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.

Good but needs improvement
The property and ambiance is good and enjoyable. Had a great time exploring the beauty of the resort and the experience of the activities like the cycling, zip line and boating. The improvement is required in the quality of food.

Really felt home away from home!!! What a amazing hospitality, Staff and location !!
Priya at the front office was outstanding... I call myself a demanding guest, but the way she dealt with all our needs were exceptional. We travel a lot across the globe and I can confidently say that this is one of the top 3 places I have experienced. The Resturant staff.. Suresh, Anand, Madhu, Devi, Noel and the GM go all the way out to make U feel at home. The property has a great history and heritage and the staff are very knowledgeable and shared a lot of trivia about the place. The hospitality team have kept up the premises very very clean. I was so amazed that they asked us to plant a tree and that for me was the most personal and hearting moment. I have now decided to visit them every year to see the plant turn to a tree and meet all the great people working at the property.
