Watch out when the exterior of the property looks this good in a rural India setting. It can mean the interior will disappoint. And this Taj does on many levels. The rooms and common areas are tired and drab. The furniture on the BBQ patio is so heavy, it takes two people to move the chairs. The interior design is... More

This hotel was a dream to stay in. After hours on the road seeing the Caves and the Sonehri Mahal it was nice to come back to a nice room and some great food! Breakfast here is killer good. Our waiter urged us to try the Indian food and it was wonderful. I would stay here if ever in this... More

We chose the Taj after reading reviews of how families rated the place. The biggest selling point was a baby cot, since our baby exclusively sleeps in one. The room already had a cot when we entered, which was a nice surprise and most useful, because after all the travel it was nice to be able to put the baby... More

This property is of the high standards of Taj. The architecture is of the Mogul period. The rooms are surprisingly large. My room had a balcony overlooking the pool and manicured lawns. The breakfast was very good Located centrally and about 2 hrs from Ajanta caves and 40 mins from Ellora caves

This is a charming property with comfortable, well laid out rooms but what makes it exceptional is the level of service - prompt & with warm smiles. My only request to the management would be - please put a couple of chairs & a small table on the balcony so guests can sit out and enjoy a coffee in the... More

The resort property is simple and natural but adjacent to a college and hemmed in which detracts from the overall appeal of the resort which is dated. The restaurants and rooms are not exactly what I would expect from a Taj property and the service was average. Not sure there are any better options thought if you are hoping to... More

We were so glad to return to our rooms at Vivanta by Taj after long days at Ellora and Ajanta. The rooms were clean and comfortable with modern amenities. The staff are all trained to offer the most friendly and excellent service which really enhanced our stay.

I chose this hotel as I feel Taj Group are the best in our country and I did not regret my decision even for once. Excellent stay, good food, good ambiance and except a stray incident of a cockroach in the bath tub, my stay has been excellent. The travel desk are very helpful. Waiters are courteous and so are...

Very exotic spread of comfort, and hospitality. Hotel management institute next door ensures plenty of trainees eager to please you thoroughly. Washroom was run of the mill kind, a facelift is needed. Food is average, service at the restaurant needs improvement. Overall a good place to stay, could be better after a little renovation, and better food quality.

Truly an amazing experience. Friendly staff eager to help. jitesh travelled that extra mile for us-we being senior citizens-and packed light snacks for us to take with us to the Ajanta Caves. At first it seemed unnecessary. But, after visiting the caves we really needed to refuel and this came in handy. Thanks Jitesh, very thoughtful of you. Yes there... More
