Guest Testimonial

We were genuinely sad to leave India but as they say all good things come to an end. I reiterate my thanks to everybody at Abercrombie and Kent. We have travelled extensively and have lots of experience of similar high class travel companies. However, we thought that your service was exemplary in all respects. All of your staff were frankly brilliant and you organised a holiday that we will never forget.

A wonderfully relaxed place that perfectly reflects the spirit of Goa, the Vivanta by Taj Holiday Village offers charming terracotta cottages, pretty pathways and fragrant gardens. Displaying a perfect combination of modern elegance and Goan-Portuguese architecture, this beach resort exudes a fresh, relaxed ambiance.

The cottages and villas are set in lush gardens between swinging palms. All are stylish, spacious and light in equal measure. Polished floors and neutral décor is the backdrop for lovely contemporary furniture, colourful furnishings and all the mod cons. Double patio doors open onto private terraces or gardens equipped with plantation furniture, whilst newly refurbished bathrooms are stocked with Egyptian cotton towels and luxury soaps.

The public areas of the hotel are stunning. Again designed in the Goan-Portuguese style they are awash with lovely, quirky design touches - from mosaic tiling to thatched roofs.
