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 must be said from the outset, the service was impeccable. i have never experienced this type of personal service as i did during my 3 day stay at Pousada Tauma. We got in late in the evening tired & after taking 2 flights & we were told that check-in could be done the next day...what a pleasure! That set... 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

My wife and I are well traveled. In 2014 alone we have flown over 100,000 miles and have stayed at Hilton, Hyatt, Ritz-Carlton, W Hotel, Crown Plaza, Sofitel, Taj, Leela Palace and several other small boutique hotels... so it is with some experience that I will call Pousada Tauma the best experience anywhere. The only other comparable experience was when... More

There are quite a few adorable boutique hotels hidden in Goa but what made this quaint hotel stand out was the privacy and service especially during this first week of October weekend when all the hotels were running to full capacity in Goa, and it was obvious that this hotel is well managed by Neville and team. It was very... More

Spacious setting, luxurious rooms, wonderful and accommodating staff, terrific food. All the staff--including the driver, the chef, the property manager, and the owner--contributed to gracious hospitality. Overall, a superb retreat. Congratulations to Neville for creating such a jewel.

Indeed, an oasis and retreat for an exhausted, world-travelling family. Perfect beginning to our Goan experience. Owner Neville served as our outstanding guide (an excellent and interesting communicator whose family also welcomed us) and driver, who happily shuffled us when we wanted between our wonderful, clean and cozy poolside suite to the resort's beachside restaurant, a key feature to the...

First of all I must apologise to Neville for taking so long to write this review. My husband and I stayed here at the end of March this year. It was our second visit to Calangute but our first time in this hotel. We spent the final few days of our holiday here and it was the perfect end to... More

Stayed here with friends for 4 nights from April 29th 2014. The place is just a gem, a paradise in the midst of busy Calangute area. The suites are all individual, clean and spacy. Really nicely designed. The lush gardens, pavillion are just so colourful and calming. The food was so fantastic. All these coupled with the hospitality and the... More
