Grand Hyatt , Goa India, Goa
The Grand Hyatt is a large and well-equipped five star hotel in Goa, meeting all the international hotel standards you’d expect from an establishment of its size and reputation. What it lacks in character, it makes up for with extensive facilities, beautiful manicured grounds, and tasteful furnishings.
The hotel sits on Bambolim Bay in the centre of Goa on 28 acres of lush tropical gardens. Panaji, Goa’s capital city is just a few kilometres away, and Mapusa can be reached in just over half an hour. Heritage homes from the nineteenth century, museums, crumbling Portuguese forts, temples, and beautiful churches are all close by, particularly in UNESCO World Heritage listed Old Goa. At the hotel, you can book a treatment at the Shamana Spa, swim in the outdoor or indoor pools, or take the kids to the bay for a water sporting adventure.
There are 312 rooms and suites at the Grand Hyatt, and they are all modern, well equipped, and elegantly furnished. The entry-level standard rooms are spacious enough at 50 square metres, but an upgrade to a View Room is highly recommended to take advantage of beautiful Bambolim Bay from the private balcony.
The Grand Hyatt Goa is an international standard five star hotel, but it’s neither a characterful nor authentic Indian experience. If you’re looking for a taste of Indian life, go somewhere else. Come here for predictable modern comforts and superior facilities for a chance to relax and reflect on a busy Inida tour.
Deluxe - This is our first really 'upmarket' category. It might be a beautiful tiny hotel with very limited facilities or a 5* resort hotel with all the trimmings; but any hotel in this category will be a well-run establishment with very comfortable rooms, a strong service ethos and excellent food.
