Good food. It can be the case you can get sick of curries in India very quickly. Therefore it's important to deliver a good variety which we felt they did. The old world charm which has been mentioned I notice in a few positive comments is certainly one of my highlights. Colonial Britishness at its best!!!

The Taj properties across India have been an old favourite with me for many years for their amazing "just like home" hospitality which you don't find at other hotel chains that tend to be very impersonal. I stayed at the Exotica for 3 nights in end April/early May this year and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Rooms: Comfy with an attached...

Perfect destination for relaxing and good food. Staff are friendly and professional. Grounds are well manicured and I enjoyed the complimentary daily Yoga. Fresh fruit juices served everyday at the amazing buffet breakfast which catered for all nationalities.

We chose this resort as we wanted to have some private time. The location is far from what I expected but once you're in the resort you don't really need to go out (unless of course if you have come to see Goa). The food is excellent be it breakfast, lunch or dinner. The beach is private and well kept...

Fabulous gardens, spacious and green. Great location overlooking Arabian Sea. Staff very helpful and attentive. Theirs is no BBC World but English speaking stations from France, Germany, Russia, Japan and Arabiia on TV. The golf course is a joke. It is a total mess.
