Bekal is a hidden gem in Northern Kerala, living the essence of the state’s motto, God’s Own Country. Located near the town of Kasaragod, this small village features many of Kerala’s tropical treats without the emerging congestion. From tranquil backwaters that local people call home, to a beautiful untouched stretch of shallow beach with panoramic views of the Arabian Sea, this is an ideal sunshine retreat. A surprising element to this small hideaway is the imposing Bekal Fort, a 17th century giant keyhole shaped citadel that spreads over 40 acres and is frequently licked by the ocean.
Located between the backwaters and a fine sand beach in an unspoiled part of North Kerala, this new Taj hotel is a perfect oasis for luxury and relaxation and is also home to one of the best and largest spas in all of Asia.
