Bang in the center of Goa’s capital, Panaji, this grand Art Deco–style stay boasts breathtaking views of the Mandovi River and the glittering Arabian Sea beyond. The hotel’s 170 marble- and mahogany-clad rooms are spread out over seven floors. For more space and comfort, book a Deluxe Allure Suite (625 square feet), which has such extras as a separate living room, a walk-in wardrobe and free wine. Take your pick from two top-notch restaurants: Latitude serves Goan and other Indian specialities in a palm-fringed open-plan dining room, while the more formal, marble-lined Tamari offers Chinese, Thai and Japanese cuisine — and a prodigious wine list. Kick back with a Pink Passion (vodka, passion fruit and pomegranate) at the low-lit Tease, or sip a sundowner at the poolside bar overlooking Coco Beach. Round off your stay with an Indian beauty treatment at Jiva Spa.
In the Area
Goa’s cultural diversity and laid-back vibe make it an alluring destination for the seasoned traveler. The famous Goan full moon parties are a thing of the past, but you can still hang with the hippie crowd at Moon Star Restaurant on nearby North Anjuna Beach. Here, feast on paneer tikka cooked in a brick oven with onion and green peppers. For a different experience altogether, ask at reception about the champagne sunset cruise that sets sail from Coco Beach. Farther afield, yoga enthusiasts will appreciate the range of classes, herbal healings and rejuvenating rubdowns at Ashiyana Tropical Retreat.
How to Get There
Stayed with family from 21st to 24th April 2019. The hotel driver was present at the airport at the time of arrival and transported to hotel without any delay. We reached the hotel by 11am . Check in time was 2pm so we had planned to wait in the lobby until that time but to our surprise the staff at the reception immediately arranged us our room. The room was excellent. It was deluxe delight room with a queen bed. The second surprise was when they brought my baby girl her favourite orange drink and a very cute lion soft toy which accompanied her on all our sight seeing trips. Special mention about the staff at the travel desk. The arranged the complementary airport transfers and also local site seeing trips. My suggestion is to arrange all site seeing trips through the travel desk because the driver who accompanied us was a decent gentleman very patient fellow who guided us throughout. It did give us a feeling of safety while travelling family. We requested for a dvd for my kid and along with the dvd came a bottle of pepsi and popcorn. Though these are little little things they did indeed made our stay beautiful. They do have a very lovely roof top pool which gives a great view of Mandovi river and sunset. The lifeguard is present all the time who ensured adequate towels drinking water and cut fruits. What we really loved about the pool was the long jacuzzi by the side of the main pool. Only after we checked out at 11am on 24th april we came to know that our flight was delayed however the reception staff safely kept all our luggages and allowed us to use the hotel facilites and pool and even transfered us to the airport at 7pm. All the staff at the hotel including the reception, help desk, travel desk, restaurants and the security staff always greeted us with a smile and were really friendly. Last but not the least I must mention about the security we get while we stay in Taj which I believe is the best anyone can provide to their guests. THIS WAS OUR FIRST VISIT TO THE TAJ BUT THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT GOING TO BE THE LAST....Keep going.
