    I am considering booking the Vivanta by Taj Fort in Aguada Goa and have a few questions before I finalise any plans with my family about the stay. Traveling to Goa would be my wife my 3-year son and possibly my parents if I manage to convince them to go.

    - I would first like to know what options there are for rooms at the hotel and whether they have any huts or villa types?

    - Is there babysitting service available at the hotel?

    - Is there some package from the hotel which would include room booking, and one meal or meals?

    - Is there a bar by the pool?

It has stunning views of both the Arabian sea and the 16th century Fort Aguada, whether you're in your room or you're basking in the infinity pool. Everything here is within your reach too, the fort, the Sinquerim beach or maybe the commercial hubs of Goa. However, the resort does provide everything you might ever need, from dining, to activities and to relaxation. It's the perfect place to unwind and just relax, no need for even leaving the resort itself.

    What are the different types of rooms in the Vivanta by Taj Fort Aguada?
