Although it was mid monsoon we were fortunate to have the weather co-operate.I enjoyed the beach access which is ideal for long walks and the kids loved the pool.They offer Bicycles to go around the property...

very well developed property . safety measures are excellent. very warm and helpful staff. food can be better in terms of variety in malabar cuisine. very clean and can find some eco friendly items. requests were attended to promptly. jiva spa is place worth trying out especially the ayurveda section.

We had a great weekend stay at the Taj Bekal. Beautifully set along the backwaters, the surroundings are tranquil and peaceful, a welcome change from the busy city life. The rooms are big, airy and comfortable. Our room had a sit-out with a huge swing (two people can comfortably sleep on it!) which over-looked the backwaters. A lovely way to... More

If there is one Taj Property that excels in every thing, its Taj Bekal. If there is one place that will relax you from the time you step in the property, Its Taj Bekal. If there is one resort that will spoil you shamelessly, its Taj Bekal. And, I must have visited almost every Taj Hotel and Resort across India.... More

The entire staff hotel has been trained and geared to offer a great experience to the guests. The property is very well laid out with good use of natural features which gives it a distinct feel with both a beach as well a backwaters on the property. We were there for a short family vacation and truly enjoyed our stay... More

Excellent location of property, enhanced by service with a warm smile. So many things to do as you discover newer things till you depart - the beach, the backwaters, the sculptures, the green manicured landscape, the spa, lavish rooms with a tasteful décor and art, local Kerala food .... shutterbugs have umpteen opportunities to shoot - wonderful relaxing experience thanks...
