Very impressed as is the norm I expect from Vivanta. Right from arrival to departure, they took care of every detail. Best part I liked were (a) the Bird Watch in the early morning in their sprawling and amazingly well maintained property. (b) Kayaking in the backwaters which is part of their property itself. Dont forget to take an early...

Visited Taj Vivanta Bekal with friends for a college reunion. The property is in an outstanding location overlooking the backwaters and the beach. The beach is clean and quite private. The service, food, staff and facilities are outstanding. The pool villas are classy and private with plunge pool. Highly recommended property.
