Bad planning, guys.

If you had a meet around this time, you could've been swimming around in the stuff that turns you on most!

Guys,
what happened to the T-BHP drive - Part2 ?
Anyway,
for people staying next to or in Taj Village (20K/person for 5 nights + Rs500 meal credit/day - Atleast in March, including petrol divided by passengers), the oil spill will not affect.
Places to eat in Goa are the Italian joint in Taj Fort Aquada, Brittos.
Forgot the names of the other places.
Jet skis from the Taj beach are very expensive so 1 KM down the beach (in the direction of the stuck ship) there are a few places which are cheaper.
Since i cannot come, do take lots of pictures.
Oh and I think in Club Cabbanna its only entry for couples so either Be *** or take your loved ones with you. (Heck this was the reason me an my friends idn't go there. The chicks came 2 days later).
Another good but expensive and distant option is the Le Meridien.
Awesome beach and an Awesome hotel but you are away from the nightlife.
Children under 18 are allowed in Titos and Cabbana and my friends were not stopped when they smoked or drank (But children never ever try smoking or else you will repent it all your life).
Oh and If Taj is expensive, go to Palm Shades which has the same beach but is cheaper but no swimming pool and the chicks at Taj are hotter.
Also do take a DVD player and some DVDs and for the price, Food from the Kiddies Menu is quite filling and in some cases better but more embarrising.
But the rooms we had taken were not exactly the best (1024, 1055. Don't know what they were so mentioning the room numbers) so try to get the other type of rooms (2018) which are more expensive (same price but for 4 nights) and i do not think the Bathrooms were lockable.
Also Dominoes Delivers to Taj.
Also if there is wine in your room, DO NOT DRINK IT. It sucks. But it is good fun sticking scary notes on to the pears and throwing them from your rooms balcony to the other rooms balcony (some G*Y people were in the other room so we scared them by throwing the Pears).
Since i cannot come, enjoy and post pics.
Sorry for the long post and i forgot to add that there is a groceries shop which sells alcohol just 10 mins walking in the direction of the Kingfisher Villa (It is actually after the Villa).

Thanx a ton Lambo for the very useful info ! but the problem is that when in Goa the best way to enjoy is not from the comfort of the 5 star room but to rough it out !

ride bikes - eat n drink at run down shacks , go to beaches and get wet like normal people...et all..... and yeah going and surviving on 100 Rs a day is more fun and challening ....wat say ?

That is why i suggested Palm Shades.
It is right on the beach and enjoyable.
Also there are quite a few joints from the Taj to Brittos (when you are walking on the beach) and i had a few drinks there but no food so no comment.
I am jus givin you guys both the options.

hey guys goa is def about roughing it out and being out all day.just got back yesterday rented a yamaha rx 135 for Rs 200 and was riding that all day.brittos has got good food with descent prices.but in goa the best place to eat is in shacks on the beach.cabana is 600 buck entrance and then inside all drinks free and wed girls are free.titos was good some time back but now the croud isnt that great.

talking about water sports they wont allow you to do it now because the sea is too rough because the monsoon is setting in so all water sports are closed.


anyway when are we going to have a meet in goa.
