Taj Taj Kumarakom Resort and Spa Kerala

Taj Kumarakom Resort & Spa, Kerala

Taj Kumarakom Resort & Spa is a slice of history, a part of nature and a family estate converted into a resort 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 resort 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.

Excellent hospitality
Taj is always known for it’s hospitality but this property staff took it to a whole new level. They were so courteous from the beginning that is even before we reached. Everyone were so welcoming and polite. They offered us with the best villa in their property as an upgrade. And took care of us even before we could ask for something. Anand, AnuLu, Noyal, Allen, Madhu, Ashirbad , Priya, the chef, the security & the rest of the staff that were present all were up to the mark. Specially Madhu & Anand they took care of our food and even surprised us with a dinner by the deck which was done up so well. Kudos to all of you’ll. We will definitely come back soon!
