Aguada Beach Resort
How to get there : The Taj complex is a mere 45-minute drive from the airport. Free complimentary coach transfer is provided.
Goa, where the palm fringed shore of India's western coast spills over with the bounty of nature. And the strains of the mandolin mingle with the gentle lapping of the Arabian Sea, floating up to serenade the stars. Savour these pleasures with the Taj, a sprawling complex of 88 acres on the Golden sands of Calangute Beach. With 3 resorts: The Aguada Hermitage, Fort Aguada Beach Resort and Taj Holiday Village. Choose to stay at any of these three resorts and you can experience the fare at our 9 restaurants, delight in the water of our two freshwater pools or if you fancy, select a sport of your choice at our superbly equipped sports complex.
Built, into the ramparts of a 16th centuary Portuguese forttress , Fort Aguada Beach Resort is a fascinating structure where romance whispers from the elegant terraces down to the emerald gardens.
The main complex affords a choice of standard rooms and terrace suites with spectacular views. And nestling upon a hilltop are the newly designed cluster of cottages that come with either 1 or 2 bedrooms.
