Taj Bekal is a new property situated with fabulous access to the Kappil beach at the side of the Kappil river backwaters. Designed in a beautiful manner for best access to the water bodies, the hotel is a comfortable luxury stay with signature Taj hospitality. The hotel has good outdoor activities and a great staff - helpful and courteous.

Service provided by Taj Vivanta exceeded all expectations. We had booked ourselves a room with a private swimming pool. The room was very spacious & the pool very good. Host of free (fishing, indoor games, cycling) & paid (shooting, bird watching etc.) available. Staff was very courteous & had great attention to detail.
