If someone ask me which is the best property of Taj I would name one & only one TAJ Vivanta Srinagar. This is an amazing property, one cannot believe until & unless he visits himself.

So much has been written about food and they all are right. I will just add you can get Jain meal too i.e. Shudh Sakahari food without onion and garlic. I was really amazed to find such food at a place known for its non-veg dishes. I was more amazed when I saw some foreigners having this jain food. Kudos to the Chef.

At the reception Shalini was at her best one has to learn from her how she was managing all the guests smilingly... May God bless her.

Room Tip: Left side rooms from the main building are the best ones...

Having got back from Srinagar just under a week ago, we're all still in awe of how wonderful this particular property is!

Arriving into Srinagar from Gulmarg mid-afternoon, we were greeted at the lobby by the duty manager Kaiser and his team who were very warm and welcoming. As we proceeded to the lobby, a refreshing fresh watermelon juice was served while we waited at the lounge area to complete the formalities.


Pros:

Rooms are of a very generous size, easily 500 sq. feet plus with massive bathrooms, a nice tub and a rain-shower, as you'd expect. Toiletries are Forest Essentials and over-all it's what you would expect from a Taj property.

This hotel definitely has one of the best swimming pool's with that view of Dal Lake to die for. This infinity type pool makes for a relaxing few hours at the hotel with excellent pool-side service too for you to order your drinks and finger snacks.

For the two nights we stayed at the Taj, one we dined at their open-air restaurant, Latitude, and boy-oh-boy were we impressed. Firstly, the service was impeccable and a very special mention to Mr. Atinder Pal who took very very good care of us throughout the duration of the meal with his prompt and friendly service. The food was lip-smacking and literally everything we ordered was phenomenal.



Cons:

While you do get one hour access of Wi-Fi complimentary, daily, over and above that is chargeable. Let's be real Taj - Wi-Fi is no longer a luxury and hotels at half your price provide it complimentary. Even it's main competitor, the Lalit Grand Palace provides it complimentary. It's not that one can't afford to pay INR 600 for a daily usage for two devices, it's just that staying at a luxury hotel, you'd expect a little more.

While for most of the part, the service was top-class, we had an unfortunate experience the night before we checked out as it took Room Service almost 45 min and 3 calls just to deliver some sachets of Green Tea. That was sort of a let down.


Overall verdict: Superb hotel, mostly very good service, a view to die for and definitely better, if you like contemporary hotels rather than classic, as compared to The Lalit Grand Palace (we had a meal there). If you're in Srinagar and want a great hotel - look no further.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on the higher-level to enjoy a private balcony and better views!

Beautiful room with the panoramic view of Dal lake and the city. Scrumptious food. We tried the chinese restaurant as well and it was nothing short of spectacular. Their chef was extremely courteous and even surprised us with a cake in the evening to celebrate our stay.

The checkin was effortless. Lovely kawha on arrival just sets you up for further pampering!

Would definitely like to visit again.

Taj just knows how to do it right. The staff is amazing. The rooms are spectacular. My father is wheelchair bound and we had a room in the main building wherein his access was uninterrupted. I stayed in the townhouse cottage to the left of the main building. The difference here was the baths were much larger.

And the food was remarkable. We ate in the coffee shop, and the chinese restaurant - both had fantastic food and service. The room service was flawless - they even entertained off menu requests even though they were fully sold out.

The views of the lake and mountains are amazing, and the eagles soaring above add to the wonderful experience.

Will always stay here while in Srinagar.
