Impossible to beat!

We've been clients since 2001 and each year it just gets better. The staff at Goa Taj Exotica are absolutely the greatest collective of hotel employees that one could ever wish to meet. Nothing is ever too much trouble and the courtesy that accompanies it is just absolutely top-notch. If you're thinking South Goa then just go ahead and book this place - you will not be disappointed.
