Goa, in western India, is a beach resort with coastlines stretching along the Arabian Sea. There are a number of luxury hotels and resorts along the beach and we have picked the best 3 for your next trip to this warm and vibrant area of India.
Park Hyatt Goa redefines luxury in Goa, set adjacent to the pristine Arossim Beach (pictured above), within 45 acres of landscaped gardens with glimmering waterways and lagoons; the five star deluxe beach resort close to the Goa airport showcases charming Indo-Portuguese architecture throughout the sprawling resort. Each of the 249 guestrooms and suites combine comfort & elegance with a distinctive regional character. Each of the rooms & suites offer a private balcony with picturesque views, award-winning restaurants curate the most splendid dining experiences, Sereno Spa is a wellness destination in itself alongwith the sprawling fitness centre and the popular kids destination Camp Hyatt makes it a perfect holiday destination for family and solo travellers alike.
For destination weddings and business events, Park Hyatt Goa offers an array of well-designed event spaces across 60000 sq ft comprising of charming indoor and outdoor venues. They are soon launching a brand new event space spread across 20000 square feet with a dedicated ballroom, reception and dining areas in addition to the existing venues.
The W Goa is nestled on the hillside above Vagator Beach. It has an Ibiza-style soundtrack that seems to permeate the buildings, and the facilities are spread across extensive grounds full of greenery and flowers.
The hotel has direct beach access, two stylish restaurants, the Woo Bar and a number of swimming pools including a “Rock Pool” lagoon carved out of the hillside and with sea views. Rooms are large with generous bathrooms, sitting areas and either a balcony or garden patio.
The Leela Goa is an opulent riverside hotel with a colonial style, spread across freshwater lagoons full of greenery and flowers. It spa, its own golf course and direct access to the beach.
We particularly like the fresh flower necklace that you are given as you arrive. Rooms are spread around the three lagoons, and bathrooms are luxurious. There are also restaurants offering excellent cuisine and the Yali Lounge and Aqua for a drink.
Each of these resorts are havens away from the chaos of much of Goa and offer incredible value for this level of luxury hotel.
