For starters,this was a last minute plan for us, a family of two adults & 2 kids. All we had managed to book was a garden facing twin room. On reaching, our triple requests for an early check-in, upgrade to a king sized bed and a sea view room were all met with! John from front office facilitated all this & took us on a tour of the property. The pre-monsoon weather of end May made it very pleasant all through.
The breakfasts and dinners were awesome and the senior chef and his team took care to see the kids had good choices. Arbindo Ghosh on the F&B team was always on hand for a lovely chat and to cater to us. My husband loved the gym and the spa facilities. I went for a yoga session which was held early morning in a beautiful setting! The travel desk offers reasonable choices.
Overall the property is very beautiful & well maintained, a lovely boat ride in the lagoon was also on offer. At check out, I was pleasantly surprised & bit embarrassed as well when I was handed a box of cookies that I had remarked were wonderful. Unfortunately I forget the name of the staff member who showed this caring side.
Kovalam beach is few minutes away by car, and most tourist sites in Trivandrum are not more than 10 or so km away. The drivers from Taj, particularly Shan are very helpful and well informed.
