Reviewed 8 October 2017

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.

Room Tip: Ask for renovated rooms, they are excellent even if you have to pay extra

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.

I did not live at the property but only attended a conference there for 3 days. The conference area was quite good. not so pleasant at certain areas which are open as the weather was humid and open dinning and stall area was not air conditioned . The fans were not water fans but normal fans. The view of the beach is nice form the lobby. I did not have the time to visit the beach . But they rent bicycles for kids and also the pool area is big with a lot of water sports like frisbee and Volley ball. We had a wine an cheese event in the lobby which was also very well organized. There is a trolley to travel from the main gate to Inside and is available at short notice. The concierge was very helpfull with out luggage even though we were not staying and just attending the conference.It is easy to get a cab from outside just in Case. Cabs are expensive in Goa . So one can also rent a scooter if they inform some one in the Cab area outside. I got a scooter within 15 minutes from a near by owner and riding scooter in the weather of September is quite Awesome. Also in case you forget to have your pool accessories they Can be bought from a store outside at the hotel at convenient price. Dont forget to Bargain. I would definitely try to stay there on my next trip and give a review of the Services of the room as well.

Room Tip: Not so sure as I mentioned I attended 3 full day conference and lunch and evening dinner only at the...

Three days of bliss ... but honestly what ye place and what ye team who manages this set up ... attention to details ... care and concern ... pleasant and hospitable.

We stayed over between 29 Sep-2 Oct ... our kids first visit to Goa ... needless to say the entire experience has made it an everlasting memory for them.

Part of the resort was being renovated ... but it did not hamper us in any way. Despite running full, the entire setup worked effectively to ensure all guests were treated on par and at the required pace.

Thank you for the wonderful time !

I have been to this property before, some parts are under renovation. But the way the whole construction is handled is awe inspiring. Moreover, the hospitality stands out. The folks in the multi cuisine restaurant to the house keeping ... every single people made my stay memorable. Amit in the multi-cuisine restaurant, Deepak in the reception, each and every one whose name I forgot, u guys rock.
If one needs a total relaxation in the lap of nature This is the place.
The newly renovated rooms were great, stayed in 603. Only wish was lack of sea food options in the buffet menu. I am sure many guests would like to savor sea food in goa
