Vivanta by Taj - Hari Mahal, Jodhpur
Ranked #6 of 99 Hotels in Jodhpur
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 March 2014

The Taj is a lovely property from every angle. The lobby, the public spaces, the grounds, the room are all reeking of old world charm. The facility has modern amenities which add to the comfort of the stay. The service is considerate and courtiers, and the check in/out is effortless.
The food is very good, and breakfast is rich and tasty.
But alas the swimming pool is not heated and in January it's freezing cold.
You wonder how a beautiful and rich facility as the Taj, have overlooked a simple detail like that.

We stayed at this property for four nights. Whilst this hotel provided the level of luxury you would expect from Taj, we were overwhelmed with the care and attention shown by the staff.

My wife took ill (a minor ailment) whilst we were there. I phoned the front desk and asked them if they could help with the medication she needed ( being a Doctor). Without any hesitation, this drug was delivered to our room within the hour. We also received a phone call from them enquiring about my wife's health. It was comforting and reflected their sincerity.

The restaurants in the hotel served up some of the best food we had during our long holiday in India. Ajay, the chef of their Chinese restaurant along with Laxmi Singh and Mahipal Singh of The Latitude are assets to this hotel-enough reason for anyone to return!! They regularly approached the diners, encouraging them to request for whatever took their fancy!!

The cleaning and turndown service was immaculate and the toiletries provided were world class.

We had at the time of check out to undertake the long journey to Jaiselmer, forgot to pack our bottle of Gin and Malt whisky and had left this in the room!! I phoned Rahul, a manager at the reception, some thirty miles into our journey to inform him of this. He reassured us that our supplies would be waiting for us upon our return from Jaiselmer. And so it was!! Rahul along with two of his colleagues returned our goods, making sure that all the pre-requisite formalities were completed. In my view, this reflects the quality of training Taj provides for their staff and management.

This is the third time I have brought my tour group in to stay and never have regretted it. A lovely cloth given to refresh and a nice glass of juice to cool while waiting to be checked in. All set even before our drinks were finished. Rooms are always lovely, in fact I have had the same room three times now too! Large, bright and all necessary needs met with desk, chair, settee to sit in by the windows overlooking the pool. Comfortable bed, t.v., large safe to hold good sized laptop, tea and coffee making and bar fridge. Bathroom meets needs and the shower is great.

There is even an overhead fan if you like that instead of the aircon. Comp water as well.

We had dinner and it was just super! In the mornings the buffet breakfast is perfect with fresh orange juice too. Breakfast starts at 7 a.m. Wifi is not free but I feel very reasonable to have it in your room. There is also an area outside the dining area that you can sit and enjoy your meals...lovely touch.

It is a beautifully appointed hotel, so very regal. Staff are all nice and efficient. The pool is a delight to see from your room and wonderful that they have netting up now that is really hard to see but keeps the pigeons out of this area for us to enjoy it more.

Don't think I need to say that I will be back!

Lovely place - service a bit fussy & over the top but generally very nice. Room was large with a balcony & although we both got twin beds rather than the kingsize rooms we'd booked, the beds were comfortable so it wasn't too much of an issue. Shower was fantastic.

The package we booked came with a half day city tour, which turned out to be 4hrs with a car and a (lovely) driver, so don't expect a guide (as we did) if your booking includes a similar arrangement. This turned out not to be an issue - the audio tour at the Fort is the best I've heard - a charming way to spend the morning.

Breakfast was fine. Dinner was great - there's a "single person Indian tasting menu", which was perfect for me, as it meant I wasn't faced with way too much food, while my friend (who lives in India and was ready for the Western options) enjoyed her fish & chips. The wine we ordered was reasonably priced & perfectly chilled. Waiter could have been slightly more focused, but was pleasant and we got along okay.

Wifi was not free. This always annoys me & I thought I'd checked it before we booked. Having said that, it wasn't too expensive, so I got over it but really - hotels of this standard shouldn't charge.

I enjoyed my stay at the Taj. I liked the rooms. They were large, nicely furnished, clean and comfortable. Breakfast wad a nice spread and the staff were friendly. We ate at the Chinese restaurant one night and the only thing I liked was the garlic rice. The rest of the dishes tasted and looked the same. They must have used the same sauce for everything.

We are loyal Taj visitors usually prefer to stay at Taj hotels across whenever we travel. This time around our expectation was not let down.
We stayed for 2 nights in Feb 2014. Upon arrival we were upgraded to a pool view room. Very nice courtesy!
Ambica at the front desk was really friendly and helpful to us. She helped with all the places to eat etc. We had dinner at the Italian coutyard resturant here and Sandeep was the server who made sure we enjoy every moment spent there.
The guest relations manager - Mr. Chawla is also very hospitable.

Temperature controlled pool would have been nice along with complimentary WiFi.

Overall wonderful stay and no complaints.

Will surely go and stay again.
