Swissôtel to launch Goa resort


Swissôtel Hotels & Resort will soon launch its first resort in the Indian coastal state of Goa.

Scheduled to welcome its first guests in the first quarter 2013, the Swissôtel Goa is located in the town of Calangute – one of the state’s most popular tourist areas.  

The 135 rooms and suites will be split among eight three-level buildings, set in tropical gardens with lily ponds. Facilities will include a courtyard swimming pool area with pool bar, cafe, fitness centre, kids’ club, and conference and banqueting space. There will also be a beach club located on Calangute Beach.

“With the Swissôtel Goa, we are complementing our growing Indian hotel portfolio with an attractive holiday resort. With the already-opened Swissôtel Kolkata and the three Swissôtels under development in Mumbai, Noida and Bangalore (Bengalauru), our portfolio on the Indian subcontinent is growing continuously,” said Meinhard Huck, Swissôtel’s President. “We look forward to welcoming our first guests at Swissôtel Goa.”
