"We stayed for two nights at Vivanta by Taj Kovalam in 9 Aug 2014 the property on our family vacation and stay at this property made it more and more memorable...it has a spectacular landscape with own private beach, backwaters, nicely designed cottages, great food and simply awesome staff. It is a tourist spot in itself and you can see a nice sunrise at their beach, special dinner at their beach restaurant etc etc.. the service is really fantastic and they do everything to make your stay a very special...

Great walk to the private beach with excellent dining facilities . Clean beach - excellent choice of Kerala cruisines especially sea food . Glorious view from the room , serene , great place to spend a weekend . Helpful staff - lots of leisure options after conference. Great walk to the private beach with excellent dining facilities .

I also attended a cooking class, anchored by very polite Das of Jasmine Bay

The property is serene and I must say we thought that 2 nights was less for this property.. could not give complete justice... will surely return.. thank you to the guys at Taj Kovalam for a memorable holiday..."

Room Tip: all rooms a good rooms

We stayed here for a short getaway in July. The rooms are very comfortable and nice but this property did not match up to some of the other Taj properties we have stayed at. The service at Bait was substandard; we requested for a simple recommendation on some of the dishes and the quantity to order and what we got was a shrug with 'it depends on you'. We also found basic amenities like slippers and robes to be missing in the room and was told that these are only provided on request.

We stayed at this resort for one day and one night, celebrating our wedding anniversary. From the outset, the level of customer service received was exemplar and in line with, if not above, some of the best hotels we have stayed in around the world. Sadeeshan made us most welcome on arrival and was our guide for the first hour of our stay. Although, our room was not quite ready, we were made to feel right at home and indulged in the 'Jiva' Spa experience. Wow! Simply stunning! When we had finished in the Spa, Sadeeshan was on hand, yet again, to collect us and show us to our wonderful room ... and by gosh ... it was wonderful! We stayed in the premium temptation suite, which had its own lap pool. We didn't move from there until the early evening, after watching a stunning sunset over the Arabian Sea, from our private pool. The mini bar, and in-room dining kept the drinks flowing and the sublime tandoori chicken was a great accompaniment. In the evening, we went to the bar for a couple of drinks before our meal - again great service .. and some tunes from the DJ, specially selected by us! We ate at the Bait. Again ... wow! A buggy takes you down to a private section of the beach, where the restaurant sits magnificently aside the rolling waves of the Ocean. We were given our own special table, suitably decorated for the occasion and yes ... again, the service was wonderful. The food was simply delicious and did not dent the wallet by European standards. The evening was topped off by a wonderful cake presented to us by the team @ Bait... simply stunning! The check-out was as simple, easy and relaxed as the check-in, although now, we were leaving with a heavy heart. So all in all this was great hotel; with great views, superb facilities and a staff team that were as competent as they were simply stunning! We will be back and next time for longer and with our kids. Well done Vivanta by Taj @ Kovalam

Room Tip: You MUST go for a room with the Private pool! 403 recommended for great views.

We stayed at Vivanta Taj Kovalam for two nights along with 3 other families. We stayed at Deluxe allure villas which have the perfect mix of tradition and contemporary. The open shower is a treat.

Great service by the entire crew from the welcome to room service to the restaurant to the pool and the spa. Everyone was warm and ready to make ur stay better. They even made a surprise birthday cake for me (requested by my friends) with special table arrangement. Food was delicious and we had so much that we were finding it tough to burn between meals.

We used the spa which is truly world class.

I would only ask to have some more outdoor activities but if you are looking for just relaxation then this is the place.

will recommend for honeymooners and families
