I stayed here for 3 Nights in the month of August. The hotel is indeed a paradise in the country of Gods. I wanted a Plunge room, but due to nonavailability, had to settle in a Tower room, though I was shifted the next day.
This resort indeed beats all your expectations and proves out to be far more than what you expect. The tower rooms provide a amazing view of the backwater and the sea. The Balcony has a large swinging divan, where you can simply spend the whole of your evening, provided someone helps you with the swings, which in my case was my three year old kid :). The food was just "all right" though the service was excellent and the staff ever friendly. The staff will go out of their way to help you with every minor needs that you may have. But this I can definitely say is a usual Taj signature.
I was a bit disappointed though as the hotel does not support all dongle networks, though this made my better half and kid quite happy!!! And in the evening you get nothing to do except spend time in the room or the restaurant.
But daytime was fun and the Plunge room more than makes up for any grudges you may have. The SPA as boasted by them is the biggest SPA in this part of the world and it does seem to be, being on a sprawling 2 and half acres.
It was a lifetime experience, and we liked the resort so much that we never bothered to visit the nearby Bekal fort too. The drive from Kasargod to Bekal is amazing and at this time of year the only visible color was GREEN.
A must visit, if you have a three day holiday for relaxing and rejuvenating.
