I must begin by thanking Atoll Paradise in Maldives who were tremendous help in selecting this resort and also provide some good deal on the package.
Undoubtedly, staying at the Vivanta by Taj in Maldives had been by far the best experience. The one aspect where Taj supersedes any other hotels & Resorts chain is in its Hospitality. And it is evident through the interactions with every single member of staff who lives the concept of "||Atithi Devo Bhava||" every single moment. As an Indian I admire and appreciate this gesture.
Michelle, Irina and Aditi at the Front Desk, welcomed us with a beaming smile and pleasant words. I believe this was crucial in making us feel at home and in good hands during our stay. They were very helpful throughout our stay and were available via the "ASK" key from our Villa.
Entire house keeping staff went beyond their duties and ensured my wife and I get a nice little surprise every time we entered our Villas. I also loved the politeness and courteous behaviour. Haven't seen such mannerisms in a house keeping staff anywhere in the world.
We ate most of our meals in Latitude where we were always welcomed by a warm greetings and beaming smile from Jade and Caroline. A special thanks to Rana, who were always helpful in suggesting / selecting food items from the menu. Our Romantic beach dinner by the beach side will always remain closest to our heart experience. Irshan ensured we are served well and yet ensured we enjoy the privacy of the romantic dinner.
As non swimmers, both my wife and I were sceptical about using some services such as snorkelling. However, the dive centre staff were helpful in ensuring we feel safe and secure by providing us with a lot of information on the details of usage of equipments and safety precautions. House Reef guided tour instructor was helpful in giving us confidence to Snorkel even in the waters as deep as 20 feet.
We found the staff at the Jiva Spa very professional who ensured we do not feel awkward and enjoy the
A special thanks to Praveen Gaonkar, the security manager at the resort. Praveen ensured that we feel safe on that small island. But also helped us explore key spots on the island to take memorable pictures. I was impressed by his photography skills and knowledge. I don't recollect interacting with any security manager of any hotel chain before in my life. Praveen is a keen observer and pays attention to details, which is very appropriate to his role as a Security Manager. He interacted with me in my mother tongue - Marathi to ensure I feel at home. What was admirable was that after finding out my wife is Bengali, he ensured someone speaking Bengali interacted with her to make her feel at home too. Incredible gesture.
Overall, Vivanta experience exceeded our expectations. A must visit.
