Nestling behind the sand dunes of the sleepy Goan fishing village of Mandrem you will find the Villa Rivercat, situated in between ocean and river.
The villa is the vision of Rinoo Sehgal, a creative
mind, traveller and friend of animals, as well as Anne-Maria, an artist, and their daughter Sareka. Arriving on the site in 1990 all that lay before him was a beautiful river creek flowing into the Arabian sea. Rinoo, inspired by the surrounding nature, began to design and build a spacious retreat from local stone and wood. His dream was of a tranquil environment open to travellers and visitors: a space for creativity, good food, music and rest. Having realised his ambitions for the building Rinoo then began to furnish it with artefacts from his travels and contributions by artists who have since shared his home.
Guests enjoy a close relationship with the tropical environment: exotic trees, shrubs and creepers
line the garden which merges with the lush creek beyond. Visitors may read from the library, gaze through the telescope, practise yoga, marvel at the sunset on the villa's beach or simply relax in the array of hammocks
on the airy verandah. At night they feast on an exquisite array of food by candlelight in the beautiful Miau restaurant.

A friendly welcome awaits you...
