Set on the southwest coast of Goa, this outpost of the Taj chain rests on 56 acres of exquisitely landscaped lawns, complete with tropical plants and graceful palms. There are 140 centrally air-conditioned rooms, including two presidential villas with private plunge pools. All rooms are spacious, luxuriously appointed, and feature a private veranda or balcony that looks out on the Arabian Sea. The Exotica has three highly rated restaurants: Miguel Arcanjo, a Mediterranean restaurant serving Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, and Provençal fare; Allegria, a Goan establishment; and Li Bai, a Chinese restaurant.

From the readers of Condé Nast Traveler:
Palm trees, 56 acres of gardens, and flower-lined patios envelop this "beautiful coastal property." Goan and Portuguese style infuses rooms, which have private verandas and sea or garden views. The lounge areas and sun-exposed atrium are "great for relaxing, especially after a day at the beach." Enjoy the Lobster Shack's "very good food" at a table overlooking the beach.
