I have visited this property quite a few times and each time, it's a totally different expreince!
Right from the reception till the time you enter the room and afterwards, the experience of the warm Kerala hospitality is amazing! Lats couple of times I had the same view from the room - Open from 2 sides to the sea, probably just above the floating sea-food restaurant - Absolutely breathtaking! Every once a while huge container ships would pass by and sometimes, as a display of their enormous size and strength, would blow the horn!
Inifinity pool - Nice to relax
Yoga room near the Gym - great place to get in touch with your spiritual side. The pictures on the wall represent all the poses for the Surya Namaskar Yoga ritual
They organize a free Ferry Boat Trip to the Chinese fishing nets near the opening of the bay area of the sea
They have a Floating restaurant - where they have the breakfast spread in the morning and becomes the speciality sea food restaurant for Lunch / Dinner
The entire Hotel is built on an Island which is accessable only through the Navy Dock area
The staff was sharing with me that Taj has recently taken up a small island near the fishing village (from the Ferry ride) where they would organize day trips for leasure activities - really look forward to that coming through before my next trip
Best place to stay in Kochi!!!
