Goa means different things to all of us. For some it is a leisurely retreat on tranquil beaches, for some it is a romantic getaway like no other and for some Goa is still the charming village that flirts with the seafront, where fun-lovers come for repeat doses of delight. Few can deny that for those in need of a sanctuary that takes away the chaos of the city life, Goa is one of the best places in India. The little coastal stretch of paradise is also home to three of the most luxurious and upscale Taj properties that are easily some of the best leisure and business hotels in Goa.
Vivanta by Taj – Holiday Village, Goa is a bit different, yet the same in many ways – it’s one of the best 5-star hotels in Goa. Soak in one of the best beach resorts in Goa that reflects the spirit of the place. Enjoy the subtle and complex flavours of Thai cuisine at Banyan Tree, one of the most happening Thai restaurants in Goa. Must-try dishes here include the deep fried king prawns with garlic and pepper sauce, the spicy raw papaya salad and the classic Thai green curry with chicken, to name a few. You can also take on a whole new world of Goan-Portuguese fusion food at The Goan and seafood speciality restaurant, Beach House & if you are bold enough, let Cashew Feni be the spirit behind your meal.
There is also the romantic, charming and vibrant Vivanta by Taj – Fort Aguada, Goa. It has history woven in its walls. This is where royalty, heads of government agencies and the biggest celebrities are known to frequent. Morisco overlooking the Candolim-Calangute-Baga beach stretch, serves fresh seafood at the live interactive kitchen where Executive Chef Hrudananda Behera offers the finest preparations from oriental, continental and Goan cuisine. Try resisting the Temura fried King prawns. The Italian spread at Il Camino, one of the best Italian restaurants in Goa features an array of antipasti, soups and mains and the open show kitchen where a large pizza oven bakes delightful thin crust pizzas.
If you are heading to the North side, Vivanta by Taj – Panaji, Goa is a smart stroll away from everything there is to see and do in the capital city of Goa and is one of the best hotels in North Goa. It’s close to where the River Mandovi meets the Arabian Sea and also where the road leading down from the Chief Minister’s residence in Altinho meets the centre of Goa’s art and culture – The Kala Academy.
