This place blew my mind! Large tropical gardens are exquisite and fresh water pool is refreshing. Plenty of bars and restaurants that serve amazing food, you don't need to leave the complex! Our suite was flawlessly maintained. But it was the staff (all of them) that catered to our every need and made our stay memorable. I thank each and...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 24 January 2017

The Taj is a joy to stay in, it may sound corny but the reviews that refer to it as a paradise are absolutely correct. The massive grounds are wonderfully maintained and a delight to walk through, the small nine hole golf course is beautiful and a great joy to go around. The hotel website makes little of the easy...

We have recently returned from our 17th visit to the Taj. It was even lovelier than before, the upgraded rooms are stunning. Unfortunately after 8 days of our 3 week holiday my husband suffered a serious fall resulting in needing a hip replacement. He ended up on Life support for 48 hours. I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful...

Returning to this hotel after 7 years was like re-visiting an old friend…….. Having been recently renovated, our friend looked different but even better, as she’s now in tip-top condition throughout and as a result, we fell in love with her (and her offerings), all over again!! We were particularly delighted to reacquaint ourselves with the 3 geese (whom we...

We arrived back from the Taj Exotica last Thursday 23rd March and I can quite simply say the two weeks spent at the Taj have been the very best of the countless holidays we've spent in Goa. To date we've been 25/26 times going all the way back to 1995 I wish I'd have known about the Taj then it...

First class, attentive, caring staff in a calm hassle free atmosphere. We had a refurbished room with an en suite to luxuriate in. Food to die for but, if hard up, go to the beach restaurants next to the hotel's beach - 'Sun and Moon' & 'Joecons'. Go for the half board deal through a travel company as I couldn't...

The Best Hotel in Goa to stay . Very peaceful and the staff are very humble and respectful. The beach was beautiful and we stayed in the room overlooking the sea view. The hotel is around 30 mins away from Airport. The breakfast is one of the best you can have. Will definitely visit again and highly recommend as one...

We (3 adults, 1 child) stayed three nights in the main building Luxury Suite. We arrived very late at night, but were still greeted with the full experience (fresh drink, necklaces, etc). The room was phenomenal! Plenty of space in the separate living area to accommodate a rollaway, with the added luxury of a washroom off the living area. The...

We have just returned from a marvellous holiday at the Taj, as everyone says, this hotel is fantastic, beautiful gardens, lovely beach and great sea view rooms but the fantastic service from all the employees is what sets this hotel apart. We would especially like to praise Jai Singh our lovely waiter who spoilt us bringing lots of Goan dishes...
