Goa! The sun kissed land on the Western coast of India is a paradise of sorts for Indians and foreigners alike. Go Goa is a common term amongst youngsters who often flock to the state for its beautiful beaches, international music festivals and cheap booze. Having been a Portuguese colony, one can easily see the influence in the culture and architecture of Goa. Though simply considered to be a party place, Goa has a lot more to it than just plain simple raves, it is also a peaceful retreat for people in search of some serenity and bliss, people who just want a break from their stressful lives, sit back and take a breather.

For moments like those here is a list of Best Resorts in Goa where you might be tempted to stay the next time you’re in town:
