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.
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.
Welcoming and comfortable stay. Slept very well as mattress was excellent (rare to find in India). Unfortunately, hot water was only available in the morning 7am to 10am. Breakfast was very good but bit slow. Overall a good experience.
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.
