We stayed at Pousada Tauma for 4 nights in early March 2017. From the moment you enter the jungle gardenyou are transported far from the noise of Candolim to a bird filled, green oasis. Neville and Matthew were both welcoming and efficient. Matthew was always on hand to help, organise taxis, crack open a coconut, make strong coffee, and generally...

If you are looking for a quiet place in the chaotic noisy Calangute please open the gate to POUSADA TAUMA. A boutique hotel in very calm and silent setting. Surrounded by tropical trees the few bungalows are arranged around the gorgeous swimming pool. Lovely built rooms, some with separate terrace, are very comfortable. If you have breakfast on your own...

Very Lovely romantic place in north Goa. A boutique hotel in very calm and silent setting, yet all the happening places are easily accessible (not for those who want to stay in flashy 5 Star hotels). Matthew is exceptional in hospitality and leaves no stone unturned to make your stay comfortable. Surrounded by tropical trees, swimming pool right in front...

Once you enter Pousada Tauma you are in a magical, quiet, secluded world with lush vegetation, a beautiful pool and fantastic food and service. Our bungalow had a separate lounge with fridge, bedroom and bathroom and a private seating area outside. The air-conditioning was very effective and there are ceiling fans. Lighting is good. Plentiful bottled water is supplied. Breakfast...

We chose Pousada Tauma after careful research for a precious reunion with our children. We couldn't have found a more wonderful hotel!

I stayed in this paradise for 4 days and not a single bad thing I could say. Owner (Neville), his son (Josh) and all their staffs (one is Michael) are all friendly, accommodating and very respectful.
