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
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.”
