Awesome Honeymoon Trip

Our stay at Taj Vivanta Fort Aguda was awesome as expected. Hotel staff gave us very warm welcome. Since I told them about our honeymoon, they gave us nice ocean front room. The best part was the surprise they had reserved for us. Hotel staff was very very friendly and this property has one of the best spa I have ever been too. I would definitely recommend this hotel to all my friends and if I go back to goa its going to be this property.

High-end resort in Goa

If you are looking for a high-end resort right by the beach with plenty of private/public space to have long walks, then this is it!! Good: 1. Awesome location, you can sip on a nice drink, on a comfy lounge, and watch the sun set over the Bay of Bengal. 2. They have plenty of room choices from a private villa type rooms to beach facing rooms which are a short walk from the beach 3. the staff are really helpful. They have in house taxi service to help arrange short tours to go to places in Goa 4. Free shuttle to/from airport Bad: 1. Food in house is below par and expensive...but there are restaurants short walk from the resort with yummy food at reasonable price 2. The taxi service is a tad expensive, but a convenience nevertheless

Location! Location!! Location!!!

Location: - Vivanta by Taj is located in North Goa right on the water's edge. The view from Lobby/Poolside/most part of the garden is stunning. - We were in a beach facing room with sit out/direct access to garden facing the beach. The additional price was totally worth it. - Vivanta has easy access to beach and all water activities, and has access to viewpoints from where you can enjoy the sunset. - Vivanta is just 15km from Panaji --the main city which has all the major shopping/restaurants--, we took a cab to Panaji and it was good. - Taj has 1 more resort nearby called Taj Holiday, which doesn't have such stunning views --little cheaper-- Note: Vivanta by Taj does not have any private beaches, it only has access to the beach which is publically accessible. But still the beach was in good shape, and not too crowded --especially during weekdays-- Resort Amenities: Not so great. - No free wifi --we are in a star hotel resort in 2013 for crying out loud--. - Food within resort was OK --not great-- - As expected, food was ridiculous priced --easily over 3 times normal price--. Please eat outside, there are several good restaurants within 3km radius of the resort - Cab service was convenient/safe/easy to book/use, we just had to walk to front desk 15mins before we wanted to leave. The travel desk folks were helpful in explaining the places to see and were explicit with the pricing. - As expected, Cab service was very expensive --over 2 times normal price, 28 rupees/km + tax - not including night charges-- - We were recommended a couple of famous south goa white sand beaches --about 90km-- from our resort. We took the cab and felt those beaches were not any better than the one right in front of the resort --5mins walk--. We almost felt the travel desk wanted us to take a long cab trip, so that we end up paying them ridiculous fare :) Restaurants: - Multi-cuisine restaurant --within Vivanta resort, OK taste, expensive, ambience was good. - Seafood restaurant --within Vivanta resort, Not so good, expensive, ambience was good. - Martin's corner --40km from resort, in south Goa, we ate there on our way to the "famous" south Goa beaches, Really good food, reasonable price, OK ambience --well maintained restrooms-- - Earthen oven --around 3km from Resort, walkable, Excellent taste, moderate price, ambience was good - Delhi Darbar --in Panaji 15km from resort, by cab, Food was good, moderate price, ambience was good Overall: - If you are looking for a hassle free/high end/relaxing vacation with stunning views, and won't have sleepless nights over the unfair rates for resort services, then Vivanta by Taj is an awesome choice.

Calm retreat

A great place to stay - especially if you want to get away from it all. Staff was very friendly and the food was great. Loved the food in the Goan specialty restaurant (Beach House). Nice sized pool with a beautiful view of the beach. Would recommend this for any family vacation.

HOLIDAY BEYOND ALL DREAMS

Excellent location. My jaw just dropped when I saw the view as I walked into the hotel. It was "a literally to die for panaromic view" of several beaches, palm trees, fort aguoda, blue skies - we loved it!!! The staff were brillant - they treated you like royalty. Several guests infact commented and shared the same views. We had a lovely room which had a sea facing view with a patio door that led to a private garden area. It was very clean, relaxing and we enjoyed waking up to the sea waves and the view of th beach. Every where you went there was a special scenic view. Relaxing in the swimming pool overlooking the sea and palm trees was just ideal. Also relaxing in the comfortable round sofas at SFX restaurant facing the view of the sea and feeling that breeze was soooo relaxing and theraputic. Free Yoga was excellent - really works! There is also a very nice SPA which is very relaxing. I particularly liked the fact that you can also use the facilities at the next hotel which is TAJ village. You really felt safe as the security was very good. Excellent holiday - best getaway from busy work life schedules. I would recommend anyone to experience this holiday and location - you get what it says on their website!!!! I am looking to go back again.

What a pleasant experience

We are glad that we chose to stay at Fort Aguada. It was such a pleasant experience with 5-star staff they make your convenience their first priority. While deciding for hotels to stay in Goa we were down to Taj Holidays or Taj Fort Aguada. We are glad we chose the later.
