|Goa Hotel Reviews
Few weeks’ back our director Manish Pratik travelled to Goa and here are his reviews on various hotels:
Planet Hollywood (http://planethollywoodgoa.com/)
A brand new hotel (4+ star) not too far from the airport. It has opened recently and has a modern, funky feel, which may be liked by youngsters, families with kids, inbound incentive groups. Rooms are well equipped with plenty of Hollywood kind of theme in and around the resort. Could be a good one for Corporates especially young crowd.
Holiday Inn Resort Goa (http://www.holidayinngoa.com/)
Welcome sight to see this hotel go through complete renovation specially lobby and public areas. The product is certainly more than a normal Holiday inn is expected to offer. It can be fit into any market, especially group, conferences segment.
The Leela Goa (http://www.theleela.com/locations/goa)
Most certainly a high-class top of the line resort maintained very well. It remains perhaps the best in Goa. Be particular about selecting right category of room here depending upon client’s requirement as they have many variants. Since it is secluded may not be great for the younger people looking for partying around.
Kenilworth Goa (http://www.kenilworthhotels.com/goa/)
It remains one of the good 4 star option in South Goa. Public areas including entrance, lobby have been renovated. Rooms by and large remain same nothing special but usable.
Nanu Resorts (http://www.nanuhotels.in/)
Perhaps the best 3 star hotel in South Goa. Despite of being one of the oldest they have maintained basic standard right. Being a very old hotel, room size is little small but usable. Good for families and friends traveling together.
Royal Orchid, Majorda, Ramada and Zuri are not in good shape. You may get competitive rates because of their need for business but clients will certainly not be thrilled with the choice of hotel.
Grand Hyatt Goa (http://www.goa.grand.hyatt.com/en/hotel/home.html)
One of the most luxurious product available in Goa. Best option for large conferences and conventions. Being a large hotel and away from beach it is not so good for FITs. Another flip side is quality of crowd because of hotel picking up large domestic conferences could make it not so great experience at times.
Casa de Goa (http://www.casadegoa.com/)
It remains one of the charming, boutique hotels of Goa not too far from the beach. They have two sections one with standard rooms and across the road one with Vilas, which are fantastic for long stays, families who want something different from a normal hotel. Very well maintained rather upgraded over the years. An authentic Portuguese style of architecture, which goes well with the surroundings.
Grand Mercure Goa (http://www.mercure.com/gb/hotel-8861-grand-mercure-goa-shrem-resort/index.shtml)
A relatively new hotel with good size inventory and well equipped conference facilities. Could be good option for both Groups and FITs in north Goa.
The Park, Goa (http://www.theparkhotels.com/goa/goa.html)
Although this hotel is there for some time but I did not visit it earlier. A unique, modern, boutique kind of hotel with limited inventory but an unbeatable location, which is almost on the beach. But be careful about the rooms, which are very modern looking with bathrooms almost in the room may not be appreciated by everyone. With the land being a longish one most of the rooms do not have sea or, beach view.
360 Beach Retreat (www.360beachretreat.com)
Another interesting modern small hotel very close to the beach. They have a nice beach and sack in front. Rooms are small but very well equipped.
