Taj Exotica

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We had booked 3 rooms in a villa of 4 rooms, 2 rooms downstairs with 1 upstairs. These rooms are garden facing, beautiful & spacious, with a nice sit out, well appointed washrooms with bathtub. The garden feels private, with audible sound of waves splashing afar. On our last day, the management gave us an complimentary upgradation to sea facing rooms. The sea view is a bit remote, as the distance to sea is not too close. The property is humongous with wide options of activities for all age groups. We were delighted by the complimentary archery classes that we throughly enjoyed & participated with enthusiasm, thanks to our coach. The swimming pool was most delightful, especially as it was raining while we swam. Even though we had rented a car, we hardly felt the need to step out. The beach is well maintained, clean & feels private. The walk to the beach meanders through the beautiful garden, the bridge over duck ponds, beautiful lotus ponds, under the magnolia trees etc. The golf carts were very handy, especially for my aged mom, for driving to the restaurant etc. The breakfast buffet spread was absolutely commendable with huge spread. The hospitality, the warmth, the professionalism of the staff & management is exemplary!!

One of the best Taj properties. Everyone goes out of their way to make you feel special. Amazing family experience and even as a couple this was unreal. Service is exceptional and its private beach is clean and not crowded

We had family get together, so kids ranged from 1 year old to 13 year old and also adults ranging from 30-60. Everyone enjoyed serenity of white sand beach. Also activities suit every age old also food.

If you have not visited Goa as a seaside holiday, then you should try. It is a wonderful place with very interesting, gentle and welcoming people. Taj Exotica resort is fantastic. The staff have obviously been highly trained and anticipate your needs. They build personal relationships with you and are always making sure you are happy and content.

I stayed at the Taj Exotica with my husband and 6 months old daughter. It was my daughter's first vacation, we didnt want to go wring and hence we selected the Taj. Just as expected, it was the best experience. Everything about this place is just perfect. The location, the service, the staff was just superb. Just go for it! Superb. Thanks for making my daughter's first vacation so memorable!

Excellent Hotel, excellent rooms, excellent services, very good food, excellent hospitality, excellent cleanliness, excellent property maintenance, excellent management, attentive staff and excellent everything......

Very good for relaxation and leisure wonderful property though located very far from where the action is once in this hotel you can't go anywhere else The service is top class though I found the food pricey we had Goan food and it was top quality Property right on the beach with great sitting area everywhere Very good if you want solitude and time to yourself

I have stayed at most of the 5star hotels in South Goa (except Leelas and Alila Diwa) and by far this is the best hotel when it comes to hospitality of the staff and customer relations from all the departments at the hotel. First class rooms, amenities, property, and pool. The buffet breakfast was also excellent.

If luxury has to be enjoyed in a hotel. Go to Taj Exotica. You will enjoy the beautiful property with lavish beach. The entire system at the hotel is geared to provide you with an out of the world experience. The staff is extraordinary. They have small nine-hole golf course but to tee-off with sea howling at your back was ethereal. Overall a fabulous experience.

Stayed here some time back with family over a long weekend. The property is spread out over a large area and faces the beach. You can spend all your time inside the resort without needing to step out. Rooms are comfortable and the food is great. What sets the place apart is the service. Outstanding. The pool is well located, and there are bicycles available if you want to ride around the pathways. Good for a relaxed holiday.
