In 2003, Mumbai-based fashion photographer Denzil Sequeira opened up his ancestral compound to paying guests. Four colonial beach houses and three candy-colored tents sit at the water's edge; for the most affordable option, book one of the latter, outfitted with a muslin-draped four-poster bed, a fully modern bathroom, private lanai, and your own wooden pier. The hotel is set in a forest of towering coconut trees on a hidden spit sandwiched between the Arabian Sea and a saltwater creek, near the former Portuguese port of Goa. Recent celebrity sightings have included Bollywood belle Preity Zinta. Ask manager Vinod Pednekar to arrange an afternoon dolphin cruise with local fishermen.
