First trip to Goa (although much time spent in India). I'd love to say we got lucky, but it was the tripadvisor reviews of Pousada Tauma that had us sold. India's always a bustling, busy country. The town of Calangute is no different, but from the moment you walk through the wonderfully designed and executed iron gates of Pousada Tauma you leave the noise and hustle behind. The property is comprised of several suites (bedroom, living room, bathroom). Furniture is basic and in-tune with the buildings and setting. Very lush, quite and very serene. Even though there were other guests staying at the resort you feel as though you are the only one there. The perfect getaway. In fact after spending time chatting with Neville over dinner (he owns the property and *owns* the guest experience) you feel as though you are staying in someones beautiful private house. We hung out by the pool; we swam; we read on the balcony of our room. I could have stayed for a lifetime. And the restaurant! Amazing food and wonderful, attentive service. I'm already looking forward to my next visit!
