Food gains a very epicurean meaning
when you have a setting like Olaulim Backyards. For us, it recreates
the beauty of cooking with original ingredients and the philosophy
is to create maximum with the minimum. Thus you will find sheer
poetry in your every meal, served by the poolside, sourced from
fresh seafood and locally grown vegetables which is then cooked
on a traditional wood-fire. Though our cuisine is predominantly
Goan with its fascinating siesta-inducing flavors, we could re-jig
a bit, here and there, to accommodate your requests for your favorite
dishes. Alcohol and soft-drinks – just let us know and we
will do our best to get it for you.
Goa is a haven for tropical fruits.
In our backyard we grow papaya, banana, chickoo, pomegranate, lime,
pomelo, custardapple and cashew. And not to forget the delicious
goan mango in the months of April and May, when also freshly roasted
cashewnuts, which have a flavour apart, add to the culinary experience.
It goes without saying that throughout the year, most of the fruits
served at the breakfast will be garden fresh.
We have built our eco
cottages according to our commitment to reduce the impact on environment,
with more soul than luxury. That is why we take actions to conserve
water and electricity, compost waste food, recycle wherever possible
and use bio-degradable cleaning agents. For hot water, we use solar
panels. We have also used reclamation building materials, renewable,
natural furnishings, installed eco friendly lighting and as much
as possible, try to source organic food locally, offer local employment,
instruct staff in green practices and care for wildlife in our area.
