I visited Park Hyatt, Goa a couple of weeks before Christmas and it was the perfect dream stay! The weather was warm, the sun was shining and I was able at last, to get out of all my winter gear and do all my favorite things in life--swim, walk, meditate, watch movies, take massages or just lounge in my room! Here are a number of things you can do while staying at the hotel.
Also, check out my post on My stay at the Park Hyatt, Goa, India, a luxury 5 star hotel, beach resort & spa.
The Park Hyatt, Goa is one of the largest free form swimming pools in India. It is landscaped through palm trees and tropical gardens over multiple levels and offers a spectacular view of the Arabian Sea.
2. Sun bathing
The hotel has exclusive areas around the pool-deck as well as a private beach with lounge chairs for sun-bathing.
The hotel also offers bike rentals. One can either cycle in the hotel's plush gardens or ride on the beach. I did a splendid one hour cycling tour of the beach during sunset.
4. Boat cruise with a private operator
You can also take a breathtaking boat cruise in the Arabian Sea with a private operator. The beach can be accessed through the hotel's private beach.
There are also opportunities for paragliding with a private company on the hotel beach itself.
6. Walking or running
With walking tracks cutting through 45 acres of carefully manicured gardens, plush with palm trees, lagoons and waterfalls, the hotel offers an ideal environment for both an introspective walk as well as a morning jog for fitness enthusiasts. You can also escape to the beach for a dream walk along the Arabian Sea.
The Sereno Spa at the hotel offers Ayurvedic and yogic healing treatments. Massages start at only $10!
The hotel boasts a state-of-the-art gym for those who cannot miss going to the gym even on holidays!
9. Other sports and activities
Other than walking and running, you can also play tennis, volleyball, cricket, football, lawn croquet, giant outdoor chess, archery and kite flying or table tennis and a game of pool indoors.
10. Movie fun
