    Fantastic property. The staff is really amazing and very personal. You’re in an oasis at the Taj and forget about everything outside of the property. Highly recommended!

  • 8.0.Very good

    Property overall good, the cottage we stayed in was good but the bathroom was bit aged. For the price I paid, I do appreciate it was their high season but I expect very high standard of the cottage. Staff were excellent and the rest of the facilities and the restaurants were very very good.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Poor quality, overpriced food, beautiful lagoon

    This is a tired hotel. Rooms have dust and the quality of fixtures, fittings and furniture (apart from the bed which is outstanding) is of poor quality. The breakfast is of limited choice, the same every day and of very poor quality ingredients. Food overall apart from the Bait restaurant is poor quality and extremely overpriced. Unfortunately the so-called ‘high tea’ is again of very poor quality - plastic jars of Bournvita and Horlicks are not 5*. The swimming pool is very small and quite shallow. Quickly becomes crowded and not much fun. The whole place has European 5* hotel prices without anywhere near the quality. The only redeeming feature is the lagoon and nearby sea area which are beautiful, especially at sunset.

    One of the most amazing hotels and staff

    Words will not explain the level of content and happiness I felt when spending my vacation in the Taj kovalam. This place and it's extremely amazing staff was the pinnacle of my India trip.

    Perfect

    The most beautiful place and people ever. Nothing is too much trouble. You are looked after so well by everyone. The food is delicious and very well presented. The room was spotless and very comfortable. We had a small plunge pool which made our stay complete. I am going back next year and will stay at the Taj again. Can’t wait.
