With a forested hillside perch and gorgeous Sea Views, the 299-room Taj Resort & Convention Centre, our luxurious vertical resort in Goa, oozes luxury & scale. 10 minutes from Panjim and neighbouring the Cidade de Goa, it stands tall, bold and generous. Much like the spirit of Goa.
Enter a cocktail of enviable spaces and modern design. After being greeted on arrival by vertical gardens and an elegant fountain, step into the views, starting with the lobby that sweeps in the Arabian sea. Look above and the boldness of Goa stares back at you, in the form of a suspended boat’s hull. Look around and you discover a resort of plenty.
On your left lies the BLD, your multi-cuisine restaurant that’s open for, yes you guessed it, breakfast, lunch and dinner. The extended alfresco terrace is a great spot to park yourself for the sun and sea. It has a formidable neighbour in the form of The Banyan, the resort’s “Eat-Bar”, which takes its name from a 200-year-old Banyan tree that is a landmark in the resort. The speciality restaurant C2C offers coastal cuisine from around the world and sweeping views of the waters. A 25m Lap pool, on the lower ground floor adjacent to the Gym and Kids Club, near the stilted roots of the Banyan tree, keeps the vibe easy and the views spectacular.
The convention centre is the centre piece. Lorded over by a 1200 sq. metres pillarless hall, 6 breakaway spaces, an exclusive entrance and ample recreational options, scale here is inevitable. 282 rooms & 17 themed suites, play perfect accessories, with more than half of them facing the sea. Suites and Club Rooms top up the experience with the 24x7 Club Lounge.
For the best high in Goa, however, head up to the instagrammable rooftop, suitably landscaped with a large infinity pool along the sea-facing edge and boasting a sunken bar. The Vainguinim beach, the Zuari bay and the sea beyond all appear within reach. Pause for the sunsets and the light illuminating statues of Dona Paula. If this were not dramatic enough, soak in the Jiva spa or better still, park yourself at the 40-seater cinema that the resort offers cinephiles.
To cut a tall story short, there is plenty here to make your moments larger than life at our luxury resort near Dona Paula in Goa.
