We recently stayed at Vivanta by Taj, Kumarakom for 2 days . It is a perfect getaway from city life. A beautiful property indeed .We stayed in superior charm heritage rooms on first floor. The rooms are decent . The height of a ceiling is double the height of normal ceiling which gives the impression of a room within a...

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. While getting to the place is not the most convenient, once you reach the gates - a different world amidst nature welcomes you. We stayed at the property of 3 days - and were absolutely...

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. We stayed in superior charm rooms on first floor which looked like rooms of a palace. The height of a ceiling is...

This is probably one of the best properties in Kumarakom. It has a huge private lake with historical Baker's house within the property. We stayed in a cottage and the rooms were excellent except for the AC. For some reason the AC wasn't very effective. Food is excellent. The property is right on the banks of Vembanad lake which is...

Taj Vivanta at Kumarakoam is a great place to relax and spend quality time with family. It gives you a lot of options especially for the kids. The staff are also very courteous and take care of you well. The facilities are good and overall a good resort to spend about 3 days
