We had a wonderful 3 day stay at Taj Exotica Goa. I had a fair idea of the place after reading all the reviews but the kind of hospitality we encountered was unbelievable!!!! The rooms & surroundings are impeccably clean & well maintained. The property itself is so vast….the idea of cycle tracks through the lawns is splendid and well made use of by kids. Beyond the lawns is the isolated beach which one can enjoy without hawkers and other locals around.
We had heard that the food at Taj is not up to the mark especially when one opts for the all meals inclusive plan. But how wrong we were!!!! All the meals whether it was b/fast, lunch or supper was delicious. The spread was predominantly Indian with a fair bit of Continental dishes. And the deserts………how can one do justice to a roomful of deserts of various kinds?? The dining room staff must be complimented for their excellent service ever willing to pamper your culinary senses with the choicest of spreads.
Dining at the Taj is a very expensive proposition so its best to opt for their meals inclusive options. The Travel Desk charges exorbitantly. Hence its advisable to pick up transport outside the hotel at less than half the cost.
After having experienced the Taj hospitality through their helpful & pleasant staff we have already decided to go back next year when the off season discounts come up again.
