“If you go Goa, go Hyatt”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Spent a lovely weekend at the resort! Traveled with a six year old so the Hyatt was a perfect choice. The kids camp was great, lots of activities, nature walks. Really gave us time to enjoy our stay! The hotel is located on the bay of the Arabian Sea. View was spectacular! The pool is one of the largest I have seen, clean and kid friendly. The grounds were immaculate and we enjoyed lovely moonlit strolls along the many paths. Our suite was the perfect size complete with a jacuzzi on the patio. The hotel food was delish, and the charming hotel bar was perfect for a nightcap. Staff was attentive and extremely polite. Downside for partygoers, a 40-45 min drive to the local huts and bars on the more popular beaches like Baga. All in all a fab hotel and will definitely return!

Beautiful hotel and impeccable service. Well designed with good sized rooms and capped off by stunning grounds. The architecture is Indo-Portuguese, harking to the 17th century, with sloping roofs, wide hallways and individually tiled floors that sparkle. The windows all feature capiz shell pieces, just like in the old days. The hotel is situated on a secluded stretch of beach. lovely tranquil environment with luxurious, comfortable room. good bar and restaurants, in particular the "verandah", a grill serving fresh market fish and meat - a fairly limited menu, but we tried most things and they were all delicious, beautifully presented. staff are very helpful and attentive - 5 star service! The Grand Hyatt Goa features seven restaurants and lounges, some of them named after the rooms of the palace they are meant to resemble, giving the guests ample choice for their dining preferences. For a pre-dinner drink, head to the Pool Bar and Grill which is an open-air venue beside the free-formed pool.The Bambolim bay is at your doorstep and with hotel security and lifeguards around, it is the best way to enjoy your time in Goa.The hotel is grand but it is the staff who make the biggest impression. Everyone smiles so much more here, and is willing to talk about his or her life in detail.

Room Tip: Ask for bay view rooms in the higher floors.

The name Grand Hyatt starts unfolding itself the moment you enter the lobby of the hotel. The staff sees to it personally to make your stay as comfortable as best it can be. You are spoilt for choices and it sets a benchmark in hospitality and you would always start comparing and evaluate other hotels with Grands yardstick!

Thanks Grand for truely lifetime experience!

Amazing property with king size pool. Pool was the place where we spent most of our time, just relaxing next to water and enjoying our drinks. Staff was very courteous and played key role in making our stay memorable.

Food quality was heavenly. We relished each and every dish specially pizza and sandwich.

Breakfast was lavish with infinite varieties.



Check-in and check-out was bit messy but who cares. Overall amazing experience.

I stayed in Hyatt from 15th to 18th of January, 2013. Wonderful property, great rooms,excellant pool, clean beach and out of the world service. Check-in was very smooth and room was neat and clean with fruit and cookies.The best part is staff is very motivated, they are always willing to go extra mile. always smiling. Even the gardener will smile at you. I have not seen such a beahaviour any where across the globe. Shaman Spa is simply the best. Have stayed in Taj Holiday, Leela and Zuri in Goa and I can say this is "the best." The only suggestion is for the restaurant-Chulha. Food is excellant and pricing is also good but menu is restricted and vegetarian don't have much choice. But this is just a small issue.

Room Tip: dont taje taxi from inside the hotel. It is costly. You can simply walk outside and you will get ple...

if you are looking for a great (if expensive) resort in North Goa, I would recommend the Grand Hyatt property. it is also a good venue for conventions.

It is about a 40 min drive from the airport - which is good for Goa standards.The property is large but well laid out. The rooms are spacious and well-equipped. The room i stayed in had a road-side view :-( but there are rooms which have a sea view - go for those!

There is a semi-private beach which is clean - good for an early morning jog or a leisurely walk. The hotel also has a great gym with all modern equipment. i did not try the pool but it looked good.

The food was OK - I am not a big fan of 5-star cuisine. BF spread could have been better with more variety. Did not try room service.

I had a problem with my room wi-fi and finally had to get a wired connection.

This is a hotel good for both business and pleasure travelers.

Room Tip: Sea-facing for sure!
