This was a beautiful hotel in an amazing location. The staff were particularly helpful and attentive and dealt with requests promptly and courteously, as well as remembering individual requests a few days later and checking up to see that all was well. The grounds were well maintained and the site was kept secure by security guards at all exits to... More

Went for an official tour in July 14. The overall experience was very relaxing .The view from the room itself was very pleasing and seemed a perfect place to sip on a glass of wine accompanied by a good book.. The hotel is very open and the beach is very clean, although must say the water is way too salty... More

I loved it here. After a 2 and a half hour trip from the airport, we received a warm welcome with flower garlands and juice, which was perfect after 16 hours travelling. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and were always eager to please. Breakfast was a massive buffet with everything you could imagine, and again the staff were... More

We stayed here in June/July 2014 - it was monsoon season, but the weather was generally fine, the only issue was the sea is a no go zone. We had travelled around a little ahead of arriving at Vivanta for 9 nights. Everything about this hotel is great, including all of the staff. We were upgraded on arrival which was... More

Welcoming arrival with speedy checkin and excellent receptionists, room cleanliness could not be faulted, every aspect of our needs were met. Food, always a worry in hotels but this hotel did not disappoint, infact we planned to eat out most nights but the hotel restaurants were great and so reasonably priced we decided to eat in....the chefs were so accommodating...

Pretty large hotel with a nice bar, pool, and reasonably good meals at the cafe/restaurant. Great location on the beach, where you can stroll down for alternate meal options. We organised a 100-person conference at the hotel and the staff were excellent in catering to our needs.

Staff very friendly, and accommodating. Lovely, clean hotel. Fantastic meals. Very customer oriented. Highly recommend it. Unspoilt beach location. My son had his birthday on holiday. They arranged a cake and a magic show. They made him feel really special.

We wanted an opportunity to re-charge our batteries and we knew from the moment we arrived that we had made the right choice. The hotel is wonderful. Everything was perfect from the warm welcome to food and the fabulous pool side. This hotel caters for everyone. We stayed in a deluxe sea view room - it was lovely and kept... More
