Great service, friendly helpful staff, good location as a base for a few days. Couldn't fault the service in the restaurant..... very helpful with my allergies and went the extra mile to ensure I was looked after.

We loved every bit of our stay at the Taj Trivandrum. The facilities, the staff and especially the food were all superb! The wonderful staff of their restaurant 5th Element were especially welcoming, friendly and helpful and went out of their way to feed us well! The breakfast and dinner buffets were so memorable :)

Vivanta by Taj Trivandrum is located centrally in the Trivandrum, though trivandrum is not very big city, the central location is advantageous if you want to see the city. Rooms are nice and the restaurant serves a nice buffet.
