Nice resort with activities. However other activities like houseboat cruise and ayurveda massage can be sourced from outside so as not only to get a cheaper deal but also interact with the locals. Secluded rooms are nice with privacy. Logoon side rooms best.

Good property. A nice place to relax and chill out with family for a couple of days. A complementary boat ride and the beautiful lake side view gives you a wonderful experience of Kerala. The serene calm atmosphere surrounding the area is a treat to experience. The cuisine was good on certain days..but the traditional Kerala cuisine available should be... More

Had a great time, very nice room - we had one of the cottages facing the lagoon. Mr Noel, although slightly creepy cause of his villain-like smile, was helpful and accommodating, allowing us to check in earlier. Most of the property is well maintained apart from the pool which was disappointing. The food, although overpriced was good. The breakfast spread... More

I liked the way they have blended nature with modern luxury. Rowing inside the resort was an added bonus. Kids loved the private pool in the cottage. It was very well maintained and had a jacuzzi too. Great staff as always in Taj.

Spend two days at the Taj in Kumarakom, wonderful stay! Room rates reasonable for 5 star like hotel. Beautiful property on the banks of Vembanad Lake, backwaters and views are spectacular! The rooms are spotless and very spacious. Food little pricey, but good! The staff went out of their way to accomodate our needs, would recommend.

And overspiced too. And indifferent service. It is a sin to not get the local items right, because that's what we look forward to when we travel. The place is conveniently located though and the al fresco area is nice.

Was here on a holiday in Diwali...must say it was a wonderful experience. The resort was lit up with dia's at night near the water body, made the entire place look ethereal. The boat rides were sublime, the evening snacks, the games the ambience..a well stocked wine list for fine dining..a beautiful dance performance in the evening.. lazy hammocks around... More
