Taj hospitality was as expected excellent. Staff was out to make you happy . Each and every one of them. Team spirit within them was also excellent. Why would I stay anywhere else in Kumarkom in my next visit

It's been a pleasure to be back at this breathtaking property. Hospitality by Jayantha & his team make me come back again to this place. It's like a home away from my home. I surely would recommend this place to my friends in future.
