Wife, kid and me just came back from an amazing 4 day trip to Taj Exotica. There is nothing more to a write about this magnificent property than what has been already written here by other fellow reviewers, 54 acres filled with lush greenery, range of resort activities, nice pool and of course the deal sealer the (almost private) beach. Of course the Taj hospitality is in full work at points of interactions, right from checkin to pool to dining, people are always around to help but never intruding in your vacation or time. There are a few beach shacks that have fresh sea food at very reasonable rates, our special shout out to Zumbrai.
We went with our fodors guide and plans to see the city at least for a day or so in the full 4 days, enjoy the sites of Goa but never stepped out of this wonderful resort and the great feeling of doing nothing that it casually rubbed onto us. At times sitting on the hammock we did observe how the surroundings were like our experiences in Cabo or Tahiti or Big Island (and in this case not having to fly that far). So fellow traveller if you want peace, quite and luxury of a do nothing vacation then head over to Taj Exotica, if however you want the crowded beaches and loud music and beach vendors then perhaps you should consider looking elsewhere.
As for us and sights of Goa, perhaps another time, and for this time we will try (yes try) to break away from the enchanting spell of Taj Exotica.
