Described by an English Lady as a place replete with “character and romance”, WelcomHeritage Panjim Pousada is a relative oasis of tranquility amongst the hustle-bustle of busy streets. It has the distinction of being one of the few Hindu houses in a predominantly Catholic precinct in Asia’s only Latin Quarter of Fontainhas. Initially rebuilt in the 1930’s, this was the Ancestral Home of the well-to-do Ghanekar Family.
The central “chowk” or courtyard, the Tulsi plant and signature interiors of a traditional Hindu home have been nurtured with affection to recreate the ambience and aura of a gentile Hindu Mansion of the Colonial Era. An aging breadfruit tree in the front Courtyard provides a touch of green to a heavily built locale.
The Hotel has 9 highly individual rooms. The flooring is a harmonious blend of mosaic and the decor, a mix of the old world and antique. Modern Art, period furniture and furnishing are endemic to the property. Coupled with modern facilities all efforts have been made to provide the visitor with a warm and comfortable stay. The serenity and relative tranquility of this period House can be fathomed only by personal experience.
