Porched up on the slopes are the guest rooms most of them them have an individual balcony which actually makes the place worth. there is actually a walk... More

We returned to the hotel after an absence of two years, we worried that things would have changed, how wrong we were. Our taxi, arranged with the hotel, was at the airport to pick us up, always welcome after an overnight flight. We were greeted by one of the most pleasant and friendly members of staff we have ever had.... More

Visiting India for the first time on Business I expected 'standard fare' from my stay. I couldn't have been more wrong. From the moment I arrived to my departure I continued to get pleasant surprises - room upgrade to sea view, extras with meals..and a Bon Voyage chocolate cake on the last evening. The staff were wonderful and accomodating. Nothing... More

This property by the Kovalam beach is nicely located on a hillside and is constructed on different levels in a lush garden. The rooms need a bit of upgrading to be 5 star. Friendly staff and nice food & beverage outlets.

Stayed at this Taj property in September as a part of their Monsoon offer. When we reached the hotel, (we had booked for 2 Sea view Superior charm rooms) and were allocated the rooms, I was surprised to see that the sea view was hardly there from the rooms (these are the 2 series rooms) and there was not enough...

over pricey compare to their service. Very limited option for veg people. Location & rooms of hotels are ok kind. Their bed is very small. Beach view is good. Lots of coconut trees are there. Their complementary boat ride is good. Transport is pathetic.

We stayed at Taj Kovalam for a quick 2day break and it was totally worth it! Service was good, and so was the dining. we highly recommend the suite room with lap pool, which is guaranteed to lift your spirits, as it is set overlooking the beautiful landscape and the sea touching the skies. Thank you Taj, for a great... More
