we booked the hotel through our local travel agent due to the positive reports received & i must say we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. we arrived into goa early in the morning way before check in time but the hotel staff was very helpful & did everything to make us comfortable for the 30mins we couldnt get a room. incredible hospitality to say the least.

our room was amazing & worth every bit of the price tag. cozy romantic & comfortable ambiance there are very few hotel rooms that make u feel that comfortable.

located in south goa away from the hustle bustle n right on the beach the property is beautiful n very well spread. a daily entertainment programme & so much to do on the property we never felt the need to leave it & in our week long stay we left the property only twice although we had a car at our disposal. the spa was rejuvenating & relaxing while the water sports on the beach added a dash of spice to our relaxed week long break.

the food i must say was out of the world fit for an epicure. the local food was finger lickin good n the service was impeccable

the things i liked best ws the service befitting a king & the property is self content,,,,
there were 2 drawbacks
1. poor directions to reach the property
2. no lcd in the room ws a dissappointment as tv in the room ws the outdated old tv

we went to as pre-monsoon package including all the meal. we paid about 300 pounds for two night 3 days. the food was buffet style. i do not normally like buffet, but it was really good. one of the best indian food i had. western food was ok though.

the swimming pool was nice. good for children.

we will go back there again.

Here's a little story....
Two weary travelers, harassed by the management in the Park Hyatt and close to tears, run and place their faith in the Taj Exotica.
Arrive at the gate: The security .... smile!
At the reception: fast efficient and hassle free check in ... smile!
in the room: AC was a problem in the bedroom of the suite... called reception, they sent the engineer, the guest service manger, the housekeeping manager in 2 mins flat... they all had smiles.
Room changed in 5 mins... smiles!
All round the hotel were million dollar smiles. Even if something was not possible each and every member of the staff was tripping over themselves to make it up to you ... all smiling.
We had no idea who to compliment, the waiters, housekeeping, front office, drivers, all were exceptional.
Its very encouraging that the spirit of hospitality is alive and kicking and is not lost like the other newer international chains.
This is a hotel where the staff is happy and in turn, automatically, the guest is Happy!
The food in all restaurants is superb!
On our last day we saw someone, who appeared to be the F&B manager, opening the door for his guys at breakfast and patting each one on their back, good show Sir!
My wife and I would like to thank Savio, Voltar, Sandip, Fema and all others for making our trip truly memorable.
To others who would like advise whether to stay here or not.... you cannot possibly have a bad experience here, this is the stuff hotel legends are about.
My wife and I came back to Mumbai.... smiling!!!!

I went with my friends and stayed in the hotel for 3 days.
We enjoyed a lot in boating and beach stay. Sight seeing in Goa are very very beautiful. I would like to visit it very often. One should visit such places to relax and enjoy.
