Vivanta by Taj - Bekal, is one of their best kept secrets till date, you will discover some of the most amazing pleasures and experiences life has to offer. Seek the backwaters and you will find it running across the property as seamlessly as the Kappil beach shoreline touches the manicured lawns and landscaped gardens. See the local flavor of North Kerala combined with Balinese influences in laterite stone sculptures.
the room - the stylish villas and rooms with Kettuvallam houseboat motifs woven in Balinese design and laterite lined exteriors spread over landscaped gardens which embrace the backwaters and kiss the Kappil beach shore. we choose the premium indulgence with a private pool, which over looks the backwater. it really makes you feel Relaxed, Refreshed, Energized. the little splash pool in the room is just so superb, that you just don't want to get out. the only concern here was that the backyard didn't seem to be much secured, it was more open, & this could disturb your privacy. the room was clean spacious n very luxurious. it also had a day bed in the form of a swing where you could just laze out.
the bathroom was huge, with his & hers basin, indoor shower and an outdoor rain shower, & also an outdoor tub, which beautifully lit up at night.
latitude - the restaurant - Be pleasantly surprised to find some of Bekal’s most celebrated food offerings just around the corner. Latitude - the multi cuisine restaurant, with an accent on regional Kerala cuisine.. they have a wide spread of the buffets. the breakfast is very energizing, with fresh fruits n juices, south n north indian style preparations. the food here is very delicious, the variety would just tempt you to go beyond your capacity.
the staff - always smiling, caring & ready to help. they will make sure that you really are very comfortable with all the amenities & facilities provided in your room. be it the housekeeping staff or the room service, always there for your help, n to fulfill your needs & requirements. call for the buggy on day 1, n the attendant will drive you around the property to give you the feel of the spread of the property.
other activities - one can go kayaking in the backwaters, explore the bekal fort, enjoy an evening walk on the kappil beach & watch the beautiful sun set. you even have live cooking on certain days. the fitness center you can head to, to burn off those extra calories, the jiva spa, its the best. it really rejuvenates you.
we went there for my birthday celeberation, they really made it very special for us, with room decoration n a complimentary birthday cake. it was my 1st stay at a taj property, & they reaaly live up to their standards & name. Enjoy the sea breeze. Lush gardens. Swinging palms. Serene backwaters. And nestled across 26 acres their cottages and villas play hide & seek. Sit under swinging day beds. Stretch on deck chairs. Explore open spaces which are refreshingly breezy.
Very modern. Very in.
thank you TAJ ...!!!
