Our friends gifted us a weekend stay at the Taj, so we didnt choose the property in that sense. From the word go we were impressed since they offer free airport transfers both ways - making it extremely convenient to go to the hotel.
The location is outstanding - being in north goa close to Baga / calangute beaches which is the hotbed of the shacks, restaurants and now even malls. The taj aguada resort is next door and a sister resort in the sense that you can dine there or use the facilities there. They also offer free transfers between the two resorts!
The property is very spread out and be prepared for long walks. Also the name village is well earned since it does give a rustic feel. There is a 9 hole golf course which makes it very picturesque. Also the pool is fantastic.
We stayed in a sea view cottage - the room was huge, really huge and had a nice lawn outside with a hammock and sea view. The bathroom was great with a big tub. Really rocking.
We only had the breakfast buffet there at their beachside coffee shop which was great food with superb service - they specially got stuff for us even though it wasnt on the menu!
Overall a must visit!

Stayed at Taj Holiday Village in mid March this year over a business conference for 2 days. The rooms are spacious, the decor is smart the staff extremely courteous and prompt. The property is huge and it could take some time to see through the entire hotel. Fort Aguada is next door and they provide a complimentary transfer from one to the other. They have a lot of inhouse activities that one can take part - like kids activities, various fun workshops etc. The food is good and their restaurant 'Caravela' is well stocked. In short, the hotel has a typical "Taj property" feel to it. But the hotel is pricey. The restaurants serves expensive food, which across the road would be available at a fraction of the cost.

With 2 children, 6 & 2, this hotel proved to be a real find. The duplex apartment accomodated us all easily and the features of a flat screen dvd, a separate dressing room and veranda outside all made the holiday a bit more special. The pool facility was clean and a good size, the activity centre a real hit with the kids especially the table football.

The beach was good as with most of Goa on great for swimming but we did go out an see the dolphins which was amazing.

We didn't eat in the hotel with the exception of the fabulous breakfast - what's the point in going all that way to eat westernised food in a hotel! Hot Chilli was good, the Himalayan restaurant was really good. The only one we didn't like was Stonehouse - far too many tatoos in one place. Luch consisted of a trip to the beach shacks.

The only down side was that we really preffered South Goa, it was far less commercialised and the food was cheaper and less steak and chips! and the beach shacks were more plentiful, but I would go back to this hotel.

Taj Holiday Village (or THV as it is usually known around) is an excellent property of Taj.

A lot of activities to do - para sailing, para gliding, water sports.

A nice neat and recent Taj Hotel in Goa, value for money if you book at the hotel's own site (google to get the latest links) - realised after the stay!!

An adjacent property is Fort Aguada (again a Taj property - adjacent to THV - but more opulent and expensive) - If you have the money do consider splitting your stay between THV and Fort Aguada.

Best to start with THV for say 4-5 days and spend the last 2 days at Fort Aguada - being pampered royally - TAJ warmth in a sea facing cottage :) - Okay so you get the picture dont you!

A great place to stay and take a break from hectic life. Enjoy!

Stayed: January 2006
