  • SLEEP / Boutique & Heritage

Safira is a luxury riverside resort situated a few hundred metres from Morjim beach, surrounded by palm trees and lush Goan countryside. The resort offers 12 well-appointed guest accommodations, a swimming pool, and a multi-cuisine restaurant along with a floating dining area on the river. With direct access to the Chapora river, a private dock and speedboat service, Safira makes for an ideal resting place for those seeking a comfortable stay in Morjim.


  • Safira is a newly constructed and recently opened riverside boutique hotel. Safira is located a short stroll from the resort to Morjim beach, which is protected thanks to the presence of endangered Olive Ridley sea turtles and the conservation programme consequently set up by the state Forest department. This means that the area is exceptionally unspoilt and the beach quite remarkably beautiful.
  • The rear garden of the hotel backs directly onto the river, meaning boat owners can ‘dock and dine’ at Safira’s multi-cuisine restaurant. The hotel also arranges pick-up and drop-off from and to the airport using Safira’s twin-engine Yamaha speedboat, which can also be rented for fishing or dolphin-spotting trips during your stay.


  • The resort offers a fifty-foot pool in the garden - surrounded by manicured lawns and with a poolside bar that serves imported wines, liquors and beers from all over the world. The restaurant is multi-cuisine, specialising in delicious Indian and Italian dishes, and additionally offers a floating dining area on the river. For business travellers, the hotel has a business centre on the ground floor of the hotel with numerous computers, printing and scanning facilities, and a meeting room. There is also free high-speed wi-fi throughout the resort. The affable and efficient staff provides an exceptionally high standard of service, including taxi drop-offs and twenty-four hour room service.


  • Safira boasts three king suites, three super-deluxe rooms and six deluxe rooms, all resplendently completed with marble floors and bespoke wooden furniture imported from the USA. The décor is a pleasing mix of classic and modern, offering style as well as comfort, and there are wonderful views over the river to be enjoyed from the balconies of the south-facing rooms.
