Sunshine inside and out by a lively beach
Comfort is king at Bloom Suites hotels, and the resort at Calangute, Goa, is no exception, with the luxurious feel of rain showers in the bathrooms, and Cloud Mattresses on the beds, with their combination of cooling gel memory foam and supportive coils.
The bright, white-and-yellow decor seems to bring the Indian sunshine inside the rooms, which feature balconies, free wifi, flat-screen TVs, safes and mini fridges.
The four-star hotel has a pool with loungers and umbrellas, a cafe, breakfast buffet and lounge and is short walk from an 18th-century church and a four-mile sandy beach.
Lined by coconut and palm trees, the beach has good facilities, as well as a nearby handicrafts market and a selection of bars and restaurants.
Water sports lovers can enjoy activities like sailing, windsurfing, snorkelling, waterskiing, parasailing and kayaking, while at sundown the beach becomes a party scene, wth music and dancing into the night.
