Rating: Five Star
My wife and I were seeking a few days of rest and relaxation after our long journey from Dallas Texas. After our days at Pousada Tauma we were beginning 12 days of touring in Mumbai and Rajhistan. Pousada Tauma turned out to be the perfect place. We arrived one week after the attacks in Mumbai only to discover many people had canceled their reservations. First of all there could be no safer time to travel than right after an attack. While the country may have been lax before the attacks, everyone was on alert after the attacks.
The hotel is a complex of suites built around a gloriously large swimming pool surrounded by incredibly beautiful dense trees loaded with birds. We stayed in the AquaMarine Suite.
The staff was wonderfully attentive to our every need. They are literally at your beck and call 24/7 and ready to answer any question or solve any problem. One day we asked for croissants at breakfast. They didn't have any but when the bread basket came out the next morning three beautiful croissants were sitting on top. They arranged transport from the airport in Panjim to the hotel, had a driver take us to the beach of our choice and pick us up when ready to return. On another day they arranged a tour around town and various places in the region. The restaurant is top notch, small and intimate.
One side note. Pousada Tauma is not opulant. It is not like staying at the Plaza in New York or the Four Seasons in Thailand. Pousada Tauma is a tranquil, intimate, clean inn with caring service.
Best of all is Neville, the hands on owner. A gracious host who is around and visible. He treats guests as if they were guests in his own home. He has acquired a large home directly on the beach and is transforming it into a splendid guest house for two couples. Stay tuned.
