24 hours in Morjim




We were invited to experience the hospitality at Map 5 village resort in Morjim for the weekend and we came back rejuvinated.
Map 5 hotels have a number of properties around India and in Goa aswell, and from what I reckoned this property the village resort in Morjim is one of the newer properties with barely two months since the opening.
what I love about brand new hotels , is that everything is so spotless clean, and everything os in top working condition. The individual log cabins are a treat from the regular apartment style hotel accomadations. they say seeing is believing and that's why we put together a small family video of our stay youtube video of Map 5 morjim


the wood panelled rooms at Map 5 village resort are cozy and very clean. The linen is fresh and the bathroom fitments are all new and gleaming. down side? they have house keeping service only once a day.

almost all rooms have a scenic view of the swimming pool and the coconut trees. This is the view from our room.

the little one loved the bed, comfortable enough for the three of us, with bed lights on both sides, it was convenient to chrge phones :) also the sockets and general fitments in the room were child safe.

walking into the Map 5 village resort, you are transported to a tranquil destination

the beach is right opposite the entrance of the resort, and we enjoyed the most beautiful sunsets and a glorious sunday morning walk at the beach. 

can you spot the bottle cap among the seashells? Morjim beach is a wonderful beach , especially very child friendly. low sloping beach, rolling waves and a very clean beach.

we dined that night in the famous burger factory, which is a few meters away on the same road as Map 5 village resort.



while staying at Map 5 village resort, be sure to catch a meal at Sublime, the very popular restaurant serving international cuisine. this place is a must visit, again down the road from Map 5 at a easy walking distance.

no testament about the comfortable stay we had could beat this picture of my boys sleeping for 10 hours straight. thankyou Map 5 , can we take the bed home?

next morning a walk on the beach proved to be a delight

breakfast is served inthe resort itself, and puris as fluffy as baturas, and north indian style aloo matar bhaji were highlights. Honestly though the breakfast was a bit of a let down, with no fresh juices or fruits on offer, no cold cuts or meats, things which we generally enjoy during our stays. 

lunch was at the recently opened restaurant trip, and again it is situated along the same road, walking distance from the resort.

our favourite place however was the baby pool. merely a meter deep. watch more of the frolic on the youtube video link attached at the beginning of the blog.

While choosing a resort in Goa, we chooses a place close to the beach , a place walking distance from some of the hip and happening places, as well as easy access to great dining options, also a place with clean interiors and baby safe resorts.
Mao 5 village resort ticked most of the boxes for us, and we were glad we could discover this neat and simple holiday destination in such a wonderful setting as Morjim beach.
