    I'm looking for a beach resort in Goa and bit confused in choosing a best stay option at reasonable rates. I tried to search at google and found "Lemon tree amarante beach resort". Does anyone have idea about this resort?

    Overview

    The Lemon Tree Amarante Beach Resort is operated by the Lemon Tree Hotels, a midscale chain of hotels company. It is located in Candolim, just about four minutes away from the beach. Blending modernity and tradition, with its trendy newer building and also its heritage home turned hotel, the Lemon Tree Amarante Beach Resort caters to a wide range of clientele. Their mid-range room rates coupled with high-class facilities and services give their guests the best value for their money. Its central location means that guests can enjoy the beach and commercial areas in Candolim too.

    The Vibe

    Ever wanted to be transported back to the Portuguese colonial era? The Lemon Tree Amarante Beach Resort can give you that experience. With elements of Portuguese styles of architecture, like the stained glass windows, along with framed wall paintings, the bygone era becomes alive. The hotel is very cozy though as it isn't too huge in size. You would definitely feel right at home, with the comfortable furnitures and simple additions of lamps and small statues. Yet there are still elements of modernity, with the aesthetically designed swimming pool and also the funkily-designed restaurants. So if you're tired of the usual hotels and want a bit of a heritage feel to your stay in Goa, the Lemon Tree Amarante Beach Resort might work well for such standards.
