Novotel Vishakhapatnam Varun Beach

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 April 2012

We(Myself and husband) stayed at Novotel Vizag just after our wedding to relax. This was on a sunday. The hotel is phenomenal with regards to infrastructure, view and rooms. We were quite impressed by the beautiful property and its services. This is a business hotel from what i have heard but its a perfect breakaway for family and couples. We plan to get our families to stay here. Kiran and naidu have been extremely helpful, they also arranged for a nice cake in the rooms. The spa private rooms have the beautiful view of the sea. I forgot to mention that you stand anywhere in this hotel, you can view the beautiful sea. Its like sailing in a ship. The services are very warm and the staff is always smiling and helpful. What more could we ask for.

Room Tip: The spa private rooms are a must try as the view is spectacular with a combination of a massage. the...

Its an awsome hotel - Novotel Varun beach - sounds kool, good loacation attractive sea facing compared to their competitors..!Had amazing week long stay, comfortable rooms, great service. The room having a good sea facing - imagine taking a shower while gazing at ocean and feeling waves - brings to reality ! if you have a stay at Novotel. Hotel has a good connectivity to the city including market, malls, multiplex...couldn't imagine the begning of the day with the breakfast viewing the sea and the waves right from the restaurant and the same brings the pleasant view in the evening with its illuminitations. To get the perfect view its advisable to take the top floor cornor rooms.

Been here for a long haul stay at the hotel. I can easily say it is the finest hotel in Vizag.. The rooms have an amazing sea view and are very spacious, couldn't ask for more beautiful start for a day when you wake up in the morning looking at the sea.

The fitness room, is well equipped and the Spa relaxes you out. The most significant aspect are the friendly staff, who are keen to help you out at all times. Everyone I met were friendly, polite. The service was quick and efficient and everyone smiled and were happy to chat.

The infinity pool overlooks the sea and you could relax with a cup of coffee or a drink if you fancy, The only thing is you have to take your drink there, with out any complaint its only a couple of steps away from the lounge bar. The roof top has an amazing running turf laid out, and it is nice to have a run there, if you don't fancy the beach or treadmill.

Room Tip: Ask for the right or left wing towers, to have a good look at the beach road and the vast open sea...

The hotel looks nice. New hotel. However, a lot of negatives associated with poor customer service. CONSTRUCTION AT NIGHT! Yes! I did not misspeak. Construction during the day, at night. I came back from work around 9:30pm and there was banging on the wall, I spoke with the hotel staff and they told me that it will stop by 10pm. However, it did not. I had to call the front desk 5 times before just going down at 1:30am and getting them to come with me to hear all the banging and electrical saw usage. That was at night. There was also similar construction during the day - jackhammering and hammering. It was horrible. The staff were not any help. They would tell me everytime I complained "We will call them and tell them to stop in 2 mins". That was their response. The internet at the hotel was $80 per week! General Manager was no help. He told me he will get back to me, I am still waiting. The front desk, either they don't understand what to do or don't care. The waitstaff, except for one guy, was NOT helpful at all. If you want to take your food out to the pool and eat there, they will tell you "YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED". The young chef there was good though.
Overall - TERRIBLE customer service, but the hotel looks nice. Try GATEWAY hotel across the street, much better service.

I have been to this hotel a few times for lunch and and stayed here once, the rooms are clean and well equipped my one had a nice sea view, the pool is top class and food is good,( it the only place in India I got a beef burger) but like a lot of thing in India it falls short, the toilets in the main lobby need to be cleaned more as twice I have gone in and the floor has urine on it. The bar would not put the F1 on for me as the cricket was coming on at 2 but this was finished at 1:30, them they tried to tell me it only has one channel. If they can iorn out the small things this would be as good as any 5star hotel

Zipped through Vizag and stayed at the hotel for only one night, but liked what I saw. Rooms are smartly modern and all face the sea. Recommended.

Can't help narrating this experience: I needed a car at very short notice and novotel (quite reaonably) said it would take about 30 mins to arrange. So I called the next door Taj to check if they could help, and - get this - Taj, even after learning that I was staying with competition, got a travel company to call me within minutes who sent me a very nice Verna (I suspect it was the owner's car). That floored me and I cite this as an example of delightful service from both Taj Vizag and Arnav Travels.
