      Location is good with friendly staff

      Paying for breakfast. You should do bed and breakfast, to have a bill put in front of you when you go in for your breakfast is not a nice touch

      It was a perfect experience, the staff very helpful and friendly, the hotel very beautiful and relaxing, the food at the restaurant both the Indian restaurant and the seafood restaurant by the beach is excellent and both chiefs and staff answers all your requests efficiently and with a smile.

      The hotel was really good, we have enjoyed staying at Taj the service was excellent special we had baby and they were very helpful, the hotel has 3 restaurants which is good its your choice, the drivers were really good special Sabastian was one of the best driver and we always wanted him to take us around it was good staying in Taj and the food was good. The best thing I like is there security is fantastic

      We arrived about 8:30am in the morning the welcomed us and we requested them early check in, they told us we have to pay half price we did not argue coz we had baby and we were tired but this was really shocking it was only 4 hours and they made us paying inr 5500, I belive such cases they should not charge special we were staying with them for 4 nights at list they should charge inr 3000 not 5500, this was the nightmare! I liked the hotel but coz of this it made me feel that they dont care all they cared was money! May be they should take course from Taj Malabar in Cochin were they never charged us when we check in ealry and we requested check out late they accepted till 6pm (( Taj Malabar is the best))

      The hotel is absolutly stunning inside and out. It is very modern and the rooms are superb and exceptionally clean. We had a sea view room which was excellent. The service was exceptional throughout our stay and the staff very friendly. The sea view from the restaurant and infinity pool is breathtaking as they are sited on a hill, however the resort extends all the way down to the sea where there are sun loungers and a beautiful restauarnt surrounded by cocunot trees and palms and there are buggies on hand to transport you around the resort. There are also different activities on everyday which are free, such as yoga, cooking courses, boat trip, fishing to name a few. There are 3 restaurants and the food is delicious, the best curry I have ever had.

      The only minor negative comment is that a few of the tiles need replacing in the swimming pool, but the rest of the resort is perfect so don't let this put you off.

      Vivanta by Taj Kovalam is surrounded by beautiful grounds and the views from the Meera Bar and Bait, the hotel's restaurant by the sea are excellent. The staff are both accommodating and friendly!

    • Couple

      The trip has left an indelible mark on our minds , it was a very comfortable and pleasant stay . We did not feel we were at a hotel, the moment we entered we were made so comfortable that we almost developed a proprietory feeling over the premises and were extremely nostalgic to leave the place. Had it not been for prior bookings that we had made , we would have extended our trip at Taj kovalam. The hospitality was unmatched and the experience incomparable, we look forward for mmore associatons especially with the Taj vivanta.

      I do not have a single word to write about this and even if I ponder over it for an hour i will not be able to pen down anything. We had a fantastic experience and it was not close to perfection , it was perfect . It couldn't have been better.

      7.0

      We liked the location and the lovely gardens. We liked the price of food/drink. Some staff were very good (laundry,housekeeping)

      Quite a number of staff are unable to understand or speak good enough English which made it difficult for us. Our orders in the dining areas were often completely wrong.

    • Couple

      The staff were the most helpful and friendly we have ever experienced. Their kindness made the holiday one of our most enjoyable vacations ever.

      The tours to the elephant sanctuary was poorly organised

    • Couple

      Service, location, comfort of rooms and food were excellent

      Prices of drinks were a rip off. Pool needs to be re-tiled

    • Couple
      7.0

      Very clean, very comfortable/luxurious, good service all round. Nice to have a seemingly private beach and complimentary lagoon boat trips.

      * Rooms were cleaned at the odd time of 3 in the afternoon, when we wanted to take a nap. It was very awkward to sit outside on the hot balcony while the room was being cleaned. * Prices on menus were very misguiding - taxes (e.g. VAT) were added later onto the invoice and the menu prices did not seem to be up to date in the first place. Our invoices often did not look anything like the menu prices at the restaurant and bar.

    • Couple
      9.2

      It was so peaceful and tranquil here. A very relaxing stay and very well looked after by the excellent staff. The hotel rooms are lovely and as comfortable as if you were in your own home. It was not to difficult to go to kovalam beach or do a back waters tour or trip to varkala beach from the location either. Plus the hotel offers a private beach which adds to the appeal. The 3 restaurants all serve fantastic food, particularlt Bait the seafood, beachside restaurant.

    • Older travelers
      8.2

      I wish to praise the hotel reception manageress, Ms.Leona Ruis at the the Vivanta KOVALAM. She is the most gracious and understanding person possible. She made our stay unforgettable.

      The only thing I would care to improve would be the staff training. The higher level staff have beautifully groomed uniforms, The assistants wear wrinkled, ill-fitting white clothes and seem bored/tired..

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      The garden, the way to the beach along the lagoon, the pool, the beach restaurant (great seafood, very nice staff)

      Prices are too high. Service in the breakfast restaurant is too slow, and in the bar, it's more than slow

    • Couple
      9.2

      Excellent service and attention to detail.

      Price of buffet breakfast not explained, had assumed this was included.
