We stayed for 2 nights at this property and it was a simply fabulous experience. The hotel is situated on Uttorda beach – white sand, clear skies and not at all crowded - a quite beautiful beach untouched by commercial activities.
We arrived at Goa airport early morning and the complimentary pick-up car was waiting for us. In South Goa, this is one of the closest hotels to the airport after Park Hyatt. Though we reached early in the morning, the hotel very kindly gave us an early check-in. The hotel is so well maintained right from the rooms to the lobby area, the gardens, the swimming pool. You really can’t ask for better; it’s definitely comparable to some of India’s best five star properties.
Just one little issue is that the when we booked the hotel we were sent an email saying that a pick up and drop from the airport in included in our tariff. While there were no issues with the pick-up, regarding the drop we were informed that there are scheduled drops at fixed timings. This may be a slight issue if your flight timing doesn’t coincide with this schedule. So would advise just check on this front with the hotel while doing the booking.
While here, a dinner at Martin’s Corner is a must, this is about 20 mins from the hotel. If you need to hire a car, please book one from the hotel itself and ask for a receipt upfront, the local taxis drivers can totally swindle you. And to hire a bike, walk for about 5 mins past Royal Orchid and you will see a board on your right hand side. You can hire a bike for the day from the lady there, who is extremely helpful and co-operative.
To sum up, it was a great stay and would totally recommend Kenilworth to anyone who prefers to stay in this side of Goa.
