Goa's Bay 15: A Cabana Kind Of Love

I'm here at this beautiful boutique property called Bay 15 on Odxel Beach, close to central Goa. Just two kilometres from Dona Paula and about 10 minutes drive from Panaji. So close to all the bustle of those touristy spots and yet so serene in its seclusion. This is a different pace from my usual Goan holiday, where I'm trying to savour many different experiences within the span of a few days. This beach, that restaurant, this spa, that sport, this drink, that dish... It's what we do in the big city and find hard to divest ourselves of when we travel. This time, I've decided to stay in one place and let the peace seep into my pores.
