This is the first time I am reviewing a hotel. My previous memorable stays in India have been at Orange County Coorg and Oberoi Wildflower but Taj Bekal with its charm, warmth, hospitality and above all humanity shall forever remain special. I stayed at Taj Bekal for about a week with my wife and ten month old daughter. We were... More

A memorable stay and experience. Kudos to the staff who made sure every possible need is taken care of. The property very well located and nicely maintained. A few hiccups were there initially due to dampness in the room, I am sure weather is also to blame but overall had a good experience.

The Vivanta by Taj Bekal was something we stumbled across on tripadvisor and we were really impressed looking at the pictures of the place. They have done a really good job of maintaining the property. The hotel staff is quite friendly and help fulfill your whims and desires. The food was just average though, I think that might be intentional... More

I went with my family to Taj Bekal last weekend. From arrival to stay to good to amenities to hospitality, there was nothing less than perfection. The room is huge and has a huge swing in the courtyard facing the backwaters. Every thing in the room matched the theme of the resort and its beautiful surroundings. I tried kayaking, swimming...

First of all this hotel is situated at a stuning backwaters at Bekal. The property is huge and well maintained. Stayed here for 3 nights during June 2015 as part of the extended stay package. The deluxe delight villa was very spacious and the plunge pool too was good. Bekal fort is located merely 8 kms away and is a... More

It is perfect place to unwind yourself especially with kids. We had a room with a plunge pool which was the perfect since the kids had their space. On the whole it is a very comfortable resort. The food was nice but was missing the Taj Experience. The entire staff is excellent and really pampers you.

The property of Taj is really Wah Taj!!!. The rooms are very well designed, especially the rooms with Plunge pool. The staff was courteous friendly & helpful. One of the best things we found was good Jain Food. The Chef Subin at the Latitude restaurant deserve a special mention. He was always ready to make different cusines in Jain for... More

Stayed in this property this weekend (June 5 to June 7, 2015), and it was quite a memorable stay. The property is relatively new and hence the rooms (room is an understatement, it was a villa ) were chic - neat and clean. The overall property is spread across a sprawling area close to the beach and backwaters and has... More
