It's very difficult to get a high rating from me. But Taj Kumarkom made me and my family happy in all aspects. Its located at the edge of the backwater which is an amazing view. The property itself is beautiful. The staff is very courteous and the food is not only tasty but of great quality. Things could have been better: 1. Please expand your buffet menu. 2. Please add more bicycles for kids. 3. Few complement activities will be icing on the cake.

Five of us stayed at the premium cottage lagoon view. This has a great view of the lake and the baker's bunglow. Noel helped us book in advance and at the reception Priya was very cordially assisting us understand the things to do and the local boat race which we got to see. She also helped with our smooth checkout. They had only one restaurant functional during our visit, the vembanad. Suesh's service at the restaurant was good. Chef Manoj had also stopped by to check if the guest were enjoying the sadhya. The food though in our personal opinion was average for the cost. We didn't eat from there after that. We tried a few activities managed by muddy boots at the property. Rajilesh and Jashid helped us with the ziplin and kayaks. They were very good at giving us the briefing before it started. Danu who usually also rode buggy helped us understand the property better and things we could explore. Senthil was very polite at the property. Helped us understand the baker's bunglow better. Mahesh helped us during the high tea. Pradeep Kumar helped maintain our rooms in top notch condition but the property otherwise did seems not maintained well. In comparison to what you'd expect from a brand like Taj. We spent a good amount of our time at the pool and Vishnu who has been a professional swimmer himself was kind enough to teach us and other guest at the property at the pool. He helped with the Gym and Spa related concerns as well. Helped make our stay memorable. Would recommend you walking to the jetty during sunsets, cycling through the property, ziplin is alright. You'd probably enjoy kayaking more if done early morning. As a few native kingfishers come across the bird sanctuary to Taj to catch a quick bite as there are a few fishes in the lake. Would recommend not missing on the snake boat race of you get a chance to since it is walking distance and the bird sanctuary irrespective of it is a season or not just for the walk. It is adjacent to the property. They also have a bharatnatyam dance performance in the evening for an hour which the members could enjoy right below at the baker's bunglow. Overall was a decent stay.

We a family of four were looking for a quick weekend getaway stay and Taj came to our mind. Stayed in a cottage overlooking the lotus pond. Stay was amazing, kids had super fun watching the sunset in the lake bed area in the property. Food was amazing with a vast spread of varieties. We absolutely loved the stay. Fishing, Archery, boating and other activities are available upon request. It is a huge property of 15 Acres and it is good to walk around. The vibe and the atmosphere is soothing and serene. Hospitality was top notch. I personally liked the Buggy rides to and fro the cottages. Will come back for sure. Cheers!

We two couples enjoyed the blissful environment of this amazing Taj property. One of our group wanted to keep his sugar level down. Executive Chef Manoj Pandey rose to the occasion, took personal interest, and turned out a series of sugar free, amazing desserts, which we all enjoyed. The personal attention given by Chef Manoj Pandey and thoughtfulness really touched the bottom of our hearts.

We had a very peaceful stay in Taj kumarakom. We stayed in Heritage Lagoon Facing property and this has a best view. Rooms are spacious and neat. The staff are very courteous and helpful. The property is spread across 15 acres withs lot of greenery. The resort has access to Vembanad Lake and the sunset view is quite nice. Breakfast was very tasty. Lunch and dinner spread was good but could have been a tad tastier. Overall enjoyed our peaceful stay.
