Californian going to Vapi for business - need recommendation

I will be traveling to Vapi in a few months for business. I will be bringing my wife along too.

Are there any upscale Western-style resorts or hotels in the Daman area? Or within a reasonable distance of Vapi? I want to stay in a nice clean place that will keep my wife comfortable and entertained while I am at work each day.

Any other recommendations on things to do, places to eat, how to get around, etc. I have never been to India, so I don't really know what to expect. Advice from other Americans that have been to the area would be appreciated. Thanks.

There are resorts in Daman though not extremely upmarket. Daman is a small town, its major attraction being the beach. How long are you planning to be there? If its a short trip, say 2-3 days, your wife may be able to keep herself busy, more than that will be a challenge since the Vapi-Daman-Diu-Silvassa area is basically an industrail belt.

Have a look at the foll link for hotels in Daman:

Hope this helps.

Thank you very much for the information! We will only be there for about 3 days.

Any safety concerns about my wife exploring the area by herself while I am at work?
