Our Journey

Bougainvilla Hermitage Pvt. Ltd. was incorporated in the year 2007, the brainchild of Michael & Tomoko Lobo. Two passionate people, who left their fast city life around 25 years ago, to make a home in Goa.

They began a publishing house Findoll Communications & Publications, and were the first to introduce informative village maps of Goa to tourists and others in need. They also published Goa’s first yellow pages, the property guide- Homes & Estates, an Event & Tourist magazine – Findall Goa etc.

The success of the publishing house was followed by a a Property consultancy firm, Homes & Estates Consultancy. That over two decades has been involved in buying, selling & renting of properties across Goa.

Bougainvilla-Hermitage Retirement Village started with a simple concept: where would we live when we retire?
Although Michael & Tomoko loved Goa very much, there was no high standard retirement places in Goa, or even in India back in those days. So they created a checklist of what was needed for an ideal retired life, and that was how the Bougainvilla Hermitage dream was born.

Bougainvilla-Hermitage now consists of 60 apartments, spread over the green expanse of the quaint village of Nachinola. It is eco-friendly and equipped with every modern amenity like 24 hours 100% power back-up, a sewage treatment plant, potable drinking water etc.

Bougainvilla Hermitage is a member of the Confederation of Indian Industries (CII), Goa Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI), Indian Green Building Association (IGBC) and British Business Group (BBG).
