눉The pool is only 4 feet deep. Cab airport transfer charges are exorbitant. (Their touring packages are reasonable.) Call 6000 6000 for a local taxi service. The spa was good, but the Jiva experience at Kovalam was far superior to this one.
눇The beach is clean, private and secluded. Perfect location. Just for that alone, worth a revisit. Bay View chef, food and ambience were exceptional. Well equipped gym. Open to sky shower. Near an airport and yet secluded. The accommodation options range from basic, but sea facing rooms in the old building, stylish rooms in the new building, partial sea view cottages and sea front cottages. The cottages have spacious, green, open to the sky showers and porch swings, while the sea front places offer hammocks. Their service and the Bay View restaurant are as one would expect of a Taj property. But the winning feature is the beach. The 1.5 km stretch maintained by Taj is exceptionally clean and empty. The cove is practically private, with the occasional fishermen wandering in from the adjoining colony, as they go about their regular fishing. There are comfortable recliners and umbrellas, with a guard and watch tower overlooking the space. Any time of the day or night, one can spend hours resting in the shade or walking by the sea. Despite the wash-up much further down the beach, the waters here are clean. I could not have imagined a more ideal location to rest and rejuvenate.

눉My husband and I love walking along the beach. It's a shame that the hotel and the local community don't undertake to clear up more of it. The abundance of jackdaws swooping and squawking was unpleasant. No local wine.
눇The location of our bungalow was superb - looking out towards the sea. Loved the outside shower, too. Food in the Bay View restaurant delicious.
