I’m sinking into relaxation mode in lush and festive Goa. My visit here officially feels like a vacation with expansive views like these.
Staying at the O Hotel has felt like an exotic retreat.
Some amenities here include an infinity style pool, rain shower, and spa. Mostly, what I like is the unique architecture and art.
As I am posting this, I sit in the restaurant lounge sipping Masala chai. Above, is a glimpse of the airy restaurant from dinner last night. They offer tasty Asian, Pan Asian, and Chinese cuisines.
Now, onto the highlight of the morning, if I had to pick….
was stumbling into Buddha Arts, a lovely shop located right on the main road. Filled with antiques and treasures…
It’s a trove of sculptures, salvaged panels, and extraordinary novelties. If you are like me this is the really good stuff.
This window built to shelter a deity, and hanging sculptures are just some of the interesting finds. I took home a patchwork pouf, elephant bookends, and antique carved mirror that I cannot wait to find a home (pictures of these are on the way;)
I hope you have all been transported here, for a moment, if only for a tea.
