Business meets pleasure at the modernist-style Vivanta by Taj in the heart of the city of Panaji, conveniently located 28km from Dabolim Airport. The hotel is striking both inside and out, offering an elegant and generous space to suit business and leisure travellers alike. High-tech boardrooms and high-profile meeting rooms set the agenda for debate, strategy and analysis. But if you’re on holiday, it’s more likely you’ll want to lounge by the hotel pool.
If you’ve a lot on your mind, the Jiva Spa is the perfect place to let go of your worries and find balance. Enjoy a range of Ayurvedic treatments, massages, as well as meditation sessions
Kick back in one of Vivanta by Taj’s 170 rooms, each with a charming view across the city of Panjim or the heritage houses in Campal. Others soak up the lush greenery on the banks of the Mandovi River. All rooms boast Sony TVs and DVD players, Egyptian cotton bath linen, and soft pillows, while those in suites will enjoy a complimentary fruit basket, wine and chocolates.
Laze by the hotel’s rooftop pool, explore the local towns and villages, or plan a romantic evening without the kids – the options are endless. It’s all on offer at Vivanta by Taj Panaji and can easily be arranged by the hotel’s concierge. Let’s not forget the rooftop observation point for a spot of star gazing through its dedicated telescope. Fitness fanatics will be pleased to know the modern fitness centre is open 24 hours a day and offers personal training and yoga sessions.
Innovative cuisine is on offer at the hotel in its selection of restaurants and bars. Chef Sahil Desai serves his signature north Indian, Goan and Italian dishes at the stylish Latitude restaurant. Head to Tamari if you prefer pan-Asian cuisines or Caramel, a deli serving light bites, salads, cold cuts, cakes and ice cream. For nightlife, Tease serves a mean cocktail.
