To begin with, apologies to people in Chennai that I call this place as the Goa of the east coast. I know that many people are very passionate about their native state, and may not appreciate the comparison. This is just meant to capture the essence of the location in a title, and not to be taken literally. We reached the hotel on a Friday afternoon, around 3 pm. We were two families travelling together and had booked 2 rooms. About a couple of kilometres before the hotel, you can sense the proximity to the sea. Being from a coastal city myself, the whiff of the sea breeze was extremely welcoming. As soon as we reached the hotel, we took an immediate liking to the reception area. We had 2 little kids with us, and they got busy exploring the reception area, including the pool table, and the small lotus pond. From the reception area itself, you can see the sea, and it is an extremely invigorating view. We have stayed at 2 of the Taj properties in Goa, and our immediate reaction when we saw the hotel was that it was so similar to those in Goa. The rooms were comfortable, though slightly smaller than the normal Taj rooms. Unfortunately, the rooms we got faced the hotel entrance, and not the sea, though you could get a glimpse of the sea towards the left. Room service, as always with the Taj, was excellent and prompt. The thing I appreciate the most about the Taj hotels is that they never make a fuss when you request for a customized food preparation for a little kid. We have a 3 year old kid, and we requested for a kid's portion of khichdi to be served in the room. Not only did they prepare a very delicious khichdi without any spice, but they also did not charge us for it. This has been a consistent experience for us across all Taj hotels, and it is something that always gets us to prefer staying at the Taj. We visited the beach in the evening. It is a private beach situated just behind the hotel. The first thing that strikes you is the cleanliness of the beach. There is hardly any litter at all, and a lot of beach chairs placed by the hotel. For people who have visited beaches on India's west coast, the one major difference here is that since the beach faces the east, you don't get to see the sun setting on the horizon. Otherwise, you really won't feel much of a difference between this beach and the beaches at Taj Exotica or Taj Holiday Village in Goa. The hotel has plenty of other facilities like bicycles that you can borrow to ride around the property, a very well equipped children's play/activity area, a huge swimming pool, land zorbing, a golf cart that you can take to go around the entire property, and hammocks near the beachfront. They also have a wooden deck near the reception area, which faces the swimming pool. This deck is perfect to spend an evening, soaking in the view, and gazing at the night sky. The only one area where I felt this hotel did not live up to other Taj hotels was the service in the restaurant. They did not have a buffet dinner on weekdays, so we had to order a-la-carte. The food took simply too long to be served, and despite only 5-6 tables being occupied, responses were very slow when we asked for anything. This was a trend that ran across multiple meals. Even at breakfast, the tables were not laid out fully, they had placed forks and knives, but no spoons, and responses were quite slow. This has certainly not been our experience with other Taj hotels. The food however, was excellent. The breakfast spread was lavish, and almost everything we tried was excellent. Once again, I must mention that the staff were happy to pack a couple of snacks from the breakfast buffet for the kids to eat on our journey back. Overall, the stay was most memorable. The hotel is spread over a huge area, and is extremely beautiful. The beach is very clean and is great pleasure to spend the evening in, the food is great, and Taj hospitality, as always, does not disappoint.
Its grand and exotic blended with luxury. We wanted to have a family trip to celebrate my wife's birthday and chosen fisherman's cove by Taj Vivanta for its exotic location with private beach view As soon as we reached the property we have received a very warm welcome by the front office. My car and luggages were taken care by chauffeur and hotel boys. Generally the check-in time is 3:00pm. But I reached hotel by 10:30am as I was travelling with my 5 months baby. Within half an hour the courteous lady in the reception arranged our room. The reception and lobby area is big and well placed with sofa and a elegant pool view The pool with a decorated bar counter placed inside, is almost in the center of the entire 50 acre property. Taj has variants of rooms, inclusive of Seaview and Garden View rooms, King/Queen/Twin bed rooms and Supreme, Deluxe rooms along with cottages and villas. I will suggest to choose a seaview cottage or supreme room for the best view. Lavish green lawns and well decorated sitting areas are span over the entire place A special mention to restaurants should be done here. Taj has Anchor Bar in the lobby for wine lovers. Next is Seagull restaurant for breakfast and snacks. The breakfast provided has complete variety of Indian and continental cuisines along with juices, milk shakes and flavoured yoghurts. At Least 50+ variants of food will be served in the lavish breakfast brunch. Next is seaview restaurant named Bay-View. Its a open restaurant. Taj also has Upper Deck, another restaurant near new-beach area Battery operated cars are available to take you from reception to your cottages/rooms. Don't forget to have a property tour with them. We were overwhelmed by the facilities and services provided through our stay. We promise to get back here within an year, with our friends and family.
Amazing experience, starting right from our booking. We had a lovely time at the Fishermen's Cove. Went there with my hubby and son who were gifting me this vacation for my birthday and it turned out to be the best ever! We had a lovely villa closest to the beach. The room was very well done and clean. The baby cot that we had asked for our son was brand new and placed for use with a net and hangings for th baby to play. The dinner at the restaurant was amazing and so was the buffet next morning. The staff was wonderful, the lady in the lobby made friends with our son almost easily and left me and my hubby to have some time alone while she took care of the baby. We didn't even realise when nearly an hour was over! The hotel's general manager had tea with us and spoke to us about our views on the hotel. The sad part was that the villa was available for only 1 night, would have loved to extend our stay but that was not possible. We are Taj members and this has been by far the best experience we've had in any Taj property.
One of the best holidays I have spent with my family was stay at this resort this January. Apart from the place, weather in January in Chennai was just perfect for the stay without screeching sun and humidity. The location is about an hour's drive from the Chennai Airport. The location is a bit secluded as there is nothing much outside it. The rooms were as usual Taj special, well maintained and just superb with a sea view from the window. An advise to anyone who wishes to stay here, ask for room on second floor in the main building, off course if not taking the beach cottage. The restaurant Seagull has awesome breakfast buffet and other meals. Other restaurants in the hotel did not have much veg food options. Spent evenings on the private beach watching sunset and early mornings watching sunrise was just amazing. As Taj endorses its quality, it means it can only be appreciated after experiencing it. Very good and peaceful property and will surely visit again.
It was a fantastic but very expensive hotel! The location was very good as it was a beach side hotel. It was on the outskirts of the city but the connectivity was good. Surroundings of the hotel were superb and so were the interior and exterior decoration of the hotel. The hotel was hygienically maintained. Staff at the hotel was helpful and friendly. They were quick to attend to our requests. The room was heart shaped with two different styles of bathroom. There were swings outside the room and there was beach in front of the room. Everything in the room were in clean condition and amenities were also working properly. Hot and cold water facility was available for 24 hours. The wash room was also superb. Food served was good but it was expensive. Food was tasty, delicious and hygienic. They had many varieties in food. There was no delay in check-in and checkout time. There were a lot of activities in the hotel. Sightseeing facility was also arranged by the hotel.
