Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 5, 2012

What property, just fabulous, maintained impeccably. Lawns so beautiful with absolute clear blue water flowing down towards the lovely pool.The time spent was worth it. This property is worth in any visitor's itinerary specially during the weekends when it is now open for Breakfast & Lunch for Non Residents (NR's) also. The view of the beach from the lobby is mind blowing. Had breakfast and was worth every penny spend. Huge spread, excellent options, fresh & delicious coupled with extremely courteous & smiling service never allowed us to feel like visitor's. Just extraordinary & for sure the stay at next visit will be there & hope I am sure I will have much more nicer things to say. No wonder it is rated as one of the best hotels across the globe.

Well, tried many places but this was certainly the best..if you are choosy..ready to spend some bucks and are looking for utmost luxury and pampering this is the best place to be...just loved the entire experience, truly the Taj way...no better luxurious spacious beautiful property than this. Perfect for couples and even for families...there is so much to do..cricket, tennis, live chess and what not. It has the most awesome beach of all the places..they had wonderful packages in the month of September and we had a wonderful time..if you are looking for something perfect this is the place you should go to!!!! The best part was the green surroundings, the exceptionally courteous staff (look for Regan on front office, he is brilliant) and the best SPA in the world, don't miss the complete 60 min package!!! worth every penny..exceptional food and restaurants!!! The special performances from 8:00pm to 8:30 pm in the hotel are exceptional. Don't miss them!!!! All i can say is "Wah Taj"

Great service and people. Very caring and friendly. Good food and activities. Less crowd when we were there for some reason but suited us well. Pool is clean and neat as well and could have more pool activities for kids.Tex kids corner is good with nice staff and activities. However things are hurried and kids seem to be under a tight regime rather than a vacation.

Rooms are outdated with old tiles, no carpets etc and not very modern , but comfortable. Pricey as such.

Booked a standard room. Was traveling throughout india on honeymoon. When we told the reception that during check-in, they immediately upgraded us to a villa room with private swimming pool. Showered us with flowers and chocolates. Amazing service and staff. Every person is well trained and greets you with a smile no matter where you go. The property is evergreen, tropical, with so many plants and birds...right on the beach. The smell in the air is clean and fresh. Many restaurants and foods to choose from. Amazing spa and ayurveda center. Lots of free events take place throughout the day. Just forget about any other hotel. Book this one ...it's worth the money.

Room Tip: pick the rooms with private swimming pool. we swam for hours in privacy...even had dinner in the po...

The Hotel with a vast land on the beach of south Goa to do so many things in the day as well as in the evening also. You can take a room with private pool and open space to enjoy your time. The menu is full of testy food from all type. If you love garden and nature, then this is one of the best destination in Goa. Enjoy the sea with water sports at it's private beach.

After all the most friendly & cooperative staff will give you a feeling of a king of your room & time.

Room Tip: Room with private pool is enjoyable.

Have been to leela Goa, hyatt Goa, intercontinental Goa, but the food and hospitality of taj exotica was far better than others.

Food lovers have to opt for this property in Goa.
One of the cleanest beach of Goa.
