we actually travelled during X-mas in 2013, so this review is long overdue! we booked last minute, so our room wasn't all that great, but the hotel grounds are elevated from the beach, so we got a great view of some tropical canopy and landscape outside the room. The best part of the hotel was the private access beach, which... More

What a feeling to looking out to endless view of green paradise and Ocean from my private pool at Taj Kovalam. Truly we found another paradise on earth after staying in such luxury but still in middle if nature. Life seems more meaningful to get so close to nature. The most beautiful thing that my wife and kids simply loved... More

Very nice room, well trained and friendly staff. Superior kitchen in main restaurant and in beachside famous Bait restaurant. Spacious rooms, well maintained. Poor standard Wifi, even premium is poor at beach resto and bar. Prices are given without 19,5% extra charges, take care!

I have travelled the world and stayed in many incredible hotels but this is probably the best service I have ever encountered. The staff can not do enough for you but not in an annoying way. Their attitude (in their words) is that if the guest isn't happy about something then they are not doing their job properly. They are... More

The hotel was lovely, and the staff were great. However, the pool was full of noisy families and there was no areas to relax that were child free. If you are a solo traveller or couple looking for a place to chill then this hotel is one that I would avoid. (In the rainy season the beach is also under... More
