TravelBiz Monitor organised familiarisation trips to the newly-opened Mayfair On-Sea, Morjim Goa recently. The familiarisation trips were undertaken in three phases, and around 70 select travel agents from Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Pune, and Nagpur participated in seeing the property. The trip assumed significance against the backdrop of tourism recovery post-pandemic. Besides this, Goa has always been very close to the heart of the tourism industry. Naturally, the participants during their trip took keen interest in the property.
After the trip, TravelBiz Monitor spoke to people from across the cities to ascertain their views and they are unanimous in saying that they stayed in well furnished accommodations that come with modern interiors, contemporary furniture, and suites with bath tubs, among other category specific amenities. Describing the Mayfair-On-Sea as a good property for buyouts and celebrations, Subhash Motwani, Founder Director, Namste Tourism, said, “Located on white sandy Morjim Beach with good amenities and many options for various activities makes the property perfect for small incentive groups or even families who wish to stay in North Goa, far from the madding crowd.” He also said that it was a well organised trip.
Besides amenities, location gives the property a very advantageous position when compared with other hotels and resorts in similar categories in Goa. Margaret Rasquinha, OwnerDreamscape Tours Pvt Ltd, opined that the USP of
the Mayfair-On-Sea is its location. “The property is well suited for middle and high-end customers and families. It is also good for small corporate conferences and events,” said Rasquinha.
Narrating his experience, Ajay Prakash, President, TAFI, said, “I had the pleasure of spending 2 nights at Mayfair- On- Sea a few weeks ago. I was going back to Morjim after many years and I was afraid that Morjim, too, like many other beaches would have been ruined by over-commercialisation. But the resort was a delightful surprise. It’s set right on the beach which is pristine, the water is crystal clear and we witnessed a school of dolphins a short boat ride from shore.” He also said that the Mayfair touch is evident in the warm hospitality – the ever smiling staff is always ready to attend to every guest’s smallest need. “The pool is lovely and the three-bedroom villa attached to the resort is perfect for a group of friends or a large family. This is Mayfair’s first property in Goa and it’s a hit,” said Prakash.
According to Jyot Jhaveri, Director, Sunday Pure Holidays, it was a well organised familiarisation trip right from arrival to departure. “The property of Mayfair is superb and they blended Mayfair culture and experience with Goan style. Since the property is right on the Morjim beach makes us feel that we are in our own private beach.” Jhaveri also said that green cover in the resort and spacious rooms, bathrooms and sit-out balconies further reinforces the feeling of a private beach. “Truly said, Space is Luxury,” he said.
Apart from the location and amenities, the food and beverage of the resort has also impressed the participants of the familiarisation trip. “Food and Beverages are good,” said Valmiki Hari Kishan, Director, Valimiki Travels. However, Kishan exhorted that the management of the property need to sort out the issue of cabs and coaches as they are exorbitantly charging the guests. “There are very few flights to North Goa which compel guests to touch South Goa hence paying more for flight tickets,” he pointed out.
Ajay Kumar Vishwakarma, MD, Yatra Vacation, said that the property is perfect for any get together comprising 50-60 people. “It is suitable for all segments of travel,” he said.
