If you're going to Goa in the monsoons it should be to take in the lush green beauty everywhere and the roaring tides of the seas. The Park Hyatt lets you do both and indulge yourself, typically at a bargain price since this is supposedly "off season". It's a magnificent property with nice understated villas and sprawling, rolling gardens maintained by an army of gardeners (seriously, an army) who work tirelessly even during the monsoons to preserve the beauty of the place. The staff thankfully gives you your space and provides quiet, efficient yet warm hospitality (we got flowers sent to our room with a cake when they discovered it was our anniversary). Everywhere you go there's a sense of generous space. The 3 swimming pools (that i managed to count) spread over a large area mean you can swim without bumping into other people! The food at the resort's restaurants is great and expectedly expensive. The lounge is very inviting, really comfortable and has a fantastic view. .and they played Jazz which made my evening! My recommendation of enjoying the resort over the next few months (during the rains) is to book a few days (all meals for the extremely lazy/tired), carry swimming trunks (yes you should swim in the rain!!), waterproof footwear that's good for walks, music if you must (i'd suggest the sound of the seas should be enough) and a lot of books. Try and get a room towards the back (with balconies providing a view of the lagoon or the gardens/lawns nearby and the sea in the distance). Keep one of the large umbrellas provided by the resort outside your room at all times. Spend your day either reading in the balcony in the company of the many pretty small birds, or walking around the pathways providing views of the unspoilt beach in many places. If you get a break from the rain during one of the days, spend some quiet time on the beach, especially in the evening. Take breaks only to nap, eat and swim (don't watch TV!!). I can't recommend any of the spa treatments since i didn't use any of them! On at least one of the evenings, have a drink or 2 in the lounge followed by dinner at Casa Sarita (Goan) or Da Luigi (Italian). Breakfast is simply great, be sure to sample some of the hotel baked bread and the variety of cheeses! If at all you want other options, there's a budget bar & restaurant within walking distance (come out to the main road and turn right), which is actually pretty nice too and more in line with the Goan spirit:)!! Also, be sure to have dinner at Martin's which is only 4KMs away from the hotel (book a cab if you can't bike it in the rains). If you insist on visiting the north (this is probably the only time it's peaceful like it used to be), Panaji is a delight to walk around and click photographs (if you have a waterproof camera). Baga's usually a messy place I'd avoid, although during this time if you're lucky you may be able to enjoy a nice dinner at Mambo's with the sea providing a fitting soundtrack (unless the they insist on drowning it out with whatever passes of as music these days). All in all, a great holiday from which i actually got back feeling rejuvenated (even though I didn't visit the Spa)!
