Perfect Escape to Goa
People living in metros, often crave for a peaceful getaway to a scenic destination, where they can relax and soak in the serene beauty of nature. After all, the constant hustle and bustle of a busy city life, is bound to slow one down and calls for an energy recharge.
While there are numerous places to plan the “perfect getaway”, Goa has been the country’s “go to destination”, for letting one’s hair down and living it up. Be it a long weekend or an extended seven-day vacation – Goa never disappoints and has something for everyone. Not just popular with revellers who want to have fun, the coastal state has long been attracting attention from personalities such as writers, academics, musicians, and filmmakers, for creative inspiration. And some of them have even gone on to make it their home.
What if a city dweller with a regular 9 to 5 job also had the choice of owning a home in a getaway hub? Though Goa has always been on top of everyone’s holiday list, has it ever crossed your mind that you could buy a house of your own here? Embrace it in a manner that the land of sun, sand and sea remains not just another getaway destination, but a place where you possess your very own second home. For those sold on the idea of buying their dream home to which they can escape to fulfil their need of unwinding from the “madness of the city”, Tata Housing has launched its Rio-De-Goa project in December 2016. With a slew of top-notch amenities and picturesque locale, this property is an ultimate destination for leisure homes.
Spread across 5 acres, Rio-De-Goa is a premium resort themed residential project, which offers luxurious Duplex and 2BHK homes. For starters, it is strategically located near the Goa International Airport at Dabolim and only 4-5 km from the Bogmalo beach. Depicting, the 24/7 fun flavor of Goa, the property is equipped with unique lifestyle amenities. Imagine sipping a cold glass of wine or beer sitting at a roof top infinity pool, a sky café for that perfect vacation date and a centrally located active green zone to bust the stress of city life.
Designed to accommodate a lifestyle that’s grander and fuller than what most experience in Goa, this estate, is a testament to the company’s penchant for developing projects that strongly resonate with consumers. With bountiful sun, sea, and greenery, Goa is a nature lover’s delight. The air is clean, the food is great, and the crowds are sparse, except on festivals and occasions of revelry. Everyday essentials like food, drink, electricity, and petrol cost less than in the metros. What more? The property rates are quite lucrative with Duplex just being at Rs.76Lacs All-Inclusive and 2 BHK at 89Lacs All-Inclusive. Goa also offers ample facilities for sports, travel, outdoor excursions, and recreation.
While the laid back, slow-paced Goan lifestyle is not made for every living soul, especially the city folk, who are always charged up to seize the day. Buying a home in Rio-De-Goa will make for a sound long-term investment and of course the perfect plan, for the perfect escape.

Live the resort life every day in your own home – here’s how
Touristy beaches and happening party places on one hand, and secret backwaters, lush countryside, and lazy rivers on the other. Adventure sports as well as spiritual retreats. Continental breakfast and vindaloo. Destination weddings and a wanderlust’s comfort zone. The contrasting combination of culture, cuisine, landscape and lifestyle makes Goa truly unique. Its identity is a combination of two distinct worlds and goes deeper beyond the popular tourist designation tag.
And, unlike many other villages or small towns which have limited avenues for work and lack basic modern amenities, Goa allows its people to live a cosmopolitan life, grow professionally and, at the same time, enjoy the laid-back atmosphere.
It is this quality that makes Goa so attractive to jaded urban professionals who have had their fill of the traffic snarls, pollution, increasing cost of living, and the fast-paced city life, with little time to truly relax.
A growing favourite with startups tooPeople from all walks of life across India are beginning to call Goa home. While some bring their jobs with them and work remotely, others have taken the plunge and started working on their dream projects. Not surprisingly, Goa is evolving as a keen startup founders’ destination.
In fact, the early entrants that made Goa their base when the startup scene was still nascent have shown that growth is possible like in a big city. Startups like Fleetrover – enterprise software for fleet management, Browntape – a cloud-based platform for multi-channel online sales, and Beard Design, a design studio, are local heroes. There are also a whole host of other startups, both in technology and other sectors – LawMate, for instance, helps startups with legal compliance.
Goa also has a close-knit and supportive startup ecosystem. While organisations such as the Goa Chamber of Commerce and Goa Entrepreneurs Mentoring Services organise mentoring sessions for SMEs, 91Springboard, eChai and several other groups are working together to enable startups to build their network, grow their business and co-learn with the community.
You won’t miss the fast lifeOf course, there are challenges and sacrifices to be made when families or professionals decide to uproot themselves from their comfort zones and make a fresh start. But these are small when compared to the advantages. Dattaraj Desai, an investment consultant who moved to Goa after spending more than a decade in Mumbai, would endorse this. When he decided to become an entrepreneur a year ago, it was Goa he chose as his new headquarters.
“Being an entrepreneur, there is always so much work to do every single day. That said, I still find time to indulge in leisurely activities. I get to go the gym, meet a friend, or just enjoy a leisurely walk. I don’t have to wait for the weekend to do these little things I enjoy. This is in sharp contrast to my life in the city. No doubt it’s the city that helped me move up the corporate ladder. But, I couldn’t afford time for anything beyond work because of the long commute and the fast-paced life.”
Live your dream life at a fraction of the costIf you are looking to reboot your life in Goa, it only makes sense to invest in good property. And, there are plenty of options to choose from – from swanky villas to budget homes to gated communities. One such property is the Rio-De Goa, a project by TATA Housing. What makes this an ideal choice is that this expansive project is situated in South Goa near the Goa International Airport, Vasco railway station and the Zuari river. With a centrally located active green zone, open air longue, yoga deck, meditation garden, exercise terrace, sauna, and a rooftop infinity pool, you get to experience the Goan resort life, every single day.
Working on a dream project, spending quality time with loved ones and doing the things you enjoy the most -- don’t you want this to be your life? Wouldn’t you want to call this place your home?
There’s never been a better time than now to go out and make it happen.
Goa and the allure of the quiet life

Goa and the allure of the quiet life
Many of us, who have been born and brought up in cities, would like to believe that this is as good as life gets. The city provides for everything we identify with – education, careers, medical facilities, necessary amenities, entertainment, luxury, and so on. And yet, we like to visit serene, scenic holiday destinations with family or friends every time an opportunity presents itself. We spend a blissful time during the stay, and feel sorry when it is time to get back to the city.
Now, why is that?If the city life is indeed what we have chosen for ourselves, why should there be a pang of regret in returning to it? We put up with the crowds, pollution, stress, and unhealthy habits that urban life entails, but there’s a part of us that yearns for peace and quiet. A life that allows us to be in touch with our true motivations; a life that frees us from the unending cycle of wanting more; a life that unfolds at the pace we want, instead of dragging us in its wake.
No place in India symbolizes this life better than Goa.
Goa has always held an attraction for people with creative inclinations – writers, academics, musicians, and filmmakers. But in recent years, it has increasingly begun to interest corporate professionals, entrepreneurs, and people who choose to pursue off-beat interests. It is a veritable melting pot of aspirations and outlooks, and it graciously makes space for each.
Life in Goa makes the sacrifices and adjustments seem worthwhile.
Not everyone who arrives here is rich or seeking riches; there are people who have quit corporate jobs in cities, and come to Goa to become spiritual healers or canine behaviourists. Nor is everyone who settled here nearing retirement; many couples prefer to raise their kids in Goa. People don’t necessarily go for a Portuguese-styled villa overlooking a paddy field or a beach; they make do with a simple apartment. But everyone, whether they’re renting a home or buying one, is happy to make whatever adjustments it takes in their work, life, and play, just to stay in Goa. They find inventive ways to match their skills to Goa’s needs. Possibly the best part of living in Goa is that it shows you the true value of money – and that you don’t need too much of it to be happy.
Goa just lets you be, and lets you explore your personal interests.With bountiful sun, sea, and greenery, Goa is a nature lover’s delight. The air is clean, the food is great, and the crowds are sparse, except on festivals and occasions of revelry. Everyday essentials like food, drink, electricity, and petrol cost less than in the metros. Property rates are low, so you can easily rent a sprawling villa for less than what you would pay for the average two-bedroom apartment in Mumbai’s Bandra. Goa also offers ample facilities for sports, travel, outdoor excursions, and recreation. The small population of Goa allows its inhabitants to have a good life.
More importantly, whoever you are, and whatever you do, Goa lets you be. It has great tolerance and respect for the privacy and the choices of individuals. On the other hand, it is very easy to be social here.
If you know one person, they will introduce you to the next, and so forth. And before you realize it, you will know everyone.
Living in Goa is not everyone’s cup of tea, especially those who wake up every morning turbo-charged, looking to throw themselves into the fray of another day. But for those who seek a slower, quieter life, with a peaceful wine glass by their side, there is no better place to be than Goa.
