We stayed at taj bekal for 4 days. It's an awesome location with kappil river meeting sea. Access to beach, indoor games, swimming pool and other activities makes you feel awe about the place. Staff is very cordial, helpful and accommodative. Waffle made by Santu at the restaurant is awesome. All in all awesome experience, feels at home.

The Taj Bekal Resort & Spa is bliss for the battered soul! An experience that leaves you looking forward to the next time you can return to this retreat. The property in itself is nothing short of a piece of paradise where you can enjoy that long awaited, well-deserved laid back vacation you have been dreaming of. Flanked by the backwaters on one side and a rolling beach into the beautiful Arabian Sea, there are views everywhere you turn. Watching the myriad hued sunset over the waves with your loved ones beside leaves you with such a fulfilled feeling. The resort has private access to the beach. The rooms, amenities, fitness equipment, restaurants and grounds are very well maintained, thanks to all the service staff across the resort - be it reception & guest services, housekeeping, restaurant, grounds, spa and everything in between. We were staying in the Deluxe Villa with plunge pool, and it was just the haven we needed, with the pool to our rescue in the hot afternoons! The food over the 5 days that we stayed, was varied in cuisine, locally sourced, including local flavours and so very delicious! What sets Taj apart is the warmth exuded by everyone around and the alacrity with which they respond to each and every need of the guests. When we had to extend our stay due to unforeseen circumstances, the request was accommodated promptly and all effort made to make sure we were comfortable. Special thanks to Jyoti at the reception for making our stay enjoyable and taking care of us right from check-in to checkout. Also Harshnaa at the restaurant for making our dining experience enjoyable with her prompt service and ever ready smile. The spa experience was the best I’ve had so far, thanks to Shilpa & Ajnas-highly recommended! Kudos to the GM Mr. Amit Singh and his well mentored crew for making our stay an unforgettable one, can’t wait to be back!

Quite honestly, this trip was amazing. Right from the moment we entered the reception to when we checked out our stay was incredible. I loved everything about this stay- the food, the service, the room, etc. Our room was gorgeous. It had a small plunge pool in which I spent several hours, a swinging bed, a small tub with a wall of candles behind it and a little shower outside. The inside had tall ceilings and had a comfortable amount of space. The architecture was fabulous. All the staff were very hospitable and helped us whenever it was necessary. The entire campus itself was very well planned out and I enjoyed walking there every evening. The beach was gorgeous and we watched sunset every evening of our stay. The library, the shop, the restaurants, the activities, the greenery - everything was fantastic. My thanks goes to all the staff. Overall, the stay was one to remember. This place is a must-visit!

Experience started with a glitch, but eventually it turned out to be a pleasant one. All thanks to Ms. Supari for her diligent services who immediately resolved to our concerns; especially those pertaining to F&B ones. No stone was left unturned to make us feel most comfortable and satisfied. Ayurvedic spa exerience was also very relaxing. The property is surrounded by the Bekal backwaters wherein you can spend a hour or so in solitude if you so desire.

A perfect place to enjoy a laidback vacation time, well spread out property alongside the beach. Though the time is ripe for this hotel to go in for renovation and upkeep as the rooms , the furniture therein and the amenities are quite rundown and give a feeling of needing maintenance and upkeep measures. All in all being being a Taj hotel it meets all the standards expected of them barring the maintenance of rooms.

The resort was absolutely divine, peaceful and green. Rooms done up very beautifully. The food at the backwaters Cafe was superb and freshly made. A big shout out to Mr. Amitabh and his team. They ensured that we got mouth watering dishes all the time. The property is surrounded by the Bekal backwaters wherein you can spend a hour or so in solitude if you so desire. I shall definitely be back Taj Bekal

Check in procedure & settling of the bill procedure was very efficient with minimum time. Regarding our stay and dining , no stone was left unturned to make us feel most comfortable and most satisfied . We did not hear the word " no " from any of the staff from managerial level to the housekeeping level who were ever smiling . The only shortcoming was that initially non maintained rooms were allocated to us but on bringing to the notice of management, it was immediately corrected by changing our rooms to our satisfaction. Mr. Amit Singh , GM and Mr.Prem , FNB Manager & Chef Mr.Ali made us totally relaxed and satisfied. Would love to visit again.
