Across the Terekhol river from the Querim beach in North Goa lies the majestic Tiracol Fort. Also known as the Terekhol Fort, this magnificent structure was once a crucial part of the maritime defence of the Portuguese colonists. Today, it serves as the marvellous Fort Tiracol heritage hotel, offering a rare vacation experience different from the cliched agenda of tourists in Goa.
The fort offers visitors an unbeatable panoramic view of the Arabian Sea. The surrounding greenery amplifies the beauty of this imposing fort set atop the picturesque hillock of the Northern river. A charming church lies in the middle of the fort within the courtyard, built in the 18th century during the rule of the Portuguese. This church is not open to the public except for special occasions such as the annual feast that happens in May. However, the architecture of the church and the fort are admirable in themselves, reflecting the Portuguese influence seen across Goa. The hotel today has seven rooms, named after the seven days of the week, served with luxurious amenities like king-sized beds, A/C, Flat screen TVs, coffee makers, bathrooms with rain showers, free Wi-Fi, and private balconies. The decor and design of the room reflect the Portugues heritage of the site, complete with earthy ochre-and-white interiors, black-marbled floors and rustic furniture. Tavern, the terrace restaurant and bar, offers travellers a range of mouth-watering cuisine and refreshing beverages as they take in the surreal view from atop the fort. The Garden Cafe Al Fresco is another amazing dining affair within the premises. Guests at the hotel can engage in activities like coast cruising, river fishing, picnics or just enjoy the serene vibe of this unique hotel, unlike any other in Goa.
