Waterfront property with an old school feel and modern amenities. Other than the fact that a bidet would've been nice, and there were a couple of snafus with their restaurant and chef's availability, it was a wonderful and unforgettable experience. The famous restaurant was under renovation so it was a bit disappointing. We had also booked a cooking class with their exec chef and there were some glitches in how that was planned and so we had to cancel. Having said that, their staff are just brilliant. They took care of our every need and ensured that we got a taste of true Kerala culture in every possible way. They have a few assigned auto walahs who, for a fair price, take the tourists on trips around fort kochi. We had two of the best auto walahs - Sanish and Nasir. Both were so nice, easy going, helpful and candid. There was no tourist hounding behavior or anything. Very relaxed yet entertaining.
The views from the sea facing rooms are just spectacular. Couldn't have asked for more.

We stayed at the Taj in the last week of October (perfect weather) and were blown away by the hospitality offered by Sunil and his team. As someone who has stayed in many chain and boutique hotels worldwide, I would remember this stay for the exceptional care and attention to detail by the staff. Alex and Anoop also deserve a particular mention for the way they looked after us at the restaurant.
Everyone was genuinely attentive to our needs and everything from the food to the sunset cruise was top notch. As I left the hotel, I honestly felt that Sunil in particular deserves an award for how this hotel is run.
I specifically picked this hotel for the use of wifi-a lot of hotels as I travel frequently and for long periods and email/skpe import I looked at on line did not have wi-fi. Unlike hotels in major cities where often free- you had to pay about 4 times price internet cafe. however each night I went to use and I had a problem with initial connection and had to go to reception to get them to ring maintenance (who had gone home to fix)- some nights took nearly 1 hour to fix. for a hotel advertising as a business hotel- they need to improve of this and get a more reliable modem. Most other things fine-although standard of bathroom needs an upgrade
This is a good hotel with great restaurant, clean and well kept, only drawback is has terrible humming sound I am the room, I don't know if it's the gen set or anything else, and secondly there are many restricted to photography areas as it is next to the cochin port... It feels little uncomfortable as there are boards of the notice every 10 feet, otherwise it's good.
