Lovely property, great service and hospitality. We had checked out of Zuri because of bad experience and the desk at Taj were able to ensure a very smooth transition to their property. The food at Lobster shack is brilliant with highly customized approach. A good breakfast spread and lovely swimming pool

Room Tip: Take one close to the pool

Located on the southwest coast of Goa, overlooking the Arabian sea, this Mediterranean-style 5 star resort is one of the best five star hotels in Goa and has a way of slowing down time to a tranquil tempo. Set amidst fifty-six acres of lush gardens, Taj Exotica is a showcase for relaxation with tropical-inspired design touches, grand architecture, a sun-drenched atrium, wide shady corridors, and flower lined patios for a memorable stay.

The Taj Exotica is subtly divided into the main hotel building with spacious deluxe and luxury rooms and two and four bedroom villas.

hotel is very peaceful, food is amazing, every day the buffet is quite exciting, amazing private beach, pretty clean, staff are very well mannered and too polite, always have a smile on their face, great greenery around the hotel.

however rooms definitely require a modern makeover, one thing which was annoying is that the hotel charges for Wi-Fi and rates are pretty expensive.

over all enjoyed my stay here, facilities are very good, you will not leave the hotel, its pretty pampering to stay within the hotel premises

Room Tip: garden view rooms are more quiet than the beach facing rooms

We stayed at this hotel for a week and from start to finish the staff made everything absolutely perfect.

I totally agree with the other reviews that the hospitality really is first rate.

We enjoyed all of the restaurants and the Lobster Shack had the best Pina Coladas we have tasted in a long time.

Our room had its own plunge pool and hammock which was lovely. The room was clean, bright and we enjoyed coming back after a day by the pool/ beach to a little surprise!

There is plenty to do. Swim, cycle, beach, dvd library....

We also had several spa treatments in the lovely spa and again the staff were very helpful. I would really reccomend the couples massage, it is really romantic and a nice way to spend an afternoon.

The ground were beautifully kept with birds roaming.

If we ever go back to Goa we would not hestitate to book again!

Room Tip: The rooms with the pools are fantastic.

This is a clean, green and truly exotic resort with all the frills and niceties you expect from the 'Taj' group. Located in the South Western coastline and washed by the Arabian Sea, the first thing that comes to mind is 'tranquility'! The pace is slow, much like a relaxing day slipping into an even more relaxing evening.
The resort has a mail building and special deluxe and luxury rooms. For the high end travellers there are a few 2 and 4 room villas. The grand architecture, the lush gardens, the golf course, the Ayurveda centre and the giant outdoor chess board all add to its uniqueness and offer an enviable experience to the guests. I advice the ground floor rooms as they have a garden with a hammock for every guest! The service is top class and the food is truly exotic! A great destination for a family holiday!!

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms with view of the Arabian Sea

We visited with our 2 year old daughter for a weekend and we long to go back. The property is beautiful, the beach is clean and private, the food (SPL mention of the Italian restaurant) is excellent...the best part of the stay was the courteous and accommodating staff... Raheel and Jabeel deserve praise for personalizing a chocolate and a cushion cover upon learning it was our anniversary! This visit has turned me into a Taj loyalist.
