You get your own personal space near about 600 sq ft. including bathroom, room and courtyard. On one side there is backwater and other side beach. So, you can enjoy both. Property is very big and spacious.. Good pool, Food... More

I had visited this property in May, 2012. That time it was very new as it had just opened a month earlier. The staff as usual was very cordial and polite. We had requested for jain food and were pleasantly surprised that we had been given a chef to ourselves. The head chef, Mr Tendulkar was a delight as he... More

My wife and I stayed at the gorgeous property from 6th to 10th November. To say that the property is stunning wouldn't be doing it justice. We were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a Pool Villa with its own plunge pool, day bed with a swing, a huge luxurious room, outdoor shower, etc. The food at Latitude, the restaurant... More

I agree with other reviewers about the in house transport costs and the long journey from Mangalore but when you arrive you are in paradise. We booked the plunge pool villa, its very spacious,...

Taj Vivanta Bekal is definitely among my top 5 star stays. The property is brilliant, rooms exquisite, food amazing & the service excellent. I can't stop praising the property to Friends & Family & have now become a true TAJ loyalist. I had opted for a special package (only available on Taj's hotel booking website) where I got discounted rates... More

Earlier this summer, I went to Vivanta, Bekal for a few hours for work. The property was so stunning that I decided that a family vacation in Bekal was a must and so we went there just before Diwali. Getting there is not a cakewalk. The road from Mangalore (nearest airport) is quite bad and though Google Maps suggests under... More
