Ask any traveller heading to Goa, and you'd have them tell all about why they chose a BNB over a hotel. But ask me, and you will hear all about why you should do otherwise and book a stay at the all-new Ibis Styles Vagator. The hotel packs a whole lot of fun and pleasant surprises behind its seemingly simple facade. And as the second Ibis Styles property in Goa, they have perfected how to make travellers feel like they're all set for the susegado way of life.

Booking a stay in Goa is not a day's task, for there are too many things to consider—is it close enough to the beach? Is that one bar that's been on your list for the longest time situated nearby? And what about the flea markets? Well, that's exactly what Ibis Styles in Vagator gets right.

Located on Chapora Road and only 1.5 km from the Vagator Beach, the hotel puts you in the thick of Goa's best keeps. However, that doesn't mean you can't steal a quiet moment. The hotel's spacious and well-manicured backyard, which also fits a sizeable swimming pool and a poolside bar, gives ample opportunity for you to enjoy a relaxing day in.

However, if you are easily bit by the party bug—as it happens in Goa—the hotel is only a 15-minute drive from some of the most happening bars, restaurants, and beachside clubs in Goa, such as the Elephant & Co., Hideaway, and Darling's bar, to name a few.

While the hotel's location gives you all the reasons to step out, the scrumptious preparations and the chic, colourful interiors of the in-house restaurant 'Spice It' will convince you otherwise. Think of all the Goan classics, from xacuti to rava fish fry to vindaloo— you will find them all. But that does not mean you can't get your favourites. The restaurant whips up a mean homestyle chicken curry or butter chicken just as well as it does authentic Goan preparations.

A Play Of Colour

A holiday is incomplete without good food, but nothing quite breaks or makes one like where you choose to stay. Fortunately, Ibis Styles' bright and quirky but practical and wheelchair-friendly decor easily makes you feel like your holiday has begun as soon as you step inside, before you may have even checked in. Right from the reception to the room, the uplifting yellow colour adds a glow to each corner.

Despite the indulgent usage of bright colours, Ibis Styles gets the balance right. While the yellow still makes it to the elements in the room, the decor is minimal, the interiors are sleek, and the amenities are on point—all in addition to ensuring there's no usage of plastic, but instead refillable containers and glass bottles. While you can choose between a queen-size or twin bed, the property maintains the brand's characteristic style of standardising each room. Moreover, Each room comes with a pool or a garden view, air conditioning, a TV, a coffee bar, and facilities like free WiFi. And in case you feel the need for something more, the warm and hospitable staff attend to it in a jiffy. With all that, Ibis Styles in Vagator is just the right blend of comfort and cool—something that matches up to Goa's timeless appeal and spirit.
