“Peace and beauty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

We started a business trip in India with a two day break in Calangute at the Pousada Taume and couldn't have been happier about it. Neville, Matthew (and Biscuit) were wonderful hosts. We weren't too worried about internet access and found everything to be charming and just what we needed after long flights. The beach property is fabulous - what sunsets. I cannot wait to return, this time as part of a holiday.

We have spent s lovely couple of days at the Psada Tauma a traquil oasis in busy Goa. Luscious garden, lovely cottages, pool. The restaurant is very good and the staff discrete and helpful. Neville the manager can see to all needs including a visit to the best coffee bars. The resort has a private beach with restaurant. A gem, Highly recommended

We took a month vacation in India during March 2012 culminating in a 7 day train journey that over nighted in Goa at the end of the trip. We were ready for some laziness and to just chill out for a few days. The Pousada was perfect. There were no unwanted interruptions. The atmosphere and settings of the main hotel are perfect for a few days of reading, swimming and taking it easy.

The architecture is hugely appealing and if you like plants and gardens you've just found heaven in Goa! Both my wife and I had slight stomach bugs from our adventures prior to the Pousada and we found the menu contained the perfect ingredients to ease our troubled bodies but still excite our palates. We even got an impromptu cooking class so we can continue to eat one of their great dishes in our home.

We used their private beach and found it to be a very relaxing place in the somewhat hectic commercialization that surrounds it. Biscuit (Their Golden Lab.) does a great job of persuading unwanteds from entering, however if you want to get involved in the beach scene and then retreat back to Pousada's haven of beach peace you can.. perfect!

This is one of the best boutique hotels we have ever visited. The owner/manager Neville and his staff, especially Matthew, are suberb caretakers of their guests. The rooms are very nice and the restaurant excellent. The area is an oasis in an otherwise bustling town Calangute. The beach area is very nice and the shiuttle, even if somewhat simple, gets you there quickly. I recommend this to anyone seeking a quiet and restfull recreation resort. We will most definately book here again next time we visit Goa, India. Keep up the good work Neville :-))

I have stayed here with my sister for 3 days. We were amazed by the architecture (designed by a local architect), food, service and especially the hospitality.
We had the best lunch at their private beach. Great food, staffs with warm hearts, amazing beach and weather. one of the staffs came to look for us when we got lost on the beach!

You will see little cute stars lightened up all over the resort at night time.

Great place for people travelling with family, partner or even alone!

I would love to go back soon! thank you :)

It's a good hotel. Services are just fine, Neville makes a great host and the food is excellent. We liked especially the possibility to stay a quit day at the pool side or to go to their nice facility at the beach (we are looking forward when the old building is rebuild and stay some time there). The rooms start to be a bit dated and need a fresh up. Comparing to other hotels, not necessary in Goa, for the price we find there is some room for improvement like Wifi and a better bed. Apart from that, we liked it a lot overall and it was the best hotel we found on our 3 week trip.

We initially stayed here November/December 2010 and had the opportunity to return March 2012. It was lovely to find the same staff, Neville clearly inspires loyalty from his excellent team.
The surroundings of plants, trees and pool area are as fabulous as ever, we arrived after a very busy week exploring the Golden Triangle area and were quite tired so it was a perfect antidote. The Pousada's version of a beach shack(a misnomer if ever there was one!) is a short car ride away, there is always a complementary lift available when you want to go. The food at the beach house is cooked by the chef from the hotel, Kevin who pops there in the day, ably helped by Glynn. There is a lovely area to sit in the sun or shade and this is set back from the direct beach which means you can see the sea but are hidden from the traders who can become annoying. The potential residential building will be stunning when completed and an exclusive add-on to the Pousada, we look forward to seeing it in due course.
