Pousada Tauma
Ranked #16 of 120 Hotels in Calangute
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 October 2011

Pousada Tauma is a wonderful place to relax in Goa. The place is beautiful, rooms are nice and the scenery it's incredible: a lovely swiming pool surronded by spectacular tropical trees all around. But what makes it more special is the service guided by Mathew (will assist in whatever way possible, always smiling!), the incredible food (which is Goan) and most of all Nevile, the owner. Very friendly person whith a love of Goa to be shared, very nice talks and a positive attitude. Recommend the place!

This hotel is truly what you would think of as a boutique hotel. It is intimate, individual, stylish, without being at all ostentatious. The pool is beautiful and the environment provides a needed sanctuary from the madness of Calangute.

Arriving in busy Goa was a bit of a shock, crowded, lots of bikes,cars and foot traffic. What a pleasure to find our hotel. Just off the busy main street in the beach area,totally private. Once you enter the gated area you are in another world. Lush,quiet,and treated royally. The owner , Neville, is available to answer any questions and to insure your stay is more than memorable. Breakfast and dinner are included, the dinner menu is very large and everything we tried was wonderful. Fresh and beautifully prepared meats,fish,fruits, you name it. Neville also has a small beach location, under renovations at the time of uor visit, which he will gladly take you to for an afternoon at the sea shore. We were the only guests for 4 days and had the entire comlex to ourselves.The pool is heaven, the staff terrific and Neville a superior host.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms would be perfect, most have a small patio area, large stting area, large bedroom an...

A delightful experience that we almost missed when our travel agent said that rooms were not available. My suggestion is to initially contact Pousada Tauma directly, by email or telephone to confirm rooms. We were referred to Pousada Tauma by a friend and did not know what to expect and were overwhelmed by the beauty of the property and the friendliness of the staff.


The hotel is hidden away from the busy, touristy, Calangute, our initial thought was that it was too expensive, until we enjoyed our first meal that included prawns for me and lobster masala for my wife and realized their tariff included breakfast and dinner saving us between $70.00 - $80.00 (Euro's) per day on meals.


The service at the hotel was impeccable. Everything that one would need was always attended to immediately. Lounging by the pool or having scrumptious meals at the hotel were highlights of our trip to Goa. My wife and I loved the beautiful gardens (three picture attached), the tranquil swimming pool (two pictures attached), days on their private beach (two pictures attached), beautiful deluxe suite (two pictures attached), being pampered by the Neville (the owner) and his charming, attentive staff.


The Pousada Tauma needs to update its website. The pictures and descriptions are average, but do not do justice to its big and very beautiful tropical gardens including orchids, butterflies, all kind of birds, parrots, a big pond of koi, the hotel is like a paradise in the middle of Calangute.

We stayed at Pousada Tauma for a weekend during the monsoon and despite the showers had a wonderful stay. Pousada Tauma is beautiful, it feels very secluded with beautiful plants and windy paths taking you to different areas of the hotel. The rooms are spacious and clean and feel very private as they are organised into small buildings which are spread out around the grounds.

All of the staff are warm and welcoming, very attentive without ever being intrusive. The food was consistently excellent and we appreciated the lack of rules around breakfast times!

The hotel is perfect if you want somewhere beautiful to relax by the pool, but it is also near enough to Calangute that you can easily venture into town if you want to. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The rooms we saw all looked great
