Pousada Tauma is a true oasis and a unique experience. It is on the edge of Calangute - not everyone's cup-of-tea - but the clever design and lush tropical planting mean that you are totally insulated from the hussle and bustle of the crowds. However this proximity does allow you to sample the fleshpots of the town and then retreat to the peace and calm of this unique hotel.
What Pousada Tauma is not is a run-of-the-mill five star tourist hotel. It does come at a premium price but what you are paying for is exclusivity - only 12 suites, personal service - everyone mentions Matthew, a unique style in both the private and public spaces. The photographs don't do the pool and its surrounds justice - it is just like stepping into paradise.
If you want a big five-star hotel, based on an international template - then you won't find what you are looking for at Pousada Tauma. But if you want something a little unique which gives you time and space to think and reflect - then this is the place.
