The Taj Green Cove Kerala Reviewed By A Package Holiday Traveller

I sometimes read package holiday reviews by travellers before choosing a resort, and the Taj Green Cove was such a resort.

I’d like to give my review for what it is worth, and the first thing I’d like to say is that we had a great time, and it wasn’t that expensive, in fact cheaper than other options in Kerala.

Indeed we met several young couples who were definitely on honeymoons on a shoestring budget, and although I wouldn’t regard this Taj as one of the cheap honeymoon spots, eating out is so inexpensive that you can offset the cost of a good hotel by eating out.

Here is my opinion on the Taj Green Cove Resort Kerala.

The spa is amazingly good, the price was relatively cheap, but then again we hadn’t bargained for the 25% taxes, but even allowing for that the cost is reasonable, but missing from the spa was a sauna and Jacuzzi.

The nice pool and the spa make up for the fact that the Taj Green Cove is not on the beach, so you can be misled by the name, and although we realised this we didn’t realise it was a ten minute ride in a tuktuk to the Lighthouse beach, and this can be off putting.

To be fair the resort and the accommodation were well up to international five star standards. We were in a suite, lovely view, luxurious, DVD player, in fact most of the trimmings, including a beautiful view.

The swimming pool is an infinity pool, with overhanging tropical plants, but kept especially clean when you consider all the foliage. We spent a lot of very relaxing time around the pool.

The food did not inspire, and the Curries restaurant promised more than it delivered, and we were a bit disappointed in the breakfasts. As a result we ate out a lot, and whilst we found Lighthouse beach surrounds, and the beach itself pretty tacky, there were plenty of eating houses/shacks within easy walking reach.

Finally the staff were all very helpful, very willing to please, and unobtrusive, always the sign of a high class resort.

I would return to The Taj Green Cove, because I am not too concerned about being on a beach, but if you are then probably this isn’t the place for you.
