“Dream Holiday, best hotel to relax and rejuvenate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2010

30th Oct 2010 to 3rd Nov 2010

Booked this property as it was located in the happening part of Goa. The drive from the ariport takes an hour but is very scenic. On arrival, the neatly dressed staff welcomes you with a big smile and a welcome card from the manager. Check in took hardly 2-3 minutes.

The moment you step in, you start feeling good about the stay. The room was clean and nicely laid out with crisp white sheets. The view from the room was mesmerising and you could hear the sea splashing against the shore and a cool breeze.

Swimming pool was nice and clean with double bed cots by the pool side which allow you to sunbathe. The restaurants (Multi Cuisine and Italian) had delicious food with a very lavish breakfast spread.

The best part about the stay was that you can access Taj Holiday village as well if you are staying at Fort Aguada (with a free shuttle service from hotel: 2-3 minute drive). There is a kids activity center to keep kids busy and also a great fitness centre with good trainers.

It was my kid's birthday during the stay and the hotel staff kept surprising us through out the day. Started with a cake and flowers at wake up and ended with cake and song at the restaurant. My kid was overjoyed. (Thanks Taj for making it memorable for my kid)

The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable and the hotel even offered free shuttle to nearby restaurants and to Bike hiring outlets (never experienced at any other hotel).

Overall a great place to relax with you family, enjoy great food and relax as much as you can with a very friendly and prompt staff.

Would love to stay there over and over again.

Taj Fort Aguada is the best place to have a business conference and a break as well. The location is exotic and just wonderful. The hotel has got clean and well maintained room with good conferene facility. The staff is warm and freindly.

This is a great property and is close to the Taj Holiday village. While you are at Fort Aguada, you can use the restaurants at both the Taj properties, which makes the stay even more enjoyable. Try the pizzas at the Taj Holiday village coffee shop - really amazing!
Drive up to the top of the property and you have a beautiful view.
Fort Aguada also has some interesting events during the day, which may be of interest to you or your spouse or kids.

Since I was going for a trip first time after my wedding. Since we have travelled a lot in mountains so decided to go to Beaches this time. After lots of research on internet I finally decided to stay at Fort Aguada, Goa.
It is an off season time for Goa, so got a good deal and finally my journey started. With the first entry in the hotel, my wife's first word was WOW!! and another wow when we entered our room. A nice view of Sea from the hotel main gallery and from the room that was Cool... I have taken the room with Private sit out and it is completely worth it to pay extra for the same.
After some time when we were going to open our bag,We came to know that the keys are missing, we gave a call to reception and within 5 mins someone was there to help us, Great Service!!!
One day we decided to do the adventurous activity in the hotel and it was also great, Rappeling and Jummaring. I have done these activity earlier as well, but the location was very beautiful and it is inside the Taj property only.
Only thing I disliked is the Airport transfer facility, as it is shared within Taj village and Fort Aguada which are very close by, but we decided to take our private cab to reach the hotel.

Stayed at Fort/ facing Suite for 4 nights. the facility is fantastic, well managed with very curtioud staff. The meals are great, while facilites at the adjacent Holiday village are mediocre. the SPA was very nice indeed. A must stay, will return soon.

It was our first trip to Goa for a belated honeymoon/anniversary celebration, and the Taj really made it special for us. From the minute we arrived, when we were upgraded to a suite for our entire stay, to the wonderful decorations and specail cake which were gifted to us, we enjoyed the renowned Taj hospitality and service. We were sceptical as vegetarians that we would have any food choices, but found some wonderfult traditional Goan dishes on the menu and had some amazing meals there. The staff was responsive and understanding, and we thoroughly enjoyed the ayurvedic massage at Jiva spa.
