We stayed in superior charm–sea view room, with great view of the beach and pool. The room was neat but bathroom was too small and congested. Hospitality was something I must appreciate. Breakfast and service at seagull was great. First day we had lunch at seagull and we didn't like it much. We had the most disappointing dinner of my... More

Where does one start? We checked in on the 26 of July for 2 nights and has been the best resort hotel till date. The service - impeccable, the food - outstanding, the breakfast - definitely something you'd want to wake up for. The swimming pool is quite nicely designed. Enough room for the entire hotel to swim in. The... More

Service is beyond exceptional especially in the dining room where the staff is phenomenal. Front desk is just ok. Rooms are tired especially cottages next to the sea and are in serious need of a overhaul....hopefully they will renovate soon. Beach is excellent and very local. Would recommend for a nice getaway

The cottages are good and the open showers are unique however the being the beach resort the beach is totally unfriendly .... Steep- high waves - hot and humid even in morning - maybe the chennai weather is the culprit. The property has ample greenery however the breakfast was below average, maybe they are used to conference crowd who grabs... More

Location, location, location. On the Bay of Bengal, with an outstanding beachfront restaurant and bar (can't get any closer without being in the water). After being here three times, my advice is to try to stay in the cottages. The lack of competition in this area and proximity for business visitors to the tech area seem to deter Taj from... More

Sadly a favourite place to stay in the past, has run down. The rooms are badly kept and average. Air conditioning didn't work for 4 villas we booked, had to call engineering at midnight and yet didn't work. The service was above average. Food was great. I am surprised Taj would allow their property to work so poorly. The interesting... More

Stayed at the Fisherman's Cove for a weekend in June'14. We were 3 couples and had 3 rooms. The hotel just isn't a Taj. The behavior of the staff right from arrival to check out left us disappointed. Arrival staff took way too long for us to check in. No courtesies either. The rooms we got were in the new... More

I have only good things to say about this 48 acre property. There is an old building which houses the reception and some sea facing rooms, ~12 old cottages on the beach, ~64 new villas and another new building with swanky rooms , spa , gym, banquet etc spread all over. They have multiple golf carts that help you ply... More

Enjoy and relax in the set.ting by the beach. Breakfast can be a bit chaotic, but the location set in gardens by a clean and safe beach outweigh the breakfast experience. Dinner by the beach is a must with fresh fish on the menu daily. A wonderful place to relax.

Vivanta by Taj - Fisherman's Cove, Chennai, built on the ramparts of an old Dutch fort, is now riding on a fresh new wave. Yet it remains the charming beach resort that's almost one with the Bay of Bengal. Where fun lovers return for good times. There's a nice new buzz however.
