Waters Beach Lounge and Grill | Vagator
Goa is known for its thriving nightlife with people from all over the country visiting the state to be a part of it. If clubs are too mainstream and you feel you need a change, welcome to Waters, lounge and grill.
It isn’t like every other club you have seen, beckoning at a uniqueness and suave of its own. Located at the edge of a cliff boasting of multiple levels each incised into the rock and overlooking the serene Ozran beach, Waters is solely noticeable by spotlights dancing in the sky calling out for a fun filled evening far away from the noise and chaos that is usually Baga.
Being lucky enough to talk to the owner of the lounge and grill, Samar Merchant, explained that the entire conceptualization behind Waters was purely his dream to deliver a rich and exquisite experience to visiting tourists as well as Goan’s. Apart from running Waters Lounge and Grill, he also balances managing a well established boutique guest hotel in Baga sporting the similar name.
Keeping true to the surrounding nature of Vagator, Waters has not been influenced by any one facet of any one location, you will notice bits of South American, Brazilian, South East Asian influences, while not forgetting to keep the whole Goan vibe going. Each of which has been expertised and supervised by Samar who is nothing but a true perfectionist. Everything from the rustic wood fired earth oven to the elegant and classy cabanas has had his touch involved.
Multiple levels each ranging from a fine dining area which is elegantly decked with the lush comforts of snug wicker arm chairs to clean and cosy cabanas coupled with the picturesque view of the sun setting over the rippled waters of the Ozran beach negates all urges to move from your spot.
Constantly smiling servers cater to one’s every request as bringing in savory and piquant dishes that are fit for an aristocrat. Their menu ranges from everything between European to Asian cuisine. The authentic Italian Pizzas, the Chicken Wings with goat cheese and the Chicken Quesadilla complete with a side of sweet peanut butter sauce are the most definite must haves to name a few.
You would be doing a complete injustice to yourself if you haven’t sipped the Water’s signature cocktail, their in-house Margarita. A sip of this along with the soothing ocean breeze is sure to leave you contemplating about moving to Goa.
The good time at Waters does not end by a long shot when the sun sets. Decked with multi coloured rice lights at every corner, Waters throws open its doors to anyone and everyone willing to dance into the night.
Waters sports an open air dance floor on the second level complete with a circular elevated Dj booth who does nothing short of raining down Electronic, Techno, House and Trance tracks down your way. Patrons rarely tend to move away from this level courtesy of the good vibes, well stocked bar and an amazing view of the moonlight casting a luminous pathway on the ocean. Complete with an indoor dance floor as well, the party at Water never goes out.
More of a lazy holiday lover? Dont fret….the last level of Waters will spoil you so. Lounging chairs, a spa and an alluring pool decked with gorgeous pool lights along with a charming glass walkway gives you an abundant sense of ease and comfort as you relax and rejuvenate for the day.
Raising the bar for hospitality establishments all over Goa, Waters definitely stands alone. If you want to be part of the experience, come on over.
