Rooms nice, food very good both dinner and breakfast, staff very professional and friendly, if you want to stay at a nice property in Jodhpur, I highly recommend. I have stayed there 3 times in a row and my last stay was March 2012.

Room Tip: A non-smoking room - which I believe all are, always makes it a perfect stay.

The highlight of our Jodhpur trip was our stay at Vivanta by Taj, Hari Mahal Palace. We had booked 3 rooms and everyone who accompanied us on the trip loved the hotel! The service is exemplary and the staff is extremely courteous and helpful. A special mention to Ms. Shivani who was extremely friendly and helpful and also the staff at breakfast who thoughtfully packed a lunch box for my little 1.5 year old cousin while we were leaving for Jaisalmer.
I would definitely love to stay here again on my next trip to Jodhpur.

If you want to know and feel the definition of hospitality, please visit Vivanta by Taj, Hari mahal, Jodhpur. Jodhpur is not a popular holiday spot in June and I am afraid, Jodhpur can’t boast of many tourist attractions. We took a gamble and opted Jodhpur as our holiday purpose was to just relax and let our kids enjoy. Wow, what an attractive gamble it turned out to be. The hotel itself proved to be a major tourist spot and a place to beat the heat, thus letting you soak in leisure, big time. We were made to feel exceptionally valued at every minute of our stay there. Quality of food, quality of service and room quality was ultimate but what struck us most was hospitality with warmth. Kids activity room was an added attraction and made a perfect family leisure spot.
The Latitude (restaurant where buffet breakfast and buffet dinners were arranged) staff served us with great enthusiasm. I especially thank the restaurant staff for pampering and arranging meals for my little daughter who was in fact complimentary. Many hotels, even after charging, will not do it the way Latitude staff did it.
Every single person in hotel staff, starting from pick up and drop chauffeurs, security at the gate, front desk executives, restaurant ( Latitude) staff and housekeepers deserve due appreciation but I wish to thank from the bottom of my heart the following hotel staff members in particuler. Mr. Praveen (front desk), the lady who received us at check in and then led us to our room ( I am sorry mam, I forgot your name), the manager in Latitude (the tall guy- again sorry I forgot the name), Ms.Uma in Latitude and Mr. Anand at swimming pool. I wish you all the best in your life. We would definitely love to visit this hotel time and again in future.

I stayed in the hotel from 21st June 2013 to 24th June 2013

Dear Mr Roomi,

Sun City is meant to be sunny and the tourism revolves around this feature like the Dunes experience etc. We thank you so much for highlighting that heat is not a negetive factor here infact it adds to the experience. I am exceptionally delighted to read, ".. We were made to feel exceptionally valued at every minute of our stay there..". This is what we endeavor and makes me feel proud to be working with such colleagues who are rendering this value in their services. I am sure this review will be a boost in their enthusiasm to keep performing exceptionally well.

We will look forward for your continued patronage.

We went to Jodhpur for a short weekend trip and Taj was a default choice.
The hotel is good and the rooms are nice. We had all our meals at their restaurants and found the food good. I personally felt that this hotel needs to come out of the "Vivanta" branding of the Taj group , as Vivanta hotels are a huge dissapointment and have a horrid service.
The best part about our stay was that we got to see many bollywood celebs like Tabu , Sonali Bendre , Saif Ali Khan and Neelam who were staying here. All the guests at the hotel had a gala time thanks to the continuous hustle bustle and the media frenzy that came along.
The hotel also observed the Earth Hour and invited all guests next to the pool for a complimentary round of drinks and snacks. They decorated the hotel beautifully with candles.
Would love to return.

Dear Mr Verma,

Thank you so much for taking out time to type this positive review. It is so encouraging to learn that young Indian travelers like yourself are happy to stay with us and their default choice is Taj. It is also satisfying to be able to maintain your confidence in us and exceed expectations in many areas.
I have also noted your views on our "Vivanta" brand. You are more than welcome to write to me on this subject on gmvivanta.harimahal@tajhotels.com.

Look forward to see many of your visits at Taj Hotels.
