The hotel treats you like royalty, ....it is well spread out with lots of activities for all age groups. We booked this hotel for our stay in Goa.

The hotel tries to give a Goan feel and is quite spreadout ...I think around 54 acres.

The staff is very friendly and hospitable. For the size of the property , I must say the service was super efficient.

Although, the hotel was running full they still made arrangements and place in the restaurants.

The room's are spacious and can do with some sprucing up. The breakfast is good and the distance to the beach from where we were staying was limited. One can do all the differnt kind of sports from Lawn tennis to Golf and Archery, there is enough space and more . Some of the rooms have a private swiming pool ...ours had one too ! With our own private garden and works.

I would love to go back to this hotel and we had a fantastic time !!!

A nice resort for a quite holiday, right on the beach so one gets the benefit of the sea and the pool. Multiple cuisines, ensure you do not get bored with the same food. Live music, sitting at the poolside, enjoying barbeque food, balmy evenings, we had a holiday to remember.

I am writing this review right from the hotel. This is my first stay in this exotica and realised a fact that, if you want to have a real Goa experience, you should stay here! If you are looking for a chilled out environment...this is the place you should be staying! Simply an amazing property... there are so much to do within this hotel! Your entire Goa can be covered within this property as you get to do so much activities...beach wow! Really a amazing one...
This is the property from where you can access all south Goa beaches and places easily. Away from crowded city but closer to Airport also. Food is simply amazing!

Taj Exotica is charming. A Sprawling campus area all of which is beautifully landscaped to appear natural yet attractive. The biggest attraction is the private attached beach with lounging chairs to sun bathe. The hotel has it all - for a price. The architechture is extremely goan and looks natural and very elegant.

The Taj Exotica is an expansive property which has beautiful rooms and you get taken in by the beautiful sunset every evening. The rooms are of the highest quality and you can sink in to the bed and forget about all your worries. The pool lacks a bar like in Taj Village and hence you have to wait a long time in order to get service. In addition, there are frequent power cuts and the location of the hotel has a lot to desire. If you wawnt to enjoy Goa simply for relaxation then this hotel takes the cake, however if you want to enjoy Panjim, Baga etc. then stay at the village.

Always wanted a high end weekend getaway from crazy Bombay(MUMBAI). Could not have had a nicer experince. Came back rejuvenated from the short holiday. The distance from the airport is about 45 mins but once you are there it's a diffrent world since the time you step into the hotel, the staff is super efficient, polite, friendly welcome you warmly. The property is spread over acres of manicured gardens and right on Benaulim Beach far from the maddening crowd. The villa rooms are luxurious, tastefully done with a huge sitout area and a private plunge pool. Needless to say, the various restaurants serve exemplary food from Goan to Italian. Would go back there blindly, "HIGHLY RECOMMENDED."
