“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

I stayed in Vivanta By Taj from 6th May to 9th May 2014 as a part of a business group. Room had a door opening into the garden which made me feel fresh every morning when i woke up. Service was great in the hotel with wide variety menu during all three meals. Hotel staff was very friendly throughout the stay. Renovation was going on in the reception area during my stay but it was so quiet that i didn't even notice it during my check in.
Beach was jsut next to the resort but it would have been better if the resort had a private beach, gives you more privacy.
Candolim beach in itself is very clean beach with a long stretch to walk upon.
Overall nice stay made memorable by taj experience.

Room Tip: Garden view rooms on ground floor are good. Villas are far away from beach & need to go to villa...

We booked this place to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. This resort is situated right next to the very famous Fort Aguada and offers you a breathtaking view of the ocean. Fortunately we’d booked the “superior charm sea facing room with garden sit-out” which had the best view in the hotel. These rooms are also very close to the hotel’s restaurant and the pool, unlike the villas which are perched up at higher altitude. I really enjoyed the occasional quite walks across the resort’s property. It has luscious green landscape which soothes your eyes. The higher end of the resort ground is basically on a cliff and it offers a breathtaking view of the ocean. For a price you can also hike down the cliff. You can also relax on one of the many hammocks or pool beds (that are spread across the resort) and read a book or just take a short nap.

Being a 5 star property the service here is immaculate. Right from the airport pick up to the welcome drinks offered to you by a smiling staff, the service here is simply superb. The check-in was extremely swift and throughout our stay we were always greeted with a smile. The best part was the complementary cake on our anniversary which was presented to us by the hotel staff dressed in local goan style (with guitars in their hands). They played some great tunes as we cut the cake!! Simply Awesome!!

The resort has a pristine pool and all the restaurants offer great food with large potions. The breakfast buffet here is to die for!! The variety they offer you in the buffet is mind-blowing so it’s a must try if you are here.

Already impressed!! Wait till you hear about the awesome beach right next to the resort – the Condolim Beach. This beach is a 5 minutes’ walk from the resort. For me it is undoubtedly the best beach in Goa. Since the beach has 2 Taj resorts (Vivanta by Taj – Holiday Village as well) next to each other you can find many foreigners here. Like any other beaches in Goa this beach has enough shacks and pool beds. All the shacks offers host of sea food and vegetarian delicacies. As it was not a rainy season the beach was filled with water sports enthusiasts. So go on and try the para-sailing, motor-boat scooter, banana ride and a host of other water sport activities. Or just sit back sip your drink and enjoy the beautiful view of the sea.

this place has never disappointed us... i've been coming to this hotel since my college going days and still visit here after almost 15 years... basically they have got a customer for life in me... the service is exceptional, the location is beautiful and convenient... this place is perfect irrespective if you are a single traveler, young couple, couple with kids or even an elderly couple... the staff is soooooo well trained to attend to your personal needs, they make you feel at home away from home... 3 cheers for the entire management and staff!!

We stayed for a long weekend at Vivanta Fort Aguada. It, yet again, proved to be one of our best stays. The Taj property was exceptional, situated right along the sea with the fort boundary marking its own. The main building had a set of rooms while there were also cottages that were dispersed across the property. We stayed in one pf the higher cottages that had a magnificent, uninterrupted view of the sea. Our package included all 3 meals, which at INR 8k was a deal! The coffee shop called Latitude was where we'd our meals and managed to get a sea-facing table most of the times. We also spent an evening at the Mprisco & Martini Bar. The hotel is spread wide & there are complimentary cars to shuttle you from one place to another, including the gym and the spa, which are located outside the campus. The gym is small but well-equipped. The spa, Jiva, was yet again excellent. Throughout our stay, the service was exemplary. Not a single staff member without a smile! The food variety was great and taste was good. I wonder why would anyone want to stay anywhere else!

We spent the best time in Goa during our stay here. This resort offers a great view of the Arabian sea and the remains of the aguada fort. Check in was smooth and we were offered a sea view suite - Premium Indulgence Sea view room.The rooms were spacious and had a balcony with coffee table and sunbath beds with a view of the Arabian sea.The service and staff at this hotel certainly deserve a special mention.They took care of every detail and were prompt.to our surprise, we were told that we could use the adjacent Taj Holiday village resort as well, although holiday village is just 500 mts away, the hotel provides free a/c taxi's which can take you there at any point of time.

There are 7 restaurants serving different cuisines and all were a culinary delight. they serve, continental, sea food, Thai Italian and Goan style food. We experienced all the different cuisines during our stay and all can recommend all. This was my first Taj experience and they didn't disappoint at all.

The only thing missing was serving wet towels to guests,which is usually a practice in all the sea side resorts.since it is humid a cool wet towel at the entrance and in the restrooms would have been refreshing.

Room Tip: Avoid the corner rooms, with balcony open to the public view.

I stayed with my family in end June 2014 for 4 nights. Had an amazing experience. They made us fell very comfortable during our stay and cared for all our needs. The activity centre is well managed and takes nice care of kids. The big bonus is you can visit their neighouring property " the Holiday Village via complementary shuttle cars. The pool bar at Holiday village is good. The food was awesome and the breakfast spread was wide and yummy food. WIFI should be made complimentary as their charges are very high. They upgraded me to a suite on my last day of stay. The front office staff was very courteous. Will definitely go back again.

Stayed with family at Taj Aguada. Checked in on 17th June for 3 nights and took six rooms. Stayed in premium indulgence cottage. Even in June the hotel was sold out. The hotel is situated right on beach. There is a main complex which houses reception, pool, and many restuarants. Some rooms are in main complex too. Behind this are small hills which have cottages. The service and hospitality of Taj is excellent as always. Faced no major issues at all. The rooms are nice though not very new or modern. The best part is that Taj holiday village is next door and the shuttle service is complimentary. Infact, if you have complimentary breakfast, you can have it in any of the 2 properties. The aguada has lot of stairs going up and down, whereas the holiday village is flat. Very nice gardens in aguada. The front office was very accommodating. In room dining is prompt and the food is served hot(it was raining when we got the food).
