I like to let the excitement and emotions of a trip, especially an India experience, to settle before I write a review. It is what is still fresh in my mind after nearly 3 months that leaves a special mark. The key word for Pousada Tauma is details. It is filled with them. Special little details in the way the...

Pousada Tauma is a magically place in very busy Calangute. It is five star level managed by owner Neville and sons, together with his great professional team. Individually houses/rooms surrounded by one of the most beautiful tropical gardens we have ever seen. The big, at night time beautiful illuminated pool, invites for cooling down in hot Goa. Food was excellent.... More

We were at the the tail end of a two week trip when we landed at Pousada Tauma. First I have to say how much I loved the beginning of our vacation, each destination was an experience in and of itself, from the old colonial boathouse in Karela to the modern private bungalows on the beaches of Goa. That said,... More

Last Sunday, my husband and I decided to go in search of a get-away by the beach where we could spend the day, enjoy well- prepared and well-served fare in peaceful but aesthetic surroundings. Having done our share of research, we selected Pousada by the Beach, right on Calangute. Having received detailed directions from the owner himself, we drove up... More

For more than 25 years I was travelling in India and also I have seen another big part of the word. The last 12 years I have spent my holidays in Goa at POUSADA TAUMA. When you know Calangute with the tourist hustle and bustle you can't believe that one step you will bring in an oasis of peace. It... More

For the third successive year, we have spent some very enjoyable time at Pousada on the Beach - the beach restaurant belonging to the lovely hotel Pousada Tauma in Calangute. The beach restaurant is amazing; it is immediately adjacent to the bustling public beach, but is set back a little. There is a charge, but this can be offset against... More
