    I will be visiting Colva in Goa with my wife and kids, and we would like to stay at The Golden Palms Hotel & Spa and need to find out the prices for a double room.

    We would like to have a room with a balcony is possible.

    We would be getting two double bedrooms, but if there are options for two bedrooms that are interconnecting, that would be better.
