The best 7 day stay, in our month on Southern India. Their restaurants were excellent. Staff could not put themselves out more for you. Ayurveda massage at their spa 'to die for'. Their jewellery store was sooo impressive & such quality you could not leave empty handed. At our request, they would drive us in the hotel Range Rover to the local ferry terminal, where, for 3 rupees we would go to Fort Cochin or mainland Ernakulun, etc & catch auto rickshaws around exploring everywhere. Then back to 'heaven on earth', lol, the Taj. Was amazing!!!
