Where to stay in Daman

Unsurprisingly, most of the accommodations in Daman lie close to the sea. Beachside resorts and towering hotels offer coastal views, beach access (or even private beaches), onsite restaurants, and bars. Some particularly luxurious options include spas and exquisitely furnished rooms, while simpler options still boast convenient access to the sand. Inland, a few resorts make use of ampler space, with pleasant grounds and huge pools.
