“great place for a destination wedding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2011

Goa : the lalit : "amazing place for destination wedding "
date : 5-6-7 july 2010
my friend had booked this hotel for his wedding and we were provided with a stay out there at the hotel for 3 days as all his wedding funtions were suppose to be taking place out there .
we had a airport pick up by the hotel bus .
the hotel is almost at the border of goa and karnataka and the journey from the airport to the hotel took us almost 2 hours ,which i thought was a little hectic.as the roads were bad towards the end.
we had an nice and warm welcome at the hotel by the hotel staff with a garland of flowers and cold water.
we had to wait for a bit till we got our rooms as we had reached out there early in the morning. and also there was another wedding the day before so the people had not checked out of their rooms.and by 11 am we got the rooms
the hotel is huge it is spread over 70 acres making it one of the largest hotels in south goa.
getting from reception to the room took us almost 12 mins appx but the walk was a worth .we saw the rooms they were huge the rooms were almost 50 sq mts or 500 sq ft.
the room had a huge balcony and a very nice bathroom.the beds were amazing .they had two single beds but since we were a couple we had to join them so when someone is checking in they can make a request from before to the hotel for a king or queen size beds.the room has a nice plasma tv and a nice sofa seating to sit and makes u feel very warm and relaxed in the room .in india you normally dont tend to find such great size rooms as this was a normal room and not a suite .
the hotel has nice funtion halls and a nice area for breakfast. the food was nice.
the hotel has a very nice and huge swimming pool.
i would suggest this hotel to all my friends and family members if they want to have a destination wedding or even for a normal stay.
and i was very glad to venture out a stay at such a nice property .

Found a number of disappointing features about this hotel. First, there were a number of amenities closed due to monsoon. I get closing the outdoor stuff, but closing all but one restaurant? Second, the food quality was uninspired and buffet choices were limited, at least by way of comparing to other 5 star hotels. Third, Some maintenance items were disappointing. The mold in the underhangs on the balcony was not good. Fourth, internet service was difficult to access, required service (and 30+ minutes) to get online, and was absurdly expensive. Fifth, the credit card system had problems, and I was left sitting for over 20 minutes. Finally, I should have looked at a map... this is one of the most remote resorts... almost as far south in Goa as you can get, and about 90 minutes to the airport and most of the beaches you'll want to see (my fault, but worth noting)

On the good side, rooms were spacious, staff was friendly, and the concierge was helpful arranging a sightseeing day for me. Also, the pool area looked very nice.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for sparing time and posting your review of our hotel on Trip Advisor.

We operate 3 restaurants to suit the requirements of all guests. The Canacona Restaurant is 24hours all day dining, the Sea bq is open for lunch and dinner and is a specialty steak & seafood grill and Sirocco is open for cocktails and dinner and is a Mediterranean restaurant. It seems that our team did not completely make you aware of all the restaurants available and for this lapse I apologize.

Pursuant to your feedback, we have had a detailed meeting with the concerned departments, the management of the hotel has taken serious cognizance of your points and are extremely regretful about it. I wish to assure you that we are taking corrective steps to ensure that these incidents may be avoided.

I am pleased to note that you enjoyed your room and our friendly/helpful staff at the hotel.

Your feedback is valuable to us and helps us in our endeavor of constant improvement. Your patronage to our group is of great value, and we look forward to being able to welcome you back to InterContinental The Lalit Goa Resort and experience the difference.

Warm regards,
Paloma Quadros

Extremely well appointed rooms, nice swimming pool though the max. depth is only 5 feet. Good food and a VERYYYYY long private beach - about 1km.
It is a good getaway but if you want to party I would recommend putting up somewhere in North Goa.
A place ideally for family holidays. You can only enjoy the hotel and a couple of nice beaches at some distance from the hotel.

The service is bad but i shall forgive them as it is a well spread hotel.

The food which is the most important for a holiday to be a hit was not edible..
It was not stale food but FOOD DID NOT LOOK WHAT IT WAS NAMED AND DEFINITELY NEVER TASTED IT'S NAME.
The cooks i am sure are picked from some alley or gully but not from bombay as the bombay road food is far better than this food .

I think these people should out source their food or start asking the guest to fend for themselves....keep this hotel as a bed and breakfast only hotel as the breakfast was always ok specially the south indian breakfast was the only saviour in this MOST SECLUDED hotel

Room Tip: All rooms are huge and good

Stayed at The Lalit from 23rd to 25th June 2011. It is a very beautiful property with it's own private beach.

The rooms are huge so are the bathrooms. With 40" flat panel TV. The rooms have a breathtaking view.

One downside is it's distance from the airport, about 1.5 hrs drive. The second strange things is there is no free WIFI! There is a charge of Rs 250 per hour. When worldwide even moderate hotels provide free internet there is no logic for The Lalit to charge.

Otherwise would recommend the hotel.

Room Tip: Opt for a seaview room

Date: 15-May 2011 - 18- May 2011
It was a business function and a meeting was held for selecting the best resort and

we suggested Goa's #1 resort , Intercontinental Hotel resort which proved to be one

of our best decision.

It was a awesome experience . Among the luxury hotels, we knew that

intercontinental hotel is one of the best and it proved . We were in the hotel at

around 4 PM in the evening oon 15th may 2011. We were very impressed by the warm

welcome by the hotel staffs. Internet was included in our package and internet was

very nice.
Our first impression of the room was awesome , with cashewnuts and a

gini wine (special goan wine) . There is also access to the backyard from our room

and a very nice place for honeymoon. You can have drinks in the backyard and it can

be accessed from the backdoor of your room. After having a little nap at room , we

had a good time in the swimming pool.
The swimming pool was very nice and the water was warm , so you ll feel

comfortable and there was a bar in the swimming pool. There is also a shop in the

hotel , where you can buy some traditional items available in goa.

The next day, the meeting was held in the conference hall and it

was a perfect place for conference. After the meeting, we had a party near the

swimming pool which is the best place to have party.
In the evening, we went to the seashore and it was a bit disappointing

because of the humidity and the water was not blue as we expected . But still , the

place was awesome and we were inside the waters in minutes. The beach was well

equipped with security guards , shower with clean water, a toilet, umbrellas, bed .

There was also bike available for rent and it was very cheap, just for 100 Rs. The

next day , we went in bike for nearby beaches and you can buy some beach dress,

musical items. Remember that there is bargaining, and you ve to bargain for getting

the best price. The food is the not the best to be honest , but at the same time,

not the worst .
Sauna , Golf and tennis is also availabe. The sauna was awesome and we had a steam

bath .

So concluding, I would rate the hotel room , internet, swimming pool,

golf, sauna is awesome . The beach and the food is above average . It is a place for

honeymoon and I promise that anyone will enjoy a lot.
