    The staff are friendly and are very helpful as they are always at a Taj hotel. The pool area is great & the spa facilities are good.

    My only complaint would be the noise from some of the ships going past - sounding their horns early in the morning which would wake me up.

  • Older travelers

    Excellent chain in all respects.

    Didn't realise you cannot swim in the sea. Which is just as well as the position is on a backwater and it was unbelievably filthy - you wouldn't believe what floated by the hotel on a daily basis. Also, didn't realise it is situated in a quite an industrial area with views over to cranes and docks. However, a great position if you want to visit Fort Kochi.

    superb location right on the harbor with ocean views from our room , excellent spread of complimentary evening snacks and free boat rides, courteous , helpful and knowledgeable staff , the evenings seem magical when the lights come on

    Upon arrival we were greeted by a lovely man on the reception desk. He upgraded our room and was very helpful. The suite as well as the entire hotel was just incredible. We ate in one of the restaurants which was a great experience. The restaurant was amazing there menu was very good and the staff are well trained I would like to thank the staff at the restaurant there were perfect.Tea and cookies in on the beach was just amazing too in the evenings. There is so much for everyone at this hotel and it is actually better value than you would expect for such a wonderful experience. Fantastic!!! Spend a few days and enjoy the absolute luxury. I will absolutely stay again at this hotel.

    It was the best hotel/ressort experience I ever had. The staff was incredible helpful and friendly, it was like being part of a family. The rooms were very clean, the house and the surroundings are in colonial style and very comfortable. The restaurants were excellent.

    I loved this hotel. The staff were so friendly and were very very helpful, especially when I felt a bit poorly and they brought me breakfast to the room and pain killers. Really nice location and facilities felt like we were royalty cannot fault anything about it. The hotel has extra special little touches like the tea time and the boat ride. Would definitely go back and also use their other hotels.

    Excellent service, lively pool, good food and fabulous spa.

    Location

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    The hotel itself and offered services are great, but location and terrible seaview on idustrial part of the city spoils all the atmosphere. That will be fair to say that no information is mentioned on your website about cargo boats that are floating back and forth all day lond making terrible noises.

    Friendly atmosphere and great cuisine, especially Thai restaurant.

    Every single thing, but especially the food. This group need to publish a cookbook. It is worth staying here for the food alone

    a another really great TAJ experience. staff totally committed to service, wonderful pool and spa area.theres a person at pool teaching kids to swim who is amazing. lots of chillou spaces for reading, both indoor and outdoor. and the free boatride, just wonderful experience. i planed 2 nights, stayed 4.

    hotel is slightly oldish and could use some renovations, bathtub too small, lots of noise polution since the hotel is in the harbour and location is very far from everything, so you need taxis.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    Possibly the best service I have ever experienced, efficient, sophisticated and extremely warm.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    Everything about the hotel was great. Never had so much attention given by the staff of any other hotel. This place and the staff were so accomodating that i recommend this place to any intended traveller.

    Was thinking very hard to find a fault but couldn't.
