Nice place to relax with your loved ones.warm welcome by staffs and smooth check in.We stayed in DELUXE DELIGHT WITH PLUNGE POOL for 3 nights. Except for the restaurent which will be full in the morning and we have to wait for 30 to 40 mins for having our breakfast,it's an awesome place to chill

One can spend the day in the pool,lounge in the little gazebos overlooking the river or indulge in some 'me' time in the jiva spa. Being fish lovers was a little disappointed with... More

A very beautiful and peaceful property of Taj. Visited in the month of October. This property is lush green with the scenic view of back waters and beach. I loved my stay. The villas are spacious and nicely done. My special thanks to the staff members, specially Moya and Ravi( the yoga sir ).

We were in Taj Bekal in Diwali 2014 and once again absolutely loved it. This was our second trip and we thought the property, the service and the food were once again great. I would strongly recommend this hotel for anybody looking for a quiet 3 day break. We will be back.
