Pre-Christmas 2014 and the luxurious Holiday Inn
It does not take too long for the sun kissed Goan beaches to attract us towards its allure. We are frequent and dedicated visitors of the tropical paradise. The shacks, the silky touch of the sand, the Arabian Seaside, the food, the music and the euphoria attached is far too irresistible to fall short of consideration. After our last visit in October, we decided to pay one last one in 2014 in the festive December months.
As they say, travel and stay has to be comfortable for making a vacation spend worthy in fact remember worthy. This time we chose “Holiday Inn Resort” on the picturesque Mobor beach in Cavelossim, South Goa. And I think the very stay became one of the high points of our vacation.
Spread over acres of land, Holiday Inn Resort is a property apt for spending some magical moments with family and friends. The chic decor of the lobby and the welcoming and warm faces of the staff, gives you a lovely feeling of what you are heading towards. Though I thought the check in formalities are a bit too clumsy yet the ambiance makes it up. Fortunately we had chosen the Christmas time and had the added privilege of witnessing some extra light and glitter here and there, keeping in tune to festivities around. Two giant Christmas trees and a refreshing apple drink welcomed us with open arms to experience the indulgence.
The rooms were spacious, cozy and chic, as if tailor made for repose. The balcony of ours had the exotic view of the glittering blue poolside. As we walked past the poolside, lush green lawns awaited us to quench the thirst of our tired eyes. The velvet touch of the superbly maintained green carpet lined with palm trees sends a rejuvenating energy across your veins. It’s best to lie down and relax forgetting all worldly gains and losses.
The greenery ends to kiss the soft and lustrous golden sand, lined with sun bath chairs. Mobor beach is really nature’s Magnum opus. However maintenance of the beauty and keeping intact the untouched feeling of the place depends solely on the Hotel authorities, keeping in view the number of tourists that set foot to invade each year. And very evidently they do their job too well.
From dawn when the crimson rays of the sun start to spread it’s hue to dusk when it gradually sinks to the massive sea, the blue waters and golden sand looks majestic. As gradually darkness embraces the entire property is illuminated with thousands of tastefully placed lamps, a special mention of the blue lights at the pool.
At last, I would like to add, that choosing the appropriate place to put up is most important to have a stay studded with cherished memories and Holiday Inn Resort can very well serve this purpose.
