All staff is very nice and friendly but with little training. They say yes to every request, but you'd better check 3 times or do it yourself before it gets done... Would it be...

I recommend staying in the plunge pool villa. The rooms are excellent and the service is extraordinary. There are some great activities that you should try. Go for the kayaking in the back waters. We tried the personal barbecue by the pool. Was fantastic. The food is great at by the bay - their beach side restaurant.

It was one of our best resort experiences globally. As a family, we would have stayed in atleast 9-10 of some of the finest resorts across India and South East Asia, but Taj Bekal is surely the best ever we have seen. A huge thumbs up to the staff, which is so very well trained and courteous. The service in...

We went for a short family break and enjoyed our stay at Bekal thoroughly. The backwaters, the silence, the privacy, the ever helpful staff - all just put us in the mood we wanted to be in!
