For those of you who follow us on Instagram ( @olie_living_lighting ) , you know that we just got back from a weekend in Goa. Nothing makes you feel more alive than a good holiday and one of the things I love about travel, is being able to stay in a beautifully designed Hotel/Resort/BnB. It has to be that perfect mix of something that fits our budget + beautifully designed + located well.
This time in Goa, we stayed at a little haven called Wildflower Villas in Candolim. Reading about Wildflower got me excited, the cottages looked gorgeous and the food had great reviews !
It was even better than we expected. The entire resort was beautifully designed, and I think Sid probably had to drag me away from our beautiful cottage and their fabulous infinity pool (that overlooks a valley with backwaters) .
So for the first time, I'm going to share a little bit about the space we stayed in and if you like this post, I will show you more spots we 'discovered' in India and around the world !
Tucked away in a secluded part of the 8 acre resort was our cottage, Lemon Mint. With a little outdoor seating area, a Living room with a small couch and an antique study table and chair, a beautiful bedroom with gorgeous windows and a bathroom that had TWO lovely rooms, complete with art, quirky hangers and knobs and a bathtub - Lemon Mint was quite a large cottage.
I loved the texture on the white walls ( reminiscent of greek walls ), The tall curtains everywhere that were the only pop of colour in the rooms, and all that white décor and beautiful dark wood furniture. The only thing I may have added are some Olie cushions to that bed. Perhaps a Koi Cloud Long Cushion ? :)
Off season, The Villas at Wildflower come at a fantastic price - and makes for a great place to disconnect from city life and re-connect with nature.
If you like this post, I think I would rather enjoy reviewing some of our other 'finds' .
Have a good week my loves !
