A fantastic and terrific guest experience!
Gateway Varkala is a wonderful property with great employees who always work to enhance the guest experience. I would like to mention from the security guard at the front gate to associates in FO, F&B and a special mention to Aswathy, the FOM who made sure that our stay would be part of great memories especially during this time. Both the F&B associates in the restaurant had such a customer centric attitude which made the overall experience even better. Rooms were fabulous with a lovely view to the sea, clean, hygiene and completely safe. We would love to visit this property again some time in future. Thank you Aswathy and everyone for making our stay great. We appreciate it.

WOW - Great staff n great Host - Mr. Shobhit.
It was lock-down, pool closed and very few guests... And we were treated like 'athithi devo bhava'... Mr. Shobhit and his team made it like a dream come true.. Delicious food, beautiful room .. personally Shobhit came with a beautiful smile and so much positivity many a times.. It was a super wonderful experience at Taj Gateway.. a beautiful dinner and b'day celebration for us.. lovely cake and all the staff shared our happiness .. Mr. Shobhit called the next Taj where we were going to stay requesting them for a better room... if possible with a personal pool as my 2.5 yr old son was asking again and again at Gateway and they were not having a room with pool in property so he was trying to get us in the next.... We asked for an extra bucket and some hangers there...when we reached the next Taj, they already arranged that for us based on the information they got from Gateway.. hmm, he came to see us off.. the guard came to call us as they spotted a pea cock in their garden... awesome food... there's a temple nearby which is closed but they have an elephant which Mr. shobhit recommended us to take our son their so that he will be happy.. we saw that it was wonderful but touching was a person came from hotel on bike to confirm if we were allowed or we need any help... that beautiful smile when i told him that yes, all was fine was amazing.. lovely people at heart !! Amazing day it was ... Thank you Mr. Shobhit and team... Thanks !

Can't wait to visit again
I had the most comfortable stay in Taj this time. The kind of service and staff's attitude was really good, starting from the security in the gate till the waiter in restaurant. I'm looking forward to visit again soon. We really loved the view from our room and also they made sure all covid protocols are being followed.

Courteous staff, extremely neat rooms, and scenic view
All the Kerala dishes were amazing. Disappointed with other cuisines. The Chinese and the sandwiches were bland as it lacked the flavor.
