The staff from the manager to the bell boy were so professional in every respect. The manager, Mr. Jayanta Das and his assistant, Mr. Noyal made every effort to ensure the best vacation .... More

The property is excellent..it draws from nature and is mesmerizing. It falls short on food. Kerala is known for its cuisine and this property doesnt do justice to it The Head Chef is excellent. As we were dissatisfied, he prepared a meal for us which was superbly delicious. But the chefs who handle the day to day menu unfortunately dont... More

There's cycles, boat rides, ducks and rabbits... More

I can't say enough great things about this property and the staff! We were greeted like family upon our arrival and our departure made me a little teary-eyed as the staff and general manager lined up to see us off. The staff was so sweet and beyond helpful. The meals were amazing. The breakfast buffet was wonderful overlooking the property's... More

This is a highly recommended place for introducing your kids to wonders of nature. There are fishing classes, pottery making, a mini-zoo, a bird sanctuary, great lagoon. Then there is the houseboat experience in the evening around the Vembanad Lake. The cottages are excellent placed around the lagoon and the suites are traditional luxury. The staff is one of the...

We stayed at the Taj Kumarakom for 2 nights recently, with kids. It's a nicely laid-out property, with a lagoon/lake in the middle and villas around it. The villas are very comfortable, with a large bedroom and a living / work area. Plenty of space for an extra bed as well, which we needed. The bathrooms are large and well-appointed,... More
