Visiting this resort for the third time now. Never seizes to amaze. One of the best properties you would find in Kerala. Try 'the bait' beach restaurant, they offer some exceptional seafood with an amazing ambience. Just one room tip. Take the Presidential suite. Loved it. Period

It is a nice property with a private access to the beach and a private lake as well..the rooms are nice.Do shell out some extra money for sea view rooms ad they are totally worth it. !!! The property has 3 restaurants..Bait seafood restaurant,... More

Nothing can beat Taj when it comes to hospitality! From the time we stepped in till the time we left everything was perfect. The resort is simply beautiful..a perfect place to unwind. It was our anniversary celebration and it was made so special, not just "the day" but all 4 days of our stay. The staff left no stone unturned... More

Relaxing, pampering and just rejuvenating. Best is the sunset that one gets to see from the beautiful beach. Don't forget to have atleast one meal at the Restaurant by the beach. The whole experience is outstanding. Ask for a room which is not at a lower level, as they have dampness or atleast they smell like that.

It is a great hotel, but the service still lacks quality. We were backpacking around Kerela, and after a very long and tiring journey we had arrived Kovalam and decided to stay in Taj and unwind, However since we had not booked ourselves earlier and had just walked-in, the staff made it very loud and clear to us on several...

this hotel is more than perfect, excellent propery and very frindly staff. the plus point is the hotel is surrounded with nature beauty, the space that spreads over 10 acres and reflects the spirit of the sea. the hillside cottages with elephant-grass thatched rooftops are amaging, living spaces open into a private balcony overlooking the lush landscape, the backwaters, the...

I would give this Hotel a 10 on 10 based just upon its location. Its practically next to the sea.And yes it does have access to the beach. Though not really private but private enough. The property is divided into two parts. The main property houses all the rooms and all the other facilities. The other part which is just... More

I doubt I could find a better hotel/resort on the planet. Accommodation is superb, food choices and quality outstanding, and staff are amazing - they were great when I momentarily lost my phone by the pool. Oh and the pool! No words. Just go!

Perhaps the best hotel that I have visited so far 'at sea level'. Super service. Very nice location. Excellent cuisine. The hotel is located close to the (small) airport TRV (the aircrafts you can not hear). The Spa was brilliant!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Vivanta by Taj - Kovalam, is delightful in many ways. While to some it is one of the finest beach resorts in Kerala, to others it is an amazing backwater retreat. And there are those that love it for its hill resort layout. Now it's all that and more. There's a nice new buzz all over. In the renewed cottages and villas, the nouvelle restaurants, the high energy bar, and the spa where you'll go Ah! ... more   less
