Weekly Recap: August 1, 2016

Hello from the Park Hyatt Goa guys! And apologies for making this update a day late!

Yesterday, Ajay and I completed 1 year of taking our wedding vows at this beautiful resort. The perks of being loyal to a property to a fault you asked? They upgraded us all the way to the Presidential Suite. Not just that, they set us up a beautiful surprise from their end, which was very sweet of them. Oh, and they can do a great job bringing a date right into your balcony!
