Welcome to Silva Heritage!

Silva Heritage is a 350 year colonial mansion which is a fine example of the confluence of 2 cultures, Portuguese Catholic and a subtle Hindu past. It is one of the few grand houses surviving today . While we have all modern facilities in our rooms, their character remains timeless.

Nestled in the sleepy village of Benaulim, time seems to stand still and you are transported to an era bygone, witness to the classic Goan way of life, slow and easygoing ‘Susegado’. Here you will catch a glimpse of the local baker selling his ‘poi’ and cattle herd rearing the goan water buffalo and if you are lucky the peacock will come calling in the evenings.

The setting is perfect if you want to drift away into solitude, away from the bustling crowds and cacophony of life today.

We at Silva heritage want to offer you a slice of the Goa we cherish and wish to showcase to the world.
