We were a group of 15 couples with few kids. The experience from airport pickup to check-in was just perfect. The rooms are super spacious with a nice sit out. The staff is very helpful and always willing to go the extra mile to make your stay comfortable. The food served at the banquet was excellent. Had someone from the... More

We had great experience in Taj right from the airport transfers to our weekend stay. There is nothing much you can do outside the resort but plenty of things to keep you busy in the resort. We arrived early and our room was not ready but they graciously accommodated us in the cottage while they readied our rooms. The service... More

We were there on our anniversary in July 2013 at Taj Exotica Goa and the experience was fantastic. Goa being a difficult place for vegetarians but the food here was lovely.

Good resort. Nice view. Food taste is average. No varieties in lunch & dinner. You may see some worms coming in since the place is covered with greenary. Cleaning can be better. If you are a nature lover you would love this place.

Excellent resort! We have spent there 16 days of our Goa vacation in March this year and it was not at all too long. Taj Exotica is beautifully located and well maintained, a peaceful getaway right at a wide sandy beach, ideal for strolling and even for bike riding at low tide. Tranquil, lush tropical gardens surround the villas. Rolling... More

Except the services near pool area where we were hurt ,by rude behaviour by your worker named shobhinath. Other thing, the services at Eugenia restaurant can definitely be better managed e.g. table allotment,services,display. Overall a nice memorable checkout with... More
