This is an amazing property with 26 acres of landscaped goodness. Everything from checkin to checkout is handled smoothly. The rooms are large and spacious with good view of the backwaters and the gardens. The buffet breakfast is enough to fuel you for the day full of activities like Kayaking, Archery, Paintball etc.

First of all, I was hesitant about going to Kerala. We wanted to take our dog to the beach. Kerala is known for slaughtering their dogs.

Though the city don't have much to offer for traveler but if one want to have core relaxation without any annoyance or disturbance, Taj Bekal provide soothing effect. Would suggest to go with Villa with plunge pool. I must say, i enjoyed it like never had such experience in small city resorts.
