Booked a standard room. Was traveling throughout india on honeymoon. When we told the reception that during check-in, they immediately upgraded us to a villa room with private swimming pool. Showered us with flowers and chocolates. Amazing service and staff. Every person is well trained and greets you with a smile no matter where you go. The property is evergreen, tropical, with so many plants and birds...right on the beach. The smell in the air is clean and fresh. Many restaurants and foods to choose from. Amazing spa and ayurveda center. Lots of free events take place throughout the day. Just forget about any other hotel. Book this one ...it's worth the money.

Room Tip: pick the rooms with private swimming pool. we swam for hours in privacy...even had dinner in the po...

The Hotel with a vast land on the beach of south Goa to do so many things in the day as well as in the evening also. You can take a room with private pool and open space to enjoy your time. The menu is full of testy food from all type. If you love garden and nature, then this is one of the best destination in Goa. Enjoy the sea with water sports at it's private beach.

After all the most friendly & cooperative staff will give you a feeling of a king of your room & time.

Room Tip: Room with private pool is enjoyable.

Have been to leela Goa, hyatt Goa, intercontinental Goa, but the food and hospitality of taj exotica was far better than others.

Food lovers have to opt for this property in Goa.
One of the cleanest beach of Goa.

We are extremely satisfied with all the products and services at Taj Exotica. We wanted a relaxing and soothing break and what we got was much more than that. Relaxing, Soothing, Beautiful and Serene.

We chose Taj Exotica to celebrate our fourth wedding Anniversary and we were extremely overwhelmed by their staff & services. We booked a Villa with a private Plunge Pool with Sunset view for two. We had a morning flight to Goa with a brief layover at Mumbai; however, due to technical snag our flight got delayed and by the time we reached Goa, we were extremely exhausted. At the Goa Airport, we were picked up by a Taj Taxi. As we sat in the car, the Driver welcomed us with Cold Water and Wet Tissue Wipes. It made us a little comfortable. He then informed us that the journey from Airport to Taj Exotica would be of 40 minutes. However, we did not feel that distance as we were very enchanted by the lush greenery and shockingly colorful houses and buildings. We reached Taj Exotica in 40 minutes. And all our tiredness and headaches just vanished as we entered Taj Exotica’s premises. Firstly, we were greeted by a live Goan Welcome song that had very happy impact on us. Then the staff took care of our luggage and we were taken to their beautiful Lobby where we were given very delicious welcome drinks. We then met their representative “Bhanu” from Guest Services. She was very nice to us. She made so many special arrangements for us to make our stay special and memorable. She greeted my wife with a beautiful bunch of Flowers and then clicked a picture of us. She later gifted us that picture.

By that time, we were in a different world. We had no stress, no headache, and no discomfort at all. We were taken to our room by a Buggi (Club Car). Our room was very comfortable. It was clean, spacious, had all modern amenities and our Pool was more than what we had expected. We enjoyed every bit of it. And there were lots of surprises for us. For an instance, as we entered our room, we found a beautiful cushion with mine and my wife’s name engraved on it. The idea was unique and very classy. And of course, we also got that cushion from Taj Exotica as a gift. Then we were also surprised by our favorite cake which was of course complimentary. And our room was decorated with exotic flowers. On the same day, in the evening, we had another surprise waiting for us. Our Bathtub was filled with rose petals and hot water with milk. That was very soothing and relaxing. And all this was organized by Subin K. Chacko (Guest Service Supervisor) and Bhanu. Subin & Bhanu took care of everything that made our stay very special and memorable. Our special thanks to them.

There are so many activities in this resort. Golf, Lawn Tennis, Archery, Cycling, Table Tennis, Social Dance Classes, Herb Garden Tour, Yoga Classes, Ayurveda, Fish Pond, DVD Library, Shopping Centre and of course swimming pool and the Spa.

We did everything. We also joined their Dance Classes. Kalpita and Vijay were our trainers. They give personal attention to all couples and try really hard to make them understand each and every step. Special thanks to Kalpita and Vijay for our Jive Session.

And now comes the Food part. They have three restaurants with different themes. We dined in Eugenia on all days. They have extensive menu with large variety for both Vegetarian and Non-Vegetarian. And their desert section is just mouth watering. And they have different themes for dinner, which makes the dining experience very interesting. The Staff at the restaurant is very polite and they really love to feed you with their heart. The whole staff was showering personal attention to each guest. Our special thanks to Alston and Sandeep at Eugenia. They were really nice.

We really feel that the Staff and their behavior really made the difference. They are truly an asset of Taj Exotica. We would definitely love to spend our holidays in Taj Exotica again. It’s a perfect 10 on 10 from us.

Room Tip: sea facing room with private plunge pool
