We spent 5 nights here at the start of our two week holiday in India-this was undoubedly the highlight-the service from all the staff was very good-the food the best we ate in Goa and overall the staff made us feel very special-special thanks to Mathew who was always at hand.

The Pousada Tauma is a place of exception : decorated with good taste (Neville, you are definitely an Aesthete !), peaceful, fantastic tropical garden, delicate cooking and an attentive and generous service (Matthew, you are a totally professional Angel !)… The kind of place which stays in your mind as long as you have the priviledge to be there again...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.

Spent 3 wonderful days at this exceptional boutique hotel. Lovely suite with balcony overlooking gardens and excellent pool. Very quiet, delicious food and impeccable service led at all times by the owner, Neville, and his son. They also ran a beach bar and restaurant (5 minutes away) to which they drove you on request.
