Check- in was very smooth , the gentleman who welcomed us also gave us a brief orientation of the property , was very sweet and welcoming . We loved our room and big thank you to the housekeeping team for the decoration. (It was my birthday) . We very happy about how quick the shuttle service was . We had a great dinner and we loved the elaborate buffet layout . However breakfast experience wasn’t good enough , the replenishment of the buffet was very slow , staff was not so attentive on the table . For instance there was lamb stew on the buffet which was over and I wanted some for my self the staff got a ‘chicken ‘ stew , which was then a waste . We called for dosa twice on our first day breakfast that never came . Bar had a great ambiance but however what was shocking was that a property like Taj exotica had a pouring brand like blue ribbon for gin where in other not so luxurious properties pour better or even clubs do better . We ordered for a whiskey sour and the menu says the pouring as Jack Daniel but all we got were drinks in black dog , this is scamming your guests and not only for us the other drinks he made were the same . Another experience was with the concierge who transferred my call 5 times after informing her in the second call that I just want her to take the request and not to transfer the call , a basic request of cancellation of our taxi but she denied taking down the information and insisted on transferring to the travel desk , it was highly unprofessional. Extremely sad and disappointing. We expected better . We hope you improve on these points . Rest thank you for your service.

This was a family trip to Goa. We thought that this time we make our stay a little bit more luxurious and comfortable. We finalized our first property as Taj Exotica Goa. Looking at the pictures available online we thought of coming to the hotel. My mom just had her angioplasty done 8 days ago. After arriving at the hotel we were greeted by musicians and the young hotel staff in the lobby. My mom smiled because of the musicians. She felt a joy in her heart after getting a very warm welcome. Navin took care of the check inn process for us. He is quite an impressing young man taking care of the guests. As we checked inn to our rooms we were in for another delight. The rooms were very cozy and my mom and dad's room had a view of the garden. All the three rooms were provided at the ground floor. We ordered in room lunch. Food was sent fast to the room. Food was very amazing except for fish and chips. After having lunch me and my cousins went strolling at the resort. We sat beside the pool having beers. Cheers to Goa. Evening we had dinner at Miguel Arcanjo. I met Ms Shabana at the guest relation. After hearing about my mom she put a bugy in our service at the earliest. She also arranged for bubble bath for us in our respective rooms the next morning. My mama, mami, mom, dad enjoyed the bath tub experience. Thanks Shabana for the wonderful treat. We loved cycling at the property. Breakfast was excellent. Me and my cousins took a golf lesson from Mr. Johnson. He is a wonderful human being and a very good teacher. We would love to come back to learn more golf with him. We had dinner at the restaurant. Butter chicken was amazing and even the chicken biryani too infused with flavours and a great taste. Karaoke night was a very good event organized by the resort. My 60 year old dad loved singing while enjoying the vibe. Night walks by the Lobster village after dinner were mesmerizing. Even sunsets from the property are mesmerizing. Me and my dad took a massage at Jiva Spa. Yash was very well talented with the massaging technique and also in having good conversation during the massage. Our check out was hassle free, all thanks to Shabana and Navin again for a fast check out. We left the hotel with loving memories with us.

We checked-in into Taj Exotica with unplanned booking schedule. But the way Mr. Inzam (Duty Manager) and Ms. Masoom (Front Desk Executive) welcomed us was amazing experience. To add proactively Ms. Masoom created very emotional and memorable moment on my wife's birthday by celebrating it and so well presented. I am very glad with such hospitality and care made feel like family. Apart schedule of day activity which is laid everyday like live music on weekend etc. is also interesting and worth of. I thank each and everyone in TAJ EXOTICA Benaulim, be it the buggie car operators , housekeeping team and restaurant team to make our stay special. I wish good luck and regards to team and keep it up.

There was something lacking and hence can’t say Wah Taaj .. No extra effort to give early check , late check out and in entertaining Epucure Room upgrade voucher .. Breakfast and dinner buffet was too crowded .. So good experience but I have been going to Tak properties in last few years to get pampered ..So there is scope for improvement.. Thanks !

We had lovely stay, enjoyed every bit of it !! We were pampered to the core be it in terms of food being served or various amenities (bathing salts, sun tan lotion etc) kept by HK. Pool and gym staff was courteous and at its best as always. My wife enjoyed her spa therapy which was rather relaxing. Would like to mention few names would made our stay comfortable and wonderful. Chef Ganesh and Barsan's food was a yummy treat for our tummies, to which chef at street food counter only added more to the dinning experience. Thanks to your entire F&B team for a wonderful experience day in an day out. Deepak and his team ensured that everything was spick and span and in place in our room. Special thanks to Abeni (Spa) who did magic and helped my wife in feeling refreshed. Manish from gym helped me soothe my fatigued muscles with stretching and taught a few exercises as well. We felt that barring the band playing on Friday's, your activitiy department needs to pull up their socks , as your other band and DJs are not obliging and go on long break and wrap out by 2145-2200hrs. I found E biking, bikes to be very uncomfortable and over priced for the experience or the lack of experience it offers. Also would like to thank Narmin for being nice as always. Last but not the least a big THANKS to Reagan who as always ensured that we had seamless check in and a wounderful stay. Looking forward to return soon!!

We planned for birthday celebration @ Taj Exotica Goa. A must visit place for nature lovers n for people wanted to spend peaceful time away from busy metropolian life style. Situation at Benaulim Beach, 9hole Golf, Garden. It's completely surrounded by greeny. All staff members are very good n co-operative. A very special thanks to Ms. Masoom (CRM) who helped n guided us throughout our stay. Being my birthday, My room was decorated and a celebration birthday cake was arranged. Ms Masoom suprised us by decorating our room n a celebration birthday cake. A special thanks to Ms Shabana (CRM) for her cooperation and support. We will definitely visit again. Last year, we celebrated our son's birthday in Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai. This year, we will celebrate our son's birthday @ Taj Exotica, Goa. Thanks. Mahesh
