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...

Truly a "Wah Taj" experience in all aspects, be it hospitality, amenities, room service, quality of stay, room decor, passenger comfort.......etc etc. The overall experience was amazing and blissful entirely due to the efforts of the very sincere and enthusiastic team , ably led by Gaurav. One very important thing to mention was the very prompt in-room dining service, which...

Staying at the property for the last three nights with two young kids. On our final dinner we decided to eat an early dinner at Latitude their 24 hour coffee shop.

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....

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.
