Combining comfort of a home-away from- home and luxury services of a resort, Richmonde Ananta Elite Goa is a strategic move towards expansion, taking Ananta Hotels & Resorts beyond Rajasthan. “As a brand, we have been primarily based out of Rajasthan. However, now we are fast growing to be a national player and Goa is one destination from where we thought to move ahead with our pan-India expansion vision,” said Gagan Katyal, VP, Sales & Strategy, Ananta Hotels & Resorts.

Katyal added, “Goa, which is one of the most preferred destinations for domestic as well as international travellers, has always been the top pick to cast an impression on India about the growing presence of Ananta.”

The juggernaut of domestic tourism maintains its strong pull, driving occupancy across the country. “Domestic tourism continues to be a high trend as Indians have started exploring the country. And they will continue to do so,” observed Katyal. Adding to it, he highlighted that bleisure has given way to blended travel. “Family & friends holidays and extended business stays are coming out as top travel trends at the moment. This apart, weddings have also been driving business for leisure properties throughout the year,” he said.

The luxury hotel, consisting of styled villas and apartments in Saligao, a picturesque village close to Baga beach in North Goa, is designed for a lifestyle of pure indulgence. Developed on the concept of home-away-from-home, the luxurious villas offer a blend of Goan joie de vivre and all the contemporary amenities and comforts that one craves for. “We converted the villa residential complex with some apartments into hotel, which is the trend these days,” he informed.

Over the years, the demand for luxury villas as well as service apartments in Goa has seen a substantial rise. An increasing number of travellers are booking for extended stays. Agreed Katyal, “We have seen that the average length of stay in Goa is more than three nights. HNIs and domestic travellers are preferring to take on apartments and villas for their stay in Goa. This establishment is going to be the perfect place for travellers seeking an accommodation near the hustle and bustle of North Goa with all the modern amenities.”

The banquet facility is offered to cater to the ever-growing wedding segment, as Goa is also one of the top wedding destinations in the country.
