Goa as a tourist destination is constantly growing, and this is further validated by the ever increasing number of five star luxury resorts opening up in the state. Over the past couple of years, some of the world’s best hotels have launched themselves in India and have started their journey with Goa – giving the state an exclusive right to boast of certain hotel brands not present anywhere else in the country.
Planet Hollywood Beach Resort, Goa
A luxury resort, the Planet Hollywood Beach Resort in Uttorda, South Goa is the first Planet Hollywood hotel outside of the United States. The resort provides luxurious services which are some of the best in class. An excellent management and staff team at the resort are on their way to making Planet Hollywood one of the most sought after hotels in the state. A welcoming lobby with ample seating space and chartbuster songs welcomes guests when they first arrive. Within the lobby is the aesthetically designed Heart Bar which offers a wide selection of spirits and cocktails. The pool at Planet Hollywood is one of the largest in the state and the selection of lights and floor tiles in the pool, lend it an ethereal feel, especially during the late evening and night hours. The pool side seating is inviting enough and offers a perfect option to laze around. A stroll through the property is calming enough but if that was not all, it opens up to a private access to the beach. Each block of rooms at the hotel features a different theme of Hollywood genre through contemporary art form and memorabilia on display.
