Airy, unostentatious, luxe. Despite a luxuriance of design details and elements (from the cultures and traditions of Kerala, as well as India’s colonial heritage) the hotel radiates a sense of space that is uncluttered and effortless (with service and amenities to match).

We stayed at Vivanta by Taj Bekal for my birthday for 3 nights. It was an awesome experience. Their villas are very nice. The staff is very polite, courteous and helpful. We had a wonderful experience. Will recommend if you want a relaxing holiday, as there is not much you can do outside the resort except visit an old fort!
