An exceptional place to stay...beautiful location, friendly service, food outstanding (my wife is vegetarian and so the Taj offers plenty of options). We had a couple of private dinners which are highly recommended...for that special occasion dine at the ocean pavilion, it is a once in a lifetime dining experience. We will be back!!
