We were very happy with the treatment at your facilities during the stay this was our first stay at Bekal Lalit Resort and it was much more than what we have expected. 3nights and 4days were amazing, the staffs were excellent and up to the mark. The Traditional welcome was excellent. Food was amazing; we had food upon our request which was really great thanks to the chef.


We loved the stay. Thanks for giving us the 3 different style of romantic dinner experiences each night which was mind blowing. The Resort has got a lovely location clam and its a best place to relax. The Spa experience was nice. The Room was so perfect with all the facilities and the view from the balcony was superb.


I liked the theme of LALIT which was perfect by providing us an individual Holiday Host who looked after all the requirements which was needed by us.


I take this opportunity to thank all the team that made our stay a good time, comforting, secure and wonderful.

We decided on Bekal for our honeymoon as we both wanted an off beat location by the sea side. The Lalit at Bekal fit the bill perfectly. Beautiful lush green lawns dotted with coconut tree and views of the river from the room was perfect and breathtaking. What really impressed us was the discrete and perfect service from the staff. My particular thanks to the GM Mr. Mishra and our perfect holiday host Saiju. The staff was fabulous and we are pleasantly surprised when the Chef came to visit us asking for our food preference for the next meal. Have stayed at many properties, but never experienced personalised service... Kudos to the team!

The beach was private (even though it is a public, hardly any souls there) and the romantic dinner on houseboat was another must have experience. Stayed for 3 nights and were really sad that we had to go. Well, planning on another trip there soon... C ya then guys :)

From the moment of arrival the entire staff at LaLit Bekal went out of their way to make our stay perfect. Nothing was too much trouble - but it was all achieved with a quiet level of confidence and sophistication often sought but seldom found.

The property is set in 26 acres of very well tended garden, at the heart lies the restaurant, bar, a decent sized pool and a games room.

The LaLit has a first class spa, offering a wide range of treatments and a superb relaxation area, ideal for idling an afternoon away following a massage, body wrap or Ayurvedic treatment.

Having just 30 odd rooms the hotel never feels crowded and during our visit guests respected the privacy and quietude of others.

LaLit tailors their service and facilities to meet the guests' needs, so whether it's kayaking or dinner on the resident houseboat; table tennis or a guided tour of the Ayurvedic garden, all you have to do is ask.

The food defies description. A team of nine chefs create the most stunning meals, cooking everything from fresh, local produce. As the LaLit Bekal is a spa hotel the Head Chef takes pride in creating a choice of healthy delicious options, although diners are not aware that the lovely dishes, whether Keralan, North Indian, or fusion, are actually not piling on the pounds.

Again, as the LaLit is a spa hotel, the emphasis is on health and wellbeing - guests who prefer a G & T before dinner and a brandy afterwards will be disappointed as there are no spirits available, though wine and beer are, albeit it at a very high price. This isn't a 'drinkers' hotel, but we thought of it as giving our livers a holiday as we chose to detox and make this new found healthier option part of our holiday.

The LaLit Bekal caters for all tastes, it's an unusual hotel as its aim is to meet the guests' needs no matter what they are. The owner has resisted any temptation to build additional accomodation, which gives the whole property an airy, open aspect.

Would we go again?
Definately

Dear Guest,

Namaskar…

Thank you for taking time to give a detailed review of your two weeks stay at The Lalit Resort & Spa Bekal and for sharing the fabulous experience and appreciating the cuisine and attentive service you received throughout. Relaxing ambiance paired with personalized yet unobtrusive service is what we always aim to offer to all our guests and your appreciation of our efforts is really encouraging.

Luxury with simplicity and elegance combining traditional aesthetics and modern comforts is the concept we have used in designing all the guest accommodations and this surely appealed a lot to you.

We encourage all the guests to spend time in the spa and at in house activities. Both have a magical setting befitting a resort and an excellent ambiance to relax and rejuvenate. It is really special to know that you thoroughly enjoyed the services at our Resort which includes our in house activities and the spa.

With your superb feedback on our cuisine, we are very confident now that our efforts in offering gastronomic experiences to our guests have been successful. The entire team including our Chef is ecstatic to receive your feedback on service and grateful to you for acknowledging our efforts.

I am grateful for the personalized note written to me with valuable feedbacks and suggestions which I have noted and have started working towards the same. We do understand the inconvenience caused to few guests due to our liquor policy but the concept of the Resort and support from the patrons like you, the beer and wine concept have worked well as of now.

There are more dining, cultural and adventurous experiences for you to indulge in on your next visit to The Lalit Resort & Spa Bekal. All of us look forward to welcome you back on your next visit to Bekal.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for such a wonderful review.

We are proud to have guests like you for appreciating our team members at The Lalit Resort & Spa Bekal, who are delivering the ' beyond expectations' experience. The team will be thrilled to receive your comments and the generous appreciation.

Resort is indeed an island of 26 acres surrounded by three sides by river 'Nombili' and of sprawling lush green gardens - ideal to relax and unwind. We have ensured that during the opening phase efforts were put in terms of facilities, architect, interior and landscaping and an equal attention was given in conceptualizing the services offered. We focused on personalized service training for the entire staff and specially on F & B team to come up an attractive customized menu after a 1-2-1 meeting with our guests which is continued till today. We are very happy to know that you were impressed with the cuisine at our Resort.

We are all thrilled to have a The Lalit Resort & Spa Bekal ambassador in you and entire team here looks forward to welcome you back on your next visit. We are sure the magical flavours will bring you back soon.

Warm regards,

Dilip Mishra

I have been a member of the Lalit Loyaltyfor the past many years and hence I am biased towards the group and this hotel endorsed my faith in the group. Right from the time they pick you up from the airport to the time they leave you at the airport their hospatility makes you feel like a king. The concept of personalised service is now prevalent with many hotels but the concept of personalised chef is unique and most welcome. The most important thing was the staff did not attend to you as if it was their duty but because they enjoyed it. Special mention to Sanesh my holiday host.
I would like to thank the chef BIJU for the mouth watering dishes he made be it continental or Indian. All the dishes were just excellent. The food at any of the Lalit hotels have always been good but Biju takes the cake at least for me.
