One of the nights there was a gecko in our room which grossed us out, but the staff promptly sent the service team to address the situation....

We spent the long Good Friday weekend at this property. We had arranged for a pick up and drop from the hotel to the Kottayam railway station (approx Rs 1000 one way for a small car). Though the weather was very humid, it was more than made up by the ever smiling staff who were always willing to help and...

Fantastic place to take a break with family. In the midst of the beautiful mangroves and lagoon of kumarakom with its breath taking ecology, this is the place to be for a lovely peaceful break. And the icing on the cake is the unmatched hospitality of Taj. They truly are the best at it. Five Stars all the way.
