Shoe Bites: Dreaming of an Alila Diwa Escape

I had the immense pleasure of staying at the Alila Diwa in Goa back in December, and it’s a hotel that you just can’t help but fall in love with. The staff becomes part of your friends towards the end of your trip and that’s what I love most about any hotel; the feeling of home when you’re away.
