There are many hotels and resorts in and around Diu, from 3-star to the budget category in the town and on the beaches, with most having their own restaurant and bar. The one place you must check out if you wish to unwind is Resort Hoka (Tel: +91-2875-253036; Tariff: INR 1,950-2,150), 8 km from Diu. Surrounded by the scenic Hoka branching palms, it’s a small resort that is very close to the Nagoa Beach.

Started by the young Aditya Dogra, who set up a modest 10-room hotel, the resort is a 12- room boutique hotel today, with rooms that are simple, well-designed and each has a private verandah. Hotel Samrat (Tel: +91-2875-252354; Tariff: INR 1,000-1,550 and Hotel Cidade de Diu (Tel: +91-2875-254595; Tariff: INR 2,200-3,300) are in Diu town. Sugati Beach Resort (Tel: +91-2975-252212; Tariff: INR 2,200-3,700) and Magico do Mar (Tel: +91-2875-252567; Tariff: INR 2,750-3,250) are on Ghoghla Beach.

Radhika Beach Resort (Tel: +91-2875-252553-55; Tariff: INR 2,550-4,050), Hotel Kohinoor (Tel: +91-2875-252209; Tariff: INR 2,650-4,650) and Rasal Beach Resort (Tel: +91-2875-255402; Tariff: INR 3,050-3,550) are on Nagoa Beach. Hotel Kohinoor has a water world and a swimming pool, while the Rasal Beach Resort offers a restaurant and a bar.

It goes without saying that seafood, preferably on the beach, is a must in Diu. The place also offers plenty of Goan and Portuguese cuisine. There are several places to try these out. Bon Appetite restaurant opposite St Paul’s Church offers a variety of Goan and Portuguese cuisine but orders have to be placed in advance.

The place is better known as Fatima D’Souza’s Restaurant. Though Nagoa Beach has many restaurants and eating joints overlooking the beach, Resort Hoka is one of the few garden restaurants here. It has a bar and offers excellent seafood (even though the menu is limited). The best part of Hoka is its food — fresh and home cooked. Order in advance.

Another option is Dubchik (a pleasant place to have a drink when not crowded). Do check the variety of options in terms of other places to eat in and around the area. Jardin D’Hoka, opposite Casa Ana in Firangiwada area, is recommended for breakfast and brunch. They make their own jam, while their seared tuna and rice, corned fritters and poached eggs on toast are delicious and a musttry. A pleasing garden restaurant, it is also a good meeting point. Open 8 am to 3 pm. If you can’t tackle spicy fare, don’t hesitate to inform the waiter.
