Goa from Mumbai

A crowd of us are going to Mumbai on business in October. We're there for the weekend and don't fancy doing Mumbai sightseeing again. How easy is it to get flights to Goa? How much do they cost and how far ahead do you have to book? Are there luxury hotels near the airport at Goa?

Alternatively, is there anywhere nice to stay within a reasonable distance outside of Mumbai?

Any advice is much appreciated.

Cheers, Pete

There doesn't seem to be any Friday and Sunday evening flights. Is this correct?

Which airlines have you checked ? If you go to a site like makemytrip.com or cleartrip.com, you can see options for all available flights with pricing. If you want cheap prices, check the low cost airlines like Air Deccan, Indigo, JetLite, etc.

Just looked up Friday evening and Sunday evening flights on cleartrip, and there are plenty of options. You can book them on the web or through any travel agent in Mumbai after you reach there.

Back to my favourite hotel in Goa. The luxury hotel closest to Dabolim airport is the Park Hyatt. According to me, it is Goa's best hotel. About a 15 minute car ride
