COVID SAFE STAYS AT ELSEWHERE.Read our latest Covid-19 update.

Our Location
Our location is a bit of a secret. This is purely to protect the privacy of our resident guests. It's best to make a prior booking after which we will either give you directions or arrange transport for you. However, for your information, we are on a spit of land jutting out into the sea cut off from the mainland by a salt water creek. Access to Elsewhere is via a 70 meter long wooden foot bridge across a creek.

We are located in North Goa, about 30 minutes drive from Calangute, Baga or Panjim, 20 minutes drive from Mapusa, and about 45 minutes drive from Old Goa. We are a little over an hour's drive away from Goa's Dabolim Airport.

Getting to Goa
You can fly directly into Goa by Chartered flights which come from the UK. For more information do a Google search for 'Cheap flights to Goa'. There are also a few airlines (Qatar and Air Arabia) with one stop transits flights via the Middle East from the UK and Europe.

Alternatively, you could fly in to Bombay (Mumbai) or Delhi on a scheduled flight (British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Emirates, Air France, Alitalia etc) and then take a domestic flight from Bombay to Goa. We would be happy to provide you with links of all our domestic airlines where you could make online bookings.

The flight from Bombay to Goa is about an hour long, and the flight from Delhi to Goa is a little over 2 hours.

Google Earth
If you use Google Earth, the Goa Airport coordinates are: 15° 23' 8.40" N, 73° 50' 21.30" E.

Should you confirm a booking with us we will provide you with our Google Earth Coordinates.

Car and Driver
Elsewhere can provide a car and driver at an extra charge so that you have the freedom to visit a different beach or in the evenings sample the many restaurants in Goa. We have a book in each house and tent which will provide you with useful information about the interesting things that you could do in Goa.

Yoga
We have a secluded yoga shala under a beautiful Casuarina tree facing the beach. Our yoga teachers specialise in Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin as well as Iyengar.

Massage
We have massage therapists who offer various types of massages in the comfort of your own house or tent. We can craft your massage depending on your needs - therapeutic, calming, rejuvenating or intense. Ayurvedic oils, powders, and/or local alcohol could be used depending on your therapist and your preference.

Bookings & Contact Details
Due to the Coronavirus situation, our booking and payment policy has changed until things stabilize. In order to make a booking, we will accept payments via credit card or bank transfer. Should you need to change dates due to Covid related issues, we will give you a credit note which can be used for alternative dates.

If you would like to make a booking for a tent, please go to the "The Tents" page of this site and make a booking with the details. If you would like to book a house, please go the page of "The Beach Houses" then click on the house of your choice and send us an email with details.

For bookings within this current week only, please call +91 99235 87713 to check for availability. Please note, we are five and a half hours ahead of GMT. Please call between 10 am and 6 pm (India time). Outside of these timings, please send us a WhatApp message and we will respond ASAP.

Mosquitoes
Although Goa has a fair amount of mosquitoes during certain periods of the year, and also Malaria, we generally do not have a mosquito problem since we are surrounded by salt water which mosquitoes do not like. However each bedroom and tent has an electric mosquito repellant which has proved to be very effective. If you need to protect yourself outdoors we suggest you bring repellant cream or spray.

Months of Operation
We have 5 beach houses and 3 tents. The houses are open from the 1st of Oct till the end of May. The tents are operational from the 15th of October till the 15th of May. A large number of our guests are repeat customers who make booking way in advance. It is therefore recommended that you book early especially for the peak seasons.

Internet and Mobile Phone connectivity - (To ruin your holiday!)
We have wifi connectivity in all our accommodation. We have fairly good network coverage in most areas of our property.

Medical Aid
Should you need a doctor we have one on call 24 hours of the day. It is always a good idea to carry the medicines you normally need.

Local Currency
The local currency is Indian Rupees (Rs). The exchange rate will vary from day to day. The approximate conversation rate is 1(UK Sterling) = Rs 100, $1(US) = Rs 75, 1(Euro) = Rs 90.

Dining, Housekeeping & Laundry
We run like a little hotel. We have housekeeping staff who will attend to your house or tent once a day. Should you have any specific need, you can call them on our house phone.

We're equipped to do light personal laundry for a nominal fee.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner is served in our dining shack. You could pre-order over our house phone or walk to the dining shack and order from our menu and pay for what you order at the end of your stay. The cost of a meal per person is approximately 5 to 8 UK Pounds Sterling (approx Rs.500 to Rs.800) depending on what your order from our vast menu. We have traditional Goan, Indian and European cuisine. We have a selection of wines, beers and sodas stocked in a mini-bar in each room and tent. There are tea and coffee machines in all our houses and tents.

Security
Goa has a relatively low crime rate and petty theft can be avoided by taking normal security precautions. We have day and night security guards who patrol the grounds and there are staff around and about all day.

Drugs
The possession and/ or taking of drugs is a serious offence that could lead to many years in an Indian jail even before a trial. We do not ever allow drugs to be brought into 'Elsewhere' for whatever reason. If we suspect that this has occurred, we reserve the right to ask you to vacate the premises - without notice.
