Thomas Cook’s closure has zero effect on Goa tourism

Published on : Friday, October 11, 2019

According to Vincent Ramos, Area Director of IHCL, which has a chain of five-star and business resorts in Goa, the closure of global tourism travel company Thomas Cook has had a “zero to minimal” impact on properties run by the company in Goa.


Ramos also said that the launch of Ama Stays & Trails, India’s first branded product in the homestay market in Goa, was in response to growing guest needs for local, immersive and authentic experiences.


Ramos added that Goa continues to be one of the fastest growing states in the areas of well-developed social, physical and industrial infrastructures and that IHCL is witnessing year-round “healthy occupancies” in the 13 properties spread across the state.


Regarding the launch of Ama Stays & Trails properties in Goa, Ramos said that the venture is aimed towards creating the perfect blend of modern and old world living where the guests can relish immersive and authentic local experiences.


The two villas in Goa launched as part of the Ama Stays & Trails experience are ‘Cardozo House’, a four bed-roomed restored heritage Goan cottage and ‘Villa Braganza’, a two-storied modern villa, showcasing the authentic essence of Goa.


Other Ama Stays & Trails properties are in Maharashtra, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala.


“Ama Stays & Trails is ideal for people who like to experience local culture and will find plenty of opportunities to immerse themselves in the region’s traditions and customs with delectable local dishes and culinary experiences, authentic cultural activities and exploring the unexplored jewels of the place,” said Ramos.
