In the centre of Panjim, there’s a place that has satiated cravings for authentic Pan-Asian food for a decade now. It’s been 10 years since Tamari at Vivanta by Taj Panaji opened the doors to the taste of sushi in Goa, and the food just keeps getting better. The ambience here is peaceful and relaxing, an excellent getaway from the hubbub of the city just outdoors. It’s the perfect place to enjoy anything from a working lunch to a weeknight dinner treat.
Summer is a time of year I’m particularly partial to spa treatments – they are supremely refreshing and rejuvenating in the face of unrelenting heat, humidity, and dust. One of my go-to spas in recent times has been Tattva at Cidade de Goa, Dona Paula’s favorite resort now taken over by the reputed Taj Group as part of its SeleQtions portfolio.
