“Ok at the best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

Stayed at the viavnta from the 7 th Nov to the 10th Nov 2013. The rooms were OK but requires to be upgraded. It lacked the finesse of a five star hotel. The gym when i used early in the mornings was dirty and had not been cleaned.They have a 24 hours use policy which is good but don't have staff for the 24 hours.The ASK service of theirs which was much touted ,just ASK and anything will be done failed when i called and nobody even picked up the call.
The positives, the breakfast was great, with a lot of authentic south Indian menu.The food is also quite tasty and the service is good..
Overall a good place to stay for a short time but of course being a five star you expect more!

Its a new property however the experience is average. if u r looking for "Taj" hospitality, im sorry, u wont get it. Specially their service in the restaurant requires a lot of improvement.
If u r one of those ppl who waits everywhere for services provided by ur hotel, is okay with the way the staff does their work in their own way- then u can go in for this hotel...I went there with family. Otherwise facilities r gud in the hotel. Its got a 4 Feet deep pool , room is nice etc..

Room Tip: Take a Pool facing one, preferably above 5th floor as there is another highrise building facing ur r...

Has the taj stamp to it. Nice poolside outdoor restaurant is a must for dinner. Shamota ( ? not sure of her name ) served us and was an employee who should be rewarded for her dedication to the hotel.
Nice large swimming pool, gym with well maintained equipment and steam sauna etc are other plusses !
Room is spacious and well equipped.

Room Tip: High floor, pool facing

The spa at the Taj Vivanta is really good, when ever I visit Coimbatore, I make sure I get a body massage. The facility is very clean and the ambience is serene and welcoming. I recommend the facial, a deep tissue massage - try 90 minutes and a body wrap- exfoliating is better than the other one.

1. Location - One of the best locations in Coimbatore - Race Course Road - Very quiet and peaceful area.
2. Rooms - Spacious, with decent view and with all amenities
3. Food - Very sumptuous breakfast spread - the Kerala dishes especially are really good. The chef even made me hot Appams (even though it wasnt in the menu) as I have been having it or the last 3 meals. The Idlis are also a speciality here.
4. Service - Perfect & Professional - some of the most well mannered, polite and ever helpful staff I have ever seen in a hotel
5. Other facilities - Pool (Well Maintained): Spa (Professional well trained massuers):
6. Business centre - Have conducted several conferences here. Full support from the staff - every single one of our requests, however absurd they may be, were tended to.

Stayed here for 1 day - its a fair distance from the Coimbatore airport but its location is quite good especially the neighborhood if you are looking for a place for a good walk in the morning.

Rooms are of a good standard - good sleep quality. It claims to be a green project so they do laundry less often though this did not apply to me since my stay was short. Room was well appointed overall. They have a fitness area / pool and business center which I did not use at all.

They have two restaurants - one multicuisine which offers a good breakfast buffet and the other was a Chinese one - try their version of a really soft idly with some really hot and spicy chutney - the manager recommended it and it really lit a fire on my tongue. Chinese was ok - nothing dramatic apart from their Chocolate Springroll which I found quite interesting.

Staff was very courteous and helpful.

An excellent hotel with amazing hospitality. The hotel is an ideal family hotel with a cozy pool and nice gym. The staff is extremely polite and helpful. If going in a group, try to get rooms on the same floor as moving between floors is limited to only own floor floors and the common floors for security reasons
