I cannot recollect any other hotel (including several Taj group properties & other reputed hotels) where I have experienced such warm & exemplary service - truly in line with traditional Indian philosophy of 'Atithi Devo Bhava'. Such excellent service, together with the sprawling property and its plethora of engaging activities (fishing, boating - both on Vembanad lake & the internal lake, goose feeding, pottery, cycling, swimming, games during evening tea on the lawn facing Vembanad Lake, musical / dance program during dinner) - this property & its offering kept us and all other guests deeply engaged and spellbound.
The cottages all around the property are very well laid out, interiors at par with Taj standards and room services decently prompt.
Our 2 Nt / 3 day package included all food at the main restaurant - I must say we ate to our heart's content! The F&B Manager (Mr Prince) took special care to custom-make non spicy dishes for our little one. Every staff member of the hotel knew each guest/family by their names and at all available opportunities offered to help as much on anything one needs. Overall - a truly refreshing holiday experience we had at Taj Kumarakom.
