This vast Lush green property has beautiful landscaping, well manicured lawn and huge trees. the property has well spaced villas where one can get lot of privacy. the rooms r well designed and very clean. Our room had a pond just outside it with flowers growing in it !!!!! the property has excellent recreational facilities like spa, Ayurvedic centre, golf course, tennis courts, swimming pool etc etc. The kids can hv a great time at the kids activity centre reading books, playing music, learning various types of crafts etc. They hv lots of bicycles and the city kids go crazy zipping around in the beautiful weather. The poolside chaats (Indian snacks) in the evenings r a hit with all age groups. The breakfast buffet variety is excellent. The in room dining experience is great. They hv a lots of buggies/club cars if u do not wish to walk around the property. The beach is clean and the property is bang on the beach. Definitely one of the better leisure hotels.

Room Tip: You can ask for a sea facing room , a room near the swimming pool, near the restaurants , near the r...

Heard a lot about this resort.We were two families staying at Baga and decided to visit this resort specially for our next visits stay at Goa.We drove all the way to this resort.Firstly regarding the entrance.It has a security like a Presidential House.We have to convince them to let us in.They have an automatized steels bar inside the gate.They let us in after convincing them that we wanted to stay in the resort.They searched our vehicle thoroughly.So they have a very good security arrangements.It is protected like a fort.The reception is through a huge high driveway to be greeted by the Durban and the chauffeurs take care of your vehicle.The moment you step into the lobby, its really mesmerizing.Its a huge lobby with sit outs and other facilities.The resort has all the facilities which a 7 star resort has.Its is kept maintained all the time.It was raining heavily but still the maintenance work was going on.The lawns are kept immaculate.We requested the staff to show us the rooms and they make us see the room.The bell boy took us in the electric cart.The room was really spacious and chick.Our kids loved the rooms and were insisting that we should shift immediately to this resort for our remaining days of stay.But it was not practical for us.The resort has a private beach at the backside.This resort is like a dream vacation.We had some snacks at the restaurant which were very good.Our kids took all the sweets provided complimentary at the reception and the reception people were more than obliged.We would love to stay definitely at this stay at our next visit to Goa, even if we have to plan it specially for our visit to Taj Exotica.I would definitely recommend this luxurious resort for some quality luxury vacation.

The first thing that hits you is the sheer size of the property! This place is huge! The grounds have a mini golf course and cricket pitch. There is also a tennis court. Beyond the ground is a pristine, unspoilt beach.

All rooms are villa-style with traditional Goan interiors. Think beds and fitments with the 70s coir-mesh type design. Beautiful! Spread out among perfectly manicured lawns and beautiful lily ponds, this place is a heaven for the tired city soul.

The rooms come with all creature comforts that you might expect - mini bar, large flat-screen LCD TV etc.

The pool is large and the hotel can arrange for sports such as volleyball etc. inside the pool.

The hotel has multiple restaurant options and a spa too.

Breakfast and buffet meals are wide and varied.

All in all, an unforgettable experience!

We stayed at this Taj property for a couple of days in April this year and loved it.

Room-Probably one of the largest rooms I have seen in a luxury property like this. Immaculately maintained. A nice large LCD TV. No complaints here.

Food- We opted for an all meals package. The meals served in the coffee shop buffet were very good. The hotel even lets you eat at the specialty restaurants there and offers you a set meal option at each of these restaurants.

Facilities- The hotel offers everything that you would want from a place like this. A nice pool, poolside bar, spa, golf...the list goes on. Although I didn't get a chance to use the spa, my wife assures me that it was top class. We managed to do some cycling around the property, a little bit of archery and a golf lesson. If you are a tennis enthusiast, they have very nice tennis courts. If you don't have a partner, the hotel offers coaches who will know a few balls/ play a set with you, at very reasonable rates.

The Beach- Not particularly impressive. However, a relatively quiet and clean one.

Service- As expected, the service was outstanding. As we checked out before lunch, we ordered a couple of sandwiches to eat at the airport. The staff simply refused to charge us for it. :)

In conclusion, we had a great time there and are certain to return.

Had a great time with my better half 2 years ago . Thought of righting it now as was writing a few more reviews. Such a beautiful property and the great taj hospitality. Did quite a few activities....rode on bikes around the huge property and right on the beach as well which was awesome. Food was superb and we actually waited to go for the buffet every evening... Had the most chilled out holiday that year. Would definitely return .

We booked a stay to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary in May. Booked ourselves into one of the pool villas. Was the best stay we've ever had at a hotel. The staff, service and property were all excellent. Right from the check in to check out the staff ensured that our stay was truly memorable and treated us like royalty! At checkin we were given a bouquet of flowers and wished a happy annv and then led to the bar were we were offered refreshments on the house while the hassle of checkin was taken care of. We were pleasantly surprised when we were sent a totally edible photo frame with our pic all made of dark choc and a choc cake as compliments from the staff.
The views are amazing too. We requested a late checkout and that wasn't a problem either. Thanks to the Taj we have some great memories of our anniversary and will definitely be booking a stay again soon.
