Our recent trip to Goa took us to this beautiful resort in South Goa. We have been to Goa on multiple occasions and have stayed at various resorts, right from North Goa to South Goa. Park Hyatt would be right at the top of our list, as this resort checked all our requirements.
The plan was to celebrate our daughters 3rd birthday at Goa in the month of May. People usually do not prefer this destination during summers as the conception is that Goa is too hot during summers. To be honest, if you love sun and sand, I do not see any issue in visiting this beautiful place during summers. If you can avoid the harsh sun from noon to 4PM, you should not be having any issues with the heat. Well thats my take 🙂 – I am someone who can spend the entire day by the beach, basking in the sun and sipping couple of beers
We drove down from Bangalore. Took the usual plan – started at around 5AM and reached the resort by around 3PM. Read more about the drive.
Checkin was a breeze and we were greeted with a welcome drink – somehow missed the traditional Goan reception i.e. no music. The formalities were completed very quickly and we were upgraded to their lagoon view rooms with an open bath. Always a great way to start the stay !!
The lagoon view room was excellent and had a King bed with an open air bathroom. The room was very clean and well laid out. The view from the room was just perfect and the little one enjoyed her time at the sit-out.
The lagoon view from the room:
The highlight of our room, no doubt would be the view that we had from the room. The sit out area overlooked the lagoons and was a treat to the eyes.
The resort is spread over 45 acres of well maintained lawns, waterways and lagoons. The resort exhibits the charming Indo-Portuguese style room and suites and is an ideal setting for a relaxing family vacation.
The uniqueness of the resort is that, it has plenty of water bodies. These water bodies add to the beauty of the landscape, but also add the bring in many mosquitoes and insects. The resort does a great job in maintaining these water bodies, but it is advisable that you keep your sliders closed. Also carry a good insect repellent to keep these bugs at bay.
Restaurants in the hotel premise:
The resort hosts some of the best restaurants in Goa. There are various dining options available for customers. We were able to try out most of the options and were not disappointed by any.
Palms: Our favorite has to be the Palms for 2 reasons. One, the sea food was great and second, the views from this restaurant are simply amazing.
Da Luigi: This restaurant serves some of the best Italian dishes in Town. We simply loved the grilled prawns with Fennel seeds and their Salad. Highly recommend it.
Masala: We had lunch at this restaurant during the 2nd day of our stay. The restaurant serves some of the authentic India cuisines – mainly from the Northwest Frontier, Punjab and the neighboring states.
And last but not the least, one of our favorites Casa Sarita. This restaurant is know as one of the best restaurants in Goa to try out Goan cuisine. We simply loved the Goan Fish curry along with the freshly baked Goan breads.

The Pool Area:
The resort has one of the best swimming pools that one can find in this part of the world. According to the resort, the pool is one of the largest free form swimming pools in India.
Camp Hyatt Goa
Travelling with a toddler can be fun and challenging at the same time. Keeping a kid engaged can sometimes become of the most challenging aspect for a parent. This is where the camp Hyatt helps a parent. We found the materials and the environment very enriching for the kids.
If you are looking for an ideal beach vacation, this resort has to be right up there. The resort is located just beside the pristine white sand Arossim beach in Cansaulim. The beach is devoid of commercialization and usually has only the guests from the resorts that lines up this stretch. The white sand beach is very clean and is safe with lifeguards on duty for most of the day.
Other facilities available in the resort:
The resort has a fully functional fitness center and Serona Spa. We used both the facilities during our stay and were fully satisfied with the service. Would highly recommend trying some of the signature therapies at Serona Spa.
Would we visit this place again. Well the answer is a big YES. This has to be one of the best stays that we have had in the recent past. The service was exemplary and every aspect of our stay was taken care of. A simple example of their service – we ran out of a baby product and to our surprise this is what we saw when we returned to our room. Keep up the good work Hyatt !!
