Goa has evolved. It has gone from “Party from Goa” and “Chill from Goa”, to “Work from Goa”. The world is realising that Goans do hold jobs and need workspaces too. The state has broken a glass ceiling of its own, rebranding its stereotyped identity into something more wholesome. Goa is not just a tourist destination anymore, it’s more. This paradise can be your remote work office. We bet it will encourage you to threaten your boss if they decide to reopen their offices! That is what makes it more than ideal for a perfect remote work escape! That’s why they say that Goa is the new Bangalore!
We’ve been working with digital nomads from all around the world and here’s why they believe that a Goa workation is in, now more than ever!

Socially Distanced by Design
Goa’s rural landscape and sparse population allow space to breathe. The state is socially-distanced by design i.e. no one village, city or town are too densely populated. There is enough space and fresh air for everyone to breathe and move.
You can live slow and not feel like the walls are closing in on you. There is rarely any traffic, especially if you live away from Panjim, Porvorim, Mapusa or Margao – which are the most populated towns in Goa. Every once in a while, when you crave an escape from the city, Goa, India is there for you.
Be close to Nature
Goa’s pride is its natural beauty and its landscapes that are untouched by cruel corporate hands. Work from Goa is a blissful experience because of the green that envelops you, especially during Goa’s monsoons. For a remote worker this will come as a welcome change from the concrete jungles and the traffic jams. We suggest you spend your mornings running on beaches, weekends trekking through waterfalls and crossing rivers on ferries and evenings walking through Goa’s pretty lanes lined with green trees and fields.
Internet/ Power backups sorted at NomadGao
Goa does have its own fair share of problems, of which, network and connectivity can be bad for remote workers. However, NomadGao offers power and internet backup to ensure uninterrupted work at the coworking space. You can take calls and get things done without thinking twice about losing connectivity. Not a bad deal right?
Plenty of Things to do
If you plan your time well, work from Goa can be pretty fulfilling! Your productivity will rise and you can make time for a little exploring too! A coworking space can greatly help beat that morning sluggishness. You’ve got beaches, forts, waterfalls to trek to, museums and millions of pretty cafes and restaurants to help you unwind!
We also have some rustic taverns right down the road at all our properties for your evening unwinding! We recommend pairing cashew feni with a recheado bangdo or wisvon for the most out of the earth experience!
Goa thrives on its susegado ideology! That doesn’t mean we work from our beds, don’t have baths and love being lazy. It just represents a very holistic way of living where you work hard when you have to and rest when you’re done. There’s a time for everything! Goans know how to take care of their mental health unlike the infamous “hustle culture” that has us spending our hard earned bucks on constant therapy sessions! Your work from Goa experience will be the only therapy you’ll ever need!
Work from anywhere or at least hybrid remote work is here to stay. Even if it’s not, why are you giving up on this extremely viable opportunity to work from Goa? Get your digital nomad outfit on! What’s stopping you?
