“my wonderful last stop before flight!”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

This was my 2nd visit to the hotel, the first being back in 2009. It was truly a divine week after a fortnight of non stop travelling! The rooms are practical, comfortable & of good design! The bed was better than mine at home!! I just adored my room & the TV with plenty of great channels! I was only disappointed the remote had no timer on it so I couldn't fall asleep to a movie!! oh well....
The 24 hour fitness centre was extremely useful, although not alot of equipment, at least it had air con & a few of the basic necessities! It would be nice with a better size ball for stretching & perhaps a spinning bike? I hope the steam room in the changing room will be in working order on my next visit! The hotel staff are all delightful. The restaurant/breakfast staff were all very friendly & aware of my particular favourite foods & remembered daily what I would order!! The breakfast was just sensational!! The atmosphere at the hotel is quietly luxurious & they have another restaurant specialising in seafood closer to the sea along with a pitch & putt golf course! The pool is next to the restaurant. I have already booked my next visit!
Thank you lovely people at Taj !!!

This was our first stay at this vivanta by taj resort. The views and landscaping are fantastic. The staff although not always efficient were overall very friendly. We travelled with our baby daughter and were surprised that the hotel on our arrival only had one very old high-chair which was not always available and that the mattress of the baby cot was too small for the cot. Not ideal.
The hotel is located next to a temple and due to a holiday the temple blared loud music and chants about 12 hours a day starting at 5 am. The staff did nothing to warn us of this fact or to effectively address our complaint the following day. We stayed four nights and paid for an upgrade to a suite after two nights. The noise continued, we continued to complain and reception continued to ignore us saying the temple was out of their control. We would have expected an apology, to be moved to a more quiet room, or some sort of service recovery. On check-out the GM finally offered us lunch but we felt this was too little too late.

Room Tip: The suite was beautiful.

We were fortunate to be upgraded to a suite upon arrival and the room was fabulous. Also, small touches like fresh fruit, biscuits and chocolates were amazing in this day and age of cutting services. The staff were very friendly, helpful and excellent at their jobs from the check in staff through to the bar and restaurant and the ground staff. The food in Jasmine Bay was excellent for breakfast and we had a fabulous meal in Bait also. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained and the pool stunning. All in all we had an excellent experience and just hope the Taj at Cochin matches the standard here when we arrive in a few days time.

Room Tip: We were upgraded but I am sure all the rooms at the top are fabulous

Among all places where we have stayed this was the best experience
Awesome staff specially Mr Jagan in Curries and ali mukhtar in jasmine bay were awesome
Made my kids so happy , No words simply awesome

Apart from that all the staff was very warm & courteous and always smiling , even gate keepers always greeted us with a smiling face every time we passed by

I know all this is possible only with perfect management , My special thanks for the GM who is managing the hotel and keeping it spic and span.
Awesome management

Room Tip: go for a room in series 301,401,501 those have a better view
