What can I say it is Taj! From the time of check in until check out everything was 5 star. The room was well furnished, clean, cozy and relaxing. Good AC, good wifi, everything good. I was over easter 2012 and after day out in Trivandrum we came to the room to find a white chocolate easter egg, I thought... More

We stayed for 3 nights in Aug 2014. I had no doubt about hospitality , location , overall property. From check in to Check out , it was all Taj Standard. Restaurant on Beach is must go. Location and view is very good. Do go for SPA in Jiva if visiting. No second thought if you are visiting Trivandrum. Rajnish

Rooms are well appointed. Staff in reception are helpful with south Indian flavour of hospitality. I often visit trivendrum for business and temple darsan. Food quality is great. Must try is Kerala puttu and kadala curry prepared by Cheff Hari, an athuntic south Indian hand. Must see temple is Lord Padmanabha Swamy Temple, for it's mighty architecture and serene shrine....

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
