We had a fantastic time with Taj green cove resort kovalam. Very closed to the beach and good view from the swimming pool. It was unforgettable experience as everything was perfect and exceeded our expectation.
Came here for 3 days as the 'flop and drop' part of a long tour. It is perfect!! Greeted with garlands of flowers and a lovely drink, then shown to our room, where our bags were waiting. From then on it was the most heavenly relaxing break.
The staff are wonderful...
I had stupidly eaten some 'street food' prior to coming, (it was that or starve!), and was suffering the consequences. Shadab in the Jasmine, and others, went out of their way to help; providing me with a special concoction (sugar water and lemon - it worked!!), and making sure I was eating the right type of food.
The hotel is amazing, spread out over a large area down to the sea. Daily at 5.30 there was tea served on the beach at Bait, in time to watch the sun set over the Arabian Sea. Absolutely beautiful. The infinity pool was delightful; warm and relaxing.
But again, it was the service that stood out. A shout out to Shadab and Sudeer in particular. Everybody was wonderfully helpful; illustrated by the chap who, when I was trying to dry my swimwear in the broken spin-dryer, took them away, saying he would be back in 30 mins. He was; with my dry trunks in a laundry bag - and ironed!!! Stupendous.
Here again, it was the custom not to tip individuals, but to leave any reward at reception at he end of the stay. An excellent idea, and one all hotels should follow. As I said when doing so...
'We are not rich, but you made us feel like millionaires!!' Thank you, I hope we will come back someday.
We stayed at this Hotel for 4 nights from Feb 26th onwards this year in 2020. After having traveled to various parts of Kerala we chose Kovalam as our last destination which truly turned out to be the right decision! The location, the arrival welcome, smooth check in and the beauty of lush Kerala vegetation surrounding the hotel was quite noticeable. We stayed in the garden view facing room and everything about it was great...
Sitting in the balcony overlooking the nature listening to the birds was very relaxing! Bed was firm and very comfortable. Room was super clean and there was no shortage of complimentary water both in the room or when requested. In room service was fast. We met many wonderful staff people during our stay but the one who truly stood out among many was this young lady Reshmi whom we had the fortune of meeting and talking to during both breakfast and dinner times. She was friendly, pleasant and made sure that we were attended to well. She gave us many tips on how and where to visit the landmarks of the city which was very helpful. We felt so blessed when on our last day Reshmi surprised us with a box with a slice of cake inside as our departure gift!! This girl gives a personal touch to the guests, is an asset to the hotel and deserves the well earned recognition! However, we felt that the food and service here could be better. There was not enough variety, a spinach dish had some strong chemical smell and the wait time during non buffet time was extremely slow. The cooking quality in the Jasmine Bay restaurant left much to be desired, the food served simply wasn't very tasty. I hope the hotel makes a note of this and brings the necessary changes. Rest everything else was top notch.
We spent two nights here as part of a week long Kerala tour. The hotel is in a wonderful close to the Ocean with the most amazing sunset views from the pool. Our accommodation was amongst rich green vegetation and very peaceful at night. The food was. of a very high quality...
The real highlight was the friendly efficiency of the staff in all areas. A special mention to Sudeer, who made us so welcome and arranged a small leaving ceremony for us including cake! Tanisha and Nikki were two of the exceptional staff in the restaurant. we would thoroughly recommend staying at the Taj Green Cover Resort! Stay safe everyone
This property is one of the most amazing. The layout, the nature, vegetation, vibe, and the boat ride, views of the sunset over the ocean is something that you only see in the movies.
We were a family traveling South India for one month and this was one of the best resorts to stay at.
Nagaraju Atti Varam - you are a true master at your craft...
You made our stay very comfortable.
Food - very good, tasty, and traditional. thanks to
We had many servers but the one who stood out at the top of the crowd was Reshmi - she is a true asset to the organization. She is well spoken, understands the guests needs and make sure that everything is done professionally and in a timely manner. She has sooo much knowledge of the area and South India in general. Again she is a true asset and we are blessed to have met her on our journey.
Sudeer S - expert on history, everything India, and everything food - his recommendations were on point everytime.
Shadab Khan - you are a great addition to the team. You make every moment entertaining and are able to relate to guests at a human level.
Nikon Jacob - you are a master in the kitchen
Natesh V - a true pleasure to meet you - thank you for personalizing our experience.
The front desk was well supported by Vinpugal D - thank you for taking good care of us.
Would definitely stay here again the property is a great location and its beautiful to just chill out here. Pool is in a great place - except the restaurant is right there - a bit of privacy would be good & one last thing the staff could not get rid of the smell in my shower (1 room out of 3 that were booked for the family) other then that all good reviews.
