Reviews: The Taj Green Cove Kerala

Reviews: The Taj Green Cove Kerala

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.

Backpacking with your family: Is it possible?

Backpacking with your family: Is it possible?

For families who are wanting to take family vacations that will be peaceful and memorable, you don’t always have to spend a fortune. My favorite memories of spending time with my family weren’t in the islands or theme parks, they were of camping. Of course, not every family craves spending time in the great outdoors. I know some families who can’t live without electricity and a comfy bed. There are other options. If you’re looking to travel someplace, see if there are package deals that might include all of your meals. That could save your family quite a bit of money. Visit the beaches in the off-season to take advantage of lower rates and smaller crowds of people. Visit local destinations instead of venturing farther away. Also, be sure to bring with you a luggage set that is very durable and light weight for any younger children like IT luggage (click here for it luggage reviews). And remember, family vacations aren’t always about where you go or how much money you spend – it is about making memories.

Picking a new perfume for your travels

Picking a new perfume for your travels

You don’t have to spend a lot of money to get the finest perfume and cologne on the market. All that is required is a lot of patience and a ton of online shopping. You can find fantastic deals on perfume and cologne through discount online stores but they don’t necessarily pop up right away.

You want to make sure that you include the word “discount” or “wholesale” in your search. I tried looking for perfume and cologne at reduced prices and I chose the word “cheap” in my search. Evidently, the vendors had no concept of what that term means because there was nothing cheap in the selection.

How To Not Get Scammed In Thailand

How To Not Get Scammed In Thailand

The greatest problem to you as a foreign traveler is from leasing a motorbike in the country. This is – by a long shot – the #1 reason why people get scammed out in thailand.

Alternate risks are frequently self perpetrated. Individuals go to Full Moon Party, see bunches of medications on offer, and afterward they get the false impression that Thailand is remiss on medications when as a general rule they are no picnic for medications. In 2003, the administration went on a cleanse actually murdering 2,500 street pharmacists and medication addicts. Remember this at whatever point you begin supposing it’s OK to smoke up in Thailand. On the off chance that you keep running into the wrong cop that is not being paid off, you will be coerced for $500-$2,000, (best case) or go to prison and sit tight for trial. (most noticeably awful result.) And in Thailand, you can spoil in jail for a long time before your case really goes to trial and you get your sentence. Gracious, one all the more thing; they do give you pee-tests in clubs/bars/when your taxi gets halted out and about. On the off chance that you have drugs in your circulation system, it IS ownership in Thailand.
