A White Egret flying over the picturesque village of Aldona would see a bridge crossing a river, meandering its way through the quiet countryside below, before it landed in a lush, sub tropical garden. With an occasional croak it would stare into the waters of an ornamental pond searching for a fish. A small family group watches the bird in amazement as they stand on the terrace of one of the wonderful bungalows of Avanilaya. This luxurious accommodation is a haven of peace and tranquility immersing its guests in the distinctive architecture of a Portuguese villa, subtly blended with contemporary Indian charm. It is set in a prominent position on a hill in Corjuem, near Aldona, overlooking a winding tributary of the River Mandovi. The elegant design, showcased within Avanilaya, is complemented by a personal service which creates a new and exciting image of Goa in the 21st Century. Welcome to a world that is grandiose, breathtaking and beautiful.
Avanilaya bungalows are classically furnished in spacious and tastefully appointed rooms. Each has a stylish living room and dining room, beautiful double bedrooms with an en suite shower and bath room, a large, modern, well equipped kitchen, a wonderful private swimming pool and terraces overlooking the lustrous gardens and surrounding countryside. Their ‘Padimunu or Thirteen in Tamil’ is a stunning bungalow with a grand entrance surrounded by plants and flowers. You step into a world of eye-catching design and luxury. Their ‘Panchavatti’ derived from two sanskrit words ‘pañca’ and ‘vata’, meaning five trees; is a courtyard bungalow with all the rooms surrounding a beautiful ornamental garden full of trees and plants. After crossing a small bridge to enter the villa from the private road on the estate you are welcomed by a lovely seating area and the view of the courtyard garden and the villa.
