“Nice property for Bangalore though a little expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2013

I am a Silver member of Taj Group. I was in Bangalore for a trade roadshow and stayed in Taj Vivanta MG Road in Oct 2013. Simply great location. I would totally recommend this property for stay in Bangalore. The property is a little over priced but then all hotels in Bangalore are so.

Room Tip: Great Centrally located property of Taj in Banagalore

Having stayed at the Taj Lands End in Mumbai just before this at first this hotel was a bit of a disappointment. The rooms were smaller, the beds and pillows weren't pre-ordered (a rare luxury in itself), the pool was functional and the view of the city was less impressive. But its a slow burner this one. After a couple of nights I really appreciated it. The restaurants - the Italian and Chinese were second to none, the food was amazing and the happy hour room open from 7-8pm on the 9th floor was a joy. Despite the traffic outside the room was quiet, excellent double glazing ad having a terrace was fun. Still a shame about the pool, its surrounded by the tables from the main restaurant so sis not exactly a luxury relaxing place to swim! Staff impeccable however and a thoroughly enjoyable stay. Try the spa too, ayurverdic and very good.

Room Tip: I liked the 9th floor, quieter and overlooking the road is I think better than the pool.

Right from their warm welcome till their good bye, was certainly a visit to remember. Love the property, location and the garden. The best was the lavish buffet for dinner. The only suggestion would be, the SPA and the breakfast happened to be a bit unpleasant.

The service in the hotel right from the pick up from the bangalore cantt was awesome. The check in procedure was so prompt that it was upto the mark and standard maintained by the group. The room was implacable as was expected. The room service was good and prompt in serving the food. The coffee shop breakfast and the spread was good and food was sumptuous. Check out was instant.

The stay at Vivanta was pretty good. The security process to get inside is pretty cumbersome. The lounge is great and has a great ambience. The rooms are pretty spacious and clean. The meeting rooms are not that great though.

I absolutely love this property. This is my third time there and the service and quality is always consistent.

The hotel meets you at the airport right at the luggage pickup and whisks you to the hotel. Check is fast and accurate, with fresh juice available. The staff is courteous and very professional.

Although it can be a bit annoying, the staff knows exactly who you are, where you are, and checks in on you constantly. These rooms also have balconies which I love. The room service is prompt and delicious, the breakfast buffet awesome. The rooms are spotless and comfortable.

The location in bangalore is fantastic, directly across from a shopping mall (1 MG Road) which has restaurants and a food mart. Down the street is an HSBC and a MacDonalds; as well as a supermart type of store.

Last year when I checked in I was feeling very under the weather and the staff bought cold medicine for me and delivered it to my room.

This hotel has the best service I have ever experienced, I highly, highly recommend it.

Room Tip: I don't think there are bad rooms. Overlooking the pool is pretty.

Loved my stay at the Vivanta. Service was great, right from the ease of check-in and check out to the handwritten note and a plate of dessert I found in my room after a long day's work. It was a gift from the manager and just made my day. The restaurant's are good too.

I wish the room was a little bigger, but it was very comfortable nonetheless. They upgraded me to a higher floor and a better view (the lake view) and it was lovely to wake up to the view every morning.

Love the poolside. Very pretty.

Will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Choose a higher floor
