Almost perfect
This is the 4th Taj Gateway property I've stayed at over the past couple of years and by far the most expensive. Compared to the previous three, this hotel had the best room, the best view and the best ambience. What let us down is the quality and the variety of the breakfast menu. There were too few dishes, and those that were there, dont deserve to be displayed in a hotel of this stature. Considering the premium charged by this hotel, compared to the other gateway properties, we expected more. Surely there must be a way for all the gateways to share this knowledge and keep improving. Nevertheless, the room offered the best comfort and made us stay indoors despite the popular tourist attractions nearby. The gardens are very well maintained. I would definitely love to come back for more.

The location and the pleasant and friendly staff really helped melt away the stress! I would not do justice if I didn’t mention Jomilin and Aswathy at the reception, Vishnu and Tony at the restaurant who were warm, sincere and very pleasant! They made me feel at home and happy! The only negative that I can mention is the morning buffet which just did not meet the Taj standards!! Items were very few, not much of a choice, cut fruits were not of the best quality and nothing tingled my taste buds! But ala carte dishes were all good. Thumbs up to that! Sad that we did not have buffets for lunch or dinner( off season I suppose) Ayurvedic massage session was very good too Overall I enjoyed my stay there minus the few negatives

Relaxed getaway
The hotel staff was very helpful. Food was good. Ambiance was good. Suggestion--Avoid plastic bottles for water. Provide hand shower in toilets. Provide some signage on the way towards the hotel.
