Review : Alila Diwa Goa | Luxury Resort in Goa | TSD Goa Diaries

Wednesday 2 December 2015

Hey lovely people!
Last month I had visited Goa for a short vacation and had shared many updates about the same on my social media accounts.
During my stay, I spent 2 nights at the luxurious property - Alila Diwa Goa which is a unique resort located in Majorda, just 20 minutes from Goa Dabolim International Airport.

While planning this vacation, I was looking for resorts which not only offer luxury but also a comfortable and peaceful stay, as I wanted to take a relaxing break from the hectic Delhi life.

I am glad that I chose Alila Diwa Goa for my stay in Goa, read on to know my experience-

We had a late evening flight, and the last thing we wanted to do was to find the hotel with tiring faces in a new city. But gladly, the hotel staff arranged an Airport pick-up, which ensured a comfortable journey from the airport to the hotel.

Diwa Club Suite
We were welcomed by the hotel staff with a refreshing Welcome Drink and as soon as we were shown our room - we knew we were here for a great time.

Alila Diwa Goa boasts of 153 rooms and suites that offer havens of space, comfort and serenity. And we had the beautiful Diwa Club suite for our stay, which is a part of the exclusive Diwa Club - with a concept of a Resort within a Resort at Alila.

Our room had a private balcony, living room, a bar, a spacious dressing and shower bathroom with a separate bathub which was already prepared at our arrival with hot water, roses and scent.

This suite was one of the most spacious rooms I have come across in a Luxury resort so far, making the Diwa Club stand true to its name - a Diva in its own right.

While Club Diwa has its own private pool, an open air Jacuzzi and private all-day dining Bistro; the main area also has an infinity pool to accommodate the guests of the Alila Diwa.

What makes this property different from other resorts in Goa is that it is surrounded by lush green plantations, gardens, swaying palm grooves and sparkling waters of the Arabian Sea. It takes you away from the hustle & bustle of city life, so that you enjoy your stay feeling calm and serene.

For all your dining needs, Alila Diwa has two main restaurants to serve various tastes and needs:

For a relaxed meal at any time of the day, one can dine at VIVO which overlooks the resort pool and paddy fields, and features comfortable indoor and shaded open-air spaces for a delightful experience. One can enjoy their favorites dishes from the vast Oriental, Indian and Continental menu.

The restaurant which actually made us awestruck was the Spice Studio which has a contemporary setup for a unique dining experience centered on Indian flavors, various techniques and cooking styles. Don't forget to try the Chef special Sea food while at the restaurant which has the local flavors that are totally mouthwatering.

For quick drinks by the pool, they have Edge Bar which overlooks the cool blue waters of the infinity pool and serves as a stylish venue for a drink after a swim or in the evening.

This resort has certainly been designed keeping in mind the needs of a luxury traveler, who often travels with family and friends.
Its facilities like Kids Club, Kids pool, private mini theater, Library, Fitness Center, salon and more really left us impressed.

One of the other attractions of the resort is its Alila Living boutique which is perfect for shoppers like me who wish to enjoy their vacation peacefully, while not wishing to travel far for their shopping needs like buying Souvenirs, gifts etc.

One can also buy their amazing range of Skincare products from the boutique which are exclusively made for Alila Diwa and used in their spas too.

I also experienced a Spa therapy at the Spa Alila which I will be covering separately in the next post.

Overall, if you are planning your next vacation in Goa and looking for a place which offers luxury yet world class services with best hospitality, Alila Diwa Goa is the perfect place for you, and I am sure you will also come back feeling awed of this beautiful property.
