I stayed at the Vivanta by Taj in Bangalore for 5 days during a trip to India to help with some training for Indian Chemistry teachers. The hotel was in an unprepossessing area of the city surrounded by half constructed buildings but once through the gates you felt as if you were in an oasis of calm. The staff were wonderful: nothing was too much trouble and any problems were dealt with quickly quietly and efficiently. We were met at the airport by hotel cars whose drivers swiftly and safely transferred us to the hotel. On a public holiday, the only day when we had some 'down time'. the hotel provided us with a car and driver who took us to see some of the city sights. He was exceptionally helpful, efficiently arranging tickets for us at the botanic gardens and science museum.
The hotel had several restaurants; the 24 hour buffet restaurant served every conceivable breakfast dish for European and Indian tastes, and the in house indian restaurant was excellent with helpful and informative staff who guided us through the menu.
Rooms were bright and modern in style, excellently and spaciously laid out and serviced daily - but beware the privacy button which I knocked accidently and found my room unserviced when I returned at the end of the working day. However, a call to reception and my room was made immaculate again while I had dinner.Plenty of bottled water was provided in the room each day
The business centre was well equipped although the printer was out of action - staff made sure our needs were met by using another printer at reception.
The hotel has a pool, gym and spa although I did not use these. I did spend some time lazing by the pool one day - there are plenty of comfortable sun oungers and umbrellas to shade you from the sun
