This is a truly amazing property spread over 16 acres. From the moment you check in you are treated like royalty. We booked the Superior Charm rooms with access to the gardens. The rooms are spacious and inviting. Lots of activities within the property to keep you occupied.

Stay was excellent. Service was absolutely impeccable. Staff was always on their feet and we got more than we wanted. We were pampered in all aspects. Food, stay amidst the beautiful natural surroundings. Beach on one side and backwaters on the other. Food spread was good. One suggestion would be to include more of kerala cuisine which we would have...

We stayed here for 3 nights. We were escorted into room 816 and immediately commented on the foul smell emanating from the AC unit. Housekeeping appeared quickly and lit a candle with a very strong essence. Unfortunately the essence only partially masked the smell. Four staff members agreed that there was a definite unpleasant odor and yet we were not...

This is a lovely property located about 90 min from Mangalore airport just across the Karnataka Kerala border. The property itself is not too large but offers stunning views of the backwaters. The beach is just a short walk away. The folks at Taj sure know how to pamper their guests. The service levels were spectacular to say the least....
