Goa Accommodation Guide to Goa Beach Resorts Cheap Hotels

Staying in Goa can mean forking out a bit more for accommodation that you probably would in other states, but it is all part of the package. The prices, like most areas, are dependent on the season you choose to travel in. Peak season, especially during December and January sees rates skyrocket for Christmas and New Year while rates decrease dramatically especially over the monsoon season. However it is not highly recommended that you take advantage of these lower rates as Goa is at its best when the sun is out and without rains spoiling its many outdoor activities.


Accommodation is varied with everything from cheap hotels for the true backpacker who is exploring all day and partying by night, to luxury hotels and 5 star accommodations. Depending if you are here for the lush forests, the sandy beaches or a bit of both, you can choose between inland Goa accommodations or Goa beach resorts.
