Perhaps low season/monsoon, smaller city location or a deliberate attempt to use Trivandrum as a training location but overall the staff seemed less experienced and the hotel a little shabby and/or worn. It has "great bones" and I can tell a solid foundation of style and expense to make the experience special but if you look closely lobby furniture is... More

As the hotel is brand new, the room was very good. The entire staff we met was very pleasing. Buffet there was my favorite, we all loved it. Only what i didnt like is the tax on each and every thing, they must do something on this

This hotel is clean, well managed, with good air conditioning and not open to the outside (beware other hotels that can get infestations if you open out on to gardens etc). It is quiet away from the road and the food is buffet style and perfectly acceptable. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

The Vivanta hotel is fantastic. From the moment you walk in you feel like royalty. I spent almost 2 weeks here. The food is some of the finest food I have ever had (especially lunch and dinner, breakfast is pretty good). The staff is always very friendly and helped us with very random favors.

Taj is standing at the same place where their smaller competitors are providing the same luxury at a lesser cost. This Taj has not improved its class and still living in the past glory on its brand name. Rooms are nothing great to boast. Laminated wood mocking floors are pealing off in many places. Bath Linens doesn't look that white... More

Though not the usual expansive Taj properties one is used to, still the hotel is nice, located near the public offices, and comfortable. The food is good, and staff is helpful, as you would expect in any Taj hotel. Surprisingly not many fish preparations in the menu, being in a coastal town.

Stayed at this city hotel for 4 nights on business trip. To be fair, I didn't choose this, as I was part of bigger group all staying together, but actually it was fine. Good points included quiet(ish) rooms, with reasonable bathroom, TV with multi-national channels (once you find them!) and a really good Chinese restaurant. Staff were also attentive. Decent... More

Taj Hotels are known for their hospitality. The ambience is awesome. From the reception to the room, the process was smooth. The room was spacious and good with a view to their swimming pool. I definitely recommend this hotel.

Taj properties are benchmark for hospitality industry. The service from the time of contact is prompt and response is extremely quick.
