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....

It is a beautiful property offering excellent view of backwaters and easy access to beach. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. However food has a scope of improvement. I had some problems with leakage in bathroom but it was rectified after reporting it to house keeping.

The hotel is beautiful, at a great location, and what made our stay special was the excellent service, smiling hospitality and warmth shown by the team. December is the best time to come to Bekal as it is not too warm to go for nature walks around the property, but yet warm enough to enjoy the pool villas. One suggestion...

We stayed here for 3 nights and anticipated an awesome holiday, but it turned out to be a bit of let down. The room was nicely appointed, and really liked the swing provided in the balcony and the art on the wall. The views from the room weren't that great but it was quiet and peaceful. The food at latitude...

Perfect location for a getaway from all the hustle and bustle of city life. The spa facility is excellent and the therapists are well trained. Kayaking on the back waters was extremely peaceful and relaxing. Staff is extremely helpful and courteous.
