The warmest staff we have ever experienced and that include the pool guys and the many gardeners! Restaurants, pool, room, gardens were all exceptional. Just one niggle.....for a 5 star hotel you should not have to pay for wifi.

I just returned from a six day trip to Kovalam and the highlight of my stay was the beautiful accommodation at the Taj. From the moment I arrived til the time I left, I was treated like a queen. I loved the cottage-style rooms with the wooden floors and the view from the balcony was breath-taking. Every modern amenity was... More

We normally visit Northern part of India every year and this year we decided to change and explore the south of India Kerala. This was the first time we visited Kerala and arrived at TrivanWdrum airport. We chose Vivanta Taj as our location from friends who had been to the area. The hotel is excellent the whole grounds are lush... More

Just returned from this lovely hotel, the warmth of the staff made up for any minor niggles. Food was really good in Jasmine Bay, we didn't eat in Curries or Bait but only heard good reviews. We like to be out and about exploring other 'eateries' and spreading our money amongst the locals. We have stayed in Kovalm before, at... More

Stayed for 6 nights in February. beautifully landscaped grounds, stunning infinity pool, lovely helpful staff. We ate at Curries and we completely happy with the food apart from the last night when an overly long delay caused us to go without dinner. Totally recommend as somewhere to completely unwind.

Very nice hotel. Built over 6 acres . it has well appointed 50-60 rooms which makes it a grand treat and away from the crowd. The hotel is made on a hill with great view of the sea. Food is great and staff is very good

After a long flight from the UK we arrived very tired at the hotel earlier than check in. To our delight we were shown around the hotel straight away and to our beautiful room number 302 overlooking the pool and sea which was breathtaking. We spent 8 nights here, doing yoga every morning with an excellent teacher, all complimentary, amongst... More

Stayed at the hotel for three days and enjoyed the pool and the restaurant by the beach. The spa is really good and staff is very helpful. Avoid going during the monsoons. Three or four days to just relax is ideal

It really is a haven for the luxury traveller who pays attention to the minutest of details. The architecture of the place is commendable and awakens the old world, may be stone age charm. No complaints at all-hygiene, food, service, hospitality - you take it all with 5 stars. To me, there couldn't be a finer place to stay while... More

I went to Taj Kovalam for my honeymoon. The place was very serene, peaceful and the food was extremely good. The staff is extremely courteous and ever ready to help you around. They also have a beach front and a restaurant there which serves amazing wines. They have these carts to ferry you around from the lobby to your room... More
