You stroll from spot to spot on connecting paths past Jacuzzis, cascading water ponds, and vine-covered walls. It’s provides many opportunities for romance whether watching the waves crash into the rocky shoreline while having afternoon tea at their private beach or watching cormorants... More

We stayed at the Taj on Kovalam beach on Nov 29th 2016. The hotel is a beautiful property located in the Kovalam backwater area, next to the sea. We were greeted on arrival by the hotel staff and were given beautiful sea shell garlands and a sindoor tika on our foreheads. The check-in process was flawless while we waited in... More

The property is amazing in all ways. Right from the warm welcome I can say that everything was perfect. Indian personalised hospitality and global cuisine is the best combination anyone can get. The beachside Bait restaurant specialises in sea food and the Kerala style fish curry was to die for. I was there with my wife and daughter and they... More

This hotel was a superb place to stay. All staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The waiter Upendra was especially helpful and gave us a special last evening.

Had a lovely week at the Taj, in Kovolam. Beautiful resort, and enjoyed walking along the beach seeing the local fishermen. Particular mention for Upendra and Chinky, who work in the Jasmine Bay restaurant who were diligent and welcoming all week. Thank you. Gardens and grounds are well maintained. Great swimming pool too.
