We chances upon this property while surfing through the Taj website. We were looking for a place away from the city madness and easily reachable from Mumbai. And Taj Bekal is totally it. It's tucked away in a beautiful part of Kerala with a river on side and the Arabian Sea on the other. We stayed in a beautiful villa...

Taj owned properties don't really need a review. Everything from the food, staff, rooms, transfers, service, hygiene, location and maintenance were simply excellent. A beach, river and good resteraunts all inside the property. Definitely going back soon.
