“Surprisingly Good”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

I was at the Kenilworth resort during mid-may.
The hotel's locality is just the thing you require for calmness and recreation. Around 40 minutes from Panjim,this place has all you require. The service is the best. The food is to die for. The area it's spread over is mind-blowing. The rooms could be a bit better, but all that can be over-looked because of the staff. Not many hotels offer such a service. Only thing is that the activities could be added. The present ones are not that satisfactory. The check-in and check-out is smooth and swift. Definitely a thumbs up. The chef is also brilliant, offering you something if you don't like the buffet spread.

We stayed at the Kenilworth Resort and SPA in Goa for four days in May, 2014. Since we visited in the off season, the prices were great! This is an awesome place to stay at: great rooms, lawns, pool and BRILLIANT SPA! If you stay here, you should definitely plan a visit to the SPA. Great staff, with a very professional attitude about them, and the facilities are awesome too. The pool is definitely one of the better pools i have seen; big and well laid out, with a nice bar in it. The resort also had a very extensive breakfast buffet, catering equally to Indian and Continental tastes. Our stay here was absolutely money well spent!

Room Tip: Most rooms would be lawn facing but you might want a room on a higher level than the ground floor. T...

It was a very comfortable stay. Pool, the sunken bar and the pizzeria at this hotel is awesome. Beach is a close walk so works on that front as well! The staff was courteous and made us feel the stay was very hospitable. Guys handling the restaurants must ensure the bills are signed by the guests after consumption at the restaurant itself otherwise that bill seems irrelevant when it is attached in the final invoice without signature.

Came in to relax with family and did exactly that. Staff is very flexible with whatever we wanted on reservations, food, drinks, everything

We where there for 3 nights. Got a nice welcome and rushed straight to the pool. As it was 4PM and very hot, we were the only people, but immediately got 4 staff members come there, ready to serve us. Be it ice creams for the kids, the drinks and all served right at the pool

Next lounge the bar. Our favourite hang out and the best staff there. Sorry, I do not remember any names usually, but the guy was great. He not only served the drinks to my wife and me but also served the kids with whatever they wanted like fruits, cartoon on the TV etc

The beach is serene with very less crowd that is generally from a could of resorts around, but had support of life guards all the time

Breakfast was good, but we had lunch and dinner much better. A lot of choices and heavy food. Take the 3 time meal option if going there for 3 days or less. If you are going to stay there for a longer duration, prefer only the room with breakfast option

They serve with a genuine smile. All worth it!

Room Tip: Go for the first floor super deluxe rooms

Excellent ambience and even better staff. Nice place to relax and unwind - perfect holiday destination. Food is great and service is superb. Special mention for their Chef Mr Thakur who made our stay a gastronomic experience. This is our repeat visit to the property and intend to visit again. Enough activities to keep every one in the family happily engaged and people who love solitude can also have their fill with the waves giving soft background music!!!! Keep it up.

I have stayed at the Taj, Zuri and Radisson in Goa. This time, for a family vacation I decided to go with an unknown name. Reviews suggested they were very good in services and food. Kenilworth had also won 2013 viewers choice award. I have to assert that they deserve every bit of praise written in reviews here. Location of the resort is great. It is away from hustle bustle but not very far from the markets, airport and madgaon city. Property is very clean with king size rooms (even the deluxe ones) and very well spread out. More than 75% of the place is occupied by lush green lawns, trees, tennis & basketball courts, open air chess and a sufficiently large 3 tier pool with an attached bar. It was an uphill task to get my 4 year old kid out of the pool as was dragging myself out. The gardens lead out to quiet and super clean Utorda beach with white sands where you can do water sports. They also had a very cool lounge cum recreation room where my whole family enjoyed.

The restaurant is a tad smaller in area and the buffets serve decent variety for veg and non-veg. But when it comes to taste, it is simply awesome! I must say, no other restaurant in South Goa (except may be, Martin's Corner) serves food thats more tasty. Add to that excellent service by Rahul and management by Pooja. She'd carry our 6 month old daughter while we ate. That was so lovely. Icing on the cake was the massage we had at Soham spa! This was one of the best family holidays I had. Thanks Kenilworth staff!

Room Tip: Choose a room on first floor if you want a sea view

Kenilworth is a wonderful resort to spend a vacation. Located close to the Utorda beach, the resort has direct beach access. Lush greenery with widespread lawns and coconut palms offer a relaxing and recreational stay, with a feel of space. The pools are comfortably designed for all age groups, with kids play area and featuring very good safety. The walk around the property is simply relaxing and refreshing.
Kenilworth has no sea view rooms; though located close to the beach. However, distant views are possible from certain balconies facing the garden.
The restaurant menu is good, though not very exciting; but a bit expensive.
The common areas are vast, and the fountain at the entrance is awesome. Air conditioning in the lobby or bar are not so efficient, while rooms are quite comfortable.
Staff is very courteous and helpful.
Overall, this is a place worth staying in Goa for a relaxing experience.

Room Tip: Choose a backside garden view room with balcony that has a distant sea view.
