Overrated hotel”
New Years eve event was great, Kappil beach is perfect for long walks, the buildings have great style
The hotel is by European standards 3 star hotel and a such is way overrated. Beach facilities are poor. Poolside is missmanaged. Both poolside and beach area lack sun beads and sun shades. If you demand you can get ok service. But the star is reactive, not proactive. For tea you need to ask 5 times. For other things less. Many things fail both service and maintenance side. For example it has good bathrooms, but if you use water in bath tube it stays there. They also freeze you off - when you arrive room is around 21 degrees and you can only heat it with hair dryer. If you but air conditioner off, staff turns it on again and again. Also poolside toilets are often extremely cold. And also sometimes wet and out of paper. It's way overpriced. You get same kind of service in Europe with 2 times cheaper price. The long trip there is only worth if you have no access to beaches outside of India. But within India the Kappil beach is the best. Bad thing is that they do not allow swimming. In general Hindus are bad swimmers. In reality you have to ignore the guard if you know how to swim with tides. Under current is not bad, but is strong. Go in if you are able to swim. If not, stay out and use the beach fro long morning or evening walks. For that the Kappil Beach is stunning! ... and there is no shit in the sand as typical for India beaches! But if you are from US or Europe you are better off by going Thailand, Bali or other areas. You get much more for same price and will have stunning service and much cheaper food!

short break”
beautiful setting and rooms,
would consider going back and would definitely recommend this place. Three nights was probably a little two short given it is a long 2 hour drive to the hotel from the airport. there are small excursions you can do from the hotel but we didn't manage them. My cousin said the plantation was well worth the visit. Two minor quibbles 1) the 'Yes, sir' attitude that all the staff employed wasn't always matched by their delivery. this was probably most apparent in the restaurant. The senior staff were very helpful. 2) we would have liked more information 'pushed' to us on arrival, such as the fact that there was a kids play room and playground open all day long, sauna and steam rooms were available and we should book early for treatments as they get busy. Maybe this is all obvious but then again, maybe its not

Beautiful setting, nice room but food disappoints”
Quiet gardens, spacious rooms and design, good spa.
We stayed during New Year and the hotel provided a nice party. Food and restaurant very disappointing for the price. Noisy restaurants, food not replenished often enough but also not up to the quality one would expect of a five star. Fot that reason alone, I woul be reluctant to recommend this hotel.

Neat and clean rooms, we'll maintained, good care by staff
Stay was very comfortable with excellent environment. Overall food quality was good, but Breakfast was with limited choice and not a 5 star standard. Online reservation information is misguiding with hidden traps. Three rooms were reserved a month before as last available and shows hotel is full. I had to cancel one room out of three as my son could not get his passport from UK. Hotel refused to refund £300 as hotel policy do not allow and the hotel is full. At the same time we found hotel occupancy is only 45% and requested Duty Manager several times regarding refund. It was very disappointing to note the well known Taj group's attitude to the guests. Finally we were upgraded on the third day as an alternative to refund!!! We got immediate refund for 3 days from Holiday Inn hotel,Cochin for the cancellation of one room.

Beautifully put together resort”
Plunge pool villas, spa, service
We stayed at this resort for 7 nights at the end of the monsoon season in a couple of different room grades. Whilst the standard rooms were very nice (with outdoor swinging day beds and freestanding baths that you can open up into the rest of the room), it was the plunge pool villa that blew us away. For what (in comparison with other deluxe hotels we've stayed in) seemed a very reasonable rate, particularly pre-high season, it was an absolute beauty of a villa: private plunge pool with relaxing sound of a fountain, shaded day bed outside, romantic outdoor freestanding bath and beautiful spacious high vaulted room and bathroom, this ranks as one of the best 2 rooms I've ever been in. Other great features of the hotel include the enormous spa - we were there when the majority of the guests were Indian families, so the spa was mostly empty, and we had effectively private use of the communal areas (steam room/sauna/jacuzzi/chill-out areas) and the treatment suites were fantastic. The pool, bar and other public areas of the hotel, including the gardens overlooking the back waters were stunning and well put together. The staff were, as is expected with a Taj hotel, continuously helpful, friendly and on hand. The only slight downer while we were there was that there was only really one food option available at that time as the resort was only 90% open - the second restaurant towards the beach and pool side BBQ shack were due to open a couple of months later. Also, just be aware that the first of the month and public holidays are 'Dry' days, where you won't be able to get alcohol anywhere in Kerala! But overall - a simply spectacular resort that we would not hesitate to re-visit or recommend to anyone!
