“Peaceful and luxurious haven”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

We loved using the beach house - Pousada by the sea - whilst we were at the hotel although there were others using the facility who were not actually staying at the
Pousada Tauma. It is a very quiet way of enjoying the beach, the view and the ambience from a private area which means you are not disturbed by any enthusiastic sellers.
The food is delicious, the area spotless and the service as attentive as in the hotel. We eagerly await the development of the property which is at the entrance to the beach front.

“A haven of peace and tranquility amidst the hustle and bustle of Calangute.”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

What a wonderful place in a fantastic setting. We were made to feel so welcome by Neville and his team. The food was unbelievable we only wished we have found it earlier in the holiday and then we could have experienced the whole delicious menu. A definite five star experience and would not hesitate in recommending this haven to anyone. Cannot wait until we can return - still dreaming of it. Excellent!

“Very relaxing”
Reviewed January 28, 2012

Out of a week spent in Goa, we spent 6 of those days lounging & eating at Pousada by the Beach. The beach is fantastic for swimming but understandably busy. So Pousada by the Beach was the answer for a peaceful & relaxing day at the beach as it's set back & only has a limited number of lounges. Neville & his son Josh made us feel extremely welcome each day & were both very hospitable. The food was delicious & a perfect menu to eat while at the beach. It is slightly more expensive that other huts but the extra money is well worth spending to sit in a peaceful & harmonious environment away from the hordes of tourists on the beach.
