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

I loved the grace and beauty. Staying at Pousada Tauma was a delight. We felt peaceful in the gardens and nourished by the food. Neville and his sons were lovely hosts. As we recollect on our trip to India, staying at Pousada is definitely one of the highlights. My son did not want to leave:)) I'm sure this is the... More

It's a bit hard to describe our 5 days at Pousada Tauma. We really just felt totally at home. The property is serene and gorgeous. The beautiful pool centers the property, and it's so nice to just sit there all day! Neville the owner is amazing - personable, helpful, welcoming, accommodating, the list goes on. He has built this place... More

Tucked in the heart of Calangute... and yet away from all the humdrum and noise that is typical of North Goa.... is this quaint little traveller's delight known as Pousada Tauma. We stayed here during the first week of Oct and simply put, it was a great experience. The resort is spread across 2 acres with 12 suites, each with... More
