Dress code at Vivanta by Taj and Kovalam restaurants

We're bound for the Taj and wondered what the dress code is for women at the Taj restaurants and generally in and around Kovalam...ie do women have to cover their shoulders etc?? Can men wear shorts at the Taj restaurants?

Don't know about dress code for the Taj, but around Kovalam the usual holiday attire is OK. Although ladies will attract a lot of male attention if they wear anything to revealing, you also get a lot of young males taking photos on their mobiles on the beaches.

Hello

Both the Taj and Leela are holiday hotels so most attire is acceptable.

I would suggest that you dress as you would at home

Please note that it can sometimes be a little chilly in the evenings.

Hi bocasecreto,

You may casually relax in Kovalam, as I am not aware of any specific dress codes around. As a mature woman, you would definitely know to carry yourself and please do not worry about the codes. Kovalam is a matured destination and very tourist friendly. So being casual will not be seen as an issue. You need to get rightly dressed, when you plan to visit the city, so as to avoid unnecessary stares. In Kovalam, you will never have an issue because I have seen more foreigners than localites. So, dress to your comfort.

Regards

You are on holiday so you wear what you like but when going to restaurants its nice to dress nicely for dinner as opposed to shorts but then shorts are ok for breakfast
