Hilton Worldwide will open the newly-renovated DoubleTree by Hilton Goa-Arpora-Baga, the third DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in India on 15 August 2012.

 Ensconced in a quiet setting, the 104-room hotel is located centrally just a few kilometres from the picturesque Baga and Anjuna beaches and in the heart of the popular shopping, dining and entertainment districts.

 The Saturday Nite Bazaar and Splash Water Park are both within walking distance from the hotel, and the Anjuna Flea Market is also close, making the hotel a comfortable and convenient base from which to explore the breathtaking coastline of North Goa.

Formerly known as Riviera De Goa, the DoubleTree by Hilton Goa-Arpora-Baga will mark its new affiliation with a range of refurbishments that include refreshed guestrooms and public spaces, extensive landscaping, a new business centre, up-to-date technology and an enhanced dining experience that will encompass the new restaurant Flame, which will offer an extensive menu of Goan, Indian, Chinese and Italian delicacies.

Martin Rinck, president, Asia Pacific, Hilton Worldwide, said, The launch of DoubleTree by Hilton Goa-Arpora-Baga will be another significant step in our growth strategy in India as it will represent our entry into a leisure destination in the country. With the opening of this hotel, Hilton Worldwide will operate ten hotels in India. Following on from a great year of growth in 2011, when we opened six hotels, we are expanding rapidly in India and anticipate increasing our presence to fourteen hotels by the end of this year.

Rob Palleschi, global head, DoubleTree by Hilton, added, DoubleTree by Hilton Goa-Arpora-Baga will reiterate our commitment to welcoming international travellers in key destinations. With the launch of this, our third hotel in India, we will be well on our way to achieving our target of increasing our network to 25 hotels in the country by 2016. We have two hotels in Delhi NCR, at Gurgaon and Mayur Vihar, and we will open an all-suite, extended-stay hotel in Bangalore in the last quarter of the year.
