Truly an awesome resort. Very well planned and very well maintained. The Bekal Beach is just a walk away (almost private beach and hence safe). Serene swimming pool. River rafting, kayaking etc available. Food is excellent and authentic North Malabar dishes too. Kid-safe and physically challenged friendly too. Lots of indoor and outdoor games' options available. Truly a weekend getaway....

We had a simply superb vacation at the Taj, Bekal! Not only was the property amazing, but we also got a free upgrade on our accommodation. The staff were extremely courteous and helpful and the food was awesome. Our five year old had a blast exploring the property! The visit to the Bekal fort and watching the sunset there was...

This was my second visit to Taj Bekal but the first time to stay here. A medium sized property with direct access to the creek and the beach. As this property lies on the borders of Kerala and Karnataka if you are looking for a typical Kerala styled resort and backwaters, I would suggest you travel further down to central...

We stayed here 3 nights. So impressed with how genuine and amicable the staff were - they seemed so happy to show us around and cater to every request. Food is excellent - at the coffee shop (Latitudes) as well as the restaurant at the beach. Rooms are the nicest we have been to - of course because of the...

I traveled to this property for office off-site meeting. A 40 minute flight from Bangalore got me to Mangalore. Paid Rs.2100 and took (there is a counter within the airport) a prepaid sedan car to Taj Vivanta Bekal. The cab ride took 2 hrs in regular traffic. The property is impressive, well maintained and the staff provide good hospitality. There...

The hotel also maintains a very nice activity room. The entire staff is very customer friendly. They main a sea-view eating area called "By the Bay". However, due...
