Top Reviews of Vivanta by Taj
I stayed at the Vivanta by Taj - Trivandrum for the 3rd time. I travel there every August to host a medical conference. This year specially, it was an altogether delightful experience right from the moment I stepped it. The front office staff was extremely helpful and made me feel very welcome. Not only was the check-in very speedy, he even took my bags and escorted me till my room. The rooms are very cosy and ensure that I get a good night's sleep. The food has always been a plus point here. But this time, it was again a pleasant surprise to see the delicious spread at breakfast. The girl at the counter remembered me from last year and welcomed me back. Apart from the mouth watering local delicacies, it was the best fresh filter coffee I have had ever. They even offered to pack a few pastries and muffins for my son to have later when he felt hungry. My wife and my 3 year old son also had a blast chilling by the pool while I completed my work. I think the most memorable thing from any travel is the experience of interacting with the staff, and I must say the staff here went out of their way to ensure that the smallest of the things was taken care of. All in all, I really enjoyed my stay at the Taj and can't wait for next August to visit and stay there again. I highly recommend the hotel for pleasure and business travellers both.
This is what is called a service with a class apart. Taj has always proven itself to be one of the best among the top hotel and service providers in India. Visited this hotel while on a conference visit to Trivandrum. The conference hall was big enough to accommodate more than at least 200 people. The services were definitely class apart. Food was just superb, provided complimentary drinks also (not on company's expense). The rooms were very spacious with pretty good ambiance and view. All the essentials are provided so you need not carry anything with you except for the clothes. The location was also good in the sense that it is one of the prime locations of Trivandrum and everything can be found nearby. Good non-veg food joints are nearby where good food is available if you want to go for budget food. The staff was very nice, calm and courteous and will be there with you for any kind of assistance required. Arranged transport for my family to visit various beaches and different tourist spots in and around Trivandrum. Overall an awesome experience.
Compared to many other Taj hotels, the Trivandrum Taj is just another 5* hotel. Location wise it is quiet okay, about a 10 min drive from the nearest railway station and bus stand. Getting an auto rickshaw is quiet a problem whereas you can depend on the hotel travel assist or an on call taxi for your travel needs. The property itself is rather old looking but kept clean. Lobby is really spacious and check-in and checkout is really nice and smooth. Reception staff are really courteous and so also the other staff. Rooms are showing signs of age here and there but they are adequately furnished with good selection of toiletries. The toilets are quiet clean but not good enough for a high end deluxe hotel. Sleep quality is good because of good quality bedding and pillows. Room service is excellent but the food could be better. They boast of the best Chinese restaurant in town. Be warned, they do not open for lunch, only dinner. Food presentation is good but is dull in taste. The other restaurant is good with good and a superb buffet breakfast with a good spread and attentive waiters. Swimming pool and other amenities are really very nice. They have both slow (free) and fast WiFi (paid), which is excellent. Overall its a good property, but for the price you might get a better deal in some other properties in Trivandrum.
