Very nice resort in a beautiful setting right at the backwaters and close to the beach. Rooms are spacious, retaurants are both great, bar is outstanding, especialy the creative and Customer orientated Barkeeper. World highly recommend the SPA and the trip to the plantation of thonikadavu, which is a very special adventure one should not miss.

If u believe that the most important aspect of any hotel is its people then u have hit the jackpot with taj bekal. I did not find a single person not enjoying his job and everyone makes u feel like u r the only guest at the hotel. Service is par excellence! The spa is 5 star, asias biggest, Jiva... More

Really nice and beautiful property. Very well designed.. But worst service of any taj. The AC did not work properly, lot of dirty plates in the restaurant.. Free WiFi is a joke. Super complicated if u have multiple devices. Worst of all we asked for a fan and got this filthy fan.. Which we would not even keep in our... More

We stayed at the Vivanta Resort at Bekal Beach for 3 nights. It was a relaxing weekend. We enjoyed the luxury of our own private pool and the incredible outdoor bath tub. The food was good, the garden and the pool area were great and the spa was amazing. We will come back.

It was worth the spend in every possible way. The drive from Bangalore was a little hectic but in the end it was rewarding once we entered the property. Every thing was just awesome - the room, the balcony bed swing with the river view, the food, the private beach.

The awesome set up refreshes you the moment you step in there. The helpful staff welcomes you after a tiring road trip from the airport. The buffet laid down in the morning is lavish and opulent. Simply loved my experience. Kudos to JourneyCook team for making my vacations a hit always,

My husband & I went for a weekend to Bekal in the month of February. We were picked up by the hotel driver from Managlore airport (2 hr drive). Who knew we were in for the ride to heaven! We were warmly welcomed by the super courteous hotel staff and were shown to our villa. A great spa, an interesting... More

Visited this hotel for a quiet relaxing holiday and we were not dissappointed. From the onset it was obvious we had chosen the best place, the room was excellent with its own pool and well furnished. We soon relaxed and made use of all the facilities, the food was just great I think we went through most of the menu... More

Went here for a small vacation in the month of July 2014. The beautiful view of the property is a major starter and helped us knock down the 3 hour road journey from Mangalore airport fatigue in no time. Since it was raining for the most of our 4 day stay, the outdoor option were limited to be in the... More
