This hotel has a great location, close enough to the nearby temples and caves but far enough away from the town so that you hear the waves, not the motorbikes. Rooms are spacious as are the bathrooms, simple wood and rattan furniture adds a nice beachfront touch. Terrific pool but none of the fountains around the property were working when... More

Lovely view of the pool and the Bay of Bengal from our room. Idyllic weather and the pool water was balmy. The hotel had few tourists and seemed to cater to conferences whose attendees were probably in sessions. Hence the lack of other guests lead to a distinct lack of atmosphere and made one notice that some serious upgrading of... More

My wife and I spend some lovely days this Easter at the Taj Fish. Cove. The resort has a fabulous fish restaurant Bayview that is situated on the beach with a beautiful view to the Bay of Bengal. The resort is close to the famous temples of Mahabalipuram which is a must visit site if you are in Tamil Nadu.... More

Given this is a Taj hotel I had very high expectations. And the hotel is nice, don't get me wrong but it's not as nice as you would expect... The rooms looks as average as any mid-range hotel (I stayed in the main building) and lacking features as dressing gown, limited selection in the minibar and the bathroom was very... More

We arrived for a one week stay to recover from the move to India from England. We booked the older style villa on the beach as was advised by others here at trip advisor. We brought our two large dogs, a Dalmation and a Weimerheimer. The cottage is perfection with an amazing out door shower, excellent linens, fast internet, huge... More

This is a 45 minute drive from Madras. When you step into the property, it instantly reminds you of Goa, but doesn't feel the same. Despite being a Taj, it falls short in any departments. The infrastructure needs massive repairs and transformation. The room doors don't open or shut in one go, without force. The bathroom doors and shower cubicle... More

We booked Taj to just relax and get a good view and access to the sea-side. On both counts, we were very happy. The room (sea-view superior) was very good, overseeing the lush greenery, pool and the sea. Service was excellent like you can expect in a 5-star property. Food was delicious - we dined primarily at the Sea Gull... More

Firstly we drew the worst cottgae C1 -there is no view,next to a pathway, noisy crows around, basin got blocked , shower was not functioning properly and overall the cottage looked shabby. However the manager was kind enough to shift us to a... More
