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.
