“Heavenly! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

We stayed for a long weekend at Vivanta Fort Aguada. It, yet again, proved to be one of our best stays. The Taj property was exceptional, situated right along the sea with the fort boundary marking its own. The main building had a set of rooms while there were also cottages that were dispersed across the property. We stayed in one pf the higher cottages that had a magnificent, uninterrupted view of the sea. Our package included all 3 meals, which at INR 8k was a deal! The coffee shop called Latitude was where we'd our meals and managed to get a sea-facing table most of the times. We also spent an evening at the Mprisco & Martini Bar. The hotel is spread wide & there are complimentary cars to shuttle you from one place to another, including the gym and the spa, which are located outside the campus. The gym is small but well-equipped. The spa, Jiva, was yet again excellent. Throughout our stay, the service was exemplary. Not a single staff member without a smile! The food variety was great and taste was good. I wonder why would anyone want to stay anywhere else!

We spent the best time in Goa during our stay here. This resort offers a great view of the Arabian sea and the remains of the aguada fort. Check in was smooth and we were offered a sea view suite - Premium Indulgence Sea view room.The rooms were spacious and had a balcony with coffee table and sunbath beds with a view of the Arabian sea.The service and staff at this hotel certainly deserve a special mention.They took care of every detail and were prompt.to our surprise, we were told that we could use the adjacent Taj Holiday village resort as well, although holiday village is just 500 mts away, the hotel provides free a/c taxi's which can take you there at any point of time.

There are 7 restaurants serving different cuisines and all were a culinary delight. they serve, continental, sea food, Thai Italian and Goan style food. We experienced all the different cuisines during our stay and all can recommend all. This was my first Taj experience and they didn't disappoint at all.

The only thing missing was serving wet towels to guests,which is usually a practice in all the sea side resorts.since it is humid a cool wet towel at the entrance and in the restrooms would have been refreshing.

Room Tip: Avoid the corner rooms, with balcony open to the public view.

I stayed with my family in end June 2014 for 4 nights. Had an amazing experience. They made us fell very comfortable during our stay and cared for all our needs. The activity centre is well managed and takes nice care of kids. The big bonus is you can visit their neighouring property " the Holiday Village via complementary shuttle cars. The pool bar at Holiday village is good. The food was awesome and the breakfast spread was wide and yummy food. WIFI should be made complimentary as their charges are very high. They upgraded me to a suite on my last day of stay. The front office staff was very courteous. Will definitely go back again.

Stayed with family at Taj Aguada. Checked in on 17th June for 3 nights and took six rooms. Stayed in premium indulgence cottage. Even in June the hotel was sold out. The hotel is situated right on beach. There is a main complex which houses reception, pool, and many restuarants. Some rooms are in main complex too. Behind this are small hills which have cottages. The service and hospitality of Taj is excellent as always. Faced no major issues at all. The rooms are nice though not very new or modern. The best part is that Taj holiday village is next door and the shuttle service is complimentary. Infact, if you have complimentary breakfast, you can have it in any of the 2 properties. The aguada has lot of stairs going up and down, whereas the holiday village is flat. Very nice gardens in aguada. The front office was very accommodating. In room dining is prompt and the food is served hot(it was raining when we got the food).

I stayed with my family at the Taj for 3 nights in June. The rooms have probably the best views in goa with picture perfect views of the sea. The rooms were quite comfortable and the overall property is extremely well maintained. The service is top class. The buffet breakfast is exhaustive and caters to Indian and non-Indian tastes and has traditional indian dishes and continental options. There are multiple restaurants on the property.There is a children's play room to keep kids busy for few hours and the pool is pretty nice.I ordered a cake late in the evening for my wife's bday the next day and a excellent quality cake was delivered to our room on time. On the last day a mosquito bit my kid while she was playing outside and the front desk got us a physician within 5 mins. We also got a complimentary shuttle to the airport. You can also use facilities in the nearby Taj Holiday Village which has additional restaurants. Only 1 area which i felt would have made this even better was that due to the monsoon the adjacent beach was eroded and unuseable. We had to drive to Calangute to get into the beach. Overall an excellent experience and i would visit again.

I stayed here this week and it was a great experience yet again. They have worked on rooms and it never felt that we were here in off-season. The buffet spread was large and the staff was ever smiling and worked relentlessly to make the stay a perfect one.Finally they have replaced the TV sets and now have Sony Bravia LEDs. I also stayed at Leela on this visit and on comparing the two,Taj hospitality has an edge over leela.

The only downside was the dirty beach.

Room Tip: Stayed at the Premium Indulgence sea view room and you can see the sea from every part of the room...
