Azaya Beach Resort - Goa


‘man’speak: goa  is  always  a  good idea, especially if it is a beachfront luxury resort in the quieter part of the sunny state, specialising in personalised services and luxe experiences. The sarafs, experts in running hotels  across  the  country  (they  brought hyatt to india), finally bite the bullet by getting their own  branded,  luxury  resort  in the holiday capital of india. We  especially  dig  the  suites  with one’s own private plunge pool,  with  design  and  luxury  aesthetics  oozing  from  every  corner.

Lip-smacking: chef anuj kapoor,  who  has  to  his  credit  launching  restaurants  like  olive   in   delhi,   whips   up   foods from around the world for  you  at  la  concha,  while  lynx bar & lounge upstairs is a new-york-meets-new-del-hi style high-octane bar, and a direct  antidote  to  the  beach  shack culture permeating goa otherwise.  But  the  place  we  loved  the  most  was  the  blue  iris beachfront restaurant with private cabana seating, which whips up the best of local sea-food.


Don’t  even  go  there: some  of the cocktails, though much hyped, turned out to be disturbingly sweet or uninspiring. The hotel staff seem a bit clueless– hopefully nothing that better training and on-job picking-up-the-threads can’t fix.

How to get there: azaya is on benaulim beach in south goa, a 45-minute drive from dabolim airport.
