Couple of years back I secretly promised to Santa, that if he grants me a nice, long, relaxing holiday on a beach….. I will be nice to my husband till next Christmas!!! Santa liked my earnest wish, and promptly gave me a holiday in GO GO GOAAAAAA……
Almost 730 days after our marriage we went to Goa for a much needed vacation. A breather, little space from constant time bound routine and daily struggle over performance. This vacation was very special for me on two terms: it was our first official outing post getting ‘Hooked’, and secondly, it was at ‘TAJ‘
TAJ Vivanta at Panaji Goa, welcomes you with the broadest of smiles and warmest of delights once you pop out of your air capsule at the Airport. The concierge service helps you to relax and enthralls you to the journey of relaxation.
The moment you land in reception lobby, Vivanta’s warmth take you by its grace and grandeur. Courteous staff, amazingly well planned layout of interiors along with the local insignia feel to it, this property is centrally located in terms of famous tourist destinations. While the formalities take its course at reception, you can have a cozier route to relax by consuming the beauty and fresh welcome drink at your service.
You have rooms according to your pocket and availability, we have had an advance booking hence checked in our room to bask in the glory of luxury combined with easy on eyes interiors.
Freshly made bed, soft linen, cozy clean bathroom with softest of towels/bathrobes, toiletries without harmful chemicals, room with a view, 24*7 in room dining & house keeping support, mini bar at room, what else can you ask for….
I loved the see through glass wall in bathroom and missed the funny animated chit chat with my husband keeping that invisible wall in between 😎
Relaxation lounges & treatment suits gives best soothing treatment you can ever imagine. Relaxing music in the background and aromatic oil smells infused in air takes your stress away.
When in Goa, do it Goan way…hence, we hit bar – TEASE!! Oh!!! You can just look at variety and get carried away. The best in the City…. Name your poison and they have array to offer… keeping in check the inflow for sure 😉
Fine dining at it’s best, Vivanta has loads to offer when comes to scrumptious food. They have three restaurants, Latitude, Tamari, Caramel along a bar Tease. I preferred Tamari, as not daily we get the chance to try best Japanese, Thai & Chinese cuisine. Food was laid out in platter, pick up menu, sizzle counter, sushi picks.
After the amazing evening, for a little ‘we’ time, rooftop pool side delivers what you ask for…. tranquil, breezy, pure essence of Goan air… moderate illumination by lights, greenery and dark blue skies.. any one would fall in love with life here.
After an amazing first day at Vivanta, we had a busy site seeing day… again thanks for the amazing tour services by the hotel. You get a four wheeler at your disposal, along with local map and some friendly tips for the driver.
Cubana dinner at the rooftop, oh yes… nothing can get more romantic than this. Candle light dinner for you two, on the rooftop with the best on plate and much more to discover along the conversation’s way…
I loved my 4 day stay at Vivanta by Taj Goa, hope my little brittle write up spruce up your feelings to enjoy it yourself. As truly mentioned it’s a life time experience…. who doesn’t want to get pampered? And when pampering comes in special package… I am all game for that.
