We spent 4 nights at Pousada Tauma as part of our honeymoon trip. From the moment we arrived Neville and his team made us feel at home, and catered to our every whim. The resort is an oasis of calm and luxury. Our room was beautiful, and the layout of the pool is great to make you feel like you... More

My husband and I stayed at the hotel for 9 days in March 2015 and had a wonderful time. We ate all of our meals either at the hotel or on the hotel's beach shack which we were shuttled to free of charge by our hosts at any time that suited us. The food was excellent, as was the service... More

Probably like most, I thought of India as a once-in-a-lifetime experience. My husband has been traveling to India for work for 25 years and this past February I finally accompanied him for the first time. After spending our final nights at Pousada Tauma, I know I will be back! Thanks to Neville and his family, Matthew and the entire Pousada... More

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
