Taj by Vivanta Kumarakom

At a Glance


  • trees are populated by winged residents of the nearby bird sanctuary
  • nice pool-facing gym
  • plenty of activities for children


  • not as carefully maintained as other Taj properties—the central lake, for example, has a stagnant green tinge
  • pricey

Taj by Vivanta Kumarakom Review

The main building of this tranquil, verdant resort is an 1891 plantation house, built by the son of an English missionary. Its large rooms open onto broad verandas, and overlook a small lagoon where you can canoe or pedal-boat. The terrace is a lovely place to relax with a glass of lime juice. Guest quarters are in the main house, in detached cottages, or in stationary houseboats. Twelve of the cottages were newly built in 2004 and have views of the lake. Vembanad Lake is a short boat ride away down a woodsy canal.
