Perched on the cliff facing the majestic Arabian Sea, Taj Resort & Convention Centre is undoubtedly one of the most luxurious destinations in the state of Goa. The property has a contemporary design with a rooftop infinity pool making it an uber-luxurious haven in the state.

In addition to being a popular holiday destination, Goa is also an increasingly preferred wedding destination. From the rich and famous to business tycoons, Goa is the desired choice when it comes to celebrating special moments amidst the sun, sea and siesta. Taj Resort & Convention Centre now comes as an opulent addition to the sunshine state with the largest inventory when paired with the neighbouring Cidade de Goa – IHCL SeleQtions as a complex.

The resort opened its doors in the year 2020 when the world had been profoundly affected by a global pandemic. Despite a rough start, the resort held its position at the top of the grossing properties in the state. 

The pandemic threw the entire world out of gear but Goa remained immune and the hospitality industry in the state created new milestones. Among the many new properties that opened up in the state, Taj Resort & Convention Centre, Goa shone as the most exclusive offering from the lot. While the waves of the virus continued to strike in different parts of the world, this mammoth of a property with 60,000 sq.ft of conference space and 299 luxurious rooms continued to stand tall setting new benchmarks in the hospitality industry.

Guests staying at Taj Resort & Convention Centre, Goa also have the privilege to access Cidade de Goa – IHCL SeleQtions. An amalgamation of warmth and the laid back elegance of sussegado, designed by world-renowned architect Charles Correa. Credited with the creation of modern architecture in post-Independent India, the murals, chequered floors, balcaos and tiled roofs take one through a historical Portuguese-Goan journey.

What was the idea behind Taj Resort & Convention Centre?

Taj Resorts & Convention Centre is a gift by the Fomento Group to the state of Goa. I can confidently say, there is no other hotel like it in the state. Goa required a Convention Centre facility, it is now fulfilled with the introduction of Taj Resort & Convention Centre. The state is now equipped to host conventions at this splendid property. I can describe it as one of the finest convention resorts in Asia as it has the best vistas. If one were to go to the terrace or in any of the room balconies, the panoramic views of the magnificent Arabian Sea, Zuari River, Mormugao Harbour and Vainguinim Beach will leave you enchanted.
