We recently stayed at this hotel for 12 nights. During our stay, we found the staff to be fantastic. The grounds of the Taj are exceptional. The only area which could be improved is the upgrade of room accommodation.

We had a week here in November 15. Not sure if it was because it was early in the season, or because it coincided with Diwali, but the place seemed to be only 1/3 full. We had our choice of table at breakfast, and at times, were the only people on the sun-beds or in the swimming pool. Suited us...

Sea facing rooms are excellent. You can actually get up everyday with the sound of waves lashing the shore. Great Hospitality!!! They have many entertainment programs which are really lively.

Good food. It can be the case you can get sick of curries in India very quickly. Therefore it's important to deliver a good variety which we felt they did. The old world charm which has been mentioned I notice in a few positive comments is certainly one of my highlights. Colonial Britishness at its best!!!
