I went with my son in June this year for a week. We spent a wonderful time. The staff in the restaurants were very friendly and warm. The hotel itself was very clean and comfortable. Great views from our beds. The lake looked amazing. It was our first monsoon experience and glad to have been there then. Would recommend to... More

I stayed here with my family (2 adults and 2 kids - 15 & 9 years old) between 27 and 29 Sep 2014. I would say, from check-in to check-out we have had great experience with this hotel. They handled the check-in very courteously and also gave me a free upgrade from the room I booked (premium) to Suite considering... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights having arrived from KL (and a horrible stay at Tune) so we were pretty keen to have some relaxation time. The staff were amazing, so friendly and helpful. I have no idea what was in the welcome drink but it was fantastic. The room was large, clean, beautifully furnished and extremely... More

We stayed at the hotel for a couple of nights last week and were so impressed with the hotel and it's staff. It was a beautiful property by the backwaters and very tastefully done up room. We stayed in the sea facing tower room which was spacious and comfortable with kids. There were numerous little gestures which made us feel... More

Stayed for three nights to celebrate our 10th anniversary. Everything was perfect. Stayed in a high floor, executive room. Right from welcome to room arrangements to location was perfect. Had a corner room with views on two sides. Food was also excellent. the evening cruise was good. Also used the jiva spa, which was also very good. the infinity pool... More

Hotel itself was beautiful. The staff attentive, friendly and courteous and although I couldn't see any point in visiting a place and not leaving the pool as some do on holiday, we enjoyed the 'pampering' so much that we only had one and a half days away during our five night stay. I don't recommend, as folks requirements differ but... More

I stayed at this outstanding property after almost two decades, and to my delight found that it has only bettered its own standards. The hospitality and "service with a smile" was typical of what differentiates the Taj Hotels from most others. The new wing, although 7 floors high has blended very well with the environment. In fact you could spend... More
