Targeting the niche segment of non-resident Indians (NRIs), person of Indian origin (PIOs) and upwardly mobile businessmen, Mumbai-based Dynamix Group is coming up with premium apartments and villas in Goa.

Inspired by the Portuguese, they are just a few minutes’ drive from capital Panaji and are spread over 140 acres. The project — Aldeia De Goa — is nestled on a hillock with natural springs and is barely 100 m from the sea. Aptly called the seaside hill station, it is a high-end resort village with 300 homes coupled with amenities like club houses, swimming pools and indoor recreation facilities.

Aldeia will also house The Grand Hyatt beach resort. “Our idea is to make this place self contained,” said S C K Puri, in charge of the Aldeia project. Aldeia De Goa, meaning village of Goa in Portuguese, comes in a variety of sea-view homes ranging from ready low-rise apartments, terrace
homes to villas or farmhouses that are closest to the sea. To retain its rustic charm each home has a thatched roof and landscaped gardens that retain the grand old banyan tree and also the local springs, now beautified into rock gardens.

The inner furnishings also resemble the Portuguese era. “The homes come with all structures such as kitchen cabinets and wardrobes and we also provide other furnishings, based on the theme one chooses,” adds Mr Puri.

The project claims to have sold 120 of its 150 ready homes. One can either buy a plot ranging from 340 to 775 sq m or a fully-constructed house. The unit size of the apartments ranges from 3,070 sq ft for a villa to 1,545 sq ft for a two-bedroom terrace home apartment, 1,988 sq ft for a 3BHK and 1,685 sq ft for a 2BHK apartment.

While a small segment of the customers are from Goa who have made Aldeia their home, a majority are looking at it as a holiday home, said senior sales manager Pravin Fernandes. So the company is also allowing buyers to lease their homes to other holiday goers when not in use.

“Goa is for India what Bahamas is for the US, everybody wants a place here. So we thought of creating a way for these people to earn something out of this investment,” he added. While the villas can earn Rs 2 lakh as monthly rent, the apartments can fetch between Rs 45,000 and Rs 1.5 lakh. The management in addition to maintaining security and gardening will also assist customers in leasing out the house to other interested clients.
