5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

We were thoroughly impressed by the service at this hotel. Stayed five nights in January and all staff across the board were extremely attentive. The life guard/pool boy in particular was professional; he went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. The rooms are lovely and very clean. The food, particularly Goan specialities, are well worth trying. We were even complimented with free wine on our final night. I would definitely recommend this hotel if staying in Panjim. We found nearby Baga and Anjuna beaches to be way over-rated and extremely touristy.

I had stayed here for 3 days and was on business conference. The Hotel is good but i would suggest if you are for fun in Goa, the other properties of TAJ like the VIllage would be best of the choice. This is in heart of the City. Market, Cruises are near by. I didnt like the food here at all.
By Taj's standard the food could have been better.

Room Tip: Try book for Village by Taj' approximately same cost but a better place then this.

After staying in its sister hotel the Taj Palace in New Delhi we were pleasantly surprised by Vivanta in Panaji. We were supposed to stay at the Marriott, however they were overbooked - 'shame on them'.

This last minute rebooking to the Vivanta we certainly did not regret.

Well organised check-in with the minutest attention to detail. A very spacious room with good 'Feng Shui'. Great choice in cuisine, the bar appeared a bit empty/boring. The hotel is well situated for walking trips into town, and close to the 'Forrest' park.

Simple, modern, great service. One downside was found by its Spa/Wellness offer. This was below-par, and felt inexperienced and over-priced. You will get far better treatment 'on the beach'.

Room Tip: West-side 3rd floor. Go for the midsized rooms.

This was my 1st Taj experience. I must say that it was bang on!!! Service was very good.. Food quality was even better... Chef Sahil was a wonderful person as well as very good Chef... Room quality is average nothing extra ordinary.. View from my room was zero but except this point it was a very good experience.. Dont forget to try Angara Lobster!!!

I stayed at vivanta Taj Panaji for 2 nights from 24th jan 2013 , starting from my check in ( with my family ) to the check out every thing was as smooth as it can be . It's situated right in middle of panaji city and you can get every thing you need nearby within minutes of walking , i chose this hotel becoz i wanted a calm stay as compared to the hotels on baga or calangute ( only 15-20 min drive from the hotel) . Mr. Cleto Pereira of hotel was really nice , good turn down service , gr8 food at lattitude , nice pool . Didn't used the spa so can't comment on it .

Room Tip: Choose room on higher floor.

We recently had the honour of being gifted 2 nights at the Vivanta by Taj on 5 January 2013 from our family for our wedding night and reception. After what was a huge emotional day, we arrived to our surprise to the most beautiful room imaginable and I was so happy I burst into tears. The staff were so friendly and wonderful I would go back in a heartbeat. The poolside service was also amazing and what a beautiful setting. The pure indulgence of this experience absolutely topped off our wedding. The quality of food in room service was also outstanding. Thank you to all the staff for making our time so special.
