Very well laid out property. Good choice to relax, with activities like walk, cycling etc. The beach is very clean, which for me is a big plus. The rooms are spacious, with a nice balcony complete with a big swing. Wifi is on chargeable basis. Food is good, through the service time is bit too much. The A/c in the... More

God's own country in India is Kerala, it truly is beautiful and green, the luscious landscape when driving from the airport takes your breath away. Only do not travel during monsoon season. The Hotel is like a jewel in the green fields around. It is spread out and the Villas are absolutely gorgeous, especially the ones with a private plunge... More

I read the numerous reviews and praises about this place before booking it and i feel it will still not be able to sum up the experience that this property will give you. Taj Vivanta Bekal is a 1.5 hour drive from Mangalore airport, but due to poor road conditions during monsoons and some construction activity we took almost 2.5-3... More

The Drive from Bangalore to Bekal was really breath-taking with all the greenery around combined with the monsoon rains. We visited the resort in July 2014 and yes it was a very wonderful experience. The Check-in was very fast. We had booked a room which was very lavish with the interiors and also had a big balcony with a big... More
