We visited the property in the 2nd week of Jan and can say without hesitation that this is probably one of the best resorts I have stayed in thus far. I have also stayed at the Taj Holiday Village in Goa and if I were asked to distinguish the two, this one stands apart because of superior service standards. The staff is super courteous and always greet you with a smile, and always seem eager to help. We had a 1 year old with us but we felt at no time that we have made a mistake selecting this property for our vacation. We used to ask for customized food for our kid directly after speaking the chef and it would be delivered to our room! We felt absolutely pampered as our needs were taken care of at all times. Would like to make a specific mention of some people here - Mona, Reshma, Macklon, and Vasudev from the front desk + restaurant - they put us to ease immediately with their warm and friendly demeanour.
Special mention of the seafood restaurant Susegado - As a background, I am a eggetarian and have only tasted fish, and am not personally fond of seafood. However, I wanted to try out the fish as I had heard so much about Susegado. I tasted the Pomphret filet and trust me,you will start craving for more. Its so sinfully fresh and awesome! Nityanand from the restaurant was such a delight to talk to.
We went there to celebrate our little one's 1st birthday and the staff surprised us by a personally handwritten note from the hotel manager, a cake and sparkline wine! Thank you so much for that!
We had a very minor exception to the above at the restaurant with one Mr. Amit Rawat. Seemed he was keener to smile to and serve only non-Indians. Was a little rude to us on 2 separate occasions (still dont know why), while he was more than servile to people visiting from abroad. But as this was a minor blip, I don't want to dwell too much on the same.
All in all, there is no doubt that its a beautifully landscaped property. But while the Taj also has such awesome places to stay, its the experience and warmth I suggest you go for. Thank you for making our stay such a memorable one!
