Hotel's Favorite
7 night stay right in the middle of covid. We drove down from Mumbai to belgaum, stayed for a day and then went straight to Taj Exotica. We had got a great deal at throwaway prices for their pool villa. The drive from Mumbai to Goa was amazing. Except for initial part of of Mumbai, most of the drive was pretty cool. We also drove through a national forest area through Karnataka to Goa where the temperature must have dropped by 5 degrees due to tree cover. Reached the hotel around noon time. Room was spacious with a garden and a plunge pool. Our son is a water being and spends a lot of time in the pool, so the pool was kind of a necessity. In our previous trip to Taj exotica pre refurbishment era, we had stayed in garden villa room. Currently the main pool was closed and there were limited activities we could do due to covid restrictions. We also did a few trips to North goa and also visited a few bakeries and restaurants. Taj exotica is overall a good property but the main restaurant gets a little crowded during breakfast and staff would struggle to keep up with the orders. Food was amazing as always but orders were getting a little delayed. Have always been a fan of Taj resorts and this was one of the best vacations we had. PP ratings Overall experience 4.5/5 Room 4.5/5 Food 4/5 Service 4/5 Value for money 5/5 ( due to covid prices)

Best place to visit for a holiday. Very relaxing and peaceful. Complex is safe and secure. Very good choice of food at breakfast. Staff are very attentive to customers. 30 to 40 minutes drive from Airport. We got upgraded to the Premium room.

It’s just been my second day, and I’m here for six nights; and I’m so apprehensive how am I going to undergo this torture. The service is totally abysmal and entirely unprofessional.. It’s been my second night at the bar. The music was outstanding but the serving staff is absolutely clueless.. They’re bringing Campari in a whiskey glass.,! And tonight I ordered a snack and it refused to turn up for an hour. There is no professional bar tender And breakfast there are queues for tables as if you’re staying at a coffee house. Would strongly advise to stay away from this pricey oasis of incompetence

The freshness of nature is very valid here and you will not go wrong by eating high calories at amazing restaurants. Amazing architecture, ambiance and team, among all the crew, one of the name I would like to mention is Mr Vinay, whom we met many times in the restaurant during our stay. Special thanks to Mr Vinay. Taj Exotica in Goa now in my visit again list and will be back soon in the coming days…

I visit goa nearly every year but this was my first time to Taj Exotica. This was one of the best and finest stays I have experienced. Unmatched service. From airport pick up to check in. Each and every staff at the property makes you feel like home. Pictures don’t do justice to the property. We stayed for 3 nights and we enjoyed every bit of our stay. Excellent food, top notch service, everything I asked for in the room, lots of activities to keep ourselves busy during our stay. Kids had a good time at the kids club. We also took golf lessons which was a unique experience. Special thanks to Shabana and her team at the front desk for ensuring a smooth check in and check out. Big shout out to the chefs and the entire staff and Sala for the impeccable service they provided. Covam was such a great server. We can’t want to come back!

Our stay at Taj Exotica turned out to be the Perfect Family Vacation… we chose this Property so our 3yo Toddler could have fun and we didn’t have to move out anywhere. We were in awe of the Resort, spectacular view of the sea, lush green lawns to walk around, and the beautifully done up Lobby!! What made our stay comfortable and memorable were the small gestures by the staff! The hotel never fails to give attention to the minutest details… On arrival, kids were given colourful Umbrellas which our son didn’t let go off his entire vacation… A very kid friendly property, with Programs like Taj Kids to keep the kids entertained at the play area with numerous activities and outdoor sports!! We would like to Thank Diksha and Inzam for helping us get the best possible Rooms, the view was amazing and an easy access to the Garden so we could hop outside and just play! Vikas at Sala da Pranzo Restaurant was most helpful- making sure we got the meals for our toddler and us just the way he likes! Our son has never had more fun and we will surely be returning again!
