From the welcoming reception to the complimentary lunch and gifts when we left, this hotel really lived up to the Taj Vivante promise of "delightful surprises.". The location is excellent with a view across the water to Fort Kochi and the "infinity" pool takes advantage of this. A regular ferry service to the town, just a few minutes walk from the hotel, makes sightseeing very convenient.
The attractive colonial style furnishings are of the highest standard and rooms are spacious and well equipped. We were actually offered a choice but both were good. One of the aspects that set this hotel apart is the optional programme of events for guests. We took advantage of the complimentary "high tea" and the sunset cruise in the late afternoon. With three themed restaurants to choose from, there was no need to look elsewhere. Levels of service were excellent. Whilst there I also booked in for a spa treatment, which was a wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable experience. The hotel's programme of excursions is well worth investigating, especially the backwater canoe trip.
