One of the imaginative and super locations and layout done by taj. Coorg and kovalam exceed the usual taj resorts. Staff is super, very good jiva spa and excellent rooms. Cleanliness and maintenance is great. Walking is great and you can enjoy it. Best time to visit is when it's raining. The feeling and view is like sitting on top... More

I was here for my best friend's bachelorette weekend and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay as we intended to spend our entire weekend in the premises and we did! This gorgeous property is spread out in the form of small housing units surrounded by Balinese style landscaped gardens and water bodies. As the weather was really... More

We were put in 408 which was on the higher side of hill overlooking the Arabian sea and the back water (which happens to be part of property). Spent most of the time on the balcoy view the verdant greenery and listening to waves. Food - Bait was my best encounter with sea food in a long long time. Thanks... More

A very good facility for business stay, leisure , would highly recommend for visit and stay. I had a very pleasant experience and the staff is really very friendly and warm. Felt at home especially when doing an official trip, it feels nice to be pampered .

Visited Kovalam for the first weekend of June as rains were expected and they didn't disappoint us. A beautiful property and the view is awesome, they have lawns as well and walking area near the sea and a lagoon where you can enjoy the sea along with lagoon and be around nature. It is just picture perfect and the hotel... More

Visited this property for a short trip of two nights to Kovalam. The hotel is tucked away in a hill overlooking the sea. Staff as usual in all Taj properties were excellent except for the front desk who sounded rude sometimes as if they were doing a favor. All other staffs starting from house keeping to all the restaurants and... More

Beautiful property but would need to be maintained properly. The hotel has a location advantage, its stunning, has a lagoon within the property and its lush green. Little rustic in places but the overall ambiance is fairly good. The rooms could be hard to get to in the rainy season as its a little uphill hence the traveler might want... More

The ambience is Simply superb. The room with the attached swimming pool is awesome. However it lacks privacy. Restaurant is top notch. Since the dessert which I ordered was unavailable, the waiter let me choose whatever desserts I wanted from the buffet table. Staff are very well trained. Even the security guards are polite. Wonderful experience. Will definitely go again.

You want to like it but I didn't. The grounds are beautiful but it is awkward. We had to walk down a very steep slope to our rooms, in the rain. I kept thinking I was going to fall. Then you had to walk back up everytime you wanted to go to the main lobby. It is called a beach... More
