Staying at the right property is so important for the perfect holiday experience, especially when you are traveling as a family with young children.
My family and I try and stay with the Taj wherever we travel, if there is one in town. Having stayed at several Taj properties and experienced remarkably consistent high standards of hospitality, the 'Taj experience' has become the benchmark for my family to rate any other hotel.
The Vivanta at Trivandrum comes up aces in the 'Taj Experience' department. Immaculate and spotlessly maintained, with efficient, helpful and cheerful staff, great rooms, wonderful food, a lovely pool and center-of-town location, it is difficult to beat the Vivanta in terms of hospitality at Trivandrum.
Just about everyone from the doorman and security to room service will rise to the occasion graciously, to make sure your every wish is catered to. The people who come to clean your room stop to make pleasant conversation with you in the corridor. When your the children are playing by pool, there is always someone from the staff to watch over them. You don't need to call different numbers for room service and housekeeping and travel helpdesk - just dial '0' for your 'virtual butler' - they will organise everything from there if you wish. And what is truly remarkable - and priceless - is the genuine 'human'-ness that all the staff display - right from spontaneously playing with the kids, to offering helpful advice, to just making conversation or stopping to let you pass, or opening a door for you and the family, or helping to seat a child at the restaurant table - one can just go on and on about the Taj.
An added benefit is that nearly everyone in town knows the 'Taj Hotel' as it is called. Located just couple of kilometres away from the city raily station and 'MG Road', it is virtually impossible to get lost in the city, if you're staying at the Vivanta. Just ask any resident and they'll helpfully point the way to get back to the hotel.
Suffice to say, that the Taj anywhere is absolutely THE BEST place to stay that I've experienced for a family on vacation. If you can afford it, don't settle for anything less.
