I travel in India often and usually stay in Oberoi hotels where it is possible. As Goa sadly lacks an Oberoi I turned to the Taj group. Taj Exotica is all about relaxation. Beautiful beach, although very hard to get a sun bed as so limited in numbers, but a stunning, empty white sand beach. The Lobsteer shack which hovers above the beach is greatbfor fresh grilled fish and to listen to the waves with a cocktail in hand. Food was average for a five star resort hotel, but the hotel excelled with it's staff who were lovely. Particularly the assistant food and beverage manager and Ash in the Lobster Shack. The spa and gym was good and as expected. The pool was nice although a little too warm. We had a private pool with our bedroom which wasn't the best, again very warm and a little dated, saw were the rooms. The Taj group tends to go for more glitzy decor than the stylish more modern Oberoi rooms, really depends on personal taste but decor was not really my taste. Also bedrooms really in need of some updating. However we did have a really lovely relaxed holiday with lots of happy memories of our time at Taj exotica.
