His ability to smoothly blend the east with the west and yet create a harmonious style is what makes Sunbeams such a unique and fascinating experience.
For those interested in the experience of living in old Goan style homes, here’s a heads up! Firstly, it’s not just the interiors at Sunbeams that will hold your attention as the outstanding and mouth-watering food served by Mr. Krishna, the cook of Sunbeams, is a delight itself.
The shaded porch is decorated with Stone Kalinga Lion guards and has comfortable seating arrangements, including a Chinese “Opium” bed, as well as a swing that is perfect for lounging and lazing, drinking and eating, watching TV and reading. You’d be happy to know that the rooms open up to the living area around a magnificent Adao Tree that acts as a canopy.
