Taj Taj Kumarakom Resort and Spa Kerala

Taj Kumarakom Resort & Spa, Kerala

5 Star Resort in Kumarakom, Kerala

Taj Kumarakom Resort & Spa is a slice of history, a part of nature and a family estate converted into a 5 star resort in Kumarakom where staying in one of only 28 exclusive villas or cottages amidst almost 15 acres of natural green cover is quite a unique experience in itself.

The resort takes you back to 1881 when the Baker’s family who are considered the founders of modern Kumarakom set up their residence here. The original bungalow still stands gracefully on the shore of a beautiful lagoon welcoming guests on its historical corridors while the rest of the facilities are distributed across the sprawling grounds most of which are interspersed with century old trees, water bodies and home to many rare species of animals with the Kumarakom bird sanctuary being only next door.

As a homage to its origins, the luxury resort in Kumarakom retains its colonial character in its design, styling and other appointments including artefacts, attire and décor. The cuisine is a generous mix of Taj signature dishes, comfort food and location inspired farm and backwaters cuisine. As a resort that is relatively small in size, guests get a feel of understated luxury, a soothing opulence and personalized attention from the team.

While the overwhelming impression of the “estate-resort” is that of a calm and relaxing holiday, professionally managed activities from a zip line or a kayaking lesson or a conducted village cycling tour to options of moonlight rafting or houseboats for overnight stays and lunch cruises are carefully interspersed into the stay so that those who seek a little bit of thrill are not going back disappointed.

No Taj holiday is complete without a spa sojourn and at Kumarakom it’s no different. The Jiva Spa here has its root as a half century old Ayurveda centre that has played host to several statesmen and managed by a qualified Ayurveda doctors even today in the role of the Wellness Manager.

This stay would certainly be a memory to cherish for years to come.!! Enjoyed every minute at the resort.
I am breaking down my feedback in 4 aspects 1. F&B : Although the resort was working with skeletal staff, the amount of care Mr.Anand and Mr.Madhu took to make sure that I was served well was exceptional. In fact it agonised me to see that both of them along with the team stayed back late night and came back next morning with a glee on their faces. Phenomenal hospitality from the above mentioned gentlemen. 2. Reception : Special kudos to Amal, Noel, Pria and Ribu who worked in tandem to make sure that our arrival, stay, logistics were addresses in a neat fashion. 3. Stay & Ambience : Whilst most of my stays at taj properties have been erected concrete buildings in the metro cities, the landscape at Kumarakam appealed to me from the moment I stepped in. Every nook and corner of the resort was well maintained and worth mentioning.! 4. Food : Lip smacking food all through the 2 day stay.! Whilst due to low occupancy there were limited food options both during lunch and breakfast but yet the team pulled off a stunner during every meal. Extremely glad that I could experience this with Taj. Looking forward to meeting the team soon.

Taj Kumarakom does Baker family proud
Mesmerizing stay at Taj Kumarakom. Impeccable Taj hospitality. Great food and service. Awesome plunge pool. Saw a couple of Kingfishers in the trees just behind Room 23. Spotted a few baby monitor lizards as well. My son had fun on the zipline and also playing paint ball. The highlight - apart from the fact that the ducks are fed idlis - was their boat , used in the August 2018 floods, now decommissioned and kept as a memorial. The furniture and the AC in the room are both "heritage" can be upgraded but overall a real fun experience.
