Goa is a state always in the partying mode. Therefore, if you want to invest in partying, there is no better place than Goa. Look out for some Goa cheap hotels and have a great time. But, before that, let us understand a bit of Goa’s history and culture.
Two Independence Days
Does it sound intriguing that Goa celebrates two Independence Days, one on 15th August and the other on 19th December every year? It is surprising that in spite of being an integral part of India, Goa attained freedom from the Portuguese on 19th December 1961; a full 14 years after India attained hers. This is why you still see glimpses of Portuguese culture in Goa.
A heady cultural mix
Ever since that fateful day in December 1961, all Indians are free to enter Goa. If one is not able to visit the Western World and experience its culture, it does not matter. Goa can give you the same experience in our country itself. Goa presents an intoxicating mix of both Indian and Western culture. Hence, every person in India should visit this beautiful state at least once in their lives.
Go, party hard in Goa
Goa is the land of beautiful beaches. You have Vagator Beach, Calangute Beach, Dona Paula, Anjuna Beach, Baga Beach, and many more. It is the best place in India to go partying. Staying in beach shacks and having a drink right on the beach is one of the biggest attractions of Goa. You do not have such facilities anywhere else in India. This is why couples love to frequent Goa. No wonder, the song ‘Hum Bane Tum Bane Ek Duuje Ke Liye’ reverberates all over Goa. This particular Bollywood film, ‘Ek Duuje Ke Liye’ was shot entirely in Goa.
Let us now look at some of the Goa cheap hotels where you can stay and have a great time.
Hotel Goa’s Pearl – Candolim
Everyone knows that Goa is a land of beaches, churches, and temples. At the same time, you have some historic forts as well. One such fort, Reis Magos Fort is worth having a look. Hotel Goa’s Pearl in Candolim is just about 4 km from this historic fort. Located just about 7 km from Panjim Bus Stand, this hotel has 21 spacious rooms spread over 4 floors. With prices starting from as low as Rs 1481 per person, this hotel qualifies as one of the cheapest hotels in Goa. At the same time, you have amenities that can give a complex to the higher priced hotels. These amenities include AC, extra beds, mini fridge, room heater, en-suite bathroom with bathtub, and so on. The in-house restaurant, bar, and banquet complete the list of excellent amenities you can enjoy here. No wonder, this hotel is the favourite of many.
Colva Residency – Colva Beach
Colva Beach is one of the best places to watch the sunset in its full glory. Naturally, tourists would love to stay in a hotel close to Sunset Beach. Colva Residency is the right choice for such nature lovers. Located at just a stone’s throw distance from Colva Bus Stand, this beautiful hotel has a total of 47 rooms with all the facilities one expects a decent accommodation to have. It does qualify as one of Goa cheap hotels as the fares start from as low an amount as Rs 1800 per person per night. Colva is accessible by rail as well as the Madgaon Railway Station is just about 8 km away. In addition to the Sunset Beach, you have other beaches as Majorda Beach and the Betalbatim Beach located at a distance of around 5 to 6 km.
Epitacios Resorts – Calangute
Calangute Beach has the distinction of being the second longest beach in India after the Marina Beach in Chennai. One of the most popular places for partying around because of the easy access to the local intoxicant, Kaju Feni, Calangute is the favourite location for all party lovers. It is really a great experience to rent a shack right on the beach. But, for security reasons, it is advisable to stay at some of the Goa cheap hotels in the vicinity such as Epitacios Resorts. This is a small resort having just 6 rooms, but it is perfect for having a great party atmosphere. Located very close to Baga Beach and Calangute Beach, this resort has all the major amenities available in more expensive hotels. Attractively priced at just Rs 1799 per person per night, this resort is certainly a steal.

Booking these resorts should not be an issue at all because you can do so online. Experience the hospitality and culture of Goa and you will understand why the couple sings, ‘We are made for each other, Samjhe’ in the same song from the film, ‘Ek Duuje Ke Liye’.
