I stayed in this paradise for 4 days and not a single bad thing I could say. Owner (Neville), his son (Josh) and all their staffs (one is Michael) are all friendly, accommodating and very respectful. Lovely built rooms, lots of plants in the compound which are very relaxing, chirping birds when you're having your breakfast in their in-house kitchen/resto.... More

My Wife and I decided on a short (4 day) trip to Goa in January and we were blown away by the quality of service, the exceptional food and general luxury of such an amazing boutique hotel. Neville, the owner, has created such a great vibe and ambience, located off the roadside of the buzzing Calangute, as soon as you... More

I stayed here with my husband for a 3 days (too short, I recommend you stay for at least 5!) and it was the most peaceful serene place. Our rooms were awesome, situated conveniently near the the gorgeous free-form pool which had... More

Having stayed at Pousada Tauma multiple times I come away more impressed with every visit. So often people in hotels seem to have forgotten what it means to be hospitable. Either one is offered faux hospitality as a way to increase revenue, or less. This oasis is genuinely welcoming and warm. Walk through the gate and you really won't want... More

We really enjoyed our time at this lovely boutique hotel. Relaxing, beautiful setting in a tropical garden with exotic birds, plants and animals. The welcome from Neville and the service from Matthew all through our week long stay made us feel very special. The rooms were meticulously clean and all week there was a sense that this family run hotel... More

My wife and I spent 4 nights in this beautiful boutique hotel. Quiet! Peaceful! Except for the exotic noises from birds every morning with our coffee overlooking a secret garden setting. The staff was so thoughtful anticipating every need and desire. We loved the food! Freshest ingredients bar none and prepared deliciously. Every day we spent a few hours at... More

Went to Pousada with a group of 20 friends for lunch to celebrate a birthday. We were recommended this place by a friend. It's a wonderful quiet and tranquil shack right on the beach away from the crowd and madness of Goa. The owner Neville is a wonderful host and ready for chirpy conversation and banter. The food is delicious... More

We have not stayed at Pousada Tauma but have had the great pleasure of dining there on several occasions in the past few years. The service is very personal and the food excellent. It has become a 'must' for us when in Goa. It is such a beautiful, tranquil setting, although only a short distance from the centre of very... More
