This is a superb place if you want to stay away from the dust and dirt of urban India. It is cut-off from the city and a perfect spot to laze around. It is an hour or two from Mangalore airport - I would highly recommend working with the front desk to arrange a pickup and drop. The rooms are... More

This paradise is spread in 26 acres of land which is very well maintained to its length and breadth. The pool villa were i stayed is so royal and romantic with complete privacy. The... More

Stayed in the month of June for 4N/5D in Villa with the courtyard. Deliberate choice to avoid the pool Villa with kids. The room was spacious with a lounging area that overlooked the backwaters. There were enough activities to keep the kids (10,13) occupied and happy. The kids spent a lot of time in the hotel pool or cycling around... More

First of all, let me thank the entire staff of Taj Bekal for one of the best stays i have ever had. It wouldn't have been possible without them. Stayed here for 3 days on the 15th August weekend. We were 2 couples booked in 2 plunge pool villa's. The rooms are absolutely majestic with a lovely sitout with complete... More

This is an amazing resort, a beautiful oasis of peaceful backwaters, gently swaying palms and abundant greenery, the best that Kerala could possibly offer. Rooms are spacious ( we stayed in Superior Charm King) and charmingly furnished; the wow factor, for me, was the bed-swing in the balcony, from where the backwaters and greenery could be contemplated on, and the...

Stayed here with my pregnant wife for 3 nights under the monsoon package. Firstly, let me put a little light on the journey. You have 2 options to reach here. 1) Flight or train to Mangalore & 60-70 kms from there to Bekal. 2.5-3 hours (2500 Rs) 2) Train to Kasaragod & taxi from there. 1-1.5 hour (500 rs.) The... More

Had very quaint and amazing 4 nights. The property is massive and the villas are just perfect. We travelled during the monsoons and were dreading bad rains, but we did find ample time to indulge in a lot of activities. The rains weren't that bad after all. We travelled with our 8 month old daughter, and the Chefs were 'thrilled'... More

This is an excellent property set up in a very romantic environment. The Kappil river and the Arabian sea make up part of the boundary of the property. Greenery has been maintained throughout the place and looks lovely. We opted for the villa with the plunge pool. The villa appears like a house from the outside with huge entrance gate.... More
