We stayed for 2 weeks at the end of November, 2weeks of continuous sunshine and temperatures of 35 every day. The hotel must be one of the best in the world. The facilities are second to none, we had a room in the main building which must have been recently refurbished, the bed was large and comfortable, the bathroom well... More

It's always great coming back to the Exotica... their staff is warm and friendly and they remember each request you have ever had! They welcome us with custom made surprises and the fact that it's DOG FRIENDLY and fabulously LUXURIOUS makes it the perfect vacay spot!

The local Goan cuisine restaurant is really really brilliant. The hotel is spread out and provides optimum privacy and serenity. A perfect place if you wish to disconnect for a few days, from routine.

Stayed for a week in August with a large family group of around 18 (adults & children), spread between several pool villas. One of our party was a Taj 'Chambers' member, so we were expecting great things. We had a lovely trip overall but there were quite a few 'missed beats' in the experience. The location is great and the... More

We stayed here in November 2016. This hotel is a large and old building set in stunning grounds beside a quite beautiful beach. It also has a number of bungalows and rooms in the grounds, some with their own pools. During the peak season it is VERY expensive and as such in this country I would expect high standards. These...

I can recommend very highly this hotel . Everything is perfect and the staff and the surrounding are excellent. Garden, beach, etc. are I must say the best in South Goa. During the season the tourists will enjoy the shack on the beach which is a must during the day or Sunset for a cocktail and dinner. You can select... More
