Charlotte and Simon Hayward (a brother-sister team in
case you were wondering) were both born and bought up
in India. They are the fourth generation to live in and
love India and have spent as much time as possible here.
They will be delighted to suggest and help organise side
trips and places to stay out of Goa to their guests who
may be coming to India for the first time.
Charlotte loves India and has traveled extensively in
it, though there are still many places left to see. Goa’s
cultural heritage makes it an amazing place to live and
she looks forward to sharing her experience with you.
She has lived and worked in Japan, Hong Kong and London,
speaks Hindi usefully and is co-writing a book which she
hopes to do more of.
Simon was most recently Creative Director of a large advertising
agency first in Bombay and then in Delhi. He has always
wanted to do up an old house and turn it into a hotel.
What else do advertising people do when they get to forty?
Teach? He loves Goa and feels that India is home. He is
a budding cook - especially in a kitchen where many willing
hands make light work - and his lunch parties in Singapore,
Hong Kong, Wellington and Bombay were invariably long
Hannah and Charlie Hayward.
Hannah and Charlie were born in Hong Kong and bought up in New Zealand. They are staunch Kiwis and are upset to be gradually losing their accents since moving back to school in Hong Kong from Auckland. They usually come to Goa for their Christmas and Easter holidays when Hannah is a brilliant baby sitter and Charlie is a budding barman.
