Bay15 on rocky Beach Odxel of Goa - An interesting place for food and fun, but not sure about staying here

During our office visit to Goa, we had planned one evening at Bay 15 which is situated on Odxel beach around Dona Paula area of Goa. This blogpost shares more about Bay-15, it's surroundings, services, food, music and other relevant details along with my viewpoint about the celebrations with approx 100 people in their restaurant. Let's get started.

When we reached the place, it looked like a huge space. Before reaching Bay-15, I thought it's a beachside restro-bar where are going to have fun. But it looked very different and space-wise a huge compound. After waling around and exploring the beach-side, I realised that it's a resort where people stay as well. The immediate thought in my mind was - why people stay in a resort which is in front of rocky beach, but it's personal choice and may be I am unable to appreciate the importance of rocky beach.  My personal choice will always be a sandy beach, where I can walk barefeet, go into the water to enjoy splashes and may be go a little deep. All that sounds impossible on the beach in front of Bay15, as the rocks and small rock-pieces can hurt you.

Anyways, it was monsoon day with nice wind and a decent sunset. Most of us grabbed our drinks and stepped out to stand around the edge to witness the setting sun with waves in the foreground making some soothing sounds.

Monsoon clouds around Bay-15 were trying to scare us a little but all of us were brave and ready to party. This was also the time of the evening when live music was being played at Bay-15 and both the singers were too good. The video below will give you some flavour about the live music at Bay-15. Sorry for bad video as I was standing out when I shot this one.   Related Blogpost - Interesting rock-dwellers on the beaches of Goa

Soon after the live music, DJ came and rocked the place. Organisers from our side had ensured that the music is 'inclusive' and different kinds of regional music is played. I can confidently say that people enjoyed it a lot and danced till very late. As usual, everyone wanted to continue the dance party but music was only allowed till 10pm, so loud music was stopped by that time.

When I am writing this blogpost, I am realising that I didn't click much at Bay15 and that may also mean that I had good time talking to people, enjoying food/drinks etc. I loved the food at Bay15. Amongst all food options I tried during this trip in Goa, I found Bay15 food the best. Without going into much details, the food was very well made, served and flavourful. So here I recommend this place for having a good meal on the seaside. One can plan lunch or dinner. With a disclaimer that I don't have any clue how this place looks on usual days in terms of ambience and setup, as setups/ambience is perceived differently when you have whole place for yourself.

Apart from food, drinks and fun part, I liked the amount of space Bay15 has. It's a stunning looking property in Goa with ample space to walk around. When I say this, please don't compare it with spacious resorts of South Goa which has huge sandy beaches.

Overall we had good time at Bay15 in Goa. Will I repeat it? I don't think so, as Goa as so many other places to explore :).
