Nestled against the remains of an erstwhile Portugese fort and alongside the azure waters of the Indian ocean is Taj Fort Aguada in Goa recently christened Vivanta by Taj. Spread over 42 acres of gardens, golf course, trekking trails, three gourmet restaurants and more it is at once alluring and awe-inspiring. A remnant from the British colonial area, the property was acquired by the Taj group later and turned into a resort. The architecture is Goan-Portugese, the decor both chic and luxurious, and the ambiance warm and invigorating. The property offers a variety of options to the discerning traveler – cottages with private terraces, garden and sea view executive suites and rooms and boasts of a world class spa for a host of rejuvenating therapies.
