“Excellent, centrally located hotel in Goa”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

A great place to stay if you want to check out the charming capital of Goa. The food was absolutely topping! Especially the traditional Goan preparations. The Crab Xec Xec and the Fish Hirvicodi stood out, as did the vegetarian entree Tambdibhajji which, since it is mainly boiled amaranth leaves and stem, is virtually impossible to make palatable. The chef made it taste wonderful.
Nice views from the roof top and some very nice Taj touches. For instance, when my children ordered for movies from their DVD library (which is free), they'd send over popcorn and soda.
To summarize, great hospitality. Special thanks to restaurant manager Mr. Royston Dsouza and Executive Chef Sahil Desai for pampering us!

Room Tip: The view from the fifth floor rooms is the best

Stayed in this property for 4 days & 3 nights for a Biz trip to Goa ..... this is small sized property compared to the typical Taj properties .. the lobby area is smaller than most and the seating area particularly sofa was quite small ...

however i can clearly say that this is one of the best taj properties that i have stayed at till now ... believe i have stayed in almost all their properties including taj cape town :-)

My Reco's include
1. Ideally located for a Biz trip ... it is right in the heart of Panjim and makes travel quite easy .. however if you are on a holiday then the beach etc is quite some distance ....
2. Superb rooms
3. EXCELLENT service levels and it was a pleasure for me
4. Breakfast is buffet service and the spread is excellent ... quite large and covers south indian, north indian , continental, eggs counter, waffles & pancake counter with a superb coffee :-)
5. Room service is excellent .. timely service backed with quality food
6. Free airport pickup and drop is a great feature
7. OUTSTANDING value for the money that you pay ( i stayed at Corporate Rates and so pls do read this in reference to your room rate :-) :-)

Overall one of the best properties that i have stayed in and for sure will come back :-) :-)

Room Tip: Try and get rooms with the double bed ... they are very comfortable

Located in the heart of Panjim city. Vivanta is definitely a value for money option. The food was amazing. Delicious food in Tamari and Latitude. All staffs are courteous. Starting form front desk, travel desk, house keeping to security, everyone knows how to treat their guest.
Special Thanks to Chitra and house keeping staff for arranging special surprise for us as they came to know we are newly married. :)
Rooms are neat and we loved the roof top pool.

Room Tip: All rooms are good but corner rooms are bit large

Great hotel for business in Goa / Panjim. Everything works. I was impressed by the attention to detail, the training levels of the staff. Clearly someone is paying attention! Food was good too. Room service was prompt. However, they did not clear the room.

Visited Goa mid June to present a paper at a conference which was at the Marriot resort. Owing to over booking of delegates some of us speakers were shifted to this property which is nearby.

Businesslike and efficient like anywhere else. Staying here one gets no feel of Goa. However, like me many visit Goa on work and enjoy the quiet efficiency. Good buffet spread for break fast. Most rooms have no view worth mentioning but are usual Taj standard and will not disappoint the business traveler.

good property. unfortunately a drain runs near the entrance of the premises. not visible from ground but visible from top floors. Rooms are good and neat, typical Taj ambience. watch out the USB charger provided in the room may damage your phone. my nexus behaved odd when i kept it for charging using USB charger. they give complimentary pick up from airport which is quite nice considering distance from airport.

Room Tip: avoid rooms facing the front if you do not wish to see the filthy drain.
