Varun Albuquerque, director, Alcon Victor Group, paid tribute to the acumen and craftsmanship of the late Charles Correa who had originally conceptualised and designed the resort. He said, “Dona Sylvia Resort has always resonated with old-world charm and new-world luxury, creating an authentic Goan ambience along with its perfect location on Cavelossim Beach. Today through the rebranding of the property, as a Novotel Resort, we look forward to offering an international standard product to our guests.”

Also present at the launch was Jean Michel Cassé, COO, India and South Asia, AccorHotels. He shared, “The rebranding of Novotel Goa Dona Sylvia Resort strengthens AccorHotels’ presence in the Indian market. With 17 Novotels in the country, we believe this brand is particularly well targeted for the modern Indian traveller and international guests.”


The resort features 181 rooms, villas and suites on the Arabian Sea coastline and provides a glimpse into the rich traditional Portuguese culture through a mix of contemporary and local heritage architecture, built like a small luxury village. It offers an eclectic range of spectacular dining options. Seagull, the all-day dining restaurant, serves buffet spreads and a la carte meals. Guests wanting Indian fare can head to Kebabs & Kurries, while Mama Mia offers a selection of fiery grills. Diners can also pick an assortment of beverages and nibbles at Amalia & Tia Maria, the poolside and lobby bars.

Novotel Goa Dona Sylvia Resort features two dedicated conference rooms with a capacity to serve about 200 guests. The resort also offers two magnificent Seaside Lawns by Cavelossim Beach. Sohum Spa at the property provides a variety of Indian Ayurvedic treatments, aromatherapy sessions and western massages.
