The visit was with a group of my office colleagues, a part of their reward and recognition programme. The hotel was located off a beautiful beach, pristine and calm. The greenery surrounding the hotel was extremely soothing. The rooms were wonderful and very tastefully furnished. The food an beverages were top-class, as is usual with the Taj Group hotels.

Outstanding Property. Worth a visit though slightly more expensive considering Taj Properties at Goa. Food is very good specially for a vegetarian family like ours. Very hospitable team members. The swimming pool is good. Close access to the sea.

Excellent service from the moment we arrived. Rooms were clean. Breakfast buffet was great. We left before breakfast on morning of our departure and were offered a take away breakfast delivered to our door. Beautiful view of the ocean. Pool area was right on the ocean and so pretty.
