Neville and his sons run this beautiful, private property with love and everything they have in them! We felt like we were right at... 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

My husband and I visited Pousada Tauma whilst we were over in India for a friend's wedding. We wanted a place where we could relax after all the hustle and bustle of travelling around India. We decided to treat ourselves and and we are so glad we did. Pousada Tauma truly lives up to its name "resting place" and it... More

We returned to the Pousada beach "shack" this year to realise that they have kept their high level! This place is very neat and run in a very professionnal manner. Food is excellent and the service exceeds every Goan standards by far. Again... highly recommended!

It's all good! The accommodations, the food, the service, the beach, and most important the people. Neville, Matthew, Kevin and the rest of the Crew are exceptional hosts. If you are looking for a special boutique hotel in Goa you can't go wrong choosing this one. One note: when planing our vacation we asked our agent (A&K) to book the... More

Fantastic and delicate resort, the only oasis in the restless Calangute, maximum comfort,Eden garden , refreshing swimming pool ,and..;sweet family atmosphere. The adorable Matthew take care of us better than an English nurse with a baby.. Neville and his family are discretely present and does not know what to do to guess our desires. He is also the original designer... More

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
