A memorable vacation

Posted 21 Dec, 2017

Traveled here during the monsoons with family. And like all my previous experience at Taj properties the overall experience was fantastic. We stayed in one of the Luxury Rooms it overlooked the golf course and you could also see the sea in distance. The room was well appointed with a four poster bed, writing desk, a sofa and a sit-out with patio furniture, where you could enjoy the sea breeze, sound of the waves crashing and sip a cup of tea. The room also has a private jaccuzi in the bathroom. The resort has private access to the beach and a golf course, there are lots of options for activities, you can ride a bike around the spread out property, play badminton they even had cricket equipment and a group was actually playing. The staff, as has always been with all Taj properties I have stayed in, is extremely courteous, helpful, well organized and efficient. We also bought all meals plan and enjoyed all three meals for four days stay in the resort. Food is excellent and the buffet spreads present a wide variety of choices and is not repetitive.

Overall it was a good stay

Posted 13 Mar, 2017

I stayed in this hotel in September with my family for holiday for relaxation. The destination was nice and hotel location was convenient. The best way to reach the hotel by cab. The hotel appearance was very well maintained and impressive. The hotel front office people were very prompt and quick. I booked the room online and the room provided was very clean and spacious. The hotel service was on time and very quick. The hotel food was very tasty and available in variety. My private pool villa had a beautiful pool and it was very well maintained. The overall my experience was awesome and I would like to recommend this hotel. The buffet meals were included in my package and it was very nice. All the facilities and activities were available at the hotel such as Gym spa etc. Pick and drop was available at the hotel

Excellent Property

Posted 16 Feb, 2016

Landed at the airport and there was a person from the hotel to organise the pick up. The lady was well versed and within minutes, got the hotel cab. She apologised stating its an 45 minutes drive and I was very much ok for travel for 45 minutes drive. In the car, there were tissues and also water bottles for the refreshment. Driver also greeted us with smile and after around 45 minutes, we reached the Resort In the gate, there was a security check. Although its only for the car. On arrival we were greeted by the security persons & they took care of my luggages. There were 2 guitarists who welcomed us with the music and smile. I was taken to the beautiful lobby area and was provided with a welcome drink. We were made to sit in the couch and lady processed with all the check in procedures. She was smiling too & was very kind. She introduced herself and explained about the property. After all the check in procedure, she gave me a bouquet wishing me for belated b'day wishes (My b'day was on 14/03/89) and she saw this on my driving license which I had provided for the ID proof. I was surprised with the same & was all smiles. This gesture just made my day Then we were taken to our room with Garden View(Room no 507). We were taken thru Golf car. The staff explained us about the resort facilities and the activities on the way. The room was spacious and worth the money spent on this property. It had king size bed, large restroom, balcony with chairs and also LED tv. Free wi-fi as well. What else would you need. Resort has a private beach, which is very clean and neatly maintained. There are towels available which we can collect when we get out to the beach. Also sunloungers are available outside the beach. Swimming pool is also available which was big enough and clean. Although I didn't use it. There are total of 5 restaurants available. As we stayed only for 2 days, didn't get much time to visit the restaurants. Visited one of the restaurant near the pool(not sure of the name), which tasted really good & yummy. Apart from this, there is a Yoga, GYM, Spa available. Checked out after 2 days, which was more smoother than the check in. Settled the bills and the cab was ready to drop us at the airport. Staffs came out to send off us. It was beautiful resort & worth the money spent. The only thing which I felt about improvement is Slow wi-fi and also only maximum of 2 devices are allowed. Apart from it, there is nothing much I can say. Just a perfect place.

Memorable stay in a best property

Posted 30 Oct, 2015

Earlier I stayed here for official purposes and I had promised my wife and son to stay here during the vacation. Must say that this is one of the best property in Goa. Rooms are spacious, well arranged and facing the sea. Restaurants serve variety of authentic cuisines and the sea food was really tasty. Vast compound to roam around, nice pool (though I didn't take a dip), attentive staff and sea side location- all are great. We have that relaxed feeling once we come back to the hotel after sightseeing. The atmosphere here is quiet tranquil and we see very pleasant faces in the lobby, garden, restaurant etc. It was really a memorable stay.

Beautiful & luxurious hotel to stay

Posted 18 Jan, 2016

I had gone there with my 3 friends to enjoy our holidays. I and my friends choose Goa to enjoy the scenic beauty of this awesome place. When we selected this hotel to stay, the things became more beautiful especially due to its location. All the particulars in this hotel is AWESOME starting from rooms, comfortable mattresses, luxurious facilities etc. The swimming pool here is very big. In the relaxed hours we passed time with television having all channels subscribed. The staff here are very punctual and well behaved. The housekeeping service is good too. We friends asked a room on the first floor to enjoy the outer beauty better. The hotel staff immediately arranged such a room for us. Telling about the food, it is little expensive but OK. Well, I will refer all the travellers coming to Goa on any type of holidays, this is a must stay here.

Good food and environment

Posted 12 Jan, 2016

Taj made my Goa holiday fulfilled. I stayed in Taj for 2 days for little holiday with my friends. Environment is very clean and refreshing. I loved the room and service of this hotel. Services are fast and gentle. It is my pleasure that I've stayed in this hotel. It has golf course too. Well I didn't have time for that. I don't think many hotels provide this much facilities with entertainment. I would recommend to my friends about this hotel when they had to stay in Goa. Travellers would love this hotel. This would be the place I am gonna stay if I visit Goa again.
