This women’s day, the iconic Taj Fort Aguada Resort & Spa and Taj Holiday Village Resort & Spa played host to the first of a series of Westside events. The ‘Style Retreat’ invited eight of the retail house’s loyal lady patrons to experience the best of both Tata brands over a 2-day staycation. While attending seminars on fragrance, beauty and home, the women also indulged in culinary curations at exclusive locations across both properties. This ranged from dining under the 300-year-old Banyan Tree at Taj Holiday Village’s specialty Thai restaurant, to overlooking waves crashing against the historic Fort Aguada while getting an authentic taste of Goa with Morisco’s Goan Heritage Thali.

Further rejoicing the spirit of all those present, an exclusive interactive session was also organised with the face of the fashion brand, Sameera Reddy at Villa Siolim – ama stays and trails.

At IHCL’s recently launched premium homestays -ãma stays and trails, the actor and influencer shared her inspiring journey into body positivity, appreciating the manner in which Westside’s new line ‘Limitless’ celebrates authenticity and promotes self-love.

“As a consumer first brand, Westside has always strived to build strong connections and resonance with its customers by celebrating them, especially women. ‘ Style Retreat’ is an ode to these women who have time and again encouraged our presence by being our highly valuable customers” shared Umashan Naidoo, Head Customer & Beauty, Westside.

Expressing his views on this tie-up, Anmol Ahluwalia, Cluster General Manager, Taj, North Goa said, “We are thrilled to associate with Westside, which shares the same amount of warmth and sincerity when it comes to creating customer delight.

For us, each guest is an integral part of our journey towards excellence and it is with these unique Tajness moments that we string together our unique offerings of Trust, Awareness and Joy.”

Alila Diwa Goa: First hotel in Goa to install a water bottling plant

Alila Diwa Goa, a lifestyle Hyatt resort in Goa, becomes the first hotel to install a water bottling plant in partnership with impact startup, Boon.

The bottling plant installed at Alila Diwa Goa will prevent an estimated 50 tons of carbon emissions and eradicate use of around 350,000 plastic bottles annually.

Alila Diwa Goa, a lifestyle Hyatt resort in South Goa, creates memorable experiences for guests by providing intimate interactions with the people, culture, and traditions of the destination, while also being responsible for the community and the environment.

Furthering its cause of responsible tourism, Alila Diwa Goa is proud to be the first hotel in Goa to install an automated sustainable drinking water bottling plant at its property, in partnership with Boon (Formerly known as Swajal WaterCube).

Alila Diwa Goa takes pride in supporting sustainable tourism and reducing its carbon footprint by using bio-degradable materials. The resort takes great care in minimizing its environmental impact by using primarily local materials and working with the environment.

The Zero Mile Water program works on the circular economy principle, where an automated in-house system washes, sterilizes and fills glass bottles, thereby not only cutting down on plastic waste but also eliminating carbon emissions involved in transporting the bottles to the hotel from a plant.

Guests can scan a unique QR code to get insights on the drinking water quality and impact in real time.
