Really enjoyed our stay at this hotel, the staff are very welcoming and always helpful. We had a deluxe room in a block of four which had all the amenities you would expect for a five star property, the walls are thin though so you can hear your neighbors walking around and arguing! So if you are a light sleeper...

My wife and I chose the Taj Exotica for our honeymoon. Once we got there, we were absolutely blown away by the hospitality. Our room (Sunset Villa with Plunge Pool) was gorgeous. Everyone at the Taj was so kind, polite, courteous and professional. They went above and beyond to make our stay memorable and it really was! The food was...

For my 2nd stay at Taj Exotica i had 2 bad problems : the first was a cloaca smell in the bathroom and it's unacceptable in any hotel and more than everywhere in a 5 stars expensive hotel. This problem has been reported to the hotel. The second one occurs at the Spa : i discussed with a manager and...

Taj Exotica is also the perfect location for social dos, conferences and business meetings. Our Ballroom, one of the largest pillarless banquet halls in Goa at 4,600 square feet (427 sq m), is ideal for romantic destination weddings

We stayed for 2 weeks at the end of November, 2weeks of continuous sunshine and temperatures of 35 every day. The hotel must be one of the best in the world. The facilities are second to none, we had a room in the main building which must have been recently refurbished, the bed was large and comfortable, the bathroom well...

It's always great coming back to the Exotica... their staff is warm and friendly and they remember each request you have ever had! They welcome us with custom made surprises and the fact that it's DOG FRIENDLY and fabulously LUXURIOUS makes it the perfect vacay spot!

The local Goan cuisine restaurant is really really brilliant. The hotel is spread out and provides optimum privacy and serenity. A perfect place if you wish to disconnect for a few days, from routine.

Stayed for a week in August with a large family group of around 18 (adults & children), spread between several pool villas. One of our party was a Taj 'Chambers' member, so we were expecting great things. We had a lovely trip overall but there were quite a few 'missed beats' in the experience. The location is great and the...

We stayed here in November 2016. This hotel is a large and old building set in stunning grounds beside a quite beautiful beach. It also has a number of bungalows and rooms in the grounds, some with their own pools. During the peak season it is VERY expensive and as such in this country I would expect high standards. These...

I can recommend very highly this hotel . Everything is perfect and the staff and the surrounding are excellent. Garden, beach, etc. are I must say the best in South Goa. During the season the tourists will enjoy the shack on the beach which is a must during the day or Sunset for a cocktail and dinner. You can select...
