Me and my wife stayed at the Vivanta by Taj, Bekal, Kerala on August 2012.
Its AMAZING!!! :)
Let me tell you in brief and i ll rate accordingly.
Also I have posted some snaps of the resort.
Resort (location) - Excellent! (10/10)
You can see the backwater which joins to the sea. Its a different view.
The whole resort was green as it was drizzling.
Wonderful and unique style architecture.
Rooms - Excellent (10/10)
We stayed in one Twin bed Cottage with sit-out.
The private sit out with bed sized swing with carved celing on top and backwater view was amazing
Staffs - Excellent (10/10)
Neatly dressed with a smiling face. They were there for everything you need.
Special Thanks to Mr. Gopi (who drove the Golf cart). He was very keen in explaining the resort and taking us thru the resort as it was drizzling.
Food - Excellent (10/10)
Our package was excluding the meals. We had dinner and next day breakfast.
Dinner was buffet. Great for non-veggies, Fish, Chicken, Mutton, Sea food, Live pasta,dosa..etc... ( Sorry! No idea what was the veg stuff )
We took the in-room dining for next day breakfast. We gave the order and it was told that it will be delivered on 10:05 am.
Trust me, when my wife told me the time is 10:05. I heard the bell rang and here its is our breakfast READY !!! :) Perfect timing
They have a very good bar in fact i did not try.
Spa (JIVA) - Good (9/10)
It was said to be one of the biggest of Taj.
I had used only the sauna-steam-jacuzzi. It was good.
Activities - Good (9/10)
Fitness centre, Fishing, Cycling, Swimming pool
Ambiance - Excellent (10/10)
I am sure couples will have a romantic time. Families will have a great time.
Kids have entertainment room and they have cycles to roam around the resort.
Tariff - Good 9/10
If you get everything you need, I think the tariff is decent enough for a stay in Taj ;-)
Time to visit: Any time. (That's what I feel)
Overall our stay at the hotel was extremely pleasant and we had a wonderful holiday. Definitely 10/10.
