(12 Apr 2022, 11:48 +07) Marriott has signed an agreement with Ceres Hotels to bring the St. Regis brand to Goa, India.
Slated to open in October 2022, the St. Regis Goa Resort is expected to be the ninth Marriott International hotel in Goa, following a strategic conversion of The Leela Goa, which will undergo a complete transformation.
The resort is located approximately 28 kilometers south of the Goa International Airport and will be accessible via the Dabolim-Cavelossim road over a 60-minute, picturesque drive through the Goan countryside.
Ceres Hotels, the owner of the resort, is a subsidiary of Metrod Holdings Berhad which is listed on the Kuala Lumpur stock exchange.

“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.”
Spread across 49-acres, the St. Regis Goa Resort is located on Mobor Beach, a prime beachfront location in South Goa. Surrounded by water on three sides, the beach is known for dolphin spotting, bird watching and lazy river cruises.
The hotel features 206 guestrooms, suites and villas, five specialty restaurants, a fitness center, three swimming pools, a Children’s Club, tennis courts and a 12-hole golf course.
With an anticipated 1,183 square meters of meeting space, and an additional 1,000 square meters of expansive function lawns overlooking the Mobor beach, the multi-purpose venues will be ideal for weddings, socials, meetings and conventions.
Plans are also in place for a St. Regis Spa, which will offer guests a range of bespoke treatments and experiences.
