“Just amazing!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2013

We stayed at this wonderfully located at Sea, spread over hilly terrain Taj property in Sept 2013. We opted for spa holiday package for couple.
Excellent hotel with modern rooms (we got upgraded to spacious villa), very nice wide spread breakfast, amazing sea food restaurant - Morisco - caring service with personal attention of chef. Option to use and eat at Taj Holiday Village.
Nice swimming pool with attentive and helping staff.
Wonderful service at Jiva spa!
Much better hotel than portrayed on Internet. You will forget to go out once you check in here.

Taj Vivavnta near Fort aguada, is definitely one of the finest hotels i have visited. Its location is exotic, definitely not a private beach but location is superb. They have their own sunset point. No one can complain about their service. Taj service is excellent. They have separate kids zone and play areas for kids.Huge campus and very beautifully kept and maintained lawns.We were there for Holi vacations and we stayed there for 4 nights and 3 days. We stayed in the cottages. However the main attraction for us was the beach and swlimming pool. Aqua Zorbing and all water sports available at your disposal. Our package included gift vouchers for lunch and dinner. We even had access to the food at Taj Viilage, which is also very beautiful.
Restaurants are themed with Indian and western food. All are poolside located. At nights they have live performing bands.
The day when we returned we still had lot of food coupons. Taj gave us food and goodies for the flight.

Room Tip: Try the cottages or else sea viewing rooms.

We stayed here last year, beautiful location. The hotel itself is located on a fort and you can access the beach within a few steps. You cannot really call it a private beach. Cause its open to public and its tourist spot and u can access the beach through a small gate from d hotel but then they have an adjacent property which is the holiday village and it has a private beach. They provide free shuttles for that. Not very far though... we had opted for a 4 day stay. I must say we dont regret even a single minute of our holiday. Excellent location, beautiful view, quality service (after all its THE TAJ) Amazing food as well, we opted for an all day buffet and I must say they have an excellent assortment when it comes to buffet, nothing repetitive or regretful. All d 4 days were very good on our palate. Planning a visit this year as well, a must stay if ur visiting goa.

Well we all love the Taj don't we? and this one lives up to its promise as always.
Charming, unique and breath taking view! My best part of the hotel is the bar. Just at the edge with Dedon furniture order for the prawn cocktails, beer and a good book and you can spend hours.
Pool is alright not the best and I think its time to upgrade it.

Room Tip: Get a sea view room and on a upper level to enjoy the most of your stay. Also try the southern block...

I have stayed in Deluxe allure suite with my wife and daughter.It was seaview room which have one bedroom,one living area and a balcony.We can see the sea and the beach from the room and balcony.Hotel was spacious and food was excellent.Reception,travel desk and askdesk persons were prompt and efficient.I was a little bit disappointed with restaurant personnels,though.As the hotel was already crowded even in late October,often we had to wait a few times during breakfast,but the lady managing the entrance was not polite,once after she had allotted a table to us,but forgot the same and actually told us to go out when we had already taken food on the plate!
The spa was nice and professional.For the children there were games like pool table,archery,target shooting which was fun.There was an activity area for children also.For those who wants to play tennis/squash you must bring your sports-shoe,as you probably do(I didn't).And being an avid reader myself,I would like if there was a bigger bookshop with more choice of books.

Room Tip: Book seaview rooms,you can see some adventure sports activity also,it may help you to chose what to...

Goa in rains is an experience that many have only recently started to wake up to. Whilst the shacks are firmly shut, water sports nonexistent and the crowds conspicuous by their absence, the green carpet that Nature rolls out following the watery turbulence of Monsoon more than makes up for it. Because its not on the popular tourist map yet, this also is an opportunity to find great deals at starred properties which will otherwise relieve you of your purse rather quickly during season.

Taj Aguada (along with the adjoining Holiday Village) is a great property and a landmark in North Goa. It is built on the ramparts of the old Fort and the centuries old Portuguese construction accentuates the well appointed luxury of the modern resort that has now taken over. Rooms echo with luxury, the swimming pool almost but not quite overlooking the sea is splendid and the many restaurants within the resort will leave your hunger satiated but the senses hankering for more. If you feel like eating outside, there are many restaurants both within walking as well as a short bike ride distance and the popular Calangute-Baga road is also not very far. There’s no beach to speak of at Aguada, but you can get a (free) ride to the neighboring Holiday Village which has a small but lovely beach. Be careful during the rains though for the sea can get very rough and the standing advice is not to get in. Sports facilities at the activity center are quite wide ranging with TT, Squash, Cricket, Tennis and an adequate gym all of which will doubtless keep you completely occupied.

Taj hospitality is well worth the price it comes at. Guests are truly taken care of and with the smorgasbord of activities available, there is never a dull moment. The high ratings on Tripadvisor are an accurate reflection of reality and you would surely come back wishing for more.
