We visited Ta Bekal in August 2022. From the time of the arrival to the time of departure, we were treated extremely well. We got an early check in and a late check out that we had requested. The quality of the food was far superior to most other 5 star resorts that i've been to. Arun and Amitabh at the backwater's cafe took fantastic care of us. The property itself is just magnificient. The backwaters to one side and the sea to the other just takes your breath away. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.

Taj Bekal Stay was nothing less than a delight. The property is right at the beach with a blend of the backwaters as well which makes it very unique. The unique architecture highlighted by the Kettuvallam makes the property look even more beautiful. Our special thanks and gratitude to the entire staff and team of the Hotel which left no stone unturned to ensure delight for all folks. Have stayed in almost all Taj Properties in India but yet to meet such a humble and dedicated GM .Mr Amit Singh not only was there daily at the High Team engaging with all guests and making us feel at home but also was very kind in giving local recommendations.Perfect example of leading from the front. The experience of check-in was absolutely seamless with Manu and team getting the fastest check in done in all the stays in Taj. Kudos to the housekeeping team for keeping the rooms spic and span in such a spread out property and during rains . The F&B team led by Sharan and Pashupati really believe in Seva Parmo Dharma . Their hospitality and humility was really touching.The Venezuelan Mousse was literally the best we have ever had . Khow Suey and Thai curry prepared by the Chefs was just delicious and unexpected in Kerala.Compliements to all the chefs for there efforts. The Jiva Spa is not only the largest but has the most professional and competent team made us feel very relaxed. Channi was the best masseuse we have come across and Vijesh’s service was impeccable. Overall an incredible experience ,beautiful property and amazing team lead by an incredible ,humble on ground leader. Thanks to all the folks in the team whose name was missed from the Baggi drivers to the team at every place it was just a weekend to remember thanks to everyone’s effort and hospitality. PS : Gardening team is doing a superb job in the upkeep and maintaining the flora and greenery of the property. Regards , Jalaj Pawah Jalajpawah@gmail.com

We booked two villas the premium villa with plunge pool n sit out as well as the deluxe villa with plunge pool . . And my Bias is the premium villa as it’s quite private n has the view of the River / backwater . . The resort was almost in full capacity but still in these villas you can experience quiet , it’s strategically located away from the rooms . . Now the real stars of the property . . First a big thanks to Arun , with over 100 pax he was still our one point contact for all meals . . He planned all our meals and kept the whole team informed . . Everyone knew us n our orders . . The whole FnB team were excellent, my smallest request of Karingali water was actioned immediately. . Chef Sandhu n his legendary waffles converted me into a waffle person . . Chef Nandu with whom I casually asked for a certain type of Dosa ensured I got it the next day . . Isn’t this service where a casual enquiry is actioned upon . . The front office Manager Manu is sweet guy with whom we exchanged pleasantries with . . And I have to say this is by far one of the best resorts in India ( as in most you cannot avoid the cacophony n cawing )

Well designed luxurious property. Expansive and pure relaxation. Great visuals, fantastic team and delicious food. What else one needs for a great vacation. Highlights was the visit to the Jiva spa. Potli massage was divine and a must. Expensive yes but no regrets

Starting with the check-in process, we got a very warm welcome from Ms. Gopika, Ms. Supari & Ms. Jyoti. We thank you for giving us early check in and also upgrade in our villa category. We were staying at Villa No. 484 for 3 Nights at Premium Villa with Plunge Pool where Mr. Pramod gave us Villa tour and explained every single detail about the property. It was super spacious with lots of greenery around it, super clean and it has a beautiful boat house style theme and it was one of the best rooms we have ever stayed with any Taj Hotels. We sincerely thank you every single person for providing us the medicines whenever we asked for. A big thanks to the managers at Taj Bekal for instantly providing us the Vehicle to take us to the Clinic when my 5 months old kid got really sick. Special thanks to the Chauffeur Mr. Vinod for driving us to the clinic even when his shift was over couple of hours ago & Special thanks to Mr. Rocky (who was on his 1st day duty at Taj Bekal) for accompanying us and taking special care of me and my kid by holding the umbrella for us while he himself was getting wet in the rain, we would never forget such a great gesture. Coming to the Spa, we thank Mr. Sudeep at spa for understanding our issue and kept rescheduling the spa timings and making us all so comfortable in whatever way he can. I also thank him for providing yoga poses for my back ache. About the spa session, it was a world class spa service from Mr. Anoop and Mr. Deepu, you guys are not just amazing at doing spa but also very much entertaining and friendly. We thank Mr. Bouna for showing us entire property very calmly in the buggy. He was so very well-mannered, calm and had a sweet smile on his face all the way. We also thank you for helping us all the way to the villa. All the buggy riders were really helpful. Every single staff went 1 step ahead for making our stay so much better and provided us next level of hospitality. We thank each and every person for making our trip so much comfortable and memorable.

This being my third Visit I would still love to be here time and agin just because of the peace and Greenery within the resort, The entire team during every visit though different but each time they have been excellent, This speaks of Taj training program of their staff. Yes The resort needs to provide some more choice of Veg North Indian Cuisine on their manu, But what ever is offered is really good. The Spa Team is really excellent. It was really AAA + experience, A real Spa experience is one when half way through one goes to Sleep and get up right at the end, of the Spa treatment, this was the experience on both the day. Great trained team. Now I must give some important suggestion, Housekeeping needs to clean all the Fans, Smoke Detectors, Sprinklers and Ac wend at Back water Cafe, in some of the rooms as they are dirty and does not speak good abt Taj Standard. Room service team should be little faster in clearing the rooms. But overall great experience , surely will come again to this place.

We would like to thank Manu, Misbah, Pashupati and all the wonderful staff at Bekal for making our stay incredibly memorable for us. Manu recommended some absolutely stunning trips which we were glad we visited. Misbah ensured we were comfortable as far our stay was concerned. We enjoyed some absolutely amazing food as Pashupati made sure we got what we needed. We most definitely would visit Taj Bekal once again to enjoy their outstanding hospitality 😍
