Bang in the center of Goa’s capital, Panaji, this grand Art Deco–style stay boasts breathtaking views of the Mandovi River and the glittering Arabian Sea beyond. The hotel’s 170 marble- and mahogany-clad rooms are spread out over seven floors. For more space and comfort, book a Deluxe Allure Suite (625 square feet), which has such extras as a separate living room, a walk-in wardrobe and free wine. Take your pick from two top-notch restaurants: Latitude serves Goan and other Indian specialities in a palm-fringed open-plan dining room, while the more formal, marble-lined Tamari offers Chinese, Thai and Japanese cuisine — and a prodigious wine list. Kick back with a Pink Passion (vodka, passion fruit and pomegranate) at the low-lit Tease, or sip a sundowner at the poolside bar overlooking Coco Beach. Round off your stay with an Indian beauty treatment at Jiva Spa.
In the Area
Goa’s cultural diversity and laid-back vibe make it an alluring destination for the seasoned traveler. The famous Goan full moon parties are a thing of the past, but you can still hang with the hippie crowd at Moon Star Restaurant on nearby North Anjuna Beach. Here, feast on paneer tikka cooked in a brick oven with onion and green peppers. For a different experience altogether, ask at reception about the champagne sunset cruise that sets sail from Coco Beach. Farther afield, yoga enthusiasts will appreciate the range of classes, herbal healings and rejuvenating rubdowns at Ashiyana Tropical Retreat.
How to Get There
The property is located well for business travelers, and for the holiday crowd, they provide a free shuttle to the nearest beach. The rooms are thoughtful and comfortable, if lacking in view. The food is outstanding, and Taj hospitality makes you feel instantly welcome. Highly recommended.
The hotel is Centrally located with stylish restaurants,well laid out buffet breakfasts..It is not far from the Miramar beach and the old city of Panjim.The rooms are well laid out and more like a boutique hotel.

Marvellous food. A+ service. Exquisite rooms. Vivanta Panaji in Goa offers everything you could possibly ask for in a hotel. A wonderful way to get to know this beautiful city. Could not recommend more.
I do not have any negative to say about this place. It was very clean and comfortable. Not far from the downtown area. It's a big hotel so the lobby always appeared busy but the rooms and hallways were fairly quiet. Go for the breakfast buffet.
