Everything is classic about this hotel. Right from outside appearance to the minute details including service. The hotel is spread in a big area giving ample space to the guests. There are enough greenery inside and outside the hotel for you to relax and spend quality time. The lobby is really breathtaking. The wooden look everywhere gives the rich and relaxing feeling. There are gardens everywhere. While walking in the lobby, you find the greenery where you would like to spend time rather than going to room. Some rooms have balcony with garden, which is amazing.

The rooms are excellent. Very traditional look still modern. All amenities provided including the daily kits. Mini bar included in the rooms. There are a number of restaurants in the hotel. I liked the Indian one, which serves variety of Indian dishes.

The rewards program i. e. Taj Inner Circle does not provide much opportunity to redeem the points though like other hotels. So, if you are also looking for rewards points, probably you will be disappointed, if you want to use the points for merchandise of your choice.

Amazing place with very good service and amazing rooms. The beach was very beautiful and offers a lots of activities for kids. It has beautiful swimming pool and we loved having food in Seagull and Bayview. The Fishermen's Cove was amazing. Had a wonderful experience at the cottages.

The hotel is very good and the other services like food drinks is very nice. Swimming pool also very nice, it was just behind of my room, surrounding room resident can easily. The problem I faced that the Wi-Fi signal strength wasn't sufficient and less people who can speak or understand Hindi. The quality of food and drinks very good. Front office very helpful and can speak Hindi also and Tamil also. One more thing is that the pub place is very less. Otherwise, hotel is good.

Booking bills has not been provided as the staff told that the bill voucher, we can't provide because the payment has been done to makemytrip. I really need the hotel voucher and tax invoice because I was on official tour. In absence of Tax invoice along with tin, service tax no, luxury tax no, my company is not going to reimburse a single rupees. Please provide the same.

Stayed at the Hotel for 3 days & I was quite happy with my stay. Got a really warm welcome right at the start, the staff were really friendly. Especially a lady named Nani. The staff took our ever request with a sense of urgency & we really felt at home here. I would certainly recommend this hotel.

Well when it is Taj, what can someone say.Starting with Checking, the trademark Taj hospitality is there through out. The rooms are simply superb and the food is too good. The Taj hospitality is extended to room service which is extremely prompt. The activities part is well taken care of with multiple avenues being available for every person in the family.With great food experience and varieties available, for foodies it is a great place.Overall complete Taj / Tatas hospitality at its best.

We booked multiple rooms at the Connemara for a business event. I must say the team gave us excellent service and attention. They kept their word regarding all promises made regarding the group hospitality package offered. That is not what happens in most hotels. The leisure activities such as pool and poolside, spa, garden areas and business spaces were really well-maintained. The wooded surroundings make you forget that you are in the centre of a metropolitan city and the smiling service add the value to an extraordinary luxury experience. Do remember to ask for wi-fi service to be included, as if not, it is a paying service which in itself is shocking in today's times. And often takes time to be started up. Do ask for a room on the top floors for a great view. But if you are a pool person ask for pool facing inner rooms. The calm and tranquility is unbeatable.

A attractive hotel with beautiful wood work all around the hotel. The room was comfortable with good AC. The food was really good in taste. The hotel staffs were friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel is the heart of the city which is very useful for business people to travel around the city.

The experience with Vivanta Taj was very simple and lower than the expected. The luxurious feeling was not there and though the rooms were clean and spacious. The simple furniture and the simple ambience was making the place less passionate. The service was good and quick.
