Taj Madikeri Resort & Spa, Coorg
Ranked #1 of 26 Hotels in Madikeri
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 25, 2013

as you drive to the resort from Madikeri town through the golf course you start realizing the uniqueness of this place.The road beyond the golf course seems to have been built for the hotel only.During monsoon the drive is through thick mist and rains.The lobby itself is so unique with the view and architecture sits on top of the hill and everything else-cottages/restaurant is on the slope of the hill.Cottages are huge, fits a full family easily and the experience is amazing.Nothing like anything else in Coorg,though i have not seen the Tamara.The outdoor pool at the bottom of the hill is too good to relax in the middle of nature with a thick forest on one side.Combined all this with the wonderful service makes this place a must visit.Tried the pork ribs instead of dinner buffet , was outstanding.So you can assume why the prices don't drop below INR10K/night even during weekdays

Room Tip: i think any room will have the same nature view ahead

Nothing can ever beat the Taj Hospitality....that we knew.....having visited majority of Taj properties in the country...but Taj Madikeri beats them all.. .. the moment you set your step in the welcome lounge you are awed by the breathtaking view.... we went in the monsoons and it was simply awesome...the mist engulfing you in the wide open lounge with the warmth of the Jaggery- coffee keeping you cosy....it was heaven.... as soon as the mist cleared you get to see the spread out property.... with its lush green grounds dotted with the turquoise of the swimming pool.....everything constructed without sacrificing the flora and fauna of the area......I am at loss of words for this property....

and more surprises awaited us ....the rooms are awesome....with the glass walls bringing the forest right at your footstep.... the bathroom is sooooo spacious and beautifully designed that one doesnt feel like leaving it.....and if one does leave the room , one is attracted towards the temperature controlled infinity pool .....wet your senses with the drinks served right there and your soul with the mist kissing your face....there are so many activities that one doesnt feel the need to venture out anywhere else....

.and add to it the gracious and ever smiling staff who makes it a point to keep you pampered throughout your stay.....


The General Manager himself is soo gracious that one stays overwhelmed ....he is always on the roll ensuring the impeccable hospitality....

A MUST DO PLACE.....WILL GO AGAIN....DEF...

I visited this property in April and this review is long overdue. I will be just the one of many adding my accolades. Having critiqued and grumbled my way through a number of Taj properties in recent times, Vivanta by Taj Madikeri came across as a breadth of fresh air.
Great Location and a fantastic property. The moment you walk into the lobby you get awed by the view and vast openness of the place. I stayed there for 7 days and that is when one really gets a true essence of the place. We stayed in a Premium Indulgence Cottage, and was it indulgent. Probably the largest hotel room I have ever stayed in in India. The room was beautifully designed, with a feeling of space. Full glass viewing windows on all three sides, brought the forest to your doorstep.
But all this just makes one part of the experience great. What completed it for me was the impeccable service. The staff were polite to the hilt, the chefs ever ready to please and accommodate, the promptness and efficiency with which the smallest problem was addressed.
This is a resort where each and everyone takes pride in what they are doing, and with a smile. The credit also must go to the ever efficient general manager, who is on the ball day in and day out making sure that everything functions like clock work and no stone is left unturned.
So happy was I with my holiday, that this is one place I would really make the effort to visit again.

Thank you for appreciating our culinary team who did a wonderful job in customizing the dining experiences for you and I will pass on your appreciation to them.

We Stayed as a couple at Vivanta on 20-22nd June.
Approach road from madikeri Starts with Lovely Vivanta boards and KM to go makes you more excited about this much discussed property of TAJ. The lush green golf course greets you on the way.
and again you find yourself lost in the Misty Forest.Finally you arrive at the reception area just to be greeted with awesome view you can never think of. The property is just superb. Staff was quite helpful who told us about the entire property over some local(famous)Coorg special drink.
Cottages are very specious and surrounded by dense forest.
You have ample of things to do here biking,pottery and many more.
Room Service and food was good.
In all it's definitely one of the best place I've visited recently.Kudos to Vivanta team for making our stay memorable one.

This trip was for our honeymoon in (20th june 2013 - 23rd june 2013)... and what a beautiful surprise it turned out to be...we are from Delhi.... and i personally have stayed in many hill side resorts... and this is definitely The Big Daddy of them all!!

We took 'Best of Coorg and Bekal' Package... whereas bekal disappointed me a lot (will keep it for separate review)....

Vivanta by taj coorg was breathtakingly beautiful.... spread in 180 acres... it is the world's 7th only rain forest resort (one of the housekeeping staff told us)... what i really like about this property is... that they have very well and tastefully maintained the feel of a forest without overconstructing it ... it actually feels that you are living out in wilderness but with pampered and high end luxury service...

it takes a tiresome journey of about 4 hours from manglore airport ( 3.5 hrs from bekal, kerala)... but the moment you reach the resort... i bet that all of your tiredness would go away in a second... the weather was amazing... a little cold but not too much (it is also the monsoon time so for people who love rain, cool weather and hills... please dnt look any further... come here) ... there are clouds and mist almost everywhere in the resort... so the feel becomes automatically romantic...

on arrival you are greeted by smiles and polite conversations with the reception staff... asking about your travel... and suggesting stuff that we can do while on the resort... oh sorry... did i forget to mention panoramic view of the resort from the reception which is to die for...

They have these cute little golf carts driving through out the property called 'buggy'... a good and easy mode of transportation in the resort since it's really really big... we preferred both walking and buggy at different point of times... do try it... the walk through the property is amazing... they have these picturesque spots after every few meters... like small ponds... paddy fields... grand swimming pools... gardens (try the Buddha garden)...small huts close to cliff where you can just stand and look at the valley... just amazing...

*i really appreciated how the buggies would stop on seeing us walking and would politely offer a ride... means the staff is well trained and sorted... it's a small thing but people who pay attention to such details are true luxury service providers!

We stayed in the premium indulgence cottage... which was amazingly beautiful... our cottage was right on a cliff with dense forest around so total privacy... the cottage for most of the times was surrounded by mist & clouds which you can see through big glass windows...everything about the room was perfect... the decor...the bed... cleanliness... personal toiletry products given by the resort... just perfect...

Now about the service.... we were literally spoiled by the in room dinning people...for example if we would as for a bottle of wine and a snack... firstly they would make sure that it is delicious and presentable... secondly they would send 2 - 3 items 'on the house'... yes you read that right... they would send us free food along with our order just to make us feel special and pampered... now that's the kind of treatment i want on my honeymoon... the staff was always accommodating to my every need and at every point of time...

The food at the fern tree was delicious... you can immediately see the efforts they have put in every dish and it's presentation... we did not get the chance to dine at nelakki ( authentic coorg cuisine) and Dew (wellness cuisine)... maybe next time... 10/10 for the food...

since it was the monsoon season they did not have any outdoor dinning experiences which are very romantic... like right in the middle of forest they would provide you a fine dinning experience... do try it if you go in the non- monsoon season... for the last night the f&b team organized a romantic candle night dinner right next to Dew with the open panoramic views of the valley...we were having dinner and mist would come and go... it was amazing... Chef Garima was serving us... and on our request she served us some really creative continental food... we did not want that traditions salads and pastas... so we left it on her... and it was mind blowing... the whole F&B team is just superb!! Kudos!

Everyone at Vivanta by Taj Coorg... and I mean everyone... was polite... well mannered... helpful... efficient... well spoken & friendly...

Would definitely come here again and again inspite the long travel time from Delhi...

Room Tip: Go for luxury bliss villa with private plunge pool... it's the best out of the lot... definitely...

We stayed here only for a night en route to Bangalore. We booked a cottage overlooking the valley. The moment you enter the hotel, a truly breathtaking view of the mountains and clouds greets you. We were made comfortable with the local coffee and Ms. Vaishali finished our checking process and told us about the property. Well, Taj hospitality is on a different level altogether and that's why our expectations are also high!

Vaishali accompanied us with our luggage to our room and gave a us a tour around since it was almost a suite. She's a nice little bundle of energy! The room was great with a panoramic view of the mountains and clouds. The room service food is quick and delicious. The turn down service person who came in paid attention to everything required. Since we were lighting the fireplece, (yess! the room had a real fireplace!) and sipping our tea, he bought us more wood and loads of tea bags of our choice. The lunch on the following day from Nellaki was unforgettable. Local flavours served hot! Wow!

2 things for improvement: Please don't sell us your nature tours even before we have seen our room. People drive down for hours and probably need rest before they can decide what they want to do. Secondly, the service during breakfast was definitely slow. This is unacceptable from a Taj. Please take care.
