Whoever said 'make in india'....i truly believe this statement because coming to this hotel I realized that you don't need to go to a Maldives or a Colombo. A beautiful hotel with beautiful surroundings. This place is unexplored so you get all the more privacy. The Taj standards are awesome making the stay memorable. I had a villa of my... More

This hotel is exotic place. Many of the rooms have private swimming pool. These swimming pools are large enough for any group of people staying in the rooms. The rooms itself is an area - not just room i.e. pool followed by private space and then room. The hotel itself is on the beach. The restaurant serves amazing variety of... More

Taj hospitality, delicious food, by the river with a long stretch of beach on other side, makes this resort very interesting. Nestled in between lots of greenery, the rooms/cottages are very well done up, absolute five star, lots of birds to be found in the resort full of flora and fauna. A well appointed large spa, over five acres, helps... More

Having been to Kerala twice before, flying all the way from Mumbai, and then driving 2.5 hours just to stay in a resort, I was wondering if its worth it. But trust me, it totally was! Romance comes to life at the... More
