If you have ever wondered why Goa, with all its hippie elements, doesn’t have a Rio de Janeiro kind of a Carnival culture, that could come alive just before the start of the holiday season --- well, you are definitely in for a surprise!
Situated in the heart of Goa’s bustling sandy beach, Calangute, Ocean Palms Goa has kicked off a hot, new weekend event property – Ocean Palms Carnival that promises to get bigger and bigger with every new weekend edition.
Those who missed out on the fun, can draw solace from the fact that there are four more editions left of the specially-curated Ocean Palms Carnival, during the course of the December month.

“Awesome resort to stay. The staff and services are simply outstanding. Highly recommend for families, couples and even groups. Food also is excellent,” declares one guest, Umang Chadha in his recent review.
