Luxury five star beach vacacy with a private beach at Taj Exotica Goa!
We had been to Taj exotica Goa on 8th November,2019 from Mumbai. The proprty is very huge and you have freedom  to move around in the hotel as they provide  you an option of cycling for 2 hours max . The food is good compared to the standards of a 5 star hotel , I can say its the best food I have ever had on a holiday!  The beach is very clean. We had a warm welcome at the resort where we were greeted with some Goan music and welcome drinks. The buffet they have is really amazing. Also they have this Buggy facility which can be used for going to places inside the resort. They have several amenities like Golf, Swimming Pool, Cricket Ground, Football Ground and Cycling as well.
You can avail cycling for a maximum of 2 hours per day per room.

The hotel has 3 fine dining options (1 Italian). The lobster shack is a restaurant which offers dining by the sea however it has limited vegetarian options and is quite costly. The quality of food is great and the chefs will prepare your food according to your taste.

Best time to visit:

The best time to visit Goa is between November and March when the weather is beautifully clear with cool sea breeze as it is the winter season (from November to February) and summer season (from March to October) in India. The months of May to September are considered off season. the peak season is between October and January.

Things to do in Benaulim:

The Benaulim area is popularly known as heaven for tourists. It has silver sand beaches and old architectural churches, old houses and temples. You can stroll through Benaulim beach and also visit the Mango market and buy genuine authentic Goan artifacts and products there but the only drawback there is that the market has very narrow lanes. you can also take boat trips which last for 5 hours on the river Sal of the Arabian sea it costs just INR 1000 that is 15.48 USD per person. You can spend your day visiting the Goa Chitra museum which has a collection of items from a bygone era. You will learn a lot about the early lifestyle and rural development of Goa. There is also St. John The Baptist church on Velaso road in Benaulim

Booking websites:

Flight rates from Mumbai to Goa:

The lowest fares start from 1901 INR per person as of 26th january 2020 (the charges may fluctuate as per taxes and days or dates of travel)
To get cheap airline tickets I suggest you to search for flights on weekdays and not weekends as the airfare is hyped on weekends like Friday , Saturday and Sunday.
