Travelers' Choice
Taj - Green Cove Resort & Spa, Kovalam, is delightful in many ways. While to some it is one of the finest seaside resorts in Kerala, to others it is an amazing backwater retreat. And there are those that love it for its hill resort layout. Now it's all that and more. There's a nice new buzz all over. In the renewed cottages and villas, the nouvelle restaurants, the high energy bar, and the spa where you'll go Ah!

General manager Poonam Singh Veliath and his right hand Nagaraju Attivaram do an excellent job managing this hotel and they avoid all the pitfalls these places in tropical resorts display too often. The place is splendid: it overlooks the sea in the middle of lush tropical vegetation. Service is quick and efficient, the staff are friendly and helpful, which shows a steady hand at the helm. For instance my phone broke down and within minutes there was a maintenance guy in the room to fix it. They carry you around the property in electric golf carts that arrive almost immediately. There is a nice pool, the beach is endless but swimming not recommended due to currents. The food is very good (the classical coffee shop and two other restaurants I did not have the time to test) The massage at the SPA was perfect and we enjoyed two days of rest in the middle of noisy, vibrant, rambunctious but exhausting South India ! I will definitely be back

Hotel's Favorite
It was our first time in Kovalam and Taj Green Cove made it a memorable one with their warm hospitality. We arrived at the resort by 3 pm and the staff welcomed us with tender coconut water and sea shell garlands. We stayed for three nights in a garden facing cottage which is quite big with an outdoor sitting area offering views of the lawns. The entire resort area is surrounded by greenery and there is a lagoon within the property where we had the complimentary boat ride in the evening. A part of the resort is along the coastline and one can view the amazing beauty of the sunset and the Arabian Sea. Breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet is served in the Jasmine bay restaurant with a wide variety of delicious vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. The restaurant BAIT specialise in seafood and offers breathtaking views of both the lagoon and the sea simultaneously. We tried Kingfish in Bait and it was one of my favourite sea food dish till date. Complimentary tea/coffee with delectable cookies, cakes, fritters, puffed rice etc is served to all guests in the evening by the seaside accompanied with live music. The resort also arranges various activities for the children, viz, Archery, kite flying etc in the evening which our kid enjoyed thoroughly. The entire team of Taj Green Cove is very professional and looked after us very well during our stay. The hotel is child friendly and our kid enjoyed a lot during the stay. Special thanks to Jasmine, Mugal Kalita, Pradeep, Venigopal, Md Tausif, Nikki, Shivaramakrishnan, Krishna, Prakash Mahato, Anuraj, Sanjeev and the entire team of Taj for making our stay a memorable one. We'll definitely be staying in Taj Green Cove to experience such a warm hospitality once again in our next visit to Kovalam.

We stayed at Taj Kovalam to celebrate our anniversary and right from the time we landed at Trivandrum and till the time we returned to Trivandrum airport we were pampered :-) We had booked the room with the pool and sea view and it was sheer bliss. Jasmine at Front Office guided us to plan our three days stay well to maximise our short visit. The icing on the cake was sun downer at the laws adjacent to Bait restaurant. The music the snacks and the sun set was a heavenly mix. We would like to acknowledge Jasmine, Krishna, Naresh, Venkatesh, Pragati, Tanisha and Shahdab and all the other staff members whose name we missed out. Thank you for the memories of a lifetime. The spa facility was out of the world, thank you Ruth and Sontana.

We made our 2 night booking through Taj Malabar and were transported by the hotel car, chauffeured by a very polite and cheerful Sarath, from Kumarakom to Kovalam. On arrival at Taj Green Cove, we were greeted very warmly and pleasantly by Jasmine, Shiva and Vinpugal, who insisted that we dine at the restaurant before checking in. At the restaurant, once again we were welcomed very warmly by the Exec Chef Mayur Ramachandran, who fed us well, thank you all for the courtesy extended. The Room was adequately furnished, with a reasonable view of the sea/coast. High Tea was served at the beach near the Bait restaurant, where once again Jasmine ensured we were well looked after. The property has plenty of green spaces, which is pleasing to the eye. All buffet meals were consumed at the Jasmine Bay restaurant by the pool, where one could choose between a substantial spread of both Veg/Non-Veg starters, soup, main courses and desserts. The Restaurant team of Nikki, Tanisha, Raj, Venkatesh, Krishna, Pramod amongst others, provided us excellent and prompt service and Chef Munish and E/Chef Mayur were also available to provide any special meal preferences, thank you. HK and room cleaning/replenishment was well taken care of by Vimal and Senthil was our designated Buggy driver. We were also greeted very warmly by Mr R. Nischal, GM at the High Tea the next day, and had an excellent interaction with him. Overall, the courtesy, warmth, friendliness and hospitality extended by Mr R. Nischal, GM, E/Chef Mayur, Jasmine and all the staff we interacted with was extremely satisfying and we wish them good luck, thank you all.

I am visiting this property soon again. Though I love all Taj properties as every staff is so humble and so polite. Would recommend Taj over any other 5 star. Took kovalam has super rooms the entire property is so well maintinaed and specially the food at Bait was amazing. Must visit Bait if any one is in trivendrum.

We were greeted with leis and coconuts before being shown to our lovely rooms, complete with a terrace overlooking the lush forest all around. The resort has a lovely large pool and deck area for lounging about. The lagoon which is accessed either on foot or by buggy is perfect for a boat ride around to spot bird life. Sunset Point overlooks the Indian Ocean and tea and snacks are offered every day at 530 for an hour. Bait has excellent seafood. I understand that the spa is also heavenly however I did not take advantage of it.
