"Arco Iris”, meaning "Rainbow" in Portuguese is a 200 + years old elegantly restored colonial house built on a sprawling, terraced, 1.5 acre property. The front edge of the property overlooks a seasonal lake which supplements the water requirements of the surrounding paddy fields. The Zuari flows just about a km away behind the property. The proximity to the lake and the Zuari, the abundant greenery in and around the property ensure a scenic setting all through the year.

Arco Iris is located in Curtorim, a quiet village in South Goa, about 7kms to the east of Margao. The village is dotted with seasonal lakes and paddy fields and is often referred to as the “Granary of Goa”. Besides being popular with bird watchers and the attendant photo shoot opportunities that it affords, Curtorim and its adjoining villages house several places of historical interest.The house itself is styled along colonial Portuguese lines with a high plinth, imposing columns, high ceilings and offers excellent year-round natural ventilation. The house has been restored and renovated, true to its heritage and without compromising the modern day requirement for convenience and comfort. During the restoration process, all efforts have been made to preserve the original materials which had originally gone into the construction of the house by using them, at times, for alternate purposes. The end result is a house which reflects a judicious and tasteful blend of the modern and the traditional.

With a built up area of around 7,000 sq feet, the house comprises an “entrada” (foyer), “sala” (living room), dining room, four guest bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and a fully equipped modern kitchen. Three of the bedrooms open into private balconies. It also has a “balcao” (balcony) in front and a courtyard in the rear. The “balcao” or the balcony, is the most social part of the house where any daily activity, be it catching up with neighbours, reading morning newspapers, eating , or just plain lazing can be enjoyed. The “sala” or the high ceilinged living room is reserved for formally receiving and entertaining visitors. The dining room is dominated by the dining table which can comfortably seat 8. All bedrooms have been suitably modified to accommodate en suite bathrooms with modern amenities. The bedroom colours have been given keeping in mind the colours of the rainbow.
