Goa is known for its picturesque beaches and numerous party spots, but DoubleTree by Hilton introduces new ways for holiday-goers to spend time in the country’s favourite vacation state. Located in Panaji, DoubleTree is situated between North and South Goa, and is easily accessible from Dabolim International Airport.

Who wouldn’t want to wake up to the soft sounds of birds chirping and a scenic riverside view? Situated against the panoramic backdrop of River Mandovi, one of DoubleTree’s signature design features is a 130-year-old mango tree in the courtyard, where you can laze around and leisurely bond with your family. The lush lawn is perfect to enjoy the sunset (or sunrise if you are an early-riser during vacations as well). This verdant Goa hotel has been built to allow an uninterrupted connection with nature, making it ideal for a peaceful and relaxing stay.

Right from architectural elements to the cutlery, everything at the DoubleTree draws from its local surroundings. The interiors of the hotel are inspired by Goan and Portuguese architecture. Indigenous elements have been woven into the design of the property; the building has been constructed using laterite stone and roof steeples, a feature of Goan churches.

Though the restaurants are multi-cuisine, we recommend the authentic Mangalorean food which includes fish and prawns curry and appam, among other lip-smacking delicacies. The breakfast spread has a wide range of South Indian dishes, comprising different types of dosas, idlis and your favourite chutneys to go with it.

However, what makes The DoubleTree by Hilton perfect for a family getaway, is the host of activities that DoubleTree offers. While adults can indulge in the special couples massage at the spa, there’s plenty to keep the children entertained too. From dim sum making workshops to glass painting to hula hoop competitions, the hotel’s Pik Pequeno Club has a range of activities designed to keep your little ones engrossed and encourage them to pick up a new skill.

With a mix of amenities like an infinity pool and natural backwaters, DoubleTree by Hilton Goa is a concoction of modern and traditional Goa, building a fascinating ambience and making it a perfect destination for your next family getaway.
