Vivanta by Taj Aurangabad
Ranked #1 of 60 Hotels in Aurangabad
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 28, 2013

The Taj Residency is probably the best hotel choice in Aurangabad but it was an adjustment after staying in two five star properties. The hotel is situated on a beautiful property, the lobby and pool areas are very nice. The service was consistently wonderful – in fact Aurangabad is a centre for the Taj group’s staff training. The food quality was good - the night we had the grill dinner outside it came very close to very good. The rooms are dated and Spartan but consistent with the category of hotel. That said, the room had everything we needed and we had an enjoyable, quiet rest while we were there. Overall, we would suggest the hotel to others while they are in Aurangabad.

The hotel is probably the best I found in Aurangabad.. I was there on a long term Project & had extended stay in the Hotel. Only problem is that during the Season it is the Top choice of all the foreigners & sometimes the hotel was sold out & I had to look for a different hotel... The Food is just amazing at the Hotel, the best part being the service & super courteous staff.. Even when my Check-in sometimes had to be done at 1 Am I always found the staff with a smile.. They were more than willing to go that extra mile to serve us...My only regret was that I couldnt really explore the Spa & Gym at the hotel as I was running short of time... Typical Taj's caring attitude was visible everywhere.. Once I completed my 20th stay at the Hotel, The hotel upgraded my room into a suit complimentary along with a personalized Card and a small gift for me... That was simply fabulous :):)

Room Tip: East Facing gives u an amazing view of the Garden while the West facing give u a view of the Pool...

Another lovely Taj property hall-marked by the great service only this chain seems to deliver to my taste. Very comfortable rooms, set in peaceful gardens just outside central Aurangabad, making it quiet apart from the calls to prayer from the mosque next door. Lovely food, and a very charming young chef who went out of his way to cater to my tastes, especially when I was unwell. Lovely!

One of the best in business. Very nice location. Quiet atmosphere.
Non Veg food was delicious at the restaurant. Rooms are spacious. Nice to relax. I am from Aurangabad itself. However stayed at the hotel during a Psychiatry conference with friends from outside.

Room Tip: I can comment on first floor rooms and they are nice.

This is simply the best property in Aurangabad! Made out to be like a palace, not very high and spread sideways, it was an amazing drive, lawns, pool. The staff, as is our experience in most Taj group hotels (whether Gateway, Vivanta or Taj), are very very courteous and helpful. You ask for something and its like done with a smile! Our room overlooking the central lawn had a swing in the balcony attached. It overlooked the restaurant which has a grill buffet in the evening with live maharastrian song/ dance performance for the guests dining (though you can watch from the room as well). The walkways around the lawn, pool are nice - good for nice walks or even jogging. We had a very good time.

Room Tip: Not sure of the categories of rooms, but choose a lawn or a pool view room (I would go with the lawn...

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights recently and enjoyed our stay. Although the property is pretty old by now but has all the facilities and comforts. Services and staff have the imprint of Taj Group. Restaurant serves a good spread and quality is very good. Experience overall is very satisfactory.
