Mahatma Gandhi once said “happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony”, and that is the philosophy behind the concept of The Highland Heritage, a truly unique homestay experience set in the heart of North Goa which is unlike any guesthouse or hotel in the state. Surrounded by the lush greenery of wooded foliage and distanced from the commotion of city life, the twin villas of The Highland Heritage welcome you to take a walk into the past, when the colours of nature were vivid and pure, and the songs of birds were commonplace.
With a vision to recreate the bygone Portuguese era, Devadas Y. Naik, owner of The Highland Heritage has shaped a realm where all manner of modern grandeur is set aside in favour of the allure of the erstwhile Indo-Portuguese styling, which provides a sense of comfort and opulence, complimentary of that memorable time period. From the crystal chandeliers that adorn the ceilings of the main villa foyers, to the carefully selected antique hand-crafted wooden furniture in every room, the stories of yesterday have been made a part of the present. Constructed on a vast 2.5 acre property located in the serene village of Porvorim in North Goa, The Highland Heritage is surrounded by more than 10,000 square meters of landscaped gardens and a remarkabletended forest which houses nearly 30 different species of trees.While wandering down the natural paths, searching for your own spot of solitude, it’s hard not to be captivated by these age-old trees that flower and bear fruit with the changing seasons, while also attracting various species of birds that make this sylvan nirvana their sanctuary.
With the aim to create an environment devoid of disturbance, at The Highland Heritage we have crafted a living experience that encourages our guests to feel at home. It’s a homestay that will make you want to make Goa your home for more than just a weekend. Welcome to The Highland Heritage.
