Stayed here February 2014. After a whirlwind tour of India, a restful 5 days was in order. The Tauma Pousada is an oasis amidst the frantic streets of Goa. The large rooms are quiet, comfortable and surrounded by lush tropical flora and fauna and all centered around the beautiful pool. The staff anticipated our every need. The manager, Mathew took...

Had a truly wonderful few days at Pousada. This is a piece of paradise caringly created by the most charming owner; Neville. Highly recommended as a great base for exploring this particularly fun area of Goa and especially if you are looking for a stunning hide-away for romance or relaxation. The staff at Pousada are genuinely friendly, attentive and demonstrate... More

Wonderful hotel with great familiar environment. Very good food (typical goan), excelent service (great staff) impecable rooms. Pool area is excellent. They provide support for transportation to beach or local markets. If I'll go back to Goa, definately would love to stay at Pousada again. It's a top choice and I Know I wouldn't regret it.

I highly recommend Pousada Tauma to anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing vacation spot in Goa. Our flight did not arrive until 10 pm. On the way to the hotel, the driver gave us the food menu and told us that in 15 minutes the hotel would be calling to get our dinner selections. It was thoughtful of them... More

We have just returned from our first visit to Goa and stayed at the Pousada Tauma following Tripadvisor reviews. We went from Saturday to Tuesday. We had three lovely rooms around the pool area (2 adults + 4 teenage children). The Pousada Tauma felt instantly like home, we were made very welcome by Neville and his staff. The rooms were... More

Holidaying in Goa two years ago we came across this hidden gem, a restaurant by the beach with facilities to spend the whole day there. All set in exquisite gardens on the edge of Calangute Beach. The restaurant is well furnished with quality teak furniture and a wonderful view out towards the Goan sea. Kevin the Head Chef is a... More
