As part of the recce for the next Traders Carnival Conference, Rekha and I landed at Goa on 14th November 2021. Yes, I know, it is exactly 9 months from Valentine’s day and all that, just showing I am good at Maths 🙂 not a sly attempt at humor or innuendo. Okay, no more PJs from DJ. God Promise.
We visited several properties, some for the second/third time and tried to get good commercials. Convinced that the hotel would give us better pricing given the fact that we were giving them more room nights due to our new format of a 6 day event, we were rather surprised that prices were going north, when we received the first offer.
Now the first rule of negotiations is to flatly refuse the first offer made.
This was made amply clear to me by my former manager and Mentor, Mr. Uday Singh, an impossibly brilliant and skilled negotiator, years ago. He is from Bihar and a BITS Mesra Alumni.
Keeping within the framework, I proceeded to negotiate with the hotels here at Goa and made gradual progress.
And we were finally able to land a deal (yes, we could have done better) with a property we have come to love given the huge positive feedback provided a good number of people who attended the Goa Carnival last.
yes, It is the Alila Diwa, A Hyatt Property.
This picture tells a story about the resplendent nature of the property.
Surrounded by lush green fields, an infinity pool, large rooms and suites, multiple dining venues, a spa & fitness center, a kids’ club (Of interest to those who are planning to attend the Carnival with their family) and an array of local experiences coupled with bespoke service.
