“Don't go by net.... It's much better thn net picture...”
Reviewed 1 July 2012 via mobile

It's a great place for getaway... After seeing on net we were not that happy but it is great. First time I saw a resort which is way better thn its pic on line.

The staff are awsome. We reached morning 7 am and out chen in time was 2pm, the front office with in 15 mins manged to get us a room so we can sleep for couple of hrs. "awsome"

The restaurant staff are very helpful too. The view from their restaurant next to the sea is awsome. The pool is sweet. The greenery is awsome... And lot of place to go for a run or a long walk. If you are tracing with kids they will live it too.

The only thing which is highly dissaponting was their Thai restaurant. It was not thai at all... It was Indian chinese with sea food.( but it was only one meal)

We loved this place.

The holidays we spent there were one of the best of our lives! The hotel was clean, with a great staff and great atmosphere..
I enjoyed the restaurant. There was a good choice of dishes, most of which I had never seen before but my stomach did not seem to mind at all :)
The rooms were cleaned daily and spacious enough for me. In the end, I loved every day of it!

Stayed at Taj Village for 3 days in May that was an off season -The hotel was bustling with domestic tourist....

Positives
-Spacious rooms
-Big resort
-Location
-Big resort

Negatives
-Just another resort cant make out its a Taj Property
-he buffet food(lunch) was very average and monotonous...all the 3 days the food was more or less similar it was an indian fare all the 3 days...
-House keeping -would not change the towels unless its been asked for...

If getting a good discounted deal then can stay here should also check Hyatt and Taj fort Aguada which are in vicinity...

Dear Guest,
Thank you SO MUCH for taking time out to write this review and providing us with valuable feedback. This feedback is of extreme importance to us and acts as the barometer to let us know the areas we need to work on / enhance. I am glad to inform you that our buffet menus have been enhanced since June 15th. We have also reviewed the process of replenishing towels. This certainly is one off aberration from our standards and unacceptable from any Vivanta by Taj hotels. I assure you due attention is being given to every feedback and I am sure you would be able to notice the difference in your next stay with us.

Thanking you once again and looking forward to welcome you back.
Warmest regards,
Sushil

One of the worst and poorly designed taj hotels so far. Can't understand the reason behind designing room which allows no privacy, walls are thin like paper and balcony,s are shared. When you try to book the hotel it will be described as if rooms are heaven but it's Anything but heaven....pls don't select the room especially if you are with family....haven't seen such room in any other taj hotels and wonder why rooms are made like this...to save cost or space. When we checked into the room we found two separate beds even after booking a double bed, least expected from Taj.... Rest is fine....food is also good. Staff as usual is very courteous and friendly but at the end Try any other taj property but this..

Room Tip: Suggest to ask of separate rooms else you room experience is definitely going to spoil...

At the outset, thank you SO much for writing this review. We are grateful to you for appreciating our food, and courtesy and friendliness of our most precious assets, our staff. However, we have carried out a thorough investigation of your experiences and have taken required steps to ensure similar experience is not repeated for any of our guests - our core focus at Taj.

Please let me know if I can be of any assistance to reserve suitable accommodation for you or your guests (for future visits) to ensure they experience what we are known for. Since we do have various types of rooms, cottages and Villas to suite varied requirements, it will be my pleasure to assist you and get the opportunity to reinstate your faith in your favourite Vivanta by Taj.

Very beautiful property. I were there with my family. We booked one villa with 2 rooms. In front of our villa, there is a big outdoor relaxation area. You could peacefully enjoy the sun and spend private time with the family. The restaurant is overlooking the beach and above the sea shore, amazing and breathtaking view! Food is fantastic. Very memorable experience. Will come back and stay again!
