Very comfortable, as Taj always is. This property is close to a number of shopping areas and churches - I was able to walk to most of the places I wanted to visit. Great facilities and wonderful service. Rooftop pool is great for an evening swim and spa facilities are excellent. Very good food at the cafe and in-room dining.... More

Having worked in Mumbai for a few months, I decided to take a break over a long weekend to sample Goa. Being an Aussie, and not having my partner with me, I didn't want any beachside resort, just somewhere central from where I could explore, and Vivanta by Taj - Panaji proved the ideal spot. The location was perfect -... More

Stayed here for a couple of days on business. This is a good business hotel located in the city strictly for the business traveler, not for a resort or beach experience. Good rooms and facilities. Nice breakfast area. The food spread was good but some of the items on the spread was average. They have a healthy food area, which... More

I can't say enough good about this hotel. Maybe it was because we had just come from Hotel Fidalgo in Panaji, where I have stayed at before but seems to have just gone downhill more everytime I'd been there, maybe it was because the Vivanta by Taj was new, clean, modern, trendy, AND 2/3 the price of the Hotel Fidalgo...

Visited Goa for a weekend while on holiday to India. Unfortunately (or fortunately as it ended up) our weekend getaway coincided with both the Goa Carnevale and the India Bike Week. This left us with few places to stay and even fewer that were within our budget. A search on Tripadvisor resulted in us looking at and booking this hotel.... More

First time got a chance to stay at Taj. As expected, the experience was awesome. Rooms very comfortable, with state of the art amenities. Staff very cooperative. Food quality was ok and as a complimentary meal we were provided with a set menu with no variety at all. Fitness centre with all time trainer, Swimming pool and Steam-sauna are the... More

First time in a Taj. And yes, this was IT!!! Travelled to lot of places and seen lot of hotels and I'll grade it in the top bracket. Courtesy wise and behaviour wise also the staff was very helpful and courteous. Rooms are good. Food is good. Swimming pool is also good. Just excellent. Bank for the buck.

We enjoyed our stay of 6 days at the Taj.The Jiva spa was the highlight of our stay.We found the front office staff helpful.But service at the restaurant was a bit tardy ...We were kept waiting to receive our orders! But,would definitely recommend this Taj property.

The rooms are very nice and very comfortable. Service is outstanding for both the hotel staff and the restaurant staff. They are well trained and will do whatever it takes to make your stay or your meal what you want it to be. They are also very accommodating of dietary needs and wants. The hotel is in a good part...
