Recent guest reviews

We visited it during the Ganesh chaturti long weekend. Had gone with my 18 months old daughter. We had an airport pick up from the hotel and as expected the driver was on time and was very courteous. On arrival at the hotel we were given welcome drinks and cold towel, we were promptly checked in! The hotel is spread over a insanely huge area and so they have golf carts to take you can even hire cycles from the hotel. The hotel has activities( dance , cooking, games etc) for kids as well as adults throughout the day ...and it's lot of fun!! The kids club is lovely and so is the outdoor playarea!! My daughter thoroughly enjoyed and so did we!! The food is good and I was provided with infant food every day. It was a great trip and looking forward to visiting it again soon!!

The hotel has exceeded all expectations !!! a very special mention for Ms INDIRA(sales and marketing) CHEF BARSAN Savio,Sidharth, KRISHNA, ROHIT, AKSHAYA, DEEPAK PARASHER, DANIELLE, PASCAL, RAMA, MEGHNA, SANGITA, BIRAJ AND CRESSIDA. sorry if i have missed out names> all my special requests and needs were very well taken care including special dietary requirements. i want to say a big THANK YOU to the management and hotel staff for making my birthday so special and memorable . thank you once again .

Taj has always and always been beyond expectations...fort aguada ..hermitage..village..but our stay in exotica The name itself explains it is Exotic... The courteous staff the hospitality..the cleanliness its satisfies us in all aspects..Goa mean THE TAJ..

Booked a the Taj hotel as supposedly one of the best for customer services. Was originally booking Taj Fort Aguada, but as this was not of the beach decided to book the Exotica which I now realise was a mistake. Directly booked with the hotel a premium villa room only to find out that is consist of three single beds, which differs from the photograph associated with the booking. I requested with the hotel directly to amend this or at least push two of the beds together, but was responded to with refusal by stating that the booking can not be amended. Contacted central reservations to request the same or asked to change the booking to the Taj Fort and again met with refusal. Not exactly the attitude I was expecting from an iconic brand. Staff in such hotels need to understand that customers relations are of more importance to people then the name above the door.

The hotel has exceeded all expectations! Justifies its 5 stars completely. Very friendly staff, delicious and varied food. Service is simply at the highest level !!! I want to say a big thank you to the management and the hotel staff !!!Had the Most amazing stay at this Gem of an Oasis. The staff is incredibly attentive, courteous & kind. Rarely have I felt so much at home form the first moment I arrived. For the restaurant I have to give many more than 5 stars... it feels like you are having dishes made & served with love. Highly recommend this great hotel for anyone looking to have a memory for life from beautiful surroundings that nurture mind, body & soul. Thank You Taj Exotica , hope to return again soon.Amazing resort located in South goa, with chirping birds , smiling flowers and beautiful gardens . Excellent view from each room which have been designed in portugese architecture and furniture . I loved our garden on and our pretty pool . Absolutely Perfect Hotel with Absolutely Perfect staff!!! special thankful to Mansi !!!!!!

I have visited almost every place hotel restaurant in North Goa and i am sure that this is the best hotel to stay in Goa. YES.. its on the expensive side costing 12-18 thousand per night but trust me the stay is much more then that. They serve you one of the best food in this world you one of the best view of sea from your hotel. They offers you seprate rooms , villas as you like to have. You can come here with your family friends group or couple. Situated on the fort aguda road this place is about 140 acres of area offering you everything. For me food is the best. Must visit Value for money.. more than value.

Recently stayed at this beautiful and scenic property. The rooms were fantastic and well appointed. We had a baby with us and the staff went out of the way to accommodate us. They put a crib in our suite and even provided us with baby toiletries. The property itself is beautifully maintained and has a lot to do. We were there for 5 nights and hardly ever left the resort. The food is great and the chefs were very accommodating. A special shout out to the in-room dining team, I have to say they are one of the finest I have encountered. They were ready to bend backward any time of the day or night to accommodate us. The only thing which I find fault with in this property is the lack of ramps and a lift, since we had a baby and a prat it was difficult to keep carry both up and down the stairs. Other than that I will keep coming back to this slice of paradise in Goa.

Awesome! Awesome experience as usual. My fourth trip with family and I must congratulate the entire team, you guys have taken your service to an even higher plane (don't know how that is even possible!). fantastic hospitality by Savio, Amit, Pavan, Somnath from Bar, Navrin who conducted the Tambola game and other staff. Special thanks to Amit for arranging snacks for our return journey, helped a great deal! From the front desk Meghna, cart driver Prasanna, thanks so much for making us feel special and making our stay immensely pleasurable. Couldn't have asked for more!

Family of 4, spent 5 nights last week of September. Haven't written a review in sometime but compelled to come forward and write about this stay. The service was nothing short of phenomenal. This is a notch above any other Taj or other 5 star property I've been to. Salman and Deepak are professional and went the extra mile to make sure we are comfortable. We didn't have to step out in our entire trip, plenty to do at the resort. They have an excellent kids area and again the team managing this went the extra mile to make sure kids are engaged and give parents a break! We did everything from pottery to dance lessons to kite flying. Beach is phenomenal, if you reach early in the morning, you can see the fisherman bring their catch in. This was a memorable experience for all of us. Staff at the buffet dining area stand out. Took exceptional care of the kids. Special mention to Amit Keshari and his team who made us feel truly at home. Kudos to the management to maintain such high standards through out the staff. We'll definitely look to come back.

I went to this hotel with suspicion. It often happens that the service staff in a 5 star hotel puts themselves above customers and shows it in service. But in Taj there is absolutely no such thing! Pleasantly surprised by the English schooling of workers. You understand that these are real 5 stars, as they should be. Everything is perfect there. Spacious rooms, huge territory, a coast with the purest sand, free bicycles, wonderful restaurants. By the way, prices are much lower than in other hotels, which is also pleasantly surprised. We will definitely return to this place.
