The Vivanta by Taj Bekal is located in the lush confines of northern Kerala. Spread over 26 manicured acres, it is a stylish and serene retreat on the Arabian Sea with 71 unique rooms designed to reflect Kettuvallam house boats and the culture of Kerala.
Rooms and villas at the Vivanta by Taj Bekal are spread throughout the landscaped gardens next to the Kappil beach shore and include living spaces opening onto terraces overlooking the landscaped gardens, backwaters, beach, and the sea. Balinese design influences the rooms, with Chitra Pothi art on the walls and hand-woven bamboo ceilings. Deluxe Delight rooms include a private courtyard or private plunge pools, and the ten premium Indulgence villas are spacious, including private plunge pools and courtyards with outdoor showers.
Dine on a variety of dishes at Latitude, the Vivanta by Taj Bekal’s multi-cuisine restaurant featuring flavors of regional Kerala cuisine. If advance notice is given, guests can also dine like the locals with dishes served on banana leaves. When spending the day at the pool, the outdoor grill cooks up delicious barbecue, while the Ivory Bar is a soothing place to hang out with a chilled mixed drink.
Explore the Kappil River, which runs through the property, by kayak or take the adventure out to the sea. Boating, rowing, and fishing are also available. To really unwind and relax, book a session at the Jiva Grand Spa, Vivanta by Taj Bekal’s spacious and luxurious spa, or practice balance and flexibility in the yoga pavilion.
