Find the perfect hotel Whether you are a first-time visitor, or searching for something different for your next trip, we are here to help find the perfect hotel or multi-centre combination for you. Beach hotels – making the most of Goa’s striking coastline, many of the hotels in our collection lie on or close to the state’s finest beaches. Some of our favourite beachfront properties include the sought-after Ramada Caravela (pages 44-45), the spacious Vivanta by Taj Holiday Village (page 24) and the charming family-run Chalston Beach Resort (page 31).
Hotel classifications As a developing country, hotels, service levels and gradings in India cannot be compared to those in European destinations, although the top end of the market is world class. We have therefore created our own rating system to grade our hotels, illustrated by a lotus flower. A flower outline illustrates a midway grade.
The luxury experience – as destination specialists, we have personally selected the finest and most luxurious properties in Goa. From the palatial elegance of the Taj Exotica (pages 40-41), to the opulence that awaits you at The Leela (pages 38-39), our Luxury Collection will not disappoint the most discerning of travellers.

Panjim Inn and Casa Anjuna do not have a grading attributed to them. We consider these properties to have unique features and hard to classify despite offering comfortable accommodation. We are also pleased to offer a number of ‘Exclusive to Us’ hotels within our programme. These are hotels that no other UK operator features in their brochure. We provide detailed information on our hotel pages with further details on our website to help you make the right choice. Our dedicated reservations team will be happy to discuss in more detail which hotel best suits your requirements.
