Very good hotel. They were courteous and the best part was the express check in, which was done within no time and that too in my room...
The food was very nice...
great value for money ...
The only thing which was not up to the mark was the in room iron provided by them...

Thank you, we know our guests are tired after a long flight, We aim to provide a 100% in room check in to all our guests, a welcome relief from the hectic working environment and long flight.

The irons placed in the room were bought as per International Health and Safety Standards, and already we are upgrading them.

Thank you again for your positive review!

I stayed in this hotel for 3 days during my business trip in Bangalore. I enjoyed the comfort of my superior charm room along with the view of the pool. All staff members were really nice and caring. This was a good experience that I'll probably renew on my next trip.

Let me first of all say that I would have given a 5 star rating if it had not been for the very uncomfortable bathroom arrangements.Great room, good breakfast buffet, close to many other eating places in Whitefield but who designed those bathrooms?

I mean it is fine if you are in the room as a single traveller- it doesn't matter then that the bathroom doors are translucent glass, there is no place to hang anything, including the towel, in the shower so you have to step out naked. But when you are sharing the room, it makes for awkward moments with absolutely no privacy. We were staying there with our adult daughter (it was a triple sharing room) and we had to time everything to avoid embarrassment. Will never stay at that Taj again! In fact, with our extensive travels around the world, this is only the second hotel with such awkward arrangements.

Dear Reviewer,

Our brief to the designer was to develop a new generation business hotel, one that combines the needs of the business traveller and the little luxuries that makes a home away from home a vibrant and exciting place to be.

We have a few living concepts at the Vivanta by Taj Whitefield, inside the ITPL Tech Park with an overarching objective that breaks the mould of the traditional hotel in several exciting ways. Glass has been used to emphasise spatial crafting to reflect the thoughts projected by Debord’s critique in the landscraper’s ability to firstly displace and then recreate the characteristics of the original site. ( The core value behind the hotel landscraper design )

We do have bedrooms with a different layouts, and I will be happy to ensure that the right design layout is presented to you, if we have the opportunity to serve you on your next stay. Please feel free to write to me at mukut.chakravarti@tajhotels.com.

Warm Regards
Mukut Chakravarti

stayed for a day there, You get in from what looks like a crowded place, but once you are in you get a feeling being away from the maddening crowd. The pool is good. the food is good especially the breakfast spread. Rooms are fine , nice bed, TV with many channels :). temp was maintained and the view was not of the crowd. staff is very courteous. It was what i hoped for a good break.

Dear Reviewer,

Thank you! the hotel is the 'Venue' for us and we like that you think its cosy, and we think Vibrant and Exciting! Edge of the plate and tasteful, Food and Beverage as well as the spa and the wellness areas, as well as the landscaped gardens were indeed designed for this to be a business hotel and yet a weekend getaway

Thank you again for the review!

i stayed at the Vivanta for 2 weeks and i found it be really comfortable, the staff are great, friendly and helpful, nothing was too much for them. Very eager to please, my room was comfortable and large enough. All of the amenities were excellent, great Gym, bar and restaurant. The chef will even take you on a tour of the restaurant as well, show you how the tandoor ovens work, explain the spices they use and so on.
The only drawback i can think of is the distance to the airport, given the traffic in bangalore, be prepared for it. Socialising after work, there isn't too much close by. Certainly will be staying there again when i return

Dear Reviewer,

Thank you for your wonderful review, We truly love creating Vivanta moments for our guests, in particular for our extended stay guests, the challenge of showcasing and growing our versatile food and beverage and our intuitive hospitality.

True that the Central Business District the Eastern and the Western Corporate business district which house most hotels and IT parks range between 30-50 kms distance from the airport and it takes between 45 - 60 mins to reach most hotels.

Thank you again for staying with us for awhile! Our team looks forward to welcoming you back to Vivanta!

Warm Regards
Mukut Chakravarti
Director Of Sales.

I was staying at the Vivanta Whitefield for almost 3 months. It was overall a good experience, It is located in a business area, so mostly caters to business guests.

Rooms: Spacious and well equipped. If you are a woman, ask for the rooms with a larger vanity area - just makes life easier. It is also a good idea to have a room not too far from the lift, to avoid the long walk back. They only have an overhead shower and no hand shower, which might be a little annoying.

Amenities: They have a well-equipped gym that I used regularly. Neat, with the right amount of equipment. Very happy with it. We also used their cars for pickups and drops - the drivers were mostly street savvy and would navigate away from the traffic-prone areas - however, booking cars was hassle-prone.

Restaurants: They have an all day dining place called Latitude, where I had breakfast everyday. The breakfast hits all the right notes - they have a wide spread. Special mention to the milkshakes - very delicious and not overly sweet. Also tried their Indian cuisine restaurant Terracotta - food was delicious, but dessert (Masala chai creme brulee) was disappointing.

Service: Prompt and ready to help you with special requests. I really liked the hospitality.

Room Tip: Rooms midway between the end of the alley and the lift are the best.

Very unexpectedly our stay at the Taj Whitefield complete exceeded our expectations. It is a business hotel but we went for leisure. It is a little far from the city centre. But it is a haven of quiet comfort away from the hustle & bustle of the city. The drive to the city is inexpensive and if timed well will be no more than 15-20 minutes.

But the most exceptional aspect of the Taj Whitefield is the dedication to service at all levels: housekeeping, front desk, restaurant,... And somehow each person went out of their way to provide special, dedicated service. But a few people exceeded even the already exceptional level of service: Stanley accompanied us to the city and answered all our numerous questions on culture, the city, the people,... He took care of all our special wishes and went out of his way to make us feel comfortable. He assisted us right from the first minute of our arrival until our departure. Ragu must be the best driver in Bangalore. He is quietly in control of what he is doing and manages the chaotic traffic with complete calm. Sunil goes out of his way to give personalised service in the coffee shop. He fulfils every possible culinary whim and still finds the time to have a chat about the best way to use the public transport and what sights are most interesting in Bangalore. And from Rajesh, the chef at Terracotta, I learned that the Indian kitchen has more than 50 spices, how to pickle fruit and how to make a good chutney...

An exceptional hotel with even more exceptional people. When I visit Bangalore again I will certainly stay at the Taj Whitefield again.

Thank you!! it is feedback like yours that brightens our day, we truly look forward to creating Vivanta Moments, for you our guest the Unexpected.

At some level, we believe that the design plays a large part in creating this positive energy or vibe in the hotel, the design and the natural light in the hotel is capable of subjecting our guesta and staff and the community to a different experience - By virtue of its design - of the resulting mobile space of work and play, and by virtue of freely chosen variations in the rules of the game inbuilt in the design.

The hotel truly is a fabulous weekend getaway idea, with open landscaped gardens restaurants, Spa, a gorgeous pool, not to forget the Mall and Entertainment options available nearby.

Thank again you for your excellent review of our hotel and staff. Stanley already knows!
