very nice hotel with nice food quality and very good hospitality. Apr 12, 2012
I would recommend this hotel for a couple of days retreat, honeymoon, or a any kind of relaxation, though not really for families with young children, except as a base. Would definitely go again 10/10 .............................................................................................................................................................okay................................................................................okay..aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Amazing week at the Vivanta by Taj Holiday Village May 28, 2012
It was my first time in Goa on vacation and first time stay at the Holiday Village and it was a mesmerising experience. The property is amazing, both in terms to location as its bang in the heart of North Goa and 10 - 12 drive from Baga beach, and in the way it’s structured. Being where it is, its stone throw away Fort Aguada, Candolim, Calangute and Anjuna beaches and the famous Flee market at Anjuna beach. Book your stay with a breakfast package only as most of the day you would be out enjoying Goa and its amazing delicacies but make sure you get up early enough to have the breakfast everyday as it’s a continental menu and the food is amazing. Taj has its own breach like most other 5 stars in "South" Goa so you can enjoy water sports just max 5 mins walk from wherever you are on the property. The best time to visit Goa is the last week of September when the season rates have not kicked in but most of the pleasure activities have started, just make sure it’s still not raining during that time. It’s a gamble which would pay off immensely if you play it right. When in Goa, make sure to hire a self-drive car (Swift - 6000 rupees Sept '11 last week) and make sure you get your GPS with you. The travel desk at the property is helpful and would be able to provide information on where to go and what to do. Goa is not only beaches and pubs but also has great country side with dotted with mountains and lush green landscaping. Make sure to visit the Sahakari Spice farm which I am sure would be a memorable experience. Also, make sure to do mountain climbing activities arranged by the Vivanta by Taj Fort Aguada on the Aguada property itself (amazing site with breath taking views). Other activities available in Goa include Scuba diving, Micro light flying along with a bunch of regular water sports. And after a long day, make sure to have a couple massage at the Jiva spa which is cheaper and far better in quality than some of the individual treatments. After the massage, you get to share personal time with you partner in a big Jacuzzi enjoying an aromatic bath with a chilled bottle of sparkling champagne at your disposal. Think I have said enough and it’s time for you guys to experience Goa your way and discover much more than what can be thought of and inked. Once last pointer from me is to make sure you do not book your flight via Kingfisher (unless you have frequent flier miles to use) as they do not have a direct flight to Goa (at least they did not have when we visited this September). Take care and wish you all the very best this holiday season and the coming new year. Have a blast!

Room Tips - Make sure to book the sea view or the pool view cottage. The pool view cottage is 3 mins from the dining area, 3 mins from the sun deck and 2 mins from the pool. For privacy, book the extreme right corner sea view cottage which is far away from the hustle and 2 mins from the golf course. It has a great view of the sea with a hammock where you can rest all day andd night enjoying the view and sound of the sea. Be advised that this sea view cottage is a good 5 mins walk from the reception and carts are not readily available

Great place but best for families Sep 07, 2009
Visited in 2008. A large Taj property with very nice rooms, lots of grass and trees, great facilities including a nice dining area with excellent sea view, a great pool, fine food, and very good room service. On a small beach beach with lots of activities such as watersurfing, airgliding, and various kinds of boats. Very kid friendly! However, we did not go to Goa with any kids or family, so not the best place for my visit. It is too secluded from "main" Goa beaches. Chose it because it was listed among the top hotels in Goa. From the hotel you have to take a cab to go to the popular beaches. Better to get a hotel closer to one of big beaches. (Stayed here for several days, realized the mistake, and for last two days changed to Hotel Lemon Tree which was right on a popular beach). Even though the food at this Taj property is excellent, it is not worth spending money on food and drinks here. The real cool places are the shacks on the major beaches, and they are a fraction of the hotel price.
