Goa is synonymous with beach, relaxation, and holidays. While southern India is blessed with a long coastline, for the other half of the country Goa is a dream destination. At Rio Goa, a residential campus of 6 acres includes contemporary studio apartments and has a waterfront view of the Zuari river.

The master plan of Rio de Goa revolves around the concept of retaining the culture of Goa and living up to the imagery that it conveys to its tourists. It encourages living in a home as against a hotel, for a brief period.
Built on a contoured site, the open spaces are planned for optimum people-and-nature interactions. The retained contours are altered to form terraces for play courts. The dense coconut and palm grove, and the central courtyard are signature markers of a Goan living.
The secret garden tucked up at the highest elevation on the site, glides down to the infinity pool that merges into the coconut grove. The semi-luxury housing creates a visual and aesthetical connection to the unexplored niche of central Goa.
