This is a heritage property with very friendly and amenable staff - willing to do all to make our stay relaxing and comfortable. The Activity area was a boon - to keep children busy without screen time. Bicycles are a great idea. The buffet service and range was very good - and the live station well stocked. The dining room...

We came back from our 2 nights stay at Taj Kumarkom, and we were enthralled with our experience. The staff right from the General Manager - Jayant Das, the activity manager - Ravindran, Hotel Staff - Ranjit, Biju , Pankaj, all were extremely helpful, and genuinely trying to make your experience the best. Here is what we liked the most...

Imagine being cut-out from the real-world in a blissful, cocooned getaway. A place where you slowly watch time run by. Where you can take fishing & boating trips within the resort lakes, cycle up and down the property, or just relax in a hammock. Where you meet fellow guests over evening 'chai' at a tea-shop overlooking the lake (while listening...

Lovely property with a large lagoon in the centre of the property with some rooms scattered around the lagoon. The property has old fashioned charm with a lot of privacy. We stayed for 3 nights in the deluxe allure villas, which are next to one of the smaller lakes behind the large lagoon. It was like staying in your own...

We stayed at Taj vivanta Kumarakom for 5days recently...Perhaps this is the worst Taj hotels property we have ever stayed at... Somehow the feel of a Taj hotel was missing although the service rendered was worth appreciating. The property is not well maintained at all and is located right next to a cowshed. To make matters worse..the property also has...

A perfect getaway from the city life - Taj at Kumarakom, was a soothing experience for us even in a relatively hot month of May.

This hotel has only 32 rooms or cottages and is spread over15 acres of land. It was a house of a Baker and purchased by the Taj later. Since limited rooms are available you will get more privacy.
