We had an excellent stay in Taj Bekal. The property is very tastefully done. The staff and service is very good. The food was average. Given that you spend a majority of the time inside the property, the food needs to be better.

The whole experience was wonderful. The property is beautiful, and the staff are very pleasant. Do opt for a room with a view of the backwaters. the food was average. i would recommend eating at town center eateries for some good local food.

We were upgraded to a suite room - included a dining area, sit in area, pantry, sit out and a massive bedroom and allowed an early check in at 9 am, though we arrived at 7 AM. We were given one way transfer free. The... More

The most nique things about this hotel is also their own backwaters and the adjoining beach. They sent us a complimentary cake for our anniversary which i thought could have been of a better quality but... More
