We visited Taj Bekal last week with our family of 7. Pickup and drop to and from airport, check in and check out was smooth. Amazing location with nature's glory in abundance. We enjoyed random bird sightings in backwater, relaxing in swing bed and beach strolls. We looked forward to evening tea at backwaters served with hot snacks. Breakfast spread was good as well. Spa setting is grand. However, the services we availed could have been better for the money we spent. I would like to make a special mention of the staff who were caring and ensured we had a comfortable stay (I don't recollect couple of names though .. that of the chef and at the concierge). Sharath,Amrutha, Anjeesha, sujeeth, from front desk, Amal, Amitabh, Abhishek,Kaushal, Joel(who smilingly and cheerfully served us water), Nobert from house keeping and the entire team serving evening snacks. These all were on their toes to ensure that we all are at comfort. They even came forward to help us out with our toddler so that we could complete with our hotel formalities et al. Service is good. They provided us whatever was required ... Be it for our toddler or for the elderlies in our family. However, I felt that, there is certainly a room for improvement on hospitality part. Overall, I felt a lull. Some smiling, proactiveness and cheerful face could really lift up the mood of the property. Although there were exceptions (mentioned above). I even felt that special attention and interaction by the staff should not be only focussed to fussy guests but to each and everyone present in the property. Children play area, activity area good for spending time indoors. Beach is clean and calm, property is well maintained too. The location of the property is really unique. Overall a good and refreshing stay amidst nature's lap, delicious food and plenty of memories to take back home. Highly recommended if you are looking forward to relaxing and rejuvenating amongst beach and nature especially with kiddos and/or elderlies 😄😄 We would certainly like to visit in future.
The hotel is very well located .. both backwater and the beach at one place .. outdoor beach side restaurant .. private beach with comforts and sunset view .. villas are comfortable and spacious with personal pool and sit out .. outdoor bathtub and shower.All restaurants offer very good food .. breakfast spread is awesome .. especially Ramaserry idlis, sambar (kerala-style), amazing Mysore masala dosas .. grills and more is excellent and delicate..

Visites Taj Bekal this weekend to celebrate my daughter's first birthday and had a memorable stay .... There were initial hiccups as our room and service was not good in beginning but once we changed the room from there everything was wonderful.... Special thanks to operation manager sandeep charles for arranging our princess's bday celebrations ... Entire staff was very courteous ..i m bad in remembring names but few like Amal and Deepa were very sweet with the kids ....property has backwaters nd a bful beach ...lush green walk ways and everything wonderful but as usual my desi taste buds didnt like five star's blend food that much ...but overall a very relaxing and picturesque property !!!
Spent 4 nights at the hotel and loved every minute. Mr Nambiar , Mr Sharath , Mr Sudheesh , Mr Sujith , Miss Amruta and Miss Varsha have been very helpful and made sure we were taken care like a family .This property has a great view of the backwaters. An excellent resort where one can spend the entire day in the resort enjoying their activities, cycling around or just relaxing. There's beauty tucked in every corner. Great hospitality from all the crew and it is their kindness and warmth that makes the stay better. The staff goes out of their way to make sure your stay is comfortable. Buffet spread was sumptuous and delicious with a great variety of cuisines. Housekeeping is specially efficient. All in all everything was perfect and we enjoyed a lot. Thank you for the great experience. Madhuri.
An Experience Beyond Words . I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to Mr Nambiar Mr Sharath and Mr Sudheesh and the entier Taj Bekal team who helped me make my stay with my family a memorable experience. It has brrn a fantastic stay with a professional and kind staff who have been attentive to all aspects of our needs and wonderful delicious food. The large property is full of greenery with the backwater around it and stands on the beach. The villas are amazing and to a high standard. The whole ambience of the place was amazing. Undoubtedly i will not only recommend this place to all but will be back soon again .
We come to taj with great expectations but Its a big disappointment again, shame on taj for appointing such 3rd class staffs who don’t even have a smile on their face, Being a taj member I was there at Taj Bekal on 25/11/2018 with my parents and family for dinner and we had a worst experience this time, we entered the property with a big smile and everyone left with a sad face, a restaurant staff whose name is AMAL spoiled our family’s day we will never come back neither suggest anyone this property, what do everyone expect when visiting such a big reputed hotels and resorts we expect only a smile and if taj can’t give us this then you need to shut down immediately, I wrote a letter to the restaurant manager immediately after we came out of the restaurant regarding this, we could see him smiling and chatting with foreigners there but had a arrogant 3rd class behavior with us he should be kicked out of service immediately otherwise we as a guest will have to do that. For reference my restaurant bill no is 53124 and 53125. Also the food was not hot, taste was not up to the mark and you know what was ever worst soup salad starters all came together we had to hurry to finish otherwise the food would become cold, plz check your cctv footage for reference. ONCE AGAIN AMAL SPOILED OUR DAY.
Awesome place. Nice luxurious resort! The rooms are very well appointed. Bathrooms have a nice large bath tub. The rooms also have a nice balcony and a swing. The buffet spreads are good and the north indian restaurant serves very good food. Another restaurant serves local cuisine. that too was a good experience especially since it is on the beach. The resort is on a beach. The beach is nice and clean. It was also empty when we visited.
Amazing secluded location and family friendly. Lots of activities for children and a play/ activity area. We were upgraded to a villa with private pool which made our experience even better. Food is excellent and I recommend trying their Kerala dishes. Breakfast spread is good. As with all Taj properties, they will go out of the way to cater to any dietary requirements or any special requests for children. Bar menu has some interesting cocktails which we tried though I felt was expensive. Any positive feedback about their staff would be an understatement and should be personally experienced. Anjesha from guest services made our stay absolutely worth it. Will definitely visit again.
From our arrival to departure our experience was amazing. Tranquil and truly beautiful surroundings with the hotel staff always attentive. We had a courtyard room which was huge and pure luxury. It is also great for kids, they have activities all day and have a kids club/crèche, lots of choice on food and the swimming pool was perfect for my 4 year old granddaughter. Jiva spa was wonderful and yoga teacher sudeep was fantastic, very experienced and a fountain of knowledge and great teaching. My daughter learnt a lot and developed more flexibility and her technique improved immensely. The food was exceptional and the beach restaurant is a must! We really look forward to coming back again and a huge thank you to all the staff at Taj Bekal.
