Travellers' Choice
Taj - Green Cove Resort & Spa, Kovalam, is delightful in many ways. While to some it is one of the finest seaside resorts in Kerala, to others it is an amazing backwater retreat. And there are those that love it for its hill resort layout. Now it's all that and more. There's a nice new buzz all over. In the renewed cottages and villas, the nouvelle restaurants, the high energy bar, and the spa where you'll go Ah!

Hotel's Favourite
It was our first time in Kovalam and Taj Green Cove made it a memorable one with their warm hospitality. We arrived at the resort by 3 pm and the staff welcomed us with tender coconut water and sea shell garlands. We stayed for three nights in a garden facing cottage which is quite big with an outdoor sitting area offering views of the lawns. The entire resort area is surrounded by greenery and there is a lagoon within the property where we had the complimentary boat ride in the evening. A part of the resort is along the coastline and one can view the amazing beauty of the sunset and the Arabian Sea. Breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet is served in the Jasmine bay restaurant with a wide variety of delicious vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. The restaurant BAIT specialise in seafood and offers breathtaking views of both the lagoon and the sea simultaneously. We tried Kingfish in Bait and it was one of my favourite sea food dish till date. Complimentary tea/coffee with delectable cookies, cakes, fritters, puffed rice etc is served to all guests in the evening by the seaside accompanied with live music. The resort also arranges various activities for the children, viz, Archery, kite flying etc in the evening which our kid enjoyed thoroughly. The entire team of Taj Green Cove is very professional and looked after us very well during our stay. The hotel is child friendly and our kid enjoyed a lot during the stay. Special thanks to Jasmine, Mugal Kalita, Pradeep, Venigopal, Md Tausif, Nikki, Shivaramakrishnan, Krishna, Prakash Mahato, Anuraj, Sanjeev and the entire team of Taj for making our stay a memorable one. We'll definitely be staying in Taj Green Cove to experience such a warm hospitality once again in our next visit to Kovalam.

It’s a lovely hotel in quite extensive grounds, and the service and people are excellent, the food was spot on, whatever we eat was freshly made or from the buffet, or served to our room. Breakfast was local food (think mainly curries) but also western food, so plenty of choice. I marked the review down a star because I felt the accommodation we had was a bit tired and could be updated. We had a cottage room with terrace and the bed had no mattress protector on, the general decor was old and felt it was overdue a refurbishment. There certainly may be better rooms but this was the one allocated to us so I based my review on it. Also lots of steps up and down to the lower cottage rooms, bear that in mind when you book We also explored the hotel grounds and they have a restaurant by the sea, which is a nice walk, with complimentary afternoon tea and music, great place for a sundowner. The massage treatment was excellent, very relaxing, and staff were always very polite and helpful. I would definitely visit again but I wouldn’t stay in the cottage rooms, unless there had been a refurb.

As soon as we got to the The Green Cove by Taj, January 23rd 2024, a warm welcoming from everyone outstanding hospitality from the GM Suku, he personally invited us to meet him. It was pleasure to get know him, a gentleman. The reception staff Jasmine and all her colleagues so welcoming which makes a difference to us after a long journey from the U.K. The jewellery business proprietor Adil is his name a delightful person to do business with. He was so helpful to us he is more like a friend. The hospitality staff Pragati, Naresh, Venitkush, Tanisha, Anit, Cliffton. The head chef Munish Rajput and the entire hospitality staff as well as Anit, the housekeeping manager and his team excellent service in cleaning. The Spa team Dr Raj amazing experience of relaxations massages we both enjoyed myself and my husband. The head Reservations Kumar Amendra is alway good to book with directly, in which we have for many years, and we already booked for January 2025. We enjoy booking the same suite since 2016 and we normally get the same suite because of Kumar good guest relationships from The Cove by Taj Koverlom Kerala india.

I have travelled the world and stayed at the best hotels. But Taj Kovalam staff, management and service are absolutely unique. All staff members work with their heart. The extra plus is the smiles, the warmth and the care. For 12 days, we were pampered and taken care of with kindness and warmth which made us feel at home. We left feeling like leaving a family behind. I thank every single member of Taj Kovalam for making our stay in India memorable💛

Overall it was a great stay at Taj Kovalam. I would like to extend my gratitude towards each and every one in the staff for a great hospitality at your hotel. Special mention to Raj for the great hospitality. Also please extend my regards to day and night Chefs for the in room dining. I was travelling with my 1 yr old kid and the chefs made great efforts for serving the kid with great meals throughout the day. The cleaning staff also helped us with baby bottle sterilization and would like to mention the cleanliness was top notch. I would also like to mention that the staff was very polite, courteous and really helpful. The best thing I have seen after a long time in hotel is that support staff made all efforts to serve us in the best possible way. Thank you again for having us stay at Taj Kovalam and making the stay so memorable and pleasing.

This resort is a truly beautiful oasis in Kovalam. There is almost a jungle feel to this property and the greenery and coconut trees everywhere were amazing. This did mean a few unwanted visitors in the form of flies and one fairly hefty spider but nothing too crazy. As with all Taj properties, the rooms, bathrooms and amenities are all top notch. The property is massive with a lake which offers free boat rides and wonderful sunset views of the sea with a complimentary high tea. We were too busy at the beach most days to spend much time at the pool or the spa but both looked brilliant. One thing to note is that this property does not have direct beach access, however, the nearest beach is only 10 mins away and there are cars and autos readily available. The buffet breakfast and dinner are both of the highest quality and we truly enjoyed every meal we had here. Chef Munish Kumar has done a spectacular job with the quality of the Indian food and we ate some of the best meals of our trip at Taj. We also enjoyed the live music at dinner time. The highlight of our time at Taj has to be the hospitality of their staff who made us feel so welcomed. There is a real family feel to their staff who go out of their way to help you. In particular, our family truly appreciated Raghav and Vinod who made this trip such a memorable one for us. Ima muffin and Brishti were also most attentive and friendly. We will definitely be back!

It was a wonderful experience for us at Taj Kovalam. We had a really great time there and considering it being the first trip with our infant who is 5 months old it was really comfortable. Big thank you to Jasmine who was really helpful from the beginning to the end.

I have just returned home from 10 days at this Beautiful hotel and I cannot recommend it enough. From the second we arrived the staff could not do enough for us, they waited on us hand and foot from start to finish, nothing was ever too much trouble. A special mention for Jasmine, Joel, the restaurant staff, spa therapists, pool boy, buggy drivers and house keepers. The room was spotlessly clean and on my birthday they made it extra special by decorating room/bed. I had four wonderful relaxing treatments in the spa that was enjoyable and had my hair done too. Would definitely return as I couldn’t fault the place and people. Thank you for making our stay special. Barbara & John x
