Standing in the heart of Vasco Town just 100 m away fromVasco Railway station, very close to the famous Mormugao Harbour, lies the Vasco Residency.
Like other GTDC residencies the AC deluxe suites and other rooms are elegantly furnished and comfortable, but this residency carries the concept a little further with lovely spacious balconies outside most rooms. 64 large, airy and comfortable rooms coupled with a conference hall, make it an ideal business class hotel. This residency is clean and sophisticated from its large, elegant and comfortable lobby to its shiny clean wide corridors, to its really spacious rooms.
Vasco Residency even has an actual single room with one single bed in it. This single bedroom opens into a huge patio outside.
This residency has been built with an eye on comfort. Harried after your business meetings of the day, this is the sanctuary you can escape to. If you need to dash off emails and faxes, there is a business centre in the new wing that is fully equipped with broadband high-speed internet connectivity and at least 10 computers.
A variety of cuisines can be sampled at Little Chef the beautifully designed bar and restaurant. The residency has a large wedding hall and a mini hall. There are AC suites, double rooms, non AC double rooms, two 4-bedded rooms, one 6-bedded room and one single room. All toilets are western-style, elegant and very clean.
This residency is frequented largely by corporate individuals, and those who have business with Goa Shipyard, the Antarctica Centre, various shipping companies and Navy personnel who show a preference for staying here.
With the introduction of early morning flights, air passengers from North Goa and the extreme South of Goa, book into theVasco Residency the night before their departure, so that they can have an excellent night’s sleep and get to the airport in good time for their early morning flight.
