Defining our hotel collection

Blog > Defining our hotel collection

When it comes to choosing your perfect holiday hotel in Goa, it may help to know how we group our diverse range of properties in our collection.

Given the great range of choice amongst our entire accommodation collection, it is understandably a difficult task when it comes to narrowing down and selecting your perfect hotel. We think it is hugely important that we have a great variety of hotels for you to consider, yet at the same time, we also want to make sure that no matter which one you choose to book, you'll still enjoy an unrivalled holiday experience. 

All our hotels have been hand-picked by our in-house experts, with diverse offerings found throughout our programme, all suited to a number of different budgets and holiday types. In addition to this, we're delighted to be able to offer several hotels from our collection that are exclusive to us.


How do our hotel classifications work?


India is a developing country with hotel and service level gradings that are difficult to compare to European destinations and standards. Despite this, the top end of the hotel market in India and Goa is world class. Taking both of these considerations into account, we have decided to create our very own hotel grading system. We use a lotus flower symbol to demonstrate a full grade, while half a flower demonstrates a midway grade. You can find these grading symbols used in both our brochure and across our website.
