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.
How to Get There
There is something about Taking Hospitality which keeps you coming back for more. Our experience at Taj Green Cove Resort, Kovalam was no different. Stayed with mother for three nights and was a very memorable stay. Beautiful clean property and always smiling eager to help staff. Rooms were spacious and service was top notch.
Special mention to the following at the Green Cove:
Manager - Mr Venpugal who was very kind and informative since our arrival.
Duty Manager Eesha - Who helped with late check-out, arrangement of our comp dinner( as a part of our package)
Restaurant Manager - Mr Sudheer who was very very hospital and kind enough to give us recipes of the rameshwaram idli and beetroot and cabagge chutney which was delicious and also prsenting mother with a banana halwa she wanted to taste.
Last but not the least a very special mention to Ashitha who was very attentive to our needs throughout. She even accompanied my mother for evening tea as I had some work conmitments, took us boating and put in extra efforts to make our stay special.
In the latest trend of American hospitality, the warm Indianess of Taj hospitality wins you over. Highly recommended for leisure travel.
Amazing stay, perfect ambience, great hospitality, amazing property, great food at curries and jasmine bay, beautiful evening complimentary snacks at bait. Awesome scenic view. I would highly recommend to friends n families.
We spent only one night at Taj Green Cove and were totally enveloped by its unimaginable green cover all over and the beauty of nature around. It is such a beautiful Resort.
Loved the Room with the Sea view - it was simply blissful to stand out in the balcony and watch the rain. Monsoons had just arrived and we were really happy to witness it.
The GM, Mr. Lalith Viswakumar, certainly deserves a mention because of his personalised touch, customer-centric approach and attention to detail. EXCELLENT! Hotels make clients want to come back, due to such Managers. . We need more of this Tribe :) Thanks a Lot, Lalith.
We had spent 3 nights at The Leela Raviz, Kovalam, prior to this. Although, The Leela is also a Beautiful Property and has breathtaking views, yet they do not know anything about Customer Service. Their Food was highly average and their Service below average. I think they should send their Staff to Taj to get trained.
Would love to go back to Taj Green Cove again - either in winters or during Monsoon time.
Keep it up, Taj Green Cove . . You are worth visiting again!
Amazing experience. Wonderful place in the lap of nature. A great place for bonding with family and friends. Nestled on a hillock by the shores of the Arabian sea , the Taj Green Cove Resort & Spa Kovalam is your private get away from the hustle and bustle of urban life.
The evening welcome tea by the rocky seashore with the roar of the waves splashing on the rocks was so soothing and transcendental.
Dinner at Bait by the sea side was heavenly. The sea food sizzler left me with a lingering taste of the oceanic delights.
I must say “ If you want to get yourself soaked in happiness and peace” then stay here at least 3 nights.
Unlike any other hotel in Trivandrum, Taj Green Cove Resort & Spa Kovalam will etch your heart and mind with memories of the flora and fauna, simply walk around the place if you love flowers you will not miss to sea bougainvillea, bluebells, hibiscus and so many others.
I won’t say more, let me leave some mysteries for you.
Beautiful courteous polite willing to make your holiday comfortable in home away from home surroundings...looking ahead to visit for second holiday soon with memories to stay in same place with hope to meet and experience same warmth of Taj Hospitality
