I've been living and working in India for 2.5 years. In this time I've travelled extensively for both work and pleasure and I've come to expect the highest levels of service and experience from Indian establishments. I'm pleased to report that my recent stay at the Grand Hyatt Bambolim, Goa, lived up to those expectations in the majority of areas and exceeded my expectations in others. The resort staff take this resort from good to great. As you'd expect at a Hyatt, they are courteous and attentive without being intrusive but what sets them apart is their ability to anticipate what you might need next...From the Club staff to the F&B team, to the function staff, the service levels were great. Nothing was not possible!
I stayed in the Club guest house which is a little removed from the main reception and provides good insurance against late night partying in the bar(s) and restaurants. The rooms are spacious, well appointed for either business or pleasure and with bathrooms which are very well fitted out with baths, showers, separate loo; but the thing which makes a difference is they got the lighting right - the bathrooms are bright! they've managed to get the lighting, power points and audio right which is great!!
The amenities are great - good pool area with plenty of both shaded and sunny spots to occupy depending on your requirement; a good selection of bars, dining facilities (traditional indian to full mediterranean to lite snacks); and a great spa where the treatments are first class.
Some tips for staying: 1) The resort appears to be a popular spot for top end conferences and weddings so, if you're not in the mood to party then ask for a room away from the potential noise; 2) The resort is on the Bay not the Ocean so you'll need to travel if you want a Goa Ocean Beach experience. There are beach activities - volley ball, archery, yoga etc but the beach is not what some of us would expect; 3) the resort is quite large, so I found it good for both group partying and individual peace and quiet.
