Our 5 star resort in Bekal has 75 laterite villas and rooms inspired by the design of Ketuvallam houseboats beckon you in. Relax, catch up on some much needed rest, and unwind as you soak in the relaxed surroundings. Kerala’s famous palm leaf drawings, called Chitra Pothi, are recreated on tussar silk that have mythological and spiritual themes. Explore our courtyards that are beautiful and airy, using a wanton amount of space. As you look around, you’re sure to find some Indonesian influences too. Enjoy some private time or some romantic moments in your private plunge pool. Or put on a pair of walking shoes and view the Kappil beach shoreline that touches our manicured lawns and landscaped gardens. Be sure to carry your camera. Revitalize with our authentic Ayurveda therapies or opt for some personalised wellness menus at the Jiva Spa at Taj Bekal. This spa is internationally renowned for its treatments by the hands of skilled therapists. This is where you come to naturally align your mind, body and soul. Taj Bekal especially recommends the Alepa – an intimate yet anointing ritual that cleanses your body’s stress. The sprawling resort offers a host of activities, which you can experience alone or with friends and family. The Taj Bekal resort is set amidst a canopy of abundant greenery which makes for great walks or even sit-outs. Or go birding and you’ll come away having spotted sunbirds, magpies, and the more majestic purple heron and white-bellied sea eagle. Early birds can rise and shine and venture out for a 4-km walk on the borders of the resort. The sight of fishermen in their coloured boats is worth it.
