What we love
- The luxurious and calm vibe, yet in a location close to the sites of the historical capital, Panjim - an ideal opportunity to combine with a South Goa hotel for a twin-centre holiday.
Good to know
- Due to the conference centre next door, the hotel is in high demand so early booking is recommended.
An ideal base to enjoy Panjim
This well-presented hotel is part of the Taj group and offers the ideal base to enjoy the delights of Panjim, a vibrant city with plenty to do. The hotel was designed by world-renowned architect, Charles Correa, and was created like a Portuguese hamlet with Mediterranean influences. You'll find murals, chequered floors, balcaos and tiled rooves throughout the hotel, taking you on a Portuguese-Goan journey. The rooms are designed with care and with the guest in mind, each room has a beautiful view with many looking out to the Arabian Sea. The gardens stretch the length of the long sandy cove that they overlook, perfect for walking through and soaking up the relaxed Goan atmosphere. The professional, yet relaxed atmosphere welcomes all who stay, and you will instantly feel at home, with warmth at the heart of the hotel’s customer service.
The hotel boasts three wonderful restaurants (one of which is a poolside café), offering a range of cuisines. The hotel also hosts a seasonal barbecue, offering delicious evening meals by the beach, and this beautiful garden setting is the perfect place for a romantic evening meal. The on-site spa offers guests the chance to relax and rejuvenate with the many treatments on offer, or you can choose to enjoy the Jacuzzi and sauna.
Fill your days at Cidade de Goa by unwinding at one of the two pools, the hotel is also equipped with a kid’s pool, making it a great family hotel, with a kid’s club and play park available for the younger guests too. The hotel has direct access to Vainguinim Beach, a small but beautiful beach fringed by palm trees, perfect for an afternoon relaxing in peace and quiet.
Official local hotel rating: 5 star
