Ferries plying and glorious mornings and evenings are picturesque. Rooms are well appointed but a bit small. Food is excellent. Pizza's and Indian cuisine... More

Unclean rooms, toilets, cramped layouts, torn carpets and what not!!! Not recommended We were booked for a larger room as we re 4 in number.2 + 2 kids. We were asked to move from room to room and the amenities are very poorly kept . No cleanliness . Not becoming of Taj. A disgrace to Taj.

Excellent Location, Courteous Staff and Lovely Breakfast. Rooms are on smaller than usual. Most disappointing part was the bed, which is only 5 feet.

Quality of food is awesome both in 24 hour coffee shop and in bar. service quality of staff is very good as in other TAJ hotels. Far better than their premium property, Vivanta TAJ Malabar. Went all the way to Vivanta TAJ as this hotel do not have JIVA SPA. Food taste in Gateway, Ernakulam is extremely good and service... More

Excellent stay at this property, the breakfast had a wide spread including the local cuisine which was great to have. The bar was well served too. The free sunset cruise was a surprise and did enjoy the scenic ocean and the marine drive.
