“Wonderful stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2012

I stayed with my family last week for three days while on a vacation at Goa. We had a lovely time. The hotel is located in the heart of the capital Panjim, which allowed us to get the flavour of the town. The beaches were not too far away and neither was old Goa with it's famous churches. The check-in was smooth and the room (premium indulgence) on the firth floor fabulous.The breakfast spread was elaborate with all possible choices anyone could think of. We were upgraded and had access to the newly opened lounge where we spent some quality time on one of the evenings enjoying wine and cocktails. Overall a wonderful stay. Thank you, Vivanta, Panjim.

Room N0 303 seems to my Lucky Room , because everytime I book a place with Vivanta I seem to get placed here :) Nevertheless I love this property for its simple yet absolute Taj Experience.

Great Food and lots of Happy and Smiling faces ready to help you out with the smallest of things.

Wah Taj is all that comes to my mind :)

Room Tip: Check Out the Third Floor Rooms.

Keeping in mind that this is a city hotel, with easy access to all that Panaji had to offer, our 4 day stay at this hotel was a great experience from begining to end. The service was excellent with the hotel staff always eager to please us, our room on the 5th floor was great, the buffet breakfast at the Latitude offered a varied selection of foods. When I visit Goa again I will definitely stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: Choose the Deluxe Room, it is worth the price difference.

Approach - The hotel is not by the bay, closest is miramar beach and kalangute/baga beach take about 30 mins, airport is 30 mins. The surroundings of this hotels are not so good with overlooking old rusted properties on one end and filthy creek on other side.

Rooms - Rooms are the best part of this property, very well done up with luxurious interiors and washrooms. Toiletries are available on request. Rooms are equipped with LCD, good home theatre systems, all audio video inputs and connectors, iron and iron board, good mini bar and fruit basket refreshed daily. However the views from the rooms are not good. Bath is equipped with shower panels and a bath tub.

Pool Area - This is one of the finest pool areas i have visited. There is a roof top pool, with loungers and jacuzzi, good length and balanced PH levels. A good swim followed by sunbathing at the decks. Pool side assistant raju had been very helpful for everything.

Food : Food is excellent at Latitude, and a decent spread at the breakfast buffet. Indian options are better than continental.

Service : Service gets horrible at latitude during buffet hours, although they have many waiters, but all of them keep waiting. The juice bar at the buffet is not replenished continuously and after making juice orders it takes about 30 mins to serve them. Orders taken are forgotten altogether and one has to keep reminding them. Although the service levels improve once you complain, but that is for the ones who complain. The same extends to room service where if takes about an hour for them to deliver an extra empty cup. However the service is good at dining hours.

Spa - The hotel has a jiva spa, I could not try this as the massages i was looking for was for min 2 hours.

Could have given them 5 stars if the service had been good AND surroundings of the hotels had been good.

Room Tip: avoid rooms on either side :)

Everything about the hotel is great. The rooms, amenities and the facilities are great.The breakfast was excellent.
Though the hotel is not overlooking the river, it compensates it with it explicable staff, who were ready to assist at any moment. Good place to stay for a short visit in Panjim.
