Vivanta By Taj Whitefield
Ranked #35 of 665 Hotels in Bengaluru
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 4, 2014

From the moment I arrived nothing was too much trouble. Hotel staff are exceptionally accommodating from reception to the waiters to the housekeeping. I kept being asked if they could improve anything at all. In my opinion they couldn't improve, they were excellent. Food was good in the ground floor resturant with a good selection of all types of European and Indian cuisine. Breakfast was Continental or American or Indian. I used the bar a few times which was situated on the top floor, outdoors but undercover. I changed sterling to rupees at the hotel reception with little trouble. I didn't have time to use the pool but it looked good.

Room was comfortable with a good selection of essentials, plenty of bottled water and a comfortable bed. If I return to the ITPL I would stay here without hesitation.

I spent 3 nights in Vivanta Hotel in ITPL Bangalore during a business trip.
Someone was waiting for me at the airport with a clear sign for the Hotel and my name which help me located it among a forest of similar hotel signs.
The car was a decent small sedan in good shape with the colours of the hotel.
The trip used to last a fair one hour but thanks to a new flyover which has been completed it lasted approximately 45 Mn with the sparse traffic at 1AM.
I reach the hotel in the middle of the night but the security check and the check in was a slick affair.
I got a room on the back of the hotel overlooking the swimming pool (#344) which was very quiet by opposition to the rooms which are closer to the main road and tend to be noisier.
WIFI Internet was included in my corporate package 24/7 and was quite seamless to setup. Moreover 2 devices were permitted which was perfect for my iphone and new ipad air equipped with good.
The room is simply but nicely and modernly decorated with a shower facing the swimming pool but no bath
The breakfast is served in well lighted high ceiling space facing the swimming pool.
The service was prompt and polite.
The choice was a bit better for Indian food than for European food but adequate in both cases.
The expresso was decent, free and served promptly as meny times as you want.
The hotel has also a spa which is a bit pricey but nice as in most of TAJ hotel.
The check out was efficient and I could rebooked the car to the airport easily 2 times as the flight back to Hong Kong was delayed twice.

Overall a fine and well run business hotel at walking distance from the company offices located in ITPL.

Room Tip: Take one as far as you can from the main road and your nights will be peaceful

I have decided that it's about time for my first review for two good reasons:

To give back to the tripadvisor community and to the kindness of all (and I mean all) people at Vivanta:

I am very sure you might be able to find a more "fancy" hotel in Bangalore, and if your business isn't about staying in Whitefield, well it's certainly not the best choice.

But for me it is - because I have yet to make a better experience than the one I am allowed to have right here in this hotel (I am about to leave the hotel later today...):

Everything needed to have a great start into the day,is given at Vivanta:
A nice, quiet room with a cozy bed, a fantastic (!!!) breakfast with a selection that won't start becoming boring even after a 2 weeks' stay, a nice outside pool, a gym with everything provided a gym should have, a nice sauna and spa experience if you are up for that - it's all right there.

But, and that is what makes the difference, the very best of this hotel is about their people:
Maybe I didn't spend enough effort yet to search for it, but I simply haven't found a single soul among the people working for Vivanta who would not be EXCEPTIONAL nice, friendly and considerate.

My recommendation: go and give it a try - and then tell me I am not right.

The staff here are amazing, nothing is too much. They are all friendly and helpful.
Everything was very clean and well kept.
The breakfast is outstanding, with a variety of fresh food. I loved the pool, gym and sauna.
The restaurant and bar are nice, and there is a new shopping mall just across the road which has a few shops and restaurants too.
Great spot in a great city!

As a lady travelling alone I was a little apprehensive about travelling to India on business. However there was no need the staff at this hotel are brilliant and nothing was too much trouble . The latitude restaurant was excellent for dining alone and the staff were very attentive. The rooms are lovely I had 336 which overlooked the pool and it was spotlessly clean with thoughtful touches such as flowers and nail clippers. I hope to,return to this hotel next time I am in Bangalore. Thank you all for a wonderful stay.

Stayed in the Taj from the 31st March until the 11th April. All the staff were really friendly and nothing was a bother. Breakfast was really good and great choice. The food at dinner was also really nice, and also there was a good choice, the waiters were friendly and couldn't do enough for you. The bedrooms were a bit small but bed was really comfortable. The pool area was lovely but there was not enough beds if it was busy. I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Bangalore and hopefully I will be back one day soon.
