More private villa than resort, Pousada Tauma is run by Neville Proenca, the delightful hands-on owner. Built of laterite and other local materials, the eco-friendly Pousada, designed to use minimal resources, features traditional tile-roofed stone buildings set around a pool with a swim-up bar and waterfall. The rooms—each featuring a private terrace or garden, satellite TV, and direct-dial telephone—are simply decorated with cotton bedspreads, copper-pot lamps, and colonial-style furniture. The playful, Gaudí-esque bathrooms are covered in shattered, brightly colored tiles. There's also a small Ayurvedic spa run by professional Keralan therapists, and the Copper Bowl restaurant serves good European food and superlative Goan specialties.
