I ended up staying here by accident; the hotel I had been booked into originally was absolutely dreadful and this was the only other hotel I could think of in the area. To say I landed on my feet was an understatement! The staff couldn't have been kinder or more helpful to the exhausted, travelling-since-4am (and, by now, rather distressed)... More

A luxurious hotel surrounded by coconut groves and lush green vegetation perched on a hilltop. The hotel grounds continue across the road from the main hotel leading upto a small backwater area and the seafront surrounded by beautiful well maintained gardens. All the staff are friendly, courteous and can't do enough for you. Service is impeccable. Rooms are well furnished... More

We stayed from 23rd jan to 27th jan for four nights and our stay was memorable, beyond our expectations. The view was fabulous, service and the food was exemplary. Would certainly come again shortly😊. It was very peaceful place where you can relax and truly rejuvenate. Their service was excellent. Everybody tries to make you comfortable. Well done Taj😊

We -a couple and two friends- stayed 4 days at the Vivanta. It was a wonderful experience- perfect service from smiling staff, lovely food, great facilities, free yoga! Our top memory is watching the sunset on the beach one evening and spotting frolicking dolphins. This comes as close to a perfect holiday as I can imagine!

Much travelled the world over we have rarely been to a hotel with such excellent service and facilities. Located in a beautiful park with a nice private beach (but access to sea depends on tides) and lagoon to watch the sun set and frolicking dolphins this place is a real paradise. Add the friendly staff, the great service, the offer... More

The ideal send off to a wonderful 3-week holiday touring around Kerala, Mumbai and Nilgiri Hills. Food was excellent in the poolside Buffet dining area, and the Bait restaurant down by the beach. Very welcoming, attentive Staff in all parts of the Hotel, and most relaxing, comfortable rooms.

Although I preffered the Leela as my first choice due to unavailability of the resort booked into Taj and am glad that I got into this one. Firstly the best part about Taj is that each and every employee there may it be front desk or even the gardener will greet you always with a smile and this is consistent... More
