So we discovered this place around a year back and until recently before it closed for the season we had been dining, chilling and relaxing here very very often. Aria is a beautiful pizza bar located in Vagator and everytime we visited this place it never disappointed us be it during the day, early evenings or at nights this place is rocking always.

Their pizzas are to die for and so are the other items on the menu which are mouth watering and class apart as we have tasted almost everything available on it the entire year we've been here... The must try apart from the pizzas is the calamari - " OMG " we miss it so much...

The owner of the Aria is very professional and and has done her best to keep up the ambience throughout the season, we all ThanK you so much for the hospitality and the place ofcourse
Aria beach we will see you again in September, eagerly waiting for the upcoming season... Peace and Love

You walk into a postcard as soon as you enter the gates ....beautiful views of the sea, palm trees swaying to the wind and well-manicured greenery, sit out deck, reception, bar and dining area.The property is on a cliff as the others in the immediate surrounding.

5 well-appointed cottages set into the cliff, all with a sea view. The rooms were comfortable and housekeeping was spot on. There's a sit out/cabana right outside your cottage to chill. Your bed faces the sea which adds to the serenity of this place when you wake up. Tele with limited channels, efficient aircon, mini bar, telecom, mini safe, and wifi was one of the best. The staff was friendly and attentive. There are other properties next door which play music till wee hours of the morning and the sound somehow hits the cottages smack in the face. It is not equally disturbing at the reception level.Maybe the management could look at soundproofing the exposed sides.I did sleep well but I'm not sure everyone would feel the same.Direct beach access from the property to the lil Vagator beach, but there's a lot of climbing to do if you wanna get from the room to the reception /dining/bar or to the room from the beach.That was my cardio for the day so no complaints.This is not a wheelchair friendly place just for info's sake.

Breakfast was served every morning at the restaurant at the reception level. For 5 rooms, there was a live egg station and a limited spread of Indian and continental breakfast foods with fresh fruit. Fresh / tetra pack juice/milk which was great. The views from the dining area were awesome. Dining was good too. It did take time but was freshly prepared and I didn't mind the wait.

The host Geethika is very gracious, attentive and caring. She's always on hand enquiring about your comfort and to help if you needed anything. She offered a lot of suggestions and recommendations about places to visit and places to eat.A superhost which makes the property even more enticing and beautiful, and it's all her !!!

We had ordered for a starter but it took them ages to place it on our table. Eventually we had to cancel it and leave. The place is nice but they really need to revamp the Fnb services. Not worthy at all.

Arrived late afternoon- staff a bit indifferent, ? If they fully spoke English. Got print out of info, no advise re area. Next morning at breakfast, make brother owner present, got a good welcome , map of area and some advice of area. He is there in the mornings. Other owner lady(sister) is there in the evening. She is smiley and helpful. Room good size, bed comfy, quiet fan and AC unit. Fab views. First we were in Room 5, great as not overlooking any of the hits, but sitting area outside small bench. So moved to Room1 larger relaxing bench, again great views. ? If you want the bigger bench or not. As it was hot not many people spent really any time on the bench outside the rooms. All beach shacks do sun-beds, just get a drink from them. We arrived Sat- loud music playing from early eve- did worry we wouldn’t get any sleep but only a hum in room- no problem sleeping last 3 nights even though all the restaurants play music so loud- not great to eat in a night club.
Not my ideal choice but they follow suit, pity one doesn’t do something different. Beach lovely, rustic, rugged, relaxing( apart from the beach sellers) great sunsets.
No music to wake you in the morning- I was worried the loud music may be a problem but not- both of us slept well. Lots of beach restaurants and also lots of restaurants on the cliffs, all walkable at night. Shame all the stalls are all the same, wish one would sell something different. Will try Anjuna market tomorrow. We hired a moped for few days. Went up to Morjim, Mandrem both very similar, long flat beach. Prefer Orzon with its cliffs and palm trees.
Evening drinks at Lucky beach shack, openers great, quick and helpful, offered to turn the light off over our head, and asked us if we wanted some mellow music on instead of the usual loud trance.
Ate lunch at Fish Tails - delicious grilled fish. Will go again before we leave.
Ate our first 3 nights here- pizza good, had twice. Pasta tasty but too creamy for me. The pesto is great- would like just the pesto sauce with pasta, no cream- sure I could ask for that. I asked for fresh mint tea for breakfast and they happy to do.
Great location and team.
