The location of the hotel is excellent and it is truly a hidden gem. It is the best place if you are looking for some quiet time from your regular life. Everything from infrastructure, landscaped gardens, backwater, gym, food and hospitality is superb. We opted for Villa with plunge pool which was spacious enough with soothing interiors. The property has... More

First experience at a Taj and they scored 10 on 10. It was just perfect. The room, service, ambience, private beach... everything. We were celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary and they surprised us by decorating our room with flowers while we were out. And also a cake. Hospitality 10/10. Thanks Taj.

This was our second stay at Taj Bekal. The property is beautiful and well maintained .. However the last time around we found the service to be lacking a certain personal touch. The staff was aloof and stand offish. We had provided this feedback and we were pleasantly surprised this time. There as a marked change in the service standards... More

This hotel was a mixed bag with some elements that were outstanding and the best we have experienced whist staying at many taj hotels and some very very disappointing. Firstly the amazing points; the rooms with the private pools outside baths and day bed are the finest we have experienced (we asked to be downgraded to this room as the... More

Taj Bekal is a hidden gem for those who savour a quite place without the multitude of tourists milling about. Our room was by the sea and we had a private plunge pool which was very handy. The roar of the ocean during the monsoon was a great lullaby and the day bed great place to lounge in. The breakfast... More

A lovely space to unwind and relax. The rooms are nice and spacious. The hotel has access to a beautiful beach where the waters are a bit rough so not idea for swimming but great for relaxing and taking it all in. As always the service is simply great! The care your given is second to none!

Property could'nt have been better! The villa we stayed was with a pool, an outdoor swing, outdoor shower area and a sit out. The food was simply superb and the buffet breakfast had a variety of sumptuous spread. My wife and I took the 2 hour session at the Jiva spa. It was a lifetime experience. I have been to... More

The resort is one of the best I have stayed...The room with the plunge pool was the best experience.. Their beach and back water view is best of both worlds...The staff are very accommodative.. However unlike other Taj properties in Kovallam, Malabar, Varkala it lacks some personal touch...Overall a very happy satisfying relaxing trip...
