We stayed at the Taj Green Cover property for two nights in mid-April, 2017. We have never experienced such an exceptional location and experience as we did here. The location, lodging, staff, food, cleanliness, conveniences, and amenities are all exceptional. Would highly recommend this property to anyone.

I had a great stay at Taj kovalam and staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Its a fantastic hotel for short or long break and centrally located near to airport or Trivandrum city. It has some of the stunning sea views and rooms feels like located within a botanical garden.

The poor front desk tried his hardest to check us...

We chose to stay 4 nights at the Taj on the last leg of our trip to Kerala as it looked more authentic than the Leela and we were not disappointed.
