KAIA Goa – Slow Living on the Arabian Sea

KAIA Goa – Slow Living on the Arabian Sea

Located along the soft sands of Ashwem Beach in Goa, the newly-opened KAIA invites guests to experience quiet luxury amidst the picturesque wonders of the Arabian Sea. This idyllic 10-room boutique hotel also features a private four-bedroom villa, an all-day dining bar, a restaurant and spa – all of which overlook the sea.
Immerse yourself in a myriad of activities, including kayaking, cycling, canvas painting and fishing with villagers, and foster a deeper connection with the locals. From wellness workshops to nature excursions, it celebrates the concept of slow living with all the comfort of modern travel.
“By embracing eco-conscious practices, we aim to inspire our guests to make mindful choices that contribute to a more sustainable future. This investment is so much more than just a business endeavor to me; it’s an opportunity to contribute towards a greener and more responsible future,” shares Bollywood actor and investor in KAIA, Bhumi Pednekar.
The Space
KAIA is tastefully designed with solace and simplicity at its heart. Nature is woven into every aspect of the property from the minute you step foot. Outdoor spaces and design elements echo minimalist aesthetics with an unmistakable tropical feel. The decor is made out of locally sourced materials along with indigenous artwork by village artisans.
For a communal experience, KAIA offers a charming common area where you can read books, play board games, or simply put your feet up. It has thoughtfully designed glass bedrooms, adorned with soothing color palettes, hand-carved bathtubs and high ceilings, bathed in natural sunlight. Much like the rest of Goa, the interiors boast a style that is breezy, relaxed, and laid-back.
The pièce de résistance, however, is KAIA Villa, located bang across the road. Perfect for large groups, it features a private space with four sumptuous bedrooms. Large glass facades overlook the backwaters and a sparkling plunge pool – with direct access to the beach.
Culinary delights
The restaurant showcases a chef-driven menu that celebrates the vibrant flavors of Goan and Indian cuisines, including spicy concoctions like Alleppey Prawn Curry, Kerala Beef Ularthiyathu Bowl and Chicken Pepper Fry.
It also features a two-story, hourglass-shaped all-day bar, where you can indulge in a fun cocktail-making session with seasoned mixologists and put your bartending skills to test. If that’s not enough, a home-style coffee roastery and retail space add to the charm.
Sound healing and wellness
KAIA offers a diverse range of wellness services, each designed to nurture and support your journey towards a healthier life. Experience Sound Healing Meditation, enjoy Handpan Music Workshops, and savor mornings of solitude with Guided Breathwork sessions. Experience the rejuvenating effects of Power Yoga – or Yin Yoga, a gentle practice designed to release stress, improve flexibility, and restore balance.
The Bio-Energy Meridian Massage is a revitalizing therapy using low-frequency pulsed electric signals to cleanse your body and boost blood circulation. The Healthy Back Class is dedicated to pain relief and building strength.
KAIA is open to guests and visitors looking for a serene escape, while still being close to the teeming nightlife of Goa. Pamper yourself with spa treatments that are inspired by ancient Indian traditions, tuck into flavorful coastal curries, and enjoy some real, invaluable down-time.
