“This heart of mine was made to travel the world..”
And we decided to choose Goa as our first stop. We were at Waters Beach Lounge And Grill last week, an amazing restaurant situated besides Old Vagator beach with a splendid view.
The restaurant has got multilevel decked terraces carved out of the rock,entry to this beach club from the street is through an indoor Wine Bar reception with a glass face that offers a spectacular view of the sea. 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 way such that it gives a mediterrian look.
Then you can see the lounge bar,which 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 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.
The place has rooftop seating overlooking the beach and offers a view to die for with comfortable seating tables decorated with beautiful curtains and candles. Stunning and breath taking views both in the morning and evening when combined with good food, is something that is unbeatably irresistible.
We tried out various dishes here. Spicy Chicken Wings, Buffalo Chicken Pizza, Chicken Tikka, and Quesadilla to name a few. Spicy chicken wings tasted delicious as they were sautéed in a spicy tangy sauce, Buffalo chicken pizza was made with house dough and buffalo cheese and chicken chunks, Chicken tikka was cooked to its perfection and tasted good too, Quesadilla- a flour tortilla or a corn tortilla filled with a savory mixture containing cheese tasted like heaven and melted in our mouth the moment we took the first bite of it.
Overall the food here was awesome and the restaurant served as a perfect gateway to a calm atmosphere and a serene beach.
With a subtle theme of aqua spread across its many terraced levels,this new destination that features a restaurant, lounge, bar, pool, spa and an indoor club is something which is hard to miss.
Hence travel coffee vogue gives a full thumbs up to this amazing place.
