WelcomeHeritage signs Panjim Inn Goa
ITC’s WelcomHeritage has signed Goa’s Panjim Inn to its network. The hotel consists of three different mansions next to each other – the Panjim Inn, the Panjim Pousada and the Panjim People’s with a total of 37 rooms.
Located in the centre of the state of Goa and though not a beach location, our Panjim Mansions are ideal for those seeking a perfect Goan experience influenced by Portuguese culture, architecture, cuisine and markets. Ferry point and casinos are walking distance and both the North and South Goan beaches and markets are within easy access.
WelcomHeritage Panjim Inn has been part of the Latin Quarter Pantheon for many years and was amongst the first big colonial mansions of Fontainhas. Built in the late 1800’s by Francis Assis D’Silveira, the family brazao adorns the wrought iron railings and gilded pelmets.
WelcomHeritage Panjim Inn offers 24 rooms, each unique and individual in character. With four poster beds, carved rosewood almirahs and period furniture, it creates nostalgia for the past. Modern amenities include mini- bars, televisions and electronic safes in all the rooms. With local and Continental cuisine on offer, the restaurant is on the first floor overlooking the street junction. Buffet meals are also served on the ground floor of the Hotel.
WelcomHeritage Panjim Pousada, the second mansion is located just 50 metres from WelcomHeritage Panjim Inn. It consists of nine rooms and is an oasis of tranquility. Not quite as old as the Panjim Inn, the Pousada was rebuilt in the 1930’s.
WelcomHeritage Panjim People’s is located just opposite WelcomHeritage Panjim Inn. Until recently, this vintage building of the 1880’s was home to the People’s High School, Goa’s foremost primary educational institution. Now a heritage hotel, it has four exclusive rooms furnished with antique furniture and original art works.
The ground floor of WelcomHeritage Panjim People’s houses the gallery Gitanjali, showcasing paintings by contemporary Indian and overseas artists.
The ground floors of both WelcomHeritage Panjim Inn and WelcomHeritage Panjim People’s have the facilities to host conferences.
