For the villa itself, it was a very well designed villa, with heated pool, a gazebo next to the pool, open...

The place has not changed a bit and neither has the Taj hospitality. This time we chose to stay in a plunge pool villa room which was simply superb. The villa...

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....
