 star hotel chain) in Goa and Delhi before quitting soon after we got married. We since have three mid range hotels of our own - two in Nagpur and one in Delhi by the name of The Legend Inn. We bought the villa in 2009 and really liked the location of Riviera Hermitage, it's setting and close proximity to the Hilton Hotel - a big advantage. Combining our love for Goa with our experience in the hospitality business we decided to rent out the villa and run it in a professional way with a focus on maintenance, cleanliness and comfort to make the stay of our guests a memorable one. We have received a great response from guests over the last few years for the villa and have recently purchased an apartment at Riviera Hermitage itself in 2013.
Anu grew up in Mumbai and went to University there while I did my schooling in Delhi and Sydney where I went to the University of Sydney. We are now settled in Delhi and have 2 children aged 16 and 10. Not to forget we have 2 dogs - both Labradors.
Though we are settled in Delhi we keep a close eye on things in Goa which are managed well by our caretaker.
Anu and I would love to welcome you to our villa during your trip to Goa to make your holiday a great one.
