Our first Christmas treat for our guests is a "Christmas in Goa" itinerary aimed at giving our guests an immersive Goan Christmas experience. Hazel's location on the winding lush green street of Vaddy, Siolim at just a short 2-minute ride from the iconic 400 year old St. Anthony Church Siolim, with houses adorned with handcrafted stars, intricate nativity scenes, and the warm glow of fairy lights, create a magical tapestry across Siolim's charming by lanes, that our guests can experience firsthand on their evening stroll down the road. On Christmas eve, as the clock strikes midnight, St. Anthony Church comes alive with melodious Konkani carols, a hallmark of Goan Christmas. And as the midnight mass concludes, we recommend them to linger a little longer in the captivating ambiance of St. Anthony Church, exchange greetings with fellow revellers and maybe even meet travellers from all over the globe promising a night filled with the warmth of Goan hospitality, the taste of Christmas delights, and the joy of making memories that will linger long after the season has passed.


With our personalized Christmas to-do guide for our guests, we recommend they spend their evenings filled with the irresistible aroma of Goan delicacies - be it the sweet bebinca or the spicy rum cake as they navigate through traditional bakeries and 100-year-old cafes serving Christmas goodies, explore eateries hosting festive brunches, and discover hidden Christmas markets. Our Christmas in Goa itinerary includes offbeat gems like Confiteria 31 De Janeiro Bakery in Panjim, one of the oldest bakeries in Goa, and also friends of The Pause Project, where The Pause Project guests can savour complimentary Goan Christmas treats like Dodol, Guava Cheese, Christmas cookies and so much more! It's an invitation to savor every nuance of Goa's unique Yuletide celebration. Amidst the natural charm of our glasshouse spaces that invites the essence of the Goan forest, The Pause Project undergoes a festive makeover to capture the spirit of the holidays. Our dedicated staff orchestrates this transformation, infusing every corner with the magic of the holiday season. Along with a Christmas tree standing tall at the entrance, adorned with the colors of celebration, fairy lights dance gracefully in the lobby, kitchen, and hangout corners, casting a warm and inviting glow that transcends the ordinary. The collective effort aims to create a cozy festive ambiance that resonates throughout the space. Adding a touch of whimsy, our all-female Santa team joyfully welcomes guests on Christmas morning. Stockings filled with delightful treats and their signature smiles await, embodying the heartwarming hospitality of Goan traditions. The goal is to ensure that every nook and cranny exudes the essence of the holiday season, creating a homely space where the spirit of Christmas comes alive. We want our guests to take away the true spirit of Christmas along with the local flavour of Goa - the warmth of hospitality, the joy of shared moments, and the magic of being in a 'surreal home away from home.' In addition to the usual beach visits and party hotspots, we also love to help our guests explore the offbeat side of Goa, steeped in Goa's multicultural traditions and intriguing history. Hazel at The Pause Project offers a chance for our guests to experience a blend of local festivities and personalized experiences, hopefully leaving them with cherished memories of a Goan Christmas and the spirit of the season in their hearts."
