beach resort, Goa

Living in Bangalore, we feel quite beach deprived here. The lakes are, of course, not the same. And, during the pandemic, we had only been to a resort by the hills. But, beach holidays rejuvenate you, don’t they?

We were yearning to visit my native place (my dad was originally a Goan) for several reasons but the beach was our main focus. So, we decided to book a hotel in the South and stay right there on the shore for all 4 nights and 5 days. Thanks to God, it did not rain while we were there.


When we entered the resort, there was a loud welcome for the wedding guests who had booked the place. It was good entertainment in Bollywood style though the whole resort is themed ‘Hollywood’ with various pictures, signatures and models of Hollywood celebrities and the like. The resort is pet-friendly and has a spa. They also have auditoriums, a pool bar and other recreational activities in the evenings.

Planet Hollywood is located on the Uttorda beach in South Goa. I remember sitting on the white sand and buying artificial jewellery from the ladies there. This beach is located between Majorda Beach and Cansaulim Beach. We had walked through Majorda Beach and almost reached Sunset Beach. You can even reach Colva Beach (6 kms) and Benaulim Beach (8 kms).

The closest airport is Goa International Airport. The Margaon Bus Station is 9 km and the Madgaon Railway Station is 12 km from here.

We enjoyed each day at the swimming pool as it was only 1.2 meters deep throughout. So, I did not have the fear of my short structure suddenly drowning somewhere. They have another shallow pool for kids and an open jacuzzi for everyone. The whole deck is made of wood to keep your feet from burning. We got badly tanned tough.


All their rooms have air conditioning and a balcony. They have the following room types: Superior Garden View, Luxury Pool View, Supreme Sea View, Executive Suite and Premier Suite. Their prices include the breakfast buffet (which is yummy) and WiFi (which we all cannot live without).

If you’re lazy to get out of your room, their awesome room service will pamper you even more.

We had lunch at Poseidon’s Cove Beach Grill on two days. On both days, we stayed there until sunset. Though I watch the sunset every evening from my bedroom balcony, it was lovely to see it set behind the glittering ocean, too.

The food was very fresh and tasty. We ordered sushi, sashimi, fried prawns, calamari in rechado masala and some yummy fish curry and rice.

Fame is another restaurant which is open only for recreational activities in the evenings.

Hubby and I had a nice couple spa at the PINK ROOM though their masseuses could be a little gentler while placing or removing the towels on our bodies. If you’re looking for other restaurants around the area, I would recommend Cajy’s Multicuisine Restaurant and Bar. Here we ordered butter garlic calamari, masala prawns, fried fish, roast beef and topped it with prawn curry and rice.

As a family, we had a ball in Uttorda. Though their skin turned into a different colour, my kids did not want to get back home.
