Enter the Marriott and walk past the spacious lobby with scenic views to the ‘transition lounge’ − Azur. Accessible anytime of the day, it has a concept of a deli and a lounge with snaky bites and coffees with a wide range of cocktails and mocktails to choose from. Plush sofas overlook the Mandovi River and if one has a meeting to get to, there is a table-seating mode as well. WiFi is on request and the coffees are a delight. Get ‘glocal’ and order a cutting chai with sev puri from their chaat menu. A fine selection of wines is available; watch the barman work his magic with the cucumber fenitini. Call for reservations to check on live music acts and live screenings of matches on the large screen.
