Marriott International has inked an agreement to introduce a second St. Regis Hotels & Resorts branded property to India.
Partnering with Ceres Hotels Private Limited, the luxury hotel portfolio will see a “strategic conversion” of The Leela Goa into The St. Regis Goa Resort, with the transformation to commence shortly ahead of a slated opening in October 2022.
The St. Regis Goa Resort is expected to serve as the ninth Marriott International hotel in Goa. The brand has an existing property in India in Mumbai.
“We are delighted to work with Ceres Hotels Private Limited to introduce the St. Regis brand to Goa, bringing bespoke experiences curated for the most discerning travellers to one of the most beautiful and fascinating coastal destinations in India,” said Rajeev Menon, President Asia Pacific (excluding Greater China), Marriott International.
“The St. Regis Goa Resort will usher in a new benchmark of luxury hospitality in this city and underscores the tremendous trust and confidence our owners have in us and in the power of our luxury brands,” Menon added.
The St. Regis Goa Resort is located on Mobor Beach, a prime beachfront location in South Goa. Surrounded by water, the beach is known for dolphin spotting, bird watching and lazy river cruises.
The resort is anticipated to feature 206 luxurious guestrooms, suites and villas and is set to showcase a variety of culinary venues, including five specialty restaurants, a fitness centre, three swimming pools, a Children’s Club, tennis courts, and a 12-hole golf course.
The enhancement will also see the signature St. Regis Spa introduced to the property.
