First class, attentive, caring staff in a calm hassle free atmosphere. We had a refurbished room with an en suite to luxuriate in. Food to die for but, if hard up, go to the beach restaurants next to the hotel's beach - 'Sun and Moon' & 'Joecons'. Go for the half board deal through a travel company as I couldn't...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 24 January 2017

The Taj is a joy to stay in, it may sound corny but the reviews that refer to it as a paradise are absolutely correct. The massive grounds are wonderfully maintained and a delight to walk through, the small nine hole golf course is beautiful and a great joy to go around. The hotel website makes little of the easy...

The Best Hotel in Goa to stay . Very peaceful and the staff are very humble and respectful. The beach was beautiful and we stayed in the room overlooking the sea view. The hotel is around 30 mins away from Airport. The breakfast is one of the best you can have. Will definitely visit again and highly recommend as one...

We (3 adults, 1 child) stayed three nights in the main building Luxury Suite. We arrived very late at night, but were still greeted with the full experience (fresh drink, necklaces, etc). The room was phenomenal! Plenty of space in the separate living area to accommodate a rollaway, with the added luxury of a washroom off the living area. The...

We have just returned from a marvellous holiday at the Taj, as everyone says, this hotel is fantastic, beautiful gardens, lovely beach and great sea view rooms but the fantastic service from all the employees is what sets this hotel apart. We would especially like to praise Jai Singh our lovely waiter who spoilt us bringing lots of Goan dishes...

This hotel is one of the best we have ever stayed in. The whole design of the property is exceptionally beautiful; the 56 acres of tropical grounds are immaculately maintained; our Premier Villa room with private plunge pool was a joy; but the very best aspect was the fact that ALL the staff were exceptionally welcoming, charming, and could not...

This was our second visit to the Taj Exotica...and the hotel itself is lovely. The staff are friendly and can't do enough for you. The rooms are comfortable and immaculately clean. The only downside is the number of stray dogs on the beach outside the hotel. Don"t get me wrong I love dogs and have two myself. For some reason...

Probably our 9 or 10th visit, most likely our last to Goa. Having said that, the Taj is probably the best hotel in Goa unless you want the opulence of the Leela ( and much higher prices now!! ) The grounds were well kept although not as well as some previous visits. Unfortunately the staff gave us wrong information regarding...
