A great stay

A business class hotel offering you the best in Taj hospitality. We stayed for two nights and had a wonderful time. Found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Special mention to Fiona Pereira for helping us with valuable advice on things to see & do in Kochi. She was great with the kids too.
