Been there for a casual couple trip. This resort has an awesome campus with individual row house kind of rooms, which are constructed in typical kerelian architecture. Unique features like open air shower, backyard lake, etc. gives an extra edge for the resort. Highly recommended.

Kind of disappointed with administrative staff. Service staff was excellent. Money charged was not commiserate with the services rendered. There is nothing to do around the hotel and the hotel offered NOTHING. You had to fend for yourself. Concierge was pathetic.

We stayed at the Premium Temptation Villa with Private Pool at Taj Kumarakom for 3 nights. The customer service was exceptional as we had our 6 month old baby with us, and the front office manager, Noel, offered to serve all meals in-room including the breakfast. He was also very quick in getting us a medicine from a medicine shop...

This is a heritage property with very friendly and amenable staff - willing to do all to make our stay relaxing and comfortable. The Activity area was a boon - to keep children busy without screen time. Bicycles are a great idea. The buffet service and range was very good - and the live station well stocked. The dining room...

Imagine being cut-out from the real-world in a blissful, cocooned getaway. A place where you slowly watch time run by. Where you can take fishing & boating trips within the resort lakes, cycle up and down the property, or just relax in a hammock. Where you meet fellow guests over evening 'chai' at a tea-shop overlooking the lake (while listening...

Lovely property with a large lagoon in the centre of the property with some rooms scattered around the lagoon. The property has old fashioned charm with a lot of privacy. We stayed for 3 nights in the deluxe allure villas, which are next to one of the smaller lakes behind the large lagoon. It was like staying in your own...
