The International Centre

The Festival venue does provide very comfortable accommodation at a very reasonable rate. Participants will need to book directly with the International Centre mentioning you are part of the Festival.

Please note, there are only 42 rooms, and these will go very quickly. Nearby the International Centre, there are a variety of other hotel options, all within walking distance. Please use booking.com or Airbnb to organise. If you want the ultimate heritage colonial accommodation experience, we recommend the Panjim Inn www.panjiminn.com/  which is a shirt taxi ride away from the Festival venue.
