We spent 8 days at Vivanta Kovalam. What a superbly restful place in a lush tropical setting. Comfortable rooms with full amenities. Plenty of choice of excellent food at reasonable prices. But what really makes this hotel/resort is it's compliment at all levels of warm enchanting staff - always smiling and happy to assist in any way, that only Keralans... More

We stayed in Vivanta Kovalam in April'14 for 2 nights and must say it met all our expectations except few things. The Property is beautiful and they have amazing friendly staff. We were offered welcome drinks with smooth check-in, looking at our family size the room was upgraded which was nice. The property is around half a km away from... More

Hotel is what we come to expect from this corporation. Property is well situated at the beach, quiet yet close enough to main city by taxi. Well placed rooms sit facing the ocean, yet encapsulated in lush overgrowth. Services are top tier; food is excellent, spa services are luxurious, staff is warm, smiling and ready to serve. My only regret... More

Having spent one week at Bandhavgarh National Park in Madhya Pradesh followed by a week doing the golden triangle of Agra, Jaipur and Delhi, the Vivanta by Taj in Kovalam was my first port of call on a nine day trip through Kerala. I found the whole setup very comfortable and relaxing, with the accommodation just a short walk from... More

I am a Taj loyalist so whenever I travel, I prefer a Taj as you will get assured good service, comfy sleep, good food and an overall memorable time. Stayed at Vivanta for 2 nights in a Ocean View Superior Room. Overall, I had a very good stay, thanks to the team which goes an extra mile to provide a... More

We visited this hotel in January during a stay in four different places in kerela. This is a perfect stay for anyone who wants luxury with the added extras of beautiful gardens, beach, a lake with free boat ride rivaling mini backwaters. Staff went out of the their way to help in any way possible, & were very approachable and... More

We stayed at Taj Kovalam for a week in April 2014 and I must say that its one of the best hotels I've stayed at. The pool area is lovely and rooms very specious and modern. Aircon worked well. Offseason prices seem to be rasonable and our offer was extremely good, much less than the Leela in Kovalam. We had... More

Fantastic welcome - made us very happy and comfortable. The staff are amazing, nothing is too much trouble and always on hand to help with anything. Even the buggies were perfect to get up and down to the beach. We had a major birthday while here and they treated us like royalty with ribbons, candles, balloons and champagne and even... More

This was my 2nd visit to the hotel, the first being back in 2009. It was truly a divine week after a fortnight of non stop travelling! The rooms are practical, comfortable & of good design! The bed was better than mine at home!! I just adored my room & the TV with plenty of great channels! I was only... More

This was our first stay at this vivanta by taj resort. The views and landscaping are fantastic. The staff although not always efficient were overall very friendly. We travelled with our baby daughter and were surprised that the hotel on our arrival only had one very old high-chair which was not always available and that the mattress of the baby... More
