Giving it a very positive start at the beginning of the off-season in Goa, which begins in June, the stared hotels across the state have registered a whopping seventy percent occupancy rate which is the highest of all time for the non-peak season. 

Monsoon did not seem to have affected the tourism industry of Goa this time and hotels are showing a very positive trend in occupancy. Especially the stared hotels are doing exceptionally good with an occupancy rate of 70 to 80% at the beginning of the June month.

Post pandemic scenario in this tiny state surprised everyone with the highest ever occupancy rates with the highest tariffs in the history of the hospitality industry in Goa. The room that was normally sold between 10 thousand to 15 thousand have shot up to 25 to 30 thousand per night but despite of the spike in tariff, the spirit of the vacationers did not dilute down.

Goa did exceptionally well after the life came back to normal in the state following the lifting of all sorts of bans as the cases kept going down and even the monsoon did not seems to have affected the hospitality sector. 

According to the reports, after receiving a very positive response in the month of June the prospects for the coming months look very bright. Normally the hotel booking rates go down below 50% percent during the off-season but this time trend appears to have changed as the footfalls have started increasing instead of the other way around. 

The stakeholder of the hospitality industry is feeling very positive about the future since this trend was nonexistent even during the pre-pandemic period. “The occupancy rate was never so good even during the pre-pandemic period,” said the GCCI president Ralph De Souza adding, that bookings have been very encouraging this time. “Bookings have broken all the previous records and the 70% occupancy during the monsoon is very good.”

According to Mr. Ralph, The summer hasn’t been over yet in northern parts of India and people still prefer to travel to Goa. “The off-season room tariff is probably encouraging the tourists to visit Goa. The other reason for Goa witnessing a rise in footfalls is because Southeast destinations – where Indian tourists are known to flock – are yet to fully open up for travelers.

Goa was the only state that was opened up even during the covid time and after the Covid cases have gone down substantially, this tiny state has become the most preferred destination as other states in India have not yet opened their boundaries for the tourists.
