We have struggled to find opening words to describe this beautiful boutique hotel situated in Calangute-Goa, beautiful, amazing, perfect are just some words that can be used. Anyone concidering visiting Goa must look no further, read no further reviews as this hotel has everything a guest could possibly want and a lot more you probably have yet to experience.
Its obvious that the very charming owner ''Neville'' has put much thought and effort in developing a paradise oasis for his guests with every little detail covered. The grounds are not only interesting but very well maintained, with daily attendence from cleaning through to gardening and security. The rooms are all separatley themed and a treat for the eyes, they contained everything needed for a comfortable stay and were cleaned every day with a fresh supply of linen, towels and water.
The hotel restaurant was simply divine, cheif Kevin cooked us superb meals everyday, we looked forward to food time! the calamari, their signiture dishes, their squid toast, I can go on and on.....we simply couldnt bring ourselves to want to eat anywhere else than here in the whole of Goa!
One person that needs a special mention is ''Matthew'' our waiter and general person in charge for looking after guests. This gentle well mannered man needs to be clonned and sent to all hotels in the world! we have never been served with such perfection and delicate manner, he wouldn't even raise his voice beyond a certain decibel or tone in fear of disturbing us or the wonderful ambiance the hotel surroundings offer. Matthew made us feel so special with his lovely service, flower arrangements and of course cocktails!
The hotel has recently started to develop a beach guest house which accompanies their private beach and restaurant, which the hotel offer a free shuttle everyday at your leisure. The beach is beautiful and the restaurant divine and the added bonus is you have the sweetest labradore ''Biscuit'' to keep you company everyday, I'm not a fan of dogs but I was quite tearful leaving Biscuit after 3 days, she's quite a character!
Overall, Pousada Tauma is a hotel in a category of its own, its special in every way and that's exacty what the guest feel after spending even a few minutes in the grounds. It has everything a guest could wish for and more. We would highly recommend it and will so to any one going to Goa, we certainly wish to return. Wishing the team every success, keep up the good work!
