Picturesque, lush green property - recommended for a very relaxing family holiday. The rains added to the charm of the place. We spent 3 days/2 nights in May 2015 and enjoyed the warm and courteous hospitality of the staff , and in particular Mr. Ghan Shyam. Rooms (deluxe suites) were spacious and well-maintained. Beautiful view of the sea/ lagoon from... More

The gorgeously perched property , overlooks the blue sea and is separated by a Fresh Water Lagoon!!!! And what of course it's only open to the Residents of the hotel ....so privacy guaranteed. The rooms have been designed in the Thai/Balinese style which gives each cottage the feeling of space , lightness , a view that dreams are made off... More

Got to the Taj after a long car journey from Allepey and to my surprise it looked amazing. There were 9 of us in total so we had booked 3 rooms. It was neat and comfortable. We had a problem with the aircon in one room and we were moved swiftly, some people in the group had an issue with... More

The family decided it was time to expose the boys to Kerala. The elder one had a really stressful freshman year. Apart from the awful weather in Boston, he had grades to reckon plus the pressure of competitive coding. So Kerala it had to be, by "popular concensus." I planned the trip to start at Trivandrum, go further south to... More

It was an amazing experience. The buffet breakfast was amazing and so was the in-room dining. The restraunt by the name "Curries" was good too. The food is decently priced for a 5 star and the portion also in good quantity. The staff was very helpful and caring. Ms. Anna at the child activity room was very good in taking... More

If planning for honeymoon travel and pockets allow, then can plan for a stay for a day or two to have good ambience. Location is one of the plus point and private beach is worth visiting and paying. Can enjoy near by market place and beach in the evening.

It was a memorable stay for us st the Vivanta, Kovalam right from day one. The property is beautiful and very well maintained. Staff were extremely courteous and helpful. The food was delicious, with prompt and efficient room service too. The complimentary boatride in the backwaters was a tranquil experience with amazing views of the sunset and the Arabian sea....

Stayed for a week, with a number of friends, which included a wedding reception. Vivanta has created a leafy idyll which, although without the convenient beach, really conveys an oasis like feel. The facilities were excellent with a quality spa and superb Wifi wherever i was in the hotel. With 15 acres of land there is a nice choice of... More

The best suite room in the world is in Taj Green Cove kovalam - PRESIDENTIAL NIRVANA SUITE WITH PRIVATE POOL. Two days were mind blowing. A to Z was too good. Make sure you go there when its not that hot in kerala. Hospitality at its best.
