“VIVANTA BY TAJ. COME FEEL THE VIBE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

Visited Feb 9 - Feb 13 2012. Absolutely perfect service by staff right from check in to check out. Nothing short of a fantastic experience. Staff were outstanding in every respect. Always smiling and will greet you at all times. I have read comments about expensive. Not quite true. Rooms were spacious and well appointed. Food and drink and service was truly superb. Go there, spend the money and pamper yourself. Went out for walks in the night . The spread at breakfast was phenomenal. No other hotel in the world can probably beat that! Cant wait to go back as we have some special memories on our very special trip. Well done Taj Vivanta Management and Staff!. Coming Soon again ...

Goa ! Well what can i say, it's been a ritual with my husband and me to take a holiday almost every year to Goa. We would spend lazy days under the sun drinking, eating and generally chilling. But since the birth of our son, our Goa trips had stopped. However this year we decided to renew the ritual. And chose Taj Holiday Village. Am I glad for the choice. Our son was petrified of the sea and made all demands on our time so we had to spend most of our time on the property. Thankfully this property has loads to do. A mini golf course, a spa (nearby) variety of restaurants, water sports. Plus the staff is really really child -friendly. They understand the anxiety of young parents and do all they can to make the stay enjoyable for parents and child. Our son loved the buggy rides and the play area was his destination at all times. In fact on our last night he got a special tour of the entire property on the buggy.
While the property has all that a great Taj property must have I was slightly disappointed with the food. I certainly think that's one area they could work on.

beautiful facility, with everything you need to feel spoiled, relax and rejuvenate. rooms were gorgeous, grounds were even better, and the service was A+....food was terrifice, view from the restaurant bar couldn't be beat, the Goa beaches really are beautiful...great swim up bar at the pool, super wine, ice made with purified water...what a treat to have Gin and Tonics with ice on the beach in India! loved it. would go back often if we lived closer...they need to open a facility nearer the USA.

Room Tip: depends on how much money you want to spend, but not a bad room in the facility

I have been a regular at this property but visited after 6 years this time with my wife and 7 month baby! I was very concerned since this was our first holiday with our baby and I wanted it be very comfortable and fun for the baby.
I had booked a nice villa for our stay which had a little living room attached to a bedroom, we setup the baby cot in the living area and also the mattress for the nanny. also, all the other baby stuff was in this area. The housekeeping head Mr. Tulsidas was very helpful in setting us up for the next few days...he gave us a bottle sterilizer, the baby bathing tub and of course the cot. So we were all set!
We did not venture out much of the property for the next 4 days, all our days were the same..we would start off with breakfast, a massage, then finally hit the pool and we would pretty much just chill around the pool until sunset - which was one of the best sunsets i saw in goa. The baby also had a great time in the pool!
Praveen and Prince would make us the best cocktails all day long!
The room was very comfortable, the caravella coffee shop was good too, the only problem i had with the whole stay was that the breakfast was more or less the same on all days! a little hange is always appreciated!
all in all a great stay!

Stayed here on two week trip to India. Had read other reviews before going, so had idea what hotel would be like. It was old, in serious need of updating and clean up. In our room, stains on floor, black mold on air conditioning vent in room and sofa had stains. Bathroom also needs updating. The grounds are lovely, pool great and property located on beach. Breakfast room over looks beach, food ok. But wait staff could not get bill correct. We ate with another couple. Each gave our room number and all of bill ended up on our room charge. Took front desk about 45 minutes to get it corrected. As lovely as location, I can not recommend this hotel.

I have been travelling here since much time. Had a great time lovely resort. awesomely located great place must go and its very beautiful.Vivanta is a contemporary-luxury hotel brand.

The building overlooks the Arabian Sea. He was inspired to open the grand luxury hotel after an incident involving racial discrimination at the Watson's Hotel in Mumbai, where he was refused entry as the hotel did not permit Indians, who were black.[8] Hotels which accepted only European guests were then very common across British India. Jamsetji Tata traveled to London, Paris, Berlin and Düsseldorf to get the best materials and pieces of art, furniture and interior artifacts for his hotel. This hotel soon gained the supposed status of the "most iconic"[clarification needed] hotel in India due to its prime location, traditional architecture and massive size.[8]

Went for the parents' anniversary for 2 nights. Highly recommend staying in the villas near the swimming pool, the food at the coffee shop is great and the breakfast spread is good. It is a drive away from the north goa beaches but not far. Overall, a great stay when traveling with family.
