Reaching The Resort: Reached Mangalore Airport from Chennai through SpiceJet around 9. 0 am. Booked taxi through Kerala Tourism and they charged 2750 for Etios and reached the resort in 2 hours. Distance is around 70 km. Location: Located in Kasaragod around the river Nombili with the beach on the other side. Resort has an internal Lagoon. Tariff: I booked through Taj directly and the amount paid is 16358 for Superior Room With Sit Out room that is non-inclusive of Breakfast. Check-In: On Arrival, they gave us welcome drinks that is not fresh but a bottled one. It would be better if they can server tender coconut or some fresh juice. Check-in was quick and they accommodated our request for early check-in as we reached by 12 pm. Being Taj Epicure member, I had upgrade voucher and my room got upgraded to next level DELUXE VILLA WITH COURTYARD with courtyard. Room: It was kind of a villa with separate compound and gated with maximum privacy, even the Bathtub was in the open air and more than 1000 square feet space. Bed Room was awesome with splendid views and with all the amenities(Minibar, Bathrobe & Slippers, Ironing Board, Hair Dryer, 37 Inch Tv, In Room Safe)Of a 5-star resort. It has a small fountain and the Bathtub was covered with candles. It has a big swing with bed, where all family members can lie down and enjoy the swing. Room was big with a soft king size bed. Rest room has full-length mirror that was exceptionally good and all the luxury amenities. Family of 2 adults and 2 kids can stay comfortably. Food: Food was little let down and not up to the taj standards. Breakfast was really good and they provide complimentary snacks and tea in the evening. Food was expensive, even curd rice costs around 600rs. Service: We didn't get great service when we requested for bubble Bath the service guy arrived late. When we requested for additional soap it was delivered next day, didn't expect this from Taj. Next day manager reached to us and expressed apology for the issues we faced. Being my kids birthday they did an extraordinary room decoration and provided complimentary cake and chocolates. Restaurant: Food taste is OK but they took lot of time to deliver even curd rice. We informed them up front that we have an infant and need the food soon still around 45 minutes was taken. Activities: Not much activities. Even the kids play area is under renovation and for long time. Pros: Location, Room. Cons: Service. Lack of Activities
This is a wonderful place for spending quality time with family or friends . The nearest airport to Baikal is Managlore which is about 2 hours away. The drive from the airport to Kasargod and Baikal in the Malabr region was quite scenic . Location of Taj Baikal is just amazing- one can access the serene backwaters as well as the beach easily from the hotel. There are many activities including canoeing and paddle boating which one could do here (at an extra cost). We spent most of our time exploring the beautiful property and walking beside the backwaters or at the quiet Kapilla beach . The staff is polite and the service top notch. Well worth the effort and money spent
The property is very beautiful. We stayed in one of the villa rooms which had it's own swimming pool. The room was beautiful, with an outside bed swing, outside bathtub and pool. It is well worth staying in one of these rooms to fully enjoy the property The staff was very obliging and will even help you create a beautiful bubble Bath in the outside tub The let down to this property is the food. We tried everything from italian to south Indian, but unfortunately it just wasn't good at all, which was a shame You can go to visit the fort from here. Would suggest going in the autorickshaw which is much cheaper than the hotel transport Overall great property and service, only let down by the food.
Beautiful property !. We booked the Premium villa with plunge pool. It was absolutely gorgeous and spacious. Loved the private pool. The property is breathtaking and opens out to the beach which is clean, private and amazing. The activities were wonderful like kayaking and boating. The Jiva spa center is fabulous with many different therapies to chose from. The food at Backwater cafe is delicious (a la chart and the cocktails are pretty good at the Ivory bar. The staff is kind and courteous. We had an amazing time at the hotel, would definitely visit again. Would like to thank and appreciate Supratik for helping me out to chose the villa and giving us an amazing room with amazing location, also would like to appreciate and give thanks to Amrutha & Anjesha from the font desk for wonderful hospitality upon arrival and during the stay and Sudhakar & Daulat from the Backwater cafe for their excellent service and hospitality.
If you want to spend time with your loved one at a romantic getaway, head here !. The place where Tu Hi Re song from Bombay was shot, also just adds to the romance. The hotel is well known for its pool villas which offer private and quiet time. Backwater cafe, the restaurant here as well, offers amazing food (the usual menu you would find at Vivantas).
On a holiday trip with my beloved family We went to Baikal in the month of October 2016. We directly went to the hotel and booked a room to stay. The destination was an awesome place. The hotel was located far from the airport. But it was a comfortable place to stay. The interior and exterior appearance of the hotel was very neat and clean. The service staff were provided a quick service for us. The provided room was well arranged and spacious. The bathroom was clean and hygienic. All the basic amenities were provided in the room. The bed was clean and comfortable. The WiFi facility was available in the room. The receptionist was humble and friendly. They did check in and check out process on time. The pick and drop facility was available in the hotel. We had food from the hotel it was delicious and served hot. The complimentary breakfast was provided in the hotel. The swimming pool facility was available in the hotel. It was a very nice.
I had a lovely 4 day break at Vivanta By Taj, Baikal. We were staying in an indulgence premium villa, and really loved the day bed and the pool. Much to my surprise, the pool was actually quite deep and one could take a proper swim in it. The Bath tub outside was quite nice too. The room itself was spacious and comfortable. I think it is definitely one of the best resorts, I have stayed at. The only let down for me are the following- 1) The food at the resort was really not to my liking. Breakfast was still good, but dinner and lunch was quite poor in my opinion. 2) Activities in Baikal are very limited, so make sure that you take some entertainment with you. The hotel definitely tries to fill up your time with some adventure sports options, but truthfully, they are limited by weather conditions in Baikal itself Wonderful mini-break!
Excellent location, scenic villa's, backwaters and beach just out of this world, restaurant by the bay - amazing seafood quality and service wonderful and sincere, the breakfast experience though very poor today, long wait for Tea and little choice, let's hope day 2 and 3 better
I visited this resort in the month of December 2016 for holiday trip. The destination was good as it was a small town as the resort was the best part. The location of the resort was excellent as they have a private beach and it was very good. The appearance of the resort was good as it was maintained clean. Receptionist at this resort was very good as they were helpful too. The services at this resort were excellent since they were friendly too. The room at this resort was very good, spacious and good art work too with good facilities. I did not take any food at this resort as I had outside. There was spa and the activities were excellent and The WiFi was very good in connection. They provided pick up and drop facility but we did not use it. There was a backwater boating and it was good. The overall experience was very good. I recommend this resort to other travellers.
Outstanding Location, backwater views were simply stunning, Beautiful property, worth every penny, must visit for nature lovers, very serene and calm, good food, great hospitality, when in Kerala, one must visit taj bekal, offers a complete luxury experience.
