The sea is not swimmable and its rough but the beach is quite pretty. the property is well laid out with awesome plants and greenery and good amount of activities like kayaking,... More

The best room Ive ever stayed in. Surrounded by nature, with a beach and ocean on one side and backwaters on the other, this is truly a dream resort to stay in! If there is ever an option to go back, I will take it gleefully!

Definitely one of the best places I have ever stayed in. Firstly the property is better than what they have portrayed on their website. An amazing place to stay - the cottages are ideal for honeymooners or for small families. There is a nice little river that flows through the property into bekal beach few hundred metres away. The location... More

Excellent stay . Especially when you travel with kids. They will love this place. Backwater kayaking is one of the activity that you should not miss. Excellent type of rooms especially the one with a plunge pool which will steal away your heart.

We stayed at Taj Bekal for three nights, and our group comprised of elderly parents, adults, teenagers and toddlers. The resort is located where the backwaters and the sea merge, which provides a fantastic backdrop to a relaxing holiday. The spa is huge and the treatments are simply outstanding. There are many activities which kept the kids entertained, like cycling,... More
