Overview

Lagoonside sleep overlooking the Arabian Sea with a choice of three restaurants and an ayurvedic spa

The Lowdown

On a verdant hillside, the Vivanta by Taj Kovalam Kerala is an immaculate lagoonside property with spectacular views of the Arabian Sea. Swaying palms, tropical flowers and tinkling fountains set the scene for the 59 Balinese-style cottages, which feature thatch roofs, colonial-style furniture and private balconies. The bathrooms are suitably swish, with mosaic tile walls, oversize tubs and Forest Essentials toiletries. When it comes to dining, there are tons of excellent options. Try Indian specialties at Curries, seafood dishes -including wood-fired red snapper and mango shrimp curry – at the property’s beachside restaurant, Bait, or international options at Jasmine Bay. Relax with a poolside sundowner and enjoy the sea views at the Neera bar. And don’t leave without visiting the Jiva Spa; the Plantain Leaf Body Wrap is a house speciality.

In the Area

Float down the estuary on a backwater adventure; you’ll pass giant palms, spice plantations and coconut groves. Then stop at the tranquil village of Poovar to join a Keralan cooking class or kick back at Poovar Beach, an idyllic stretch of golden sand rarely visited by tourists. For the best local handicrafts, head to the nearby Kovalam market to shop for quality sarongs, teak statues, carpets and jewelry.

The rooms are very well appointed and well taken care of. The staff is very courteous we did miss playing on the beach since the water levels are risen but the view was mesmerizing. The place is a must visit

Coming back to presidential suite

Amazing location, amazing staff. Absolutely enjoyed the stay at The Taj Kovalam. Great food at all the restaurants but our favourite would have to be JASMINE BAY. A special shout out to Sudheer, Aathivaraam, Shiva, Tanisha, Sarath, Keerti, Gopikanth, Rohit, Ranjini, Karthik and Madhan. Awesome hospitality, felt like one big family.

Highly recommend Taj to anybody. Will definitely be back soon.
