GMR Airports has been given the green light to develop a brand new airport in Goa, after a competitive bidding process. The firm, which runs Delhi and Hyderabad airports, will build the Mopa Airport on a greenfield site in Goa in four phases, to help expand air capacity. When completed, it is expected to have capacity for 13 million passengers a year.
A historic moment for Goa, a young man with brittle bone disease recently won a competition that granted him the first ever wheelchair accessible holiday to the stunning Indian beach destination. Thanks to organisations like UMOJA, awareness of those with special needs is being raised in the country.
Travellers to North Goa now have a new luxury hotel to choose from, filled with upscale amenities and features. The Rio Royale just opened its doors, promoted as an all-suite hotel with elegant dining options and sophisticated features. The hotel is the latest offering from a company already dedicated to providing five-star luxury in the popular tourist destination.
Tucked away behind Coco Beach in north Goa, Coco Shambhala is one of the world's most luxurious and exclusive sun and sand getaways. Specialising in first-rate service with friendly staff, offering tailor-made gourmet dishes and featuring spacious treehouse-like accommodations, this complex was recognised as one of the top 25 beach villas by Conde Nast Traveller magazine.
Despite initial promises that it would rid the Mandovi river of the offshore casinos docked there, Goa's BJP- led coalition has done a 180 stating that it would not want to send the wrong message to the industry and chase away investors. The decision is likely to be welcomed not only by investors but also by the holidaymakers who visit Goa each year to enjoy its buzzing nightlife.
