Hotel staff were extremely helpful from the time of arrival to departure -- they help set up transportation and tours. The restaurant was excellent and the chiefs help me with my dietary needs. The hotel is right on the water with a beautiful boardwalk, shops within walking distance as well as the local and private transportation. Highly recommend this hotel;

Had a great time with friends at Taj. Friendly staff, great food, a well maintained bar and a good collection of spirits made it a wholesome experience altogether. Though the property is a bit old, it keeps the standard of Taj. Thanks for making it a memorable stay.

It is a five star hotel at four star prices. The service is professional, the amenities are in place and everything works. Lovely Asian food in the Sian restaurant. Bubble cafe overseeing the backwaters serves excellent breakfast buffet. Their dinner menu is just as fine. Recommended dish - Pork chops.

Very worthy of the Taj name and heritage Very clean and well appointed rooms and hassle free booking from trip advisor just minutes before I actually walked in to check in. Will definitely come back for the quality and location

I booked a 7 day trip through Travel Planners, from Cochin to Thiruvanandan including a day in a House Boat, It is worth the money. All Taj Hotels were excellent hotels and Resorts. Enjoyed it thoroughly. Would recommend - Shirane

The In room dining experience was horrible as it took more than 45 mins for the food to come, and I had ordered a normal veg stew with Idiappam. I did not have a choice but to eat and this delayed my sleep time and this subsequently affected my whole experience. Communication ( language) with the 24/7 was a problem... More
