      My wife and I travelled with my sister and we booked two superior full sea view rooms. There are spectacular views from the rooms. This hotel is the best we have ever stayed at anywhere in the world. We have stayed at several Taj properties but this one stands out for its superb and pampering service,excellent cusine, and a great locaion for exploring the Cochin area. Only a few minutes walk to the ferry piers for Fort Kochi and Ernakulam. Every evening, the hotel provides a complementary tea service followed by a cruise of Fort Kochi and the harbour area. On our departure day, the entire front desk, and housekeeping and restaurant manager were there to see us off at the front door. The hotel has a very competent travel desk that can provide english speaking drivers in a comfortable vehicle to explore the area or to transfer you to and from the airport. We will be definitely stay there again.

      I have to state strongly that our stay at the taj vivanta was one of the most memorable hotel experiences I have ever had....the facilities, beautiful details in decor, fresh flowers etc was truly lovely , the most outstanding thing you can be proud of is your staff and service.....I Have never been treated so well in any other place..we were welcomed in the most friendly and hospitable way, seated comfortably upon arrival, given a most refreshing lemony mint drink,we did not have to go up the desk, but instead brought the registration material personally, and lead by the nicest hostess to our room...though we were only able to stay one night because of a boat tour we had booked we were bale to leave our bags there until after we returned..we were quite weary and headed on our long journey home, the hotel kindly offered us a room to shower and freshen up, and sent us off refreshed and relaxed...the staff and service was not only impeccable but made us feel more pampered than I have ever felt anywhere...thank you so much!!

      I have absolutely no complaints about my stay, it far surpassed my expectations....!!! Two comments I might reveal: i did get a smoking room (where i had asked for the preference of non-smoking), but this said the room did not smell of smoke ( i have asthma and am quite sensitive), i had no problems, the air was clean, room was fresh and clean, and this raised no issues with me. i found areas of the hotel to be quite "fragrant" with air freshing, maybe sometimes too strong? while pleasant, i am particularily sensitive because of respiratory issues? still i emphasize my stay was excellent!

      Amazing service, beautiful hotel and scenery.

      A little removed from other things - although fort cochin is a stone throws away, the walk to the jetty is short but probably not the safest for a solo traveler.

    • 9.6
      Perfect

      The care everybody gave us.

      Nothing to do with the hotel, but the area around. A lot of garbage in the water around. A clean up at a regular basis would have given a better impression

      Great

      Thoughtful staff: complimentary birthday cake delivered to room without request, and complimentary gifts Warm welcome and farewell and complimentary room upgrade to room with very nice view. Good range of activities on offer, including complimentary boat rides and afternoon teas.

      Last-minute bookings seem to be very expensive (£250 per night)

      The staff are friendly and are very helpful as they are always at a Taj hotel. The pool area is great & the spa facilities are good.

      My only complaint would be the noise from some of the ships going past - sounding their horns early in the morning which would wake me up.

      Great

      Excellent chain in all respects.

      Didn't realise you cannot swim in the sea. Which is just as well as the position is on a backwater and it was unbelievably filthy - you wouldn't believe what floated by the hotel on a daily basis. Also, didn't realise it is situated in a quite an industrial area with views over to cranes and docks. However, a great position if you want to visit Fort Kochi.
