          Arnab S
          We are planning a 3 Nights stay at Taj Malabar during our fifth wedding anniversary in August. We will be travelling with our twin 3 year old boys. I have the following questions: 1. When trying to book I can find this "Pay 2 Stay 3" package offered during the period. But these are only offered for the lowest category "charm" rooms. Why is this not offered for the sea view rooms? 2. This package additionally includes half-board at Pepper/Pavilion restaurants. Plus a 20% discount on F&B, spa, etc. It also mentions a sunset cruise. But isn't this cruise complementary to all guests, irrespective of the above package? 3. I find the heritage rooms lot bigger (42 sqm vs 26 sqm for the other charm room type). So, are these better for small kids who tend to run around and need more space? 4. You also have a "heritage sea view" room type. Are these rooms also located at the heritage wing and are these on higher floors? Unfortunately, I don't see the Pay 2 Stay 3 package for these rooms. 5. What activities do you offer for 3 year olds? Thanks. Arnab
