Hospitality was as expected. EXCELLENT!!!!! Turndown services @ taj is the best. The staff never say no for any requests. The food spread was disappointing but the chef made up for the same by cooking any food we requested for. The resort is kind of old but it is a heritage property so can’t expect more.

Went with very high expectations from my previous experience with Taj resorts, but little disappointed. Never felt like a 5 star property. Issues with bathroom and toilet which took time to resolve. Was expecting more veriety on breakfast table.

It was pure serendipity that Executive Chef Manoj Pandey ended up answering my call to make a reservation at Vembanad Bistro. His warmth came across very prominently even on the telephonic call. When we arrived at the property,we were treated just like family. Thank You Manoj. Sambandam took good care of us (I hope I got the name right). We are taking back excellent memories with us.

This is the third visit to this visit which happens to be "Rising Memorable Stay" on every visit. Most important about this property is that it is very relaxing. Would like to mention the dance performance while having dinner, was really a pleasant surprise for us this time. Priya Maam was courteous to upgrade our room, making us feel more attached to the place. On our first visit, we did the house boat overnight stay which was just beyond our expectations. Second visit we will cherish for ever and also did the house boat with my mother in law ( read - mother). As now she is no more we always recall her by seeing her in photos and videos. Because of the staff and dining, our trip was a pleasurable memory and we would to visit here, every year, now. Thanks Priya Ma'am. As always you are a great host from Taj.

This was our 3rd trip to Taj Kumarakom and it was as brilliant as the first time. Ms. Priya assisted us from setting the itinerary , during our stay till the checkout. All the hotel staff is extremely polite and always ready to help. Taj maintained its standard maintaining highest level of panache and cleanliness. Have no doubt when booking for this piece of paradise in God's own Country.

Vishnu, the life guard at the pool is an amazing person. He is not only a very pleasant personality but also a very responsible one. He is also a very good coach. He taught my daughter to swim within three days of coaching. He is extremely methodical, technical and has loads of patience with children. AND NO ADDITIONAL COST ASKED FOR. The pool experience in Taj Kumarakom made the trip really very special to us. Thankyou VISHNU Thankyou TAJ KUMARAKOM

We had a very good stay at Taj Kumarakom, primarily due to the excellent staff at the property. Ms. Priya at the front office and Mr. Manoj the Executive Chef went above and beyond to make sure our stay was exemplary. Each and every other member of the Taj Kumarakom team we met left us with a great personalized experience. If there was one drawback, it was the limited dining options - the single restaurant had no air conditioning and it was very hot at breakfast and lunch. Also, there was a limited menu and the Chef and his team were kind enough to accommodate some meal requests that were not part of the regular menu.
