Vivanta by Taj was one of the best resorts we have stayed at. The main attraction, for us, was the houseboat day trip on the lake (Kerala backwaters). The resort itself is set in a beautiful serene setting. If quiet relaxation is your goal, this place is for you. There is a bunch of fun activities for the whole family too. The staff was excellent, friendly and quick to respond to our every need. Spacious villas. There are only about 25-30 units set in a large wooded area and so it lacked the hustle and bustle (a plus for us) of a typical resort. Good restaurants, Indian classical entertainment at dinner and a sumptuous breakfast buffet. The outdoors shower (attached to each unit) took a little time to get used to but once privacy issue was no longer there, it was fine. Overall, this place is a good one.
The hotel location was excellent, without doubt one of the best resort i have stayed. Staffs were very helpful and offer excellent service. Rooms were very clean and overall it is worth every money you spend. Food was also good.
We stayed here in aug 2014 and it was a great experience. we had a wonderful and time here. Right from check in to check out everything is good and i would recommend this hotel for people who loves nature .
It is very nice resort with great location and neatly maintained and affordable charges. I wish I could have stayed there for couple of nights. I stayed there only for one night but still it was memorable one. good food, nice swimming pool and great lake view.
Provides a lovely environment with quaintly designed cottages over canals, with lush greenery around. Comfortable rooms with good air-conditioning. Hotel is located next to a beautiful lake and a bird sanctuary.
Rooms are not up to the mark need some more improvement , i would say a decent stay nothing great as such. Food was bad need improvement. Go to this place if you are getting any deal or if you didn't get any other stay.
Some plus points.
1. Faces lake.
2. Quite and green place.
