Located within the enchanting Siolim Village in Bardez, North Goa, Tesò is a hidden paradise, fringed by the peaceful waters of the Chapora River. Amid blue skies and warm sunny breezes merging into verdant surroundings, the resort gently transforms into a chic party spot by sundown. But there’s more to Tesò than just its idyllic location. It offers a one-of-a-kind experience which combines living, dining, partying and rejuvenating.
The resort comprises of seven luxurious guest tents with private river-front decks and en-suite massage facilities, an elegantly furnished and decorated pavilion, a restaurant serving Mediterranean and local delicacies as well as specialty grills and ‘Tesò'tique’, the private boutique. Tesò also regularly host great parties and entertainment events, with well known live music acts.
From the winding road of the peaceful Siolim Village, Tesò is easily identifiable by the green lights that illuminate the palm trees, sprouting from behind the walls that make up the courtyard-cum-parking area. Through the entrance gates, follow the path, where the boutique is on the left, and into the large open space that makes up the main area, which also includes the al fresco restaurant.
Individual seating areas line the forefront of this space, overlooking the Chapora river. Wooden box frames with white padded sofa seating surround a low table, and flowing white drapes provide for a perfect place to enjoy one of Tesò’s gorgeous cocktails and spectacular sunset views. For dining, chic white wicker tables with chairs adorned with the contrast of red padding are dispersed amidst towering palm trees. Soft lighting from lamps in trees, Moroccan lanterns and scattered candlelight create a romantic and relaxing atmosphere. The food is delicious, the view superb and the events highly enjoyable.
