Taj Bekal is quite a drive away from Bangalore but well worth the trip. A better way to get there is by taking a flight to Mangalore and driving down to Bekal. The property in itself is lush green and relaxing. Like any typical Taj, the overall experience is impeccable. Rooms are great, especially the one with the private plunge... More

Superb location, fantastic rooms and great service. This is a destination not yet very popular so go and book a stay soon before Bekal is run over by tourists. Bekal is located about a 1.5-2 hour drive from Mangalore airport. The location of the property is stunning - at the junction of the backwaters and the beach. This gives you... More

Bekal, being a holiday spot by itself, has many resorts. Vivanta by Taj at Bekal is excellent, having all facilities for the family. The rooms are extremely neat with superb restaurants and an unbeatable landscape, with activities like Kayaking, Archery, Paintball etc. This hotel is extremely good!

We ate at their restaurants and the food was cold and we were even served wrong food and had to wait!! But the most frustrating part was that we spoke to the... More

The newest addition to Taj properties at an upcoming location, Bekal is value for money, if you wish to relax with family or organise corporate get togethers. The availability of local cuisine, hospitality of staff, the layout of the resort; all add to the relaxing experence. It is right on the beach, has local attractions such as the Bekal Fort,... More
