“A slice of tranquility, but in massive proportion.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

Yup. This place is huge. 85 acres to be precise. At is pretty far away from everything else. Approximately 2 hrs drive from the airport, Lalit Goa ( formerly known as Intercontinental ) is a delightful place. But before choosing this place, you need to have absolute clarity as to why are you in Goa.

If your objective is to frequent the pubs, eating joints as well as the beaches of North Goa, Lalit would not be the right choice.like I have mentioned earlier, this property is in South Goa, and is far away for almost everything. This place is ideal for a peaceful family getaway or corporate events where you don't want the participants to stray into the sinful Casinos. Let me spend a few lines o describe the property.

Massive, beautiful and tranquil. That's what it is. 85 acres of pure bliss. The wide spread lawns, coconut trees, beach and the Sea make for a heady natural brew. If you want to enjoy a round of golf, you do have the option. There are host of activities on the premises to while away your time.
Rooms happen to be like the rest of the property. Huge. They have very effective air conditioning, supremely comfortable beds, a very well stocked mini bar, swanky bathroom - with a sparking bath tub and the piece-de-résistance..the balcony. Especially designed to put you feet up and stare at the Sea, while enjoying the sultry Goan weather.In a nutshell, everything happens to be perfect.

That more less covers everything...and lest I forget. Special mention to the staff, both front desk as well as room service. They have taken the meaning of hospitality to a different level. If I were you, and wanted a perfect getaway with family in Goa....this would be the place I would come to. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Take the sea facing rooms. You will pay more, but won't regret doing so.

Dear Guest,

Namaskar!

It was indeed a pleasure to have you staying with us during your visit to Goa and I thank you for taking time out and sharing your feedback. Your kind words encourage the team to further strive for excellence and provide each guest with our signature Lalit hospitality.

I regret the inconvenience caused to you during the drive from the airport. As you have rightly mentioned our sprawling resort built along the Goan coastline away from the hustle and bustle of the city, is an exquisite haven ideal for relaxation & rejuvenation.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon at The Lalit Golf & Spa Resort Goa.

Situated in Canacona, on the outskirts of Goa, it takes around one and a half hour to reach the hotel from the Goa Dabolim airport. But the tiredness of the drive to the resort is removed as soon as you enter the sprawling property with plush green golf lawns welcoming you and giving you that feel good factor right from the start. The rooms are amazingly huge with their antique interiors manifesting luxury too. The beach and the swimming pool at the back side provide with ample recreational activities as well as a romantic walk with your partner of the property will definitely be a treat to the eye and boost your love due to the peace and beauty the property offers. The hotel is worth the money, and a must stay when visiting Goa for a good 4-5 days.

A very beautiful property, worth every penny we paid. We had a fabulous time at The Lalit, a very relaxed vacation, just what we were looking for.
We were in Casa 1, in one of the sea facing suites, which was huge with a lot of living space. The restaurants were all close-by, and so was the beach. The view from the suite is not really sea-facing, but these are the best views in the hotel.

The food in the hotel was good too, but if you are paying for it, you might feel that it is a bit too expensive. The range was good for the buffets, but ala carte menu feels restricted. The breakfast buffet was lavish, and can easily be called a Brunch!

The staff is very polite, and always ready to help. There was a huge wedding party when we visited, and I was anticipating chaos at the breakfast tables. but I was pleasantly surprised to see that alternate arrangements were made for all the guests of the hotel, and nothing in our routine was disturbed. I must say, one of the best treatments in this regard.

I've stayed in a lot of 5 star hotels both in India and abroad till now, and I will say that The Lalit will remain my favorite place among all these.

Huge property. .luxurious rooms. .the food and the hospitality was excellent. but is a 2 hours drive from the city. .it can be extremely tiring every time you might go out for sightseeing since 4 hours would be spent travelling. . if that is not an issue then it is a great place for a relaxing weekend

This resort is fantastic!! Amazing. Rooms are large and very clean!!Being off season there were not a lot of guests so my friend and I were treated like queens by all the staff here. The doorman, Praveen, greeted us everyday and made sure we felt welcome!! The bar staff were great and made awesome cocktails..thanks Humanshu, Dipak and Frepy!! U made us feel very special!! And the staff in the canacona restaurant could not have made us feel more welcome!! The managers would come each meal and make sure we were happy!! All were great but especially Sebastio and Aditya, manab and Javed!! The chefs, Martina and Chandra outstanding and came out to talk to us everyday we were there..even the room staff were great each day making us new towel animals so thanks Nikita and peunka!! This is a pricey hotel but well worth the stay..we felt very special the week we stayed!! Cannot recommend enough!!

The place is inviting and big, like most plush resorts, they have taken good care of the premises and the staff is well groomed and polite. The landscape is a treat for the eyes and the gardens are beautifully manicured. We found that both our rooms were quite big and comfortable, the mattress and pillows need a special mention. The food I tried was good and the breakfast had decent options for vegetarians.

This seems to be a favorite wedding destination and thus brings along some irritants (if you consider) like loud music, hustle bustle on the beach, fireworks etc.

Small issues like - non functioning lift or ~30 minutes wait for A-La-Carte dinner order, can be pro-actively addressed by the management.

If you decide to stay in this part of Goa, far from the airport (~1.5 hrs), this is a good pick.
