Palms of Goa
Where? Goa, India
Exactly? The Taj Holiday Village, Candolim
When? January 2012
Why? Annual family xmas trip to India
Best time to go? During winter peak season which runs from November to March, the weather is warm and pleasant. You can also go in the summer which falls from March to May, but it can get unbearably hot.
Local knowledge? Thanks to Jade Jagger, Annabelle and Sophia at Greene and Sheppherd PR and Bev Malik at Depths of Field, all lovers of Goa.

Goan style is bohemian and eclectic. The vibe? Think laid-back beach looks during the day, wear palazzo or harem pants with slouchy vests, maxi skirts, sari-fabric sarongs and kaftans. For the evening the look varies depending on where you go, if you’re heading to beach bars and cabanas you can just stay in your day outfit, it’s very chilled out here. But if you’re heading out for dinner at a 5 star hotel or going clubbing, the look is much more bling-tastic. Heels are a personal choice, but be warned, many of the streets have pot holes and uneven surfaces, so don’t bother if you’re going to be walking.
