We returned to the Pousada beach "shack" this year to realise that they have kept their high level! This place is very neat and run in a very professionnal manner. Food is excellent and the service exceeds every Goan standards by far. Again... highly recommended!

It's all good! The accommodations, the food, the service, the beach, and most important the people. Neville, Matthew, Kevin and the rest of the Crew are exceptional hosts.

Fantastic and delicate resort, the only oasis in the restless Calangute, maximum comfort,Eden garden , refreshing swimming pool ,and..;sweet family atmosphere. The adorable Matthew take care of us better than an English nurse with a baby.. Neville and his family are discretely present and does not know what to do to guess our desires. He is also the original designer... More

I stayed at Pousada Tauma for 10 days during the Christmas Holidays with my family and my boyfriend. It was like finding a small gem, an oasis, in the midst of all the craziness that is happening in North Goa. Imagine, having a little private slice of Heaven for yourself, a place where serenity and peace overrule the outside noises.... More

It was like you died and entered Paradise! The last time we were in Goa was January 2009 ---- fast forward to December 2014 – almost 9 years later – we were looking for a taste of that “village” feeling, surrounded with lush vegetation, a balcao to listen to the birds and sip coffee, or later in the day, indulge...

My wife and me went to Pousada By The Beach last year in May 2013 and were surprised by the amazing hospitality provided by Neville and his staff. Neville introduced us to his entire staff which made us feel at home. Kevin is a Masterchef and the food prepared by him was amazing. While visiting Goa this year, we made... More
