I have been to bangalore several times on business and this hotel has been the best overall. Great ambiance, excellent service at breakfast, got so many nice surprises by the chef when ordering room service dinner. Sunday brunch buffet has been the BEST I have had in my life!!!

It is very rare to have expectation surpassed but this hotel did it with style and ease.

Hotel design is very chic; lovely internal landscape blending lovely bar and outdoor areas, great rooms, nice restaurants and pleasant pool. Did not get to visit the spa but wish I had.

By far the most impressive thing is the service. The hotel clearly selects special people for their team, but the training and common sense courtesy is evident in every interaction. Very professional team and proactive in guest engagement to make you feel highly valued. Customer experience brilliantly executed.

I hope to return soon.

Very minor gripes only such as the e-wine list not being accurate which sort of defeats one main function, and I'd caution the housekeeping to try and clean right into the corners else it will start to look a little grubby in time. But not enough to write about really - oops.

Superb hotel highly recommended.

Dear Reviewer,

Thank you so much for the compliment to our hotel. The hotel has received 9 international awards for its design. Primarily for Its unique mobius build and for the concept of memory creation by using 16 shades of tinted glass and embedding an Earth to Sky visual on its facade.

Your positive comments on our staff go a long way in reinforcing to our team of great associates and hosts that we are on the right track.

I am looking forward to seeing you again in the future. Please feel free to connect with me before your next stay on mukut.chakravarti@tajhotels.com

Best Regards
Mukut Chakravarti

I stayed here now for the sixth time, after having tried nearly all of the other similar-priced hotels in Whitefield, Bangalore. Once again I was impressed with the unpretentious individuality of both the style of the hotel and the staff. I was lucky to be in town on the evening that management laid on a complimentary drinks and barbecue social event for guests...a great idea as travelling solo can sometimes be rather dull.

With two excellent restaurants and a chill-out roof-top bar, what's not to like?

I imagine this hotel targets mostly the business community, but for me tourists and families would love this place too.

Somehow, all of the staff have an uncanny way of knowing what you want / like and exceeding your expectations...give it a try next time you are in town!

I booked a room for 5 days. However my physical condition did not allow me to make a trip, and I cancelled 10 days before the actual trip. Hotel did not reimburse the total cost at all. I wasted 600 dollars for nothing. There should be a better system for the cancelling!

This was my first stay at the Vivanta by Taj Hotel in Whitefield, Bangalore and I was very impressed by the experience. The Hotel is smart, modern and particularly set up well for business people.

The thing that shone out more than anything was the hotel's fantastic staff. To a person they were incredibly professional, welcoming, friendly, helpful and with genuine smiles and warmth! They were a delight and impressed from the moment our conference party arrived at the front door. Rather than be dumped at one's room with one's luggage, you are escorted there by a member of staff who orientates you to the hotel and its facilities and explains how everything in your room works.

My room was clean, had all one could need and the bed was very comfortable; the book on yoga that is in every room (Dhyana Praveshika and Ashtamurti Upasana) provided some great morning exercises to run through!

I didn't have time to visit the spa, but I heard its very good.

Every morning on arrival at breakfast one was greeted by Soumya or one of her colleagues, who exude sunshine even without the sun, and staff there ensure you discover all the delights on offer, whether Indian food or any other....for those from abroad, note that the Indian breakfast is delicious. Overall, the quality of the food throughout the day, in whatever restaurant, was excellent and service equally so.

There is no doubt in my mind that it is the staff and the values and culture they maintain that makes this a great hotel to stay in (especially for this area of Bangalore).

Thank you guys, you made my trip very enjoyable and I hope I may get an opportunity to visit again. I wish you all and your hotel every good fortune.

Room Tip: The upper floors (I had been on the 5th) have some great views of the area around.
