One of the newest and most exciting arrivals in what is fast becoming Goa's trendiest nightlife area, Waters Lounge & Grill in Vagator offers a truly luxury lifestyle experience. Set on multiple levels that has been carved into the Vagator cliff, Waters offers a daytime beach club, a restaurant and grill open all day, a lounge bar and an indoor soundproofed nightclub. The property will additionally introduce a Spa by early next year. Styled entirely and eloquently in white and aquamarine, with plush furniture and hand-picked accessories, Waters Lounge & Grill is one of the most stunning venues on Vagator beach. The brand additionally offers a charming and friendly boutique guesthouse in Baga, which is elegantly styled in a similar vein.
OPEN ALL YEAR!

THE SPACE

Overlooking the expanse of seascape from the cliffside in Vagator, Waters Beach Lounge & Grill is a complete luxury lifestyle destination. With multilevel decked terraces carved out of the rock, each boasting panoramic views of the sea, this beach lounge offers a restaurant, a lounge, a nightclub, a spa and a pool as dedicated spaces on each level, along with private sun bathing decks on grass on every floor. The concept here is simple, albeit relatively new to the beach state, a relaxed environment where patrons can eat, drink, swim and watch the sun descend into the azure sea, and then stay on for dinner or a sunset party. 
 
The decor is minimal, elegant and soothing. Crisp, white design elements are punctuated with splashes of aquamarine that perfectly contrast the deep polish of the wooden deck flooring. A smattering of vintage objet d’art, in keeping with the white and aquamarine theme, intersperses this widely contemporary space. Replete with white plastered walls and plush furnishings, combined with an open-air ambience, Waters provides a sophisticated respite from the frenzy of Goa’s nightlife and its tourist hotspots.

The space, design and furniture here have been conceived and customized in-house by the owner’s brother, Azim Mechant, who owns Reb, Blue & Yellow furniture store in Mumbai. 
 

THE RESTAURANT & FOOD

THE RESTAURANT

On the topmost level at Waters, the restaurant takes precedence. Entry to this beach club from the street is through an indoor Wine Bar reception with a glass face that offers a preview of what lies ahead - an 'infinity sea view'.  An open kitchen sits across the bar where guests can watch their meals being meticulously prepared, for alternate amusement.

A few steps away, wide doors usher out on to the terrace that comprises the al fresco restaurant. The restaurant deck is dressed in a quiet elegance of Mediterranean laissez-faire, with wicker sofas painted in aquamarine and buttery white linens and daybeds as a part of table settings, all shaded with a white muslin roof and wispy drapes.

THE FOOD

The menu showcases world cuisine with a special focus on Mediterranean and European delicacies. Wood-fired pizza is a specialty here, while the grill serves up perfectly broiled meats and the day’s catch. For a pick-me-up, the Australian fine coffees and shakes are one-of-a-kind.
 

THE PARTY VENUE

3 Dance-floors on Multiple Levels | Indoor Sound-proof Nightclub | Covered Bar & Open-Air Lounge | Pool w/ Bar & Sunbeds
 

THE LOUNGE BAR

The lounge bar at Waters is an outdoor deck below the restaurant. Carrying forward the design theme of the space, lavish loungers in aquamarine, plush white leather sofas and daybeds make for a relaxed ambiance, ideal to enjoy a drink while soaking in the sunset. At the covered end of the terrace, sits a bar that dominates the width of the space, and where patrons may perch on stools as they sample the cocktails that are expertly shaken and stirred before them.
 
An elevated DJ booth rests on a high stilt over the covered bar area and leads into an indoor soundproofed nightclub a level above. Meanwhile, a level below the lounge, a sun-drenched deck houses the swimming pool, sun-beds and another bar with an outdoor dance floor.
 
Nightly sunset sessions include lounge music and electronic music acts playing Deep house, Tech, Electronic, Funky House late in to the night. 360 degree outdoor Bose speakers have been customised specially for the venue providing state-of-the-art crystal clear sound.
 
The bar menu features specialty cocktails, recipes of which have been crafted by professional mixilogists. The Margarita is a house special and is created of home-made freshly squeezed fruit concentrate. All cocktails are made with imported alcohol only. Flaming shots are also available for the adventurous. Bottle jugglers will perform regularly while fire and podium dancers will be invited for special event nights.
 

THE INDOOR NIGHTCLUB

The indoor glass-walled nightclub accommodates upto 50 guests.  It has been designed to be completely soundproofed to contain the noise levels within the premises to avoid disturbing neighbours when parties continue until the wee hours of the morning. A line up of popular and leading global acts are expected this season at Waters.

BOUTIQUE GUEST HOUSE

Located in the heart of Goa's tourist district in Baga, yet in a quiet neighbourhood, the Waters Boutique Guest House is much sought after and offers a welcome refuge in the bustling Baga area. The homely environment with a tropical garden speaks for the charm of the property.  A temperature controlled swimming pool is at the disposal of guests.

The property was designed to provide the quintessential Goan experience of a sussegad life in a Goan styled home.

THE ROOMS

The guesthouse has 11 rooms in total - 8 boutique rooms and 3 boutique suites, each colour coded with its namesake theme. All rooms are tastefully accessorised with elements from their respective colour scheme.

Each room boasts a four poster bed, an ensuite bathroom and a private terrace. Modern amenities like Wi-Fi, Satellite TV, phone, safe, minibar, coffee/tea maker amongst others are available.

THE STORY

Samar Merchant, a former model from Mumbai, had an active and glamorous lifestyle walking the ramps for many designers, local and foreign alike. He has been vacationing in Goa for most part of his life. As with many of Goa’s residents, he gravitated to the positive vibes and charm of India’s beach State; and finally decided to settle down here. Hailing from a family with a long history in the hospitality business, he had a keen insight of the market and began conceiving opening his own place.

The ubiquitous nature of water and its life sustaining quality has inspired many. Several years ago, when Samar was conceptualising his boutique hotel in Baga, ‘Waters’ was the name suggested by his older brother Azim Merchant. The name struck a chord and fit perfectly for Goa. Waters “Boutique” Guesthouse opened in December 2006.

However, Samar had bigger plans; to converge all one needs for a memorable experience in Goa under one roof. He envisioned a single destination that would cater to dining, partying, entertainment and relaxation.

Samar’s close friend, Sadar Mohammad, was managing food and beverage at Hyatt International in Dubai when he visited Goa on vacation at a time when Samar was idealising his dream project. Destiny had its way and a couple of months down the line, they two friends were working on the cliff-side at Ozran, where at the onset of season 2013-2014, an exclusive leisure space would arise.

The name ‘Waters’ followed its course as a beach lounge and grill. With a subtle theme of aqua spread across its many terraced levels, this new destination that features a coffee shop, restaurant, lounge, bar, pool, spa and an indoor club, is now on its way to fascinate the discerning populace.

The dream does not end here for the pair; Samar and Sadar have plans to take “Waters“ to the beaches of Ibiza and Koh Samui.
