We spent 3 nights at the Taj Kovalam as a part of a larger group of families holidaying. The hotel area is relatively small, with 59 rooms and most of the property is the lagoon and surrounding foliage. The rooms are in 2-3 separate blocks on a small hillock overlooking the sea. While it is a very picturesque setting, there... More

A lovely 1st class hotel above the beach. After having our backsides shaken around as we travelled several hundred miles along the roads it was great to unwind for the last 3 days of our 16 day tour. The hotel is everything you would expect of the Taj chain. The staff were extremely friendly and would turn cartwheels to please... More

We stayed with family during Sept. 2014. Beautiful location, cleanly maintained, great food, and excellent staff. There is nothing for me to complain. The reason I did not give 5 star and gave a 4 star has something to do with the rest rooms. The flush was not working properly and one of the light also did not work. You... More

I went for a short Family trip to Kerala from Bangalore, so i only had a day to stay here with Taj. I have been to a couple of other properties from Taj, Leela or Shangri la. I have never seen such a hospitable environment before. Staff is just just too friendly, they make you feel at home. It is... More

From the moment we arrived we received a superb, welcoming and attentive service. Staff in all departments were excellent: reception, cleaning, pool, gym and restaurants. Our room, located in the lush garden area, was of a generous size with all the facilities one could want. It was kept clean and well-supplied. The pool area is superb, with great views over... More

We had a 2n3d trip to the Vivanta Kovalam. The location is wonderful and this huge property adjoining the sea is maintained painstakingly clean and perfect. The rooms are fantastic and the blissful greenery rejuvenates you completely. Add to this a lovely swimming pool, a spa and a jaccuzzi and you can imagine how much you could be pampered. To... More

This has been one of the best stay i have had. This location and the place is very very beautiful and also well maintained. The hotel staff is very generous and kind. The best part what i like is the Pool, Lagoon and Taj's private beach. Would recommend everyone to stay atleast for once.

This has been the most blissful and amazing stay we have had. The property is beautiful and is manned by a delightful team of employees who will go out of their way to make your stay memorable. We landed at Trivandrum airport and took a prepaid taxi from the airport ( Rs 475 one way for A/c cab). The resort... More
