Escape into the susegaad way of life as the recently upgraded Edge – tropical bar and kitchen at Alila Diwa Goa, opens its doors with a new look, new ambience and an all-new experience. A family-friendly tropical paradise, Edge features a live bar and a show kitchen with views of the infinity pool and the natural Goan landscape of swaying palms and paddy fields.

Conceptualised by renowned design studio, The Busride and led by none other than Ayaz Basrai, Edge takes a departure from the earlier dark tones to create a bright, day-washed tropical space to synergise with the stunning location.

Inspired by the intimacy of verandahs and patios at the resort, guests are nestled within tiny cocoons of plants that open to the stunning Goan landscape surrounding Edge. The tropical bar is designed to be an all-day space, a hop-off from the pool and its deck, seamlessly transitioning into a lovely sundowner spot to enjoy a drink or two with some groovy edgy music for company. Edge exudes a relaxed vibe with warm, natural materials, cement, and terrazzo that blends aesthetically with the ongoing material and design philosophy of the Alila Diwa Goa.

The drinks menu has been curated by bar consultants, Arijit Bose and Pankaj Balachandran from Countertop, Edge offers a familiar yet fascinating journey of fantastic libations. While some are curated exclusively for Edge like the Queen’s Park Swizzle, Northlander, Edgy Negroni, and Corpse Reviver Number Blue, others are inspired by the breathtaking beaches from the world’s edges that have withstood the test of time. One such example is their take on Miami Vice that swishes out of a slush machine and makes for the best drink to cool off with by the pool.
