Kerala 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.

Leisure at it’s best
From our overall trip, This by any all means was the best and the finest of what we experienced. The overall property, the ambience, the ecosystem, the landscape, the rooms the decor, every thing was at its best. The rooms were larger than life, the open bathroom Was the icing on the cake. They have beautiful activities to be done at the property from archery, table tennis l, carrom, kayaking, zip line etc… all very beautifully Designed within the ecosystem. You can do cycling throughout the property spread over 13 acres. Experience a beautiful evening by the lake side watching beautiful boats moving around. Evening is splendid when the lights go on. The reflection of the hotel in the lake is mesmerising to see. The overall stay is a fantabulous experience to be at the TAJ.

Blew us away - you guys were amazing
We knew that Taj would be good. We came with high expectations. But even then, the treatment we received exceeded our expectations. We were amazed by the hospitality of individual staff members and were left wondering: "How can each and every staff member in a place be so kind and caring?" We will definitely plan to visit more of your properties, if our purse allows for it :). The only thing is that our expectations will be even higher next time round!
