Amazing stay and customer service
The rooms were in excellent condition and comfortable. The staff were all attentive and made our stay memorable. Particular mention to Dhiren & Vijay (in restaurant) and Sancino & Sonu (housekeeping). The spa facilities were excellent (great care from Vipin & Frenny)

Very good stay at Taj Exotica
This was our second visit to Taj Exotica Goa. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and had one one of the most relaxing holidays. I would like to call out few individuals who went above and beyond to make our stay memorable: Sala Da Pranzo: Atlee, Abhishek, chef sudaran and Rihan Golf coach Johnson Miguel Arcanjo : Chef Poornima and Flyan Adega Camoens: Nikul Pool bar : Ganesh Front desk : Kartik Jiva spa : Yash and yoga teacher Rakesh Overall we had a fantastic stay. I do have some suggestions for improvement which I observed during our stay: - The dinner buffet was very disappointing. Overall spread, quality and taste was below average. We didn’t like a single dish in the whole buffet. - There needs to be a statue or a small area carved out in the hotel lobby to commemorate Jamshedji Tata. It might be present today and I might have missed this but if not, then request you to consider this suggestion.

Possibly the most amazing place in Goa!
The hotel is absolutely stunning! The staff manage to balance the right level of attentive and friendly without being too much. They are all really smiley and happy with nothing ever being too much trouble. The restaurants are fantastic. Ashwin and his staff at The Lobster Village are great. The food is stunning, so much so, I asked for a couple of recipes! Upstairs in the fine dining restaurant the food is superb and the chef is incredible. My husband spent quite a bit of time in the business centre and once again the staff were very helpful and couldn’t do enough to help. It was great to be able to do yoga in the mornings and the gym was very well equipped. The gardens are maintained superbly by a team of lovely gardeners. We can’t wait to go back!
