breathtaking view..ok facilities (compared to Taj Vivanta in other cities)..friendly staff..ok food
to elaborate a bit: breathtaking view of dallake and the srinagar valley. superb sunrise-sunset-evening valley-lights-view from balcony of the cottages.
the room was good but not taj standard. same goes for the professionalism in service at room or reception counter. we had to wait 1hr to check-in our room even with prior booking.
since the hotel is on hill-top, one would expect a complimentary pick-n-drop to the dal lake road - and not to pay for two way taxi everytime you desire to go the market or eat outside.
the staff, mainly the younger and local ones, were very friendly and always willing to help.. this made-up for the lack of trained staff. this is both for room service and for resturants.
food in the breakfast buffet was bit repeititve but ok in taste.
since there is not many options in Srinagar for a 3-4star stay on a hill-top, Vivanta is ok. the best was the view from the top and the well maintained property-gardens-walkpaths.
overall, ok stay turned to good time spent by the breathtaking view.

Room Tip: choose one cottage with balcony away from the swimming pool

I stayed with my wife at Vivanta By Taj Srinagar mid of July for 3 nights and 4 days. The hotel is located above a small hill overlooking the Dal Lake. The location gives a feeling of being with nature. Extremely friendly and warm staffs, and every rooms offer balcony view with modern design, unlike the Taj group heritage huge building design.

The place is quite and comfortable. Specially just before the dawn, overlooking Dal lake and the assortment of birds chirping. Evening Time, sunset over the mountains is a treat to watch.

Pros:
Excellent location & View
Great Ambiance and warm staffs
Lovely Swimming pool overlooking the valley
Modern Room design

Cons:
No Spa
Price
Frequent Security procedures

Room Tip: Always insits for 1st floor rooms in the cottage.

Excellent location, very spacious rooms with some great views of the Dal lake and Srinagar. Food was also quite nice. The front desk although very helpful still need to learn more about the place themselves as they are all new. However they did their best to get us information we needed.
The drawback was the service at the coffee shop(Lattitude) which by far was the worst service we had at any of the Taj/Vivanta hotels. Suprisingly the service at the Chinese restuarant and the tea lounge was a welcome suprise.
Wasnt particularly impressed with their drivers for cars that we hired through their travel desk. They didnt seem to be upto the mark for a hotel of this standard to be.
Overall, pleasant stay but they still need to go a long way to acheive the Taj standards.

Room Tip: get one of the rooms on the first floor.

We went in June 3rd Week 2011 to book the room. But nt satisfied with the food hence droped the ide. Location you just cant imagine. The PAri Mahal, Dal Lake, char Chinar hust out of this world. We ordered the Soup. Not upto the mark. We recommend it for the Location. Not for food. The best Food in Srinagar is at Hatrick , Rag Bagh.
