5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

location was great. Our room was overlooking the lagoon & sea. Staff was very helpful and receptive to requests. I would recommend a stay of @ 3 nights to enjoy to the fullest. We were upgraded to Suit with swimming pool and that added to our experience.

Location is fantastic, rooms are gorgeous, cleanliness is superb, staff is outstanding. Environment of a lush green and very quiet, excellent spa, Highly recommendable for relaxing. Perhaps a little bit of more international cuisine would be appropriate.

Kovalam is very beautiful place with its beaches, landmarks, food and a lighthouse. But this resort exceeds all expectations. The only thing I regret is to stay here for only for 1 night. Wished I have stayed more more nights. We were on honeymoon and Vivanta made our honeymoon a memorable one. Fantastic rooms, service, hotel ground with private beach... More

We have traveled around the world and would rate our stay with Taj Kovalam right up there. The hospitality was the best we ever received; the staff took special care of us for everything. It is worth visiting with family, friends or just alone but don't miss it.

The extensive property caters to the whims of children, adults and seniors. The staff and service are exceptional especially if you are celebrating an occasion. Rooms are clean, calming and spacious.

I've been to this hotel several times. It's a resort hotel that I'm lucky enough to visit on business. It has a charming feel and lovely staff. Price is very good value and much better than the alternative hotel at the other side of Kovalam which I've also stayed at several times. The rooms are set in the gardens which... More
