Jessant Valley Holiday Homes, Goa

The weekend at Goa was made memorable by the hospitable staff at Jesant Valley Holiday Homes. I stayed there with my family (4 members), the two rooms we got had ideal yet contrasting balcony views. While one was pool facing the other balcony opened to the beautiful green Jesant valley. I spent some quality time here in the mornings, doing pranayams, breathing in fresh air. I couldn’t believe myself when I heard the peacocks calling from the valley in the mornings.

The resort is located 400m off Aguada Fort road, some 2 to 3kms from beach hence free of traffic noises. The approach is through a side lane, my Nokia here maps guided me correctly to the resort.

The rooms are adequately furnished and not over done in any manner. Spacious and airy, I found it relaxing and comfortable. Kids particularly enjoyed the well maintained pool in the afternoons when it was too hot to visit the beaches.

This is a part of Stay Simple resort chain. They are India’s first value for money chain of leisure accommodation for the budget conscious holiday-maker looking for a real break. They cater to more than just romantic getaways for two, family vacations and group holidays. They package unique holidays, organize corporate off-site events, provide training venues and even offer themselves up as employee incentives through holiday vouchers.


Breakfast again was simple menu but wholesome. Nearby there are many eating joints and also some super markets. If you are not looking for any kind of frilly stay then this is the place. There is lot of charm in simplicity.

The nearest places to visit: Calangute beach, Candolim beach, Aguada Fort, many more, but these are the nearest.
