With a bit of time spare before a full day of meetings, I take a gander around the grounds of Park Hyatt Goa. Although I wasn’t too keen on the room, the grounds itself is quite exceptional. Especially for this part of the world, an unexpected hidden treasure.
The hotel entrance as expected is highly guarded. Once you pass security, you come to this wonderful looking complex.
Hotel staff all courteous.
I must add that the photos were only able to be captured due to a temporary break in the rainfall.
View of the pool with the Arabian Sea in the background.
View of the hotel from the garden.
Reached the sea. As you can see it was quite windy.
After this I head off to work for the day. Work finishes and I arrive back at the hotel with the rain still falling and the light beginning to fade.
My colleagues and I head off to a restaurant 15 minutes away. The name of the place is called Martin’s Corner.
Had to try the light spiced Goan Crab. This was delicious. To go with this, we ordered a coconut chicken and a spinach dish. Also delicious.
A lovely restaurant, named after the original owner now passed down to his children.
After dinner, it’s back to the hotel for a bath and shower in one.
Never seen this concept before. Wasn’t sure if this was a good idea or a bad one. Having a bath in this wasn’t very comfortable. This brings my stay in Goa to an end and the next day will see me fly to Bangalore for the final stage of this trip report.
To be continued.
