We were keen to stay at 5 star hotels, so for Chennai, we booked at Taj Vivanta's Fisherman's Cove. It was highly priced for its ambience, which is so basic and common to most resorts. This place definitely needs a facelift and maintenance of its furnitures, fixtures etc. room was standard mid size room but the Toilets were old and did not have our basic necessity of a toilet backwash spray in our rooms. In this modern day and age, there were ' plastic ' mugs ' in the bathrooms! though very clean and perhaps new, hah possibly to cater to the 'fishermen/ people who prefer the backward bucket and mug water wash! The spa was so basic - steam room could hold only 3 people and that too very tightly next to each other. Unless there is a major change, avoid this place Service very mediocre, totally not a 5 star effect ! Would love to have a concession returned!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Vivanta by Taj - Fisherman's Cove, Chennai, built on the ramparts of an old Dutch fort, is now riding on a fresh new wave. Yet it remains the charming beach resort that's almost one with the Bay of Bengal. Where fun lovers return for good times. There's a nice new buzz however. In the renewed cottages and villas, the nouvelle restaurants, the high energy bar, and the spa where you'll go Ah! ... more less
