HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 18 March 2017

We decided to take a luxurious break off for our anniversary & Bekal was our stop which is not a very go to tourist destination. However at Bekal there was no looking back once we knew Taj was there. After hearing so much about this property & post guidance we decided to splurge on their premium indulgence villa with a...

You get the best of a seaside resort and a tropical riverside paradise! The staff is very courteous and helpful. The sea food restaurant By-the-Bay was awesome, the chef took special care and prepared a dish out of the regular menu to suite our palate! We stayed there for 4 nights, it get a bit boring after the second night...

Firstly, I loved the property. Incredibly beautiful, luxurious villas, beautiful landscaping and architecture. We were upgraded to the pool villa, and it was absolutely incredible. Probably one of the best hotel rooms I've stayed in. My husband and I loved the resort very much and the staff was truly helpful and well meaning. I could go on and on about...

We reached the resort on 20th and till the time we checked out on 23rd it was pure bliss. Kids enjoyed the plunge pool in the Villa and also the swimming pool which was kept clean and in ambient temperature. You can spot many exotic birds around the back waters. Food (buffet) was sumptuous. The resort offers a whole set...

Perfect destination for honeymoon travellers or weekend travellers, they have one of the best spa experiences and multiple activities within the premises and a very friendly and caring team. They had a beautiful arrangement for a private dinner near the backwaters - awesome setup but on the climate was very humid spoiling the mood
