The property is very beautiful...located on the hill slope with amazing landscape...Beautiful rooms with either balconies or decks or verandah one can feel totally relaxed. Beautiful food..especially the beachside shaks and the romantic dinner was a great experience...the cultural programs in the evening were also entertaning....the pool is also very good

We first went here three years ago on our first visit to India and wanted to return. We were worried I case it wasn't as good as we remembered but we needn't have been concerned, it was marvellous.
The monsoon finished the day before we arrived which was if it was meant for us. The three nights we stayed were as good as we remembered.
The site is incredible, only lacking access to a decent beach and the sea. The room beautiful. The food first class. But over all these must rank the helpful staff. I forgot my swimming goggles and I swear they would have driven to Thrivandrum to get me some if I didn't insist that leave it. However within minutes of me getting to the pool a pair was found by Raj, the pool man. Typical of the place.
There's so much more of India and the world I want to see, but we will return here some day!

Room Tip: A room with a balcony gives you a view, but a garden room gives you a courtyard to fall asleep in!

Attended a family wedding here, what a venue. On the first night, we had a buffet by the sea. It was a magical setting. The second night was just as romantic, with the tables set up by the infinity pool. The food was a mix of Indian and European and the seafood restaurant, Bait, is superb. We dined there and at the pool restaurant, but not at Curries. There is a wide selection to choose from at breakfast. The bedrooms are spacious as are the bathrooms, with separate bathtub and shower stall. The staff are wonderful, and cannot do enough for you. It's quite near Trivandrum and the airport.

We had a wonderful time at the Taj on our honeymoon. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and made our stay extra special. We loved our room with private pool that overlooked the resort. At night we had a view of the fishing boats twinkling in the distance - beautiful. The yoga classes were good for various levels. The walk to lighthouse beach is a lovely walk, that takes 25min or so, past two bays. We also enjoyed the nearby fishing village by tuk tuk. The resort was a beautful end to our honeymoon - highly recommended.

This is a very pretty resort here in Kerala. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly, nothing is too much trouble. For example I asked for some more moisturiser and Sujay came back with 10 bottles. I mentioned to Raj by the pool that I had locked myself out of my room and by the time I had finished breakfast Raj had turned up with a new key and i hadnt even asked him to do that!! The only reason I haven't given this resort a 5 is because you have to ring up for your fruit to be delivered to your room and it took 3 calls and 24 hrs later it arrived, but that was on the first day for the last 3 days everything has been wonderful. Special thanks to the staff in the restaurant as well as they have looked after me brilliantly.

Kerala is a place where nature is at its best , which has a lot in this property though could have been managed better and the rest has nothing to say ' Whoa '. Better rooms and suits are situated in quite height, elders will definitely have problem in climbing so many stairs. The stuff were helpful to some extent and Dy. Manager, the lady, of the hotel was very helpful and coperative to the last minute.
