Reviewed May 5, 2013

My partner and I have just returned from a weeks holiday in Goa, where we stayed 7 nights at the Grand Hyatt Goa.

From the palatial buildings, to the huge gardens and pool area, to the well appointed rooms there was nothing at this property that we could find fault.

On the first 4 nights of our stay the property was running at over 90% occupancy yet due to an Indian wedding and a work conference, we still felt like we were the only people staying at the property, and during the days there were at most 10 people around the pool, which was fantastic giving us the time to totally relax.

We were booked into a Bay View King room, which was extensive with outdoor seating area, and the bathroom with separate bath and shower cubicle with a 'Rain Shower'

When booking our stay, we opted for the Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner option which even though we could only use the restaurants and not for around the pool dining we found the food to be varied and plentiful. Breakfast could only be taken in the dining room (which is buffet style); the options for lunch were either the dining room buffet style or Chulha (which is their Indian Restaurant) and for dinner again, this could be either the dining room, Chulha or The Verandah, it was great to have the variety to choose from, even though we ate mainly at Chulha as they made us different meals on every visit.

The staff are extremely tentative, friendly, welcoming and more than happy to do anything for you, even the room attendance were friendly and happy to be of service.

The beach is large and lovely to walk on during the day or afternoon stroll, I would probably not recommend swimming, even though you will see the locals doing so, but the beach is safe with hotel security, but nothing to do except for strolling. There are no local shops or night stands to walk to if you want this then you will need to take a car out to the different areas, we did use the hotel vehicles for a few days to go exploring Old Goa, Panjim etc.

The hotel facilities are grand, from the outdoor pool, to the gardens, indoor steam and spa area with 'Roman Style' indoor Jacuzzi to the largest indoor lap pool it was wonderful. The hotel itself is not yet 2 years old, but they are already doing small touch ups to ensure that the property stays in 'tip top' condition which is great to see. .

We had the opportunity to meet the GM, who was extremely friendly and took the time out to speak to us and he works closely with his staff which is great to see.

On our day trips we did go and see some of the other hotels which we were considering like the Marriott Hotel and the Vivanta by Taj, Fort Aquada and Holiday Village and we were so happy that we did not chose any of these as we would have been extremely disappointed, although these properties have places to walk to outside of the main gate, we were still extremely happy that we chose the Grand Hyatt and we are hoping to return to for another holiday soon.

Thanks to all the staff and management for making our stay memorable, and looking forward to returning soon.

This place is unbelievable. It's just about 2 years old, built in the style of a Portugese palace. It's spread laterally across a hillside, going down towards the sea.

Everything about this place speaks of Luxury. From the rooms to the restaurants to the grounds. Right from the decor to the appointment of the swimming pools and restaurants to the food to the rooms, everything is impeccable, everything is perfect!

The location is just outside of Panji, enough to escape the bustle, but still a convenient fifteen minutes away. The airport too is about 45 minutes away.

Whether you're with kids, or with your spouse, or on a business trip - this hotel has a lot to offer. Chill out with the kids in the swimming pools; or have a romantic massage in the spa; or sip a wine at dusk - plenty of things to do.

Go for it, you wont go wrong!

Dear Tanmay_Joshi,

Greetings from Grand Hyatt and beautiful Goa!

Thank you for your brilliant post on TripAdvisor. I am overjoyed by your generous and inspiring comments and very glad that you found our hotel, its facilities and services to be very outstanding. As you have rightly mentioned; our location is certainly very tranquil and attractive which is liked by most of our guests, yet not too far from the airport and main areas such as Panjim, Mapusa, Old Goa and Calangute.

Your commendation is our greatest compliment and we hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back soon.

We were two couples and two kids stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. I have never come across this level of hospitality or hotel facilities. There is everything itself in the hotel like Jacuzzi, steam, sauna, spa , indoor and outdoor pool, camp hyatt for kids and many more. One must taste food at one of its restaurant "Chulha". The food was awesome. As the hotel is on the bay and not on the beach, this can only be termed as little disadvantage for beach lovers

Dear Bikas_banura,

Greetings from Grand Hyatt and beautiful Goa!

Thank you for your brief review on TripAdvisor. I am delighted to know you and your family had an amazing stay with us. I am happy that you enjoyed the services and facilities including many of our amenities on offer and particularly had a great dining experience at Chulha.
It is our continuous effort to create memorable experiences and deliver a Hyatt touch to all our guests.

As you are aware Grand Hyatt Goa is situated by the calm waters of Bambolim bay. This hotel being only 50 metres away from the bay makes it an ideal place to unwind and relax and the soothing sound of the waves makes it very unique. You can enjoy fresh air 24/7, morning jogs and a swim in addition to spectacular sunsets from your room which is liked and appreciated by most of our guests.

Once again, thank you for your post and we look forward to your next family vacation.

Very nice property with low rise cottages spread over a large area. Very tastefully built & the care shows in details within the room as well. The beach is not great & looks more like a backwaters beach than a full beach!

Dear Devnewdelhi,

Greetings from Grand Hyatt and beautiful Goa!

Thank you for your quick post on TripAdvisor. It is a great pleasure to know you liked the decor of the hotel and hope you had a wonderful stay with us.

Grand Hyatt Goa is nestled by the calm waters of Bambolim bay which makes it an ideal place to unwind and relax. This being a bay, the coastal stretch is not as vast as the beach, yet the Bambolim bay is ideal for morning jogs, a swim and one can capture amazing views of the magical sunsets from the room.

Thank you once again and we look forward to your next visit.

Dear Amitietk,

Greetings from Grand Hyatt and beautiful Goa!

Thank you for your review to the advised trippers. It’s a great delight to know you liked our rooms, the food and beverage offerings and enjoyed the pool. I am sure it was a great pleasure for you to come across well known movie stars.

Nevertheless, I regret to know that your kids did not benefit much from Camp Hyatt while your stay in December. Considering our guests feedback, Camp Hyatt has introduced series of activities for kids aged from 03-12 years which is treasured by most of the kid’s. We also have outdoor activities for groups, families and individuals to indulge in, these activities includes beach volley ball, archery, Table tennis, aqua aerobics and many more.

Regarding transport services, these are provided by an outsourced company and the rates are based on the local market. However, the hotel ensures that the transport provider comply with Hyatt standards and ensure the safety of our guests at all times.

Thank you once more and we look forward to see you for your next vacation.

I stayed here with my family and the place was really comfortable. It provided the needed options for unwinding keeping everyone's needs in view. While the SPA was amazing the stretch of the beach attached to the Property attracts you with an absolute great view and privacy without the hustle bustle of a regular Goan beach. The multiple options to indulge in global as well as local cuisines leave you leave you satisfied the bar men take extra efforts to customise the fresh fruit martinis to your taste.

The property has a sprawling SPA and I could spent almost a full day there getting a Balinese Massage and a foot SPA. The in-house jacuzzi, sauna and the steam want you to come back for more.

The Hotel staff is amazingly hospitable and accommodate your request for additional beddings to lat check it with equal ease.

Te check-in and check-out processes are easy and fast. Overall the experience was beautiful and the spacious rooms, the great pool as well as the winding paths across the property encourage me to get back to the property...

Room Tip: Look forward to a great experience!
