Airy, unostentatious, luxe. Despite a luxuriance of design details and elements (from the cultures and traditions of Kerala, as well as India’s colonial heritage) the hotel radiates a sense of space that is uncluttered and effortless (with service and amenities to match).

Amazing drinks served at the bar... thanks to Mithun and his amazing cocktails... food is average and spread can be better. Overall good experience that could have been superb only if the food too was better... will surely return... More

We had my sister-in-laws wedding at the Vivanta by Taj Bekal. What a property. Perfect for family gatherings. The wedding wouldn't have been so beautiful if it was somewhere else.

If you need to get away from busy life and just relax watching some sun, playing in sand and good afternoon sleep this is the place to be in. Excellent property to give time to urself and re discover. Nice food, nice pool and nice spa, everything great abt it.

We stayed at Vivanta by Taj Bekal for my birthday for 3 nights. It was an awesome experience. Their villas are very nice. The staff is very polite, courteous and helpful. We had a wonderful experience. Will recommend if you want a relaxing holiday, as there is not much you can do outside the resort except visit an old fort!
