Hotel's Favourite
5.0 of 5 bubbles
I have visited property with my wife for celebrating, a special occasion of 10th marriage anniversary.

It was an Overwhelming experience.

Taj Gesture..
16th May to 20th May'23, I have booked a superior room and requested for an upgrade room as per the availability , wherein, I was provided a room in the Aguada cottage garden view room, a special thanks to the reservation team.

Warm welcome with musicians singing songs and playing guitar while checking in, and cake in the room for my anniversary, making me and my wife something special
Rooms..
The room was very spacious and comfortable as needed, especially well , including bathtub, shower area, etc., just giving a wow feeling with interiors.

Food..(The Kokum Kitchen)
I have opted with breakfast + 1 major meal plan, wherein food quality was very good at “Kokum Kitchen ”, also variety of food serve was delicious. I have requested for Jain Food, which was well prepared and served.
I would really like to appreciate the team who were keen to serve at the best, Mr. Lokesh, Abhishek, Santan,Mrs. Deepa, and may more…

One can also enjoy food in adjoining property, i.e. holiday village.

Housekeeping..
Housekeeping team was remarkable, noting to complaint.

Amenities..
Large and clean swimming pool located facing beach, giving a beautiful environment, also life guard person Mr. Sanjeev was known in his job and kind in nature.
Kids play zone (Giggles) , was a place where kids can enjoy painting, gaming and sort of indoor activities, where care takers where there to keep eye on kids and play with them if required.
Kids playing zone in Holiday village s bit bigger, you can also explore said area with kids.
Bayview point ...
Awesome point to visit , next to sunset point on the top of hills in resort with beautiful view. Mr. Nanampa care taker was very kind.

Anniversary celebration..
On anniversary day, they made us feel very special, by having cake cutting and musician sing song and guitar playing for us in our room, and small but special candle light arrangement for our dinner. Also room decoration was simply beautiful done by the team.

Pickup and drop..
Ready available pick and drop service from room to lobby and Taj holiday village. Drivers were professional and disciplined, few to name Mr. Pramod...and others

Overall Stay was really memorable, and would love to visit this property again with my family.

Once again, I can say surely, nothing can beat Taj!

A fun-filled celebratory week with our daughter's 1st b'day and our wedding anniversary, our decision to celebrate in Taj Fort Aguada was our best decision. Excellent hospitality, impeccable views from one of the finest property with TAJNESS all around us. A fine range of options even for vegans in the restaurant, spacious brighter rooms, private sitout area, spotless pool with option to enjoy facilities of Taj Village which has even kid pool of 1 Ft deep and a picturesque sunset location within property. They even packed breakfast for all of us at 2 AM was such an unforgettable gesture. Few special mention from our side: Ms Nupur (Guest relationship) for extending the courtesy to make it more memorable with b'day cake, gifts and b'day song played with Mandolin with musician, Mr Rukesh (chef De Partie) for pampering my elder daughter every morning with hand-crafted chocolates and Ms Drona (Housekeeping team) for the decoration and balloons which was a surprise when we returned from the sunset point. Thanks for such an immersed and unparalleled experience, we are short of words to express our gratitude. Please do convey our gestures to your team, looking forward to visit you again..!!!
PS: Strongly recommended for those looking for a memorable GOA experience, a great place to unwind as you relax and be ready to get pampered :)

If you used to 5* hotels this feels like a 4 *
Premium suite does not feel like value for money
Location is at the end of about 8km stretch of sandy beach, which is clean but the local could do more to pick up plastics, like all the big hotels could sponsor litter pickers
There was certainly lack of engagement from top down.
Arrived at 2.30am at hotel, no offer of water or a warm welcome.
Went to restaurant one evening, food had to be reminded three times, beer three times and requested onions which never came, had to ask to warm dahl which took for ever
Breakfast service is ok, not sure about the word “Fresh” in front of juices description
Spoke to receptionist enquiring to book 40-50 rooms for an occasion, she was least bothered gave me a card to email. Hello young lady there is lots of competition in GOA!!
Went to see a villa which is in the hills no sea view
Next door had scream kids and shouting parents could hear them which was annoying
Previously stayed twice at Lella which was fine
Overall Taj was average nothing to wow about

Dear Guest, Greetings of the day! Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback about your recent stay with us. I acknowledge the receipt of your feedback and have shared it with my team for corrective action. Please accept my sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused. I would also like to mention that the beach in front of our Resort is a public beach as all beaches in India. However, we do try our very best to maintain it. Unfortunately, owing to the fact that it is a public beach and the Fort Aguada an ARCHEOLOGICAL SITE, it does attract large number of tourists and is often unmanageable with our resources. The Hotel is in regular consultations with the Tourism authorities to highlight this concern, who have promised to take corrective action. I also acknowledge the receipt of your group enquiry and have requested my colleague Mr. Laxmanrao Phalke - Director of Sales - Taj Fort Aguada Resort & Spa, Goa & Taj Holiday Village Resort & Spa, Goa to get in touch with you on the same. We value your patronage and we look forward to assist you better in the near future. Please do feel free to write to me when you are ready to plan your next trip to Goa, I will be happy to assist with your room reservation and ensure you have a seamless and a memorable stay with us.

We stayed for nine nights, was a second trip first in December 2020.
Excellent location except approach to the beach. Food is excellent and so as the service in restaurant. Find overpriced considering rooms or suites and room service, you pay for location.
Reception on arrival or checkout is very poor it matches with their group hotels Ginger.
The checkout was at 12 noon, I had asked for a hotel car to airport drop at 1.30 pm, was asked to vacate the suite at sharp 12.
Good thing hotel management sent a small beautiful gift through a waiter with no note, did not know whom to thank.
Wanted to thank the from desk manager, he was busy so I could not see him though there were still 4 days for me to check out. No complaints otherwise would have not gone there. I find No One can beat Oberoi hotel services.

Taj Fort Aguada is lovely property connected to the nearby sister hotel Taj Holiday Village. One can interchangeably use the facilities and walk from one to another through the adjoining pristine white sand beach. Sunset at Fort Aguada is also a sight to see. The live music at SFX lounge was heavenly and we lounged there through the night. While the rooms at the front overlooking the sea (Deluxe Room Sea View with Sit out) appear to be more sought after, it can get crowded and they are placed too close for my comfort. We could hear the neighbours talk in the sit-out. I much preferred the rooms farther back (Aguada Cottage Sea View). They have hammocks, balconies, and expansive gardens. From there, we only get a glimpse of the sea but it’s good enough. We saw gorgeous butterflies, birds, and also a snake! I found the food wanting and it could’ve been better. I preferred Taj Holiday Village’s restaurant Caravela. The staff was courteous, and we wanted to especially mention Rishabh from Caravela for attending to our needs. Also, Anima at Taj Aguada was sweet and welcoming. It’s a great place for families or buddies on a trip.

We were welcomed to the property by Anima and a wonderful surprise at our room even as we hummed to Bollywood tunes played by 2 guitarists who welcomed us to the Taj.
We stayed at the premium sea-facing villa that came with a sit-out which was immensely relaxing as we spent hours listening to the waves of the Arabian sea and the sights of life on the beach.
Taj Aguada and its sister property, Holiday Village come with access to facilities at both the places. It is a huge advantage as we got to try many restaurants over both the properties. The breakfast spread at the Caravelo restaurant is much better than the Kokum. We loved the dinners at the Il Camino the Italian restaurant at Taj, Aguada. The food was excellently presented and Chef Nehal personally ensured it excited our taste buds. We loved the service provided by Vincent who was very sweet and welcoming.
Holiday village has a baby pool in addition to the adult pool in case you are traveling with kids.
Listen to live music at SFX in the evenings (you can alternatively relax near the pool or the lounge as well listening to the music). The transfers to and from the airport were very comfortable and prompt.
A couple of positive criticisms...
1. As the property is on the beach, there are several pigeons and crows that can at times disturb your peace and dirty the sit-outs.
2. The bathrooms in the suites are definitely cramped for room.
Overall I must say that the stay was excellent and we are definitely coming back!!!

we checked into Taj Fort Aguada on 8th Jan 2020 for my wife's birthday celebrations. we were alloted room no 403 and told that it was the best room of this resort.
Yess!!! we liked the room very much and the sea view was excellent. But the room was beneath a Banyan tree and there were a lot of fruit droppings and dirt all around.
we requested the Housekeeping to clear the area but all our words went to deaf ears.
nevertheless we were there for holiday and it was my wife's birthday so we didn't want any arguments.

most of the staff was courteous and caring but some were a bit rude!!! i didnt expect this from Taj atlast.

i went to Taj Village Resort on 10th Jan 2020 with my wife and kids for kids play area. after some play i went to sea side view and sat on one of the caravela restaurant chairs on beach side view. At that time there were a few more women sitting there so i thought we might sit for some time and when my wife will join us we will have some food and drinks as it was around 1430 hrs.
But to my surprise and shock the behavour of a female waitress who came to us thereafter was Humiliating.
i was told and i quote" you are not supposed to sit out as the open area is closed for dining and neither can we sit out here. if we need food or drinks we have to sit inside the restaurant" and when i looked at the women sitting on chairs beside us we were told that" since they are sitting since morning so we are serving them since morning, you will only be served inside the restaurant. and you are not allowed to sit here outside."

This was very humiliating,,, i was with my son and i simply walked away without even waiting for my wife to come as i did not want to make her feel embarrassed as i was feeling at that moment.

we went back to our room and relaxed for some time.

These Two incidents were that dark patches i=on our lovely vacation to Goa and At Taj.

First of all I would like to congratulate the entire Team of Taj Fort Agoda Resort Goa who have been incredibly best in these difficult time of Covid 19 situation.
They are taking all the safety precautions required during COVID-19 without compromising on guest experience.
Starting from welcoming till the farewell, it was such an amazing, comfortable and satisfying journey. All concerns and questions on our mind just wiped out with our very first steps. Their big smiles were recognizable even behind masks, controlled but sincere body languages gave us the confidence 

From sanitizing luggage on arrival to daily temperature checks, they make you believe why Taj is always on top of the game even in these difficult Situation .
Have felt so safe during this pandemic.

The entire team went above and beyond to make us feel welcome, all whilst complying with the highest COVID-19 safety standards. It was impressive to see how effortlessly the staff have incorporated masks , gloves , sanitization into their service standards. If you are looking for top notch and safe hotel with excellent food, served with genuine concern then Taj Fort Aguada is the best choice in Goa.

The facilities,service, safety measures, food and everything is top notch. The service is truly amazing, everyone at the hotel was super helpful and friendly,

Special shout out to Mr Aquino Lopes , The Food and Beverage Manager for being exceptionally professional and a stunning Leader , Mr Lopes is simply the best and gives a perfect example of a Great Leader driving a Great Team,
It's because of stars like him who makes Taj even more special .
We were beyond surprised at the above exceptional service and food, that he and his team provided us during our stay.

Joel, Rishabh, Mohit, Chef Mrutyujaya, Garima, Tanmay, Dharma are
few gems from his team who were simply the best and which I remember.
Even the Housekeeping staffs,Front office and the bell desk guys were amazing

And finally I would like to express our sincere gratitude to the leadership team and everyone who gave us such a safe & memorable experience,
And without a doubt ,I can truly recommend Taj Fort Agoda Goa as the Best of the Best destination in Goa

We booked two cottages for 3 nights each in January 2019.

Pick up from the airport and check-in at the resort were smooth. Our cottages were lovely- an enormous room with an attached verandah, and a great luxurious bathroom. Hats off to the housekeeping staff for turning the cottages around in a span of 20 minutes on all days.

The lobby is expansive and offers a gorgeous view of the Arabian Sea and the Fort. We loved the food, drinks and views at SFX- the lounge by the sea.

Guests can also use the nearby Taj Holiday Village amenities and I found their pool to be much better than Fort Aguada's.

Without wasting any time I'd like to explain why this property is a big let down. On the first day we decided to have breakfast buffet at Taj Holiday Village. The restaurant was clearly understaffed and the service poor. The staff kept mixing up orders, no one served water or brought cutlery along with the food. We particularly disliked the food and felt that it had been prepared bland to cater to the needs of foreign guests who were staying at the property. I requested for a dosa at the counter and was bluntly told by the chef, "Waiter ko bolne ka".

The next day, we tried to have breakfast at Fort Aguada's restaurant. We were told that it was packed and that they were setting up the same spread next doors at their Italian restaurant. What followed next was a comedy of errors. This place, too, was severely understaffed. No cutlery, no table numbers, no courtesy and of course, no water!

While the food was better than HV, I have to say that the staff was horrendous! Someone would bring food from the kitchen and ask their colleague which table it was for and would get high decibel responses such as, "Ye baju mei kaali shirt" or "Ye right mei pink aunty". The legend, JRD Tata, must be turning in his grave!
They were out of fruits and I asked if they could bring some more from the kitchen. I was told, "haan ok". After 15 mins of standing next to the counter, I gave up. Disappointed, my mom had to follow the manager around for 10 minutes until they brought more fruits out.

To top it off, I felt that the lobby staff was either over worked or just not in the right mood. Once, I requested for a car at the lobby and was snobbishly told, "You can ask outside".

For those of us who grew up in the 80s and 90s in awe of brands such as Oberoi, Taj & ITC, I was absolutely disappointed with my experience at this property. That charisma and admiration for Taj has faded away and we will be thinking twice before staying at any Taj property again.
