“A great Experience”
Reviewed January 24, 2010

The property has Taj stamp everywhere. Great location, private beach, great food, an excellent swimming pool, large aesthetically decorated sea facing rooms and all the facilities expected at a 5-star property.

Whilst this hotel may not have cutting edge design features it is very well equipped and maintained. The service, food, ambiance were first class and we had a very relaxing week stay just before Xmas.
There are plenty of beach shacks on the beach to give alternatives to the hotel meals, and they were excellent and very cheap. The food in the hotel was also very good but obviously more expensive.
Most appreciated touch was complimentary ice cold small bottles of mineral water brought to your sun bed by the pool every hour or so without having to ask for them

The hotel is magnificent and we have never experienced such incredible service before. It was so lovely that it was hard to drag ourselves away from the hotel. The pool is lovely, and well maintained. I amd my friend ejoye the game of vollyball with other visitors.
We stayed there for three days and two night . and all time is just like a dream.

Beach side view is very beutifull. The Spa is out of this world. Restaurants are great. overall value for money.

We arrived a little early and our room (booked via Expedia for one night) wasn't ready so they offered us another (villa) room in the interim. Rather than move us at check in time, they ultimately decided to let us stay in the villa without additional charge (a generous upgrade). We were squeezing in a little beach time between city/business travel and Goa was a nice break from the noise/crowds/pollution in India's cities.

I had read some complaints about the restaurant prices (and maybe as a NY area person I'm desensitized) but I thought the breakfast was a very good value. I also recommend dinner at the seafood restaurant which is a little pricey but excellent. Plus, once you're sitting under the stars beside the Arabian sea eating a delicious meal by candlelight, you will feel it was worth every rupee.
