Welcome to Village Susegat. The word Susegat (pronounced Susegad) in the native tongue of Goa (konkani) means totally relax, chill out, no stress, do as you feel and enjoy your life.
The understanding of the word Susegat and the love of Goa and its people was the inspiration behind its creation. Village Susegat is nestled in the palm groves of the picturesque North Goa beach of Morjim. The village is a small collection of hand crafted bungalows where everything is geared to giving you that ‘Susegat’ experience.
Our philosophy behind the village is that after many years of travelling around Goa staying in many different places and varied accommodation, was to create a holiday destination of exceptional quality and incredible value for money, which we dont think can be rivalled.
We have achieved this by personally designing and building the bungalows which retain the romance and freedom of living in a traditional bamboo beach hut, but also provide the required security and modern facilities. Obviously, to meet the criteria was a challenge but we believe ourselves and our incredible team achieved our goal by using a mixture of very traditional and modern materials and techniques.
Following the success of the design and build of the bungalows, we turned our attention to designing and handcrafting all the furniture and fittings ourselves, not only for the bungalows but also for the Cafe Bar and our fresh launch “Blues” - The ocean Lounge which we think gives a totally personal and unique feel to the Village.
Village Susegat can be found to the North of Goa, on the beach of the traditional farming and fishing village of Morjim. It is home to one of the remaining nesting sites of the protected Olive Ridley sea turtles. For this reason, powered water sports (jet skis etc) are definitely not encouraged but the likes of windsurfing and kite surfing have become popular.
Village Susegat is approximately 1 hour’s travel time from Goa’s Dabolim airport and approximately 40 minutes travel time to the capital Panjim and the original settlement of ‘Old Goa’ where there are still many historic buildings and churches including the tomb of St Francis Xavier.
We are 15-20 minutes away from the large and lively market town of Mapusa (pronounced Mapsa), where you can buy anything from fresh spices to a shoelace!
The village of Anjuna is located 15 minutes away which on a Wednesday transforms into what was the original ‘hippy flea market’.To the North of Morjim, you will find the small bustling village of Arambol.
Within a walk along the beach or a short local taxi ride, you’ll find a choice of several beach bars and restaurants.
On arriving at Goa’s Dabolim Airport, we suggest you take a pre-paid taxi which is available directly outside the arrivals hall. Alternatively, we will be happy to organise one of our local taxis to collect you from the airport.
If you are arriving on the Konkani Express from Mumbai (Bombay) to either Pernem or Thivim (Mapusa) Railway Stations, we can also arrange for a local taxi to collect you.
