This was our second visit to the Taj exotica . Stayed there for 3 nights with family. Its a very lavish property and is probably the best in India. They charge a premium for the stay but it's worth every bit. All staff members are well trained and go out of their way to cater to your needs. Special thanks to Nanna ji at the restaurant and Bipul Vishal at the front office . Would surely visit again !

We visited Taj Exotica recently (Mar 2018) and were blown away by the experience. Besides the luxurious & sprawling property what really stood out for us was the hospitality. The staff went out of their way to make every experience special.

Special mentions for Mansi and Debarati (front desk), Jai (restaurant), Conrad(restaurant) and chef Santosh. Always smiling, eager to help and all of them went out of their way to delight us.

We had read reviews about the Garden villa room (non renovated) not being up to the mark, however found the room to be very comfortable with a lot of character and old world charm. We also experienced the newly renovated sea view room at the main hotel building as Mansi was kind enough to upgrade us.

The breakfast spread was top notch and the Lobster shack by the sea is mesmerising. Lots to do for the kids, the activity centre kept them busy through the day,giving us much needed timeout to laze around the pool and gardens.

We spent 5 days at Exotica and didn't step out once ! We didn't need to .....

We have an annual holiday round about February to escape the English winter and our top priorities are sunshine, warmth, comfort, food and the Taj Exotica satisfied on all counts. Set amidst 56 acres of lush greenery, facing the Arabian Sea, it oozes total relaxation. The sun loungers, strategically placed under Palm Trees and Sunshades, invite you to lie back and relax with a good book or just sunbathe. There is a cool sea breeze and all is peace and calm around.
Our villa is spacious and comfortable: the bed huge and very comfortable, the AC quiet and efficient, and a power shower with a never-ending supply of hot water, all contributing to a feeling of home-from-home. The villa is serviced twice daily by two smiling and efficient teams, only too happy to be of service.
One of the highlights of our holiday was the food which was consistently of a high standard and ranged from very tasty to delicious. The Head Chef and Sous Chef, Manish Sharma, would come and talk to us to get our feedback and were visibly delighted when we enthused about their cooking.
Hospitality was clearly of paramount importance at the Hotel - one felt that one was the guest of a very gracious host in a palatial, beautiful home. The Waiters were particularly attentive and courteous. There are too many to name but a few come to mind - Nitin and Conrad, who completely overwhelmed us with their thoughtfulness when they treated us to our bottle of wine at our last dinner with them. Joyston and Umesh, anticipating our every need; Sanford with his advice on healthy diets and serving my green tea with honey and lime which improved the taste. To all of you, thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.
I had a complimentary appointment with the Ayurveda doctor who gave me some useful advice. He presided over an excellent Spa where I had one of the best massages ever - a 60-minute Deep Tissue Massage by Penny who was brilliant (no pain no gain comes to mind!). There were complimentary basic Yoga classes before breakfast but I paid for one-to-one 90-minute sessions with the Yoga guru, who tailored the classes to my needs and took me through some advanced poses. The sessions were hugely enjoyable and contributed to my flexibility and wellbeing.
If you are feeling energetic,, there are plenty of sports available - tennis, badminton, gold, cricket, croquet and bicycles to cycle round the grounds. There is also a gym to help you lose those calories! Alternatively, you could walk along the beach at sunrise or sunset, which is awesome. If you villa is a distance from the amenities, there are buggies to transport you around.
We were so content that we stayed on site for the entire two weeks and didn't venture out to explore Goa.

Stayed: March 2018

Taj Exotica is located by Goa's powder white sandy beach with glorious views of the sunset on the Arabian sea. We had a huge room, exquisitely furnished and serviced daily by the housekeeping team who left the room in immaculate condition. From our patio doors, we stepped out into the morning sun and then on to the beach. Vincent Ramos, GM and Area Director runs a tight ship and is seen daily walking round the property talking to guests and staff, getting direct feedback. Little wonder that guests make bookings for next years's holiday when they come to the end of their stay. Aubert Pereira

Room Tip: The room on the ground floor with patio and facing the sea is the best.
