Taj Holiday Village Resort & Spa, Goa unveiled its award-winning All-day Dining – Caravela in an all-new avatar. The Sky is Yours – A Unique Taj Dining Experience, complimented with Executive Chef Sahil Desai’s exclusively curated signature menu, the newly refurbished elegant dining promises a culinary experience like no other. As the world steps into the new normal, the spirit of Tajness stands reinvigorated at this elegant dining, driven by the supreme importance it places on the safety and delight of its guests.
Caravela transports you to the caravels used by the Portuguese for oceanic exploration voyages in the 15th and 16th century. Located on the Candolim beachfront, against the backdrop of the magnificent Arabian Sea, the restaurant is designed to give the look and feel of a Portuguese trading ship. While the exteriors remain unchanged, the redecorated interiors create a more ﬂexible, spacious and free ﬂowing expanse. The conceptually designed chic and modern furniture with cheerful fabrics add a vivacious touch. The floor to ceiling glass doors separate the indoor and outer deck seating, showcasing stunning views as the sun sets painting the skies above in colourful hues.
You can kick start your mornings with a scrumptious breakfast, offering a wide selection of Indian, American and a variety of healthy options to choose from. Take your pick from an assortment of international breakfast choices including delicious Fruit Smoothies, crispy Waffles, fresh Baked Delights, Eggs and a variety of Cereals. Poori Bhaji, Poha, Paratha and a wide selection of South Indian breakfast preparations are favourites from the Indian selection.

Appetizing entrees include zesty Salads, aromatic Soups and a range of scrumptious Burgers, Sandwiches, Wraps, Pastas and Pizzas to pick from.
