An almost perfect experience to visit the Vivanta at Bekal. Very good food, a lovely spa and charming rooms. A week passes very easily. There is not much else to do outside the hotel than to visit the fort and some non-descript temples.

amazing place to stay in an off beat location like Bekal. The staff is very hospitable and truly go out of their way to help. The Kerala meal is a little expensive but a must try. The beach is beautiful and has a private entrance. Kayaking in the backwaters is a must do

We travelled by our own vehicle, by road easily accessible from NH17 and very near from Kerala border. Location of Resort ,the JIVA Spa facility, beach and kappil river gives the real flavour of Kerala.The staff is very friendly .Try the typical Kerala meal (SADHYA).

It was Aug'14 when we visited Taj Bekal & what welcome we got! The lobby's just a lovely prelude to this marvelous property. We got the rooms with private plunge pool & the outdoor shower! The property's main pool is huge. They've got fun dance classes, cocktail making classes & activities like canoeing in the back waters. It boasts of... More

Great place to unwind. Facilities excellent. The rooms are beautiful. The best part is that it is a place where the 'elderly' can equally enjoy as any of us. The hotel is extremely attentive to client requirements, buggies are very useful. The b'fast is sumptuous. Room service is great . In summer the pool is lovely . The food needs... More
