It's tucked away in a beautiful part of Kerala with a river on side and the Arabian Sea on the other. We stayed in a beautiful villa...

Taj owned properties don't really need a review. Everything from the food, staff, rooms, transfers, service, hygiene, location and maintenance were simply excellent. A beach, river and good resteraunts all inside the property. Definitely going back soon.

Was here on a short holiday of 2 nights. We loved this hotel, just beautiful. Excellent location, between the sea and backwaters. Loved the service, excellent staff, who were very cooperative and willing to serve. The food was really good, our 6 year old loved it We are sure to be back for a longer vacation
