Though do... More

Everything thing was very nice, friendly, courteous n elegant except the access to beach was far n via sideway. Food was great, had good time with family. Special compliments to the hotel to allow us to use Banquet hall for family gathering as complimentary. Complimentary Evening tea was most welcome.

absolutely impressed with the prompt and personalised service by the entire staff. The service quality was better than most other boutique 5 or 7 star properties. Rooms are very nice and comfortable and some of them come with an attached terrace as well. Only disadvantage is that's the hotel's not on the cliff

This was my first vacation with the twins, and we chose this resort because of the fine reputation that the Taj properties have. However, I was still very pleasantly surprised by the attentive staff and a response time below 10 min for any request made. The property was great, as expected, with enough space for the kids to run around.... More
