A dose of colonial luxury
More than living up to the quality reputation which comes with the Taj group name, Taj Exotica is a luxurious, palatial hotel with something of a colonial style in terms of its architecture and design. Grand polished marble floors, beamed wooden ceilings and antiques all add to the hotel’s character and charm, flaunting a stylish and affluent appeal that adds to the memorable aspects of a stay at this luxury hotel.
Relaxation and activities by the beach
Located along the white sands of Benaulim Beach, the Taj Exotica is spread over 56 acres, enjoying spacious grounds and ample facilities. Peace and tranquillity are easily found in its lush manicured gardens, while activities can be enjoyed in the shape of several sporting opportunities. Relax by the large swimming pool or on the palm-fringed beach, unwind in the Jiva Spa and sample their range of treatments including ancient Ayurveda, or try one of the many activities available including golf, tennis and open-air yoga sessions; there’s so much to do here.
Comfort and indulgence
When it comes to the rooms, you’ll enjoy spacious and comfortably decorated choices, harmoniously blending Goan and Portuguese influences. The recently renovated Deluxe rooms are set in the main building, while the Garden villas and Pool villas are scattered within the gardens. You’ll enjoy a great range of features in the rooms, including air-conditioning, a minibar, a television and tea/coffee-making facilities.
Food lovers will rejoice in a stay here too, with a wide range of dining experiences to choose from. You’ll experience everything from casual eateries to fine dining, with the best of Goan seafood, Mediterranean, Arabic and Oriental cuisines all on offer.
