Wonderful. We'll be back soon
We loved our stay here. The location is beautiful, the service is quintessentially Taj. Smiling, efficient and consistent. The food was par excellence. Our only request would be to keep the activity center open till 7.30 or 8pm so we can enjoy a cocktail or two.

A delightful stay overall...
A very pleasant & delightful stay as always at this wonderful property. Love the ambience, the views of the harbour & the buzz generated on the busy waterway. Spotted dolphins too not too far away from the hotel shores. Great food & staff waiting to delight you!

Enjoyable holiday
Vivanta Taj like the other Taj hotels lives up to its reputation of the wonderful Taj hospitality. The staff are very attentive to the needs of the guests and the property is well maintained.The river view from the hotel is enchanting. It is situated on the Willingdon Island and is away from the tourist hustle and bustle but comuting does pose a problem during rush hours. The buffet breakfast was very good and caters to different tastes,and the dinner that we ordered thru room service was excellent. They organise a nice evening tea on the lawns before the river cruise and serve interesting snacks. Infact as we had a early morning flight, they were kind enough to give us a lovely packed breakfast. All in all we had a lovely stay and would recommend it to discerning travelers.

A definite place to stay in Kochi.
This stay at Taj Vivanta Kochi was my 5th hotel of my 4 weeks round India work. It was the best hotel overall - across every key parameter. From welcome to departure was excellent. Chef and bar staff went out of their way to provide a range of snacks and food not on the menu -mix and match dishes if one could not eat the full normal portion (which I find impossible to finish even half). Overall, the ambience, the place, staff and service deserves very high ranking even amongst their own chain. We wished we had two more days in our schedule just to chill at this place. Dr Peter Patel - just for my friends who travel like me for work.

Good 6.0
Not-so-good.
Not-so-good. I had expected great things from this hotel so perhaps my judgment is jaundiced by disappointment. My room was supposed to be a Sea View but from my 2nd floor room on the corner all I could see was a sliver of sea and mostly red tiled rooftops. Room was fine but smelled musty and the air conditioning was far too cold. I called for assistance but their troubleshooting didn't really help. I just turned it off until it got to hot then turned it on again until it got too cold....not great in the middle of the night. Its a classic hotel in a great location and I'm sure that some rooms are really great. Mine was not.

Hotel was lovely but the staff made the place extra special. The hotel offered several perks such as daily ferry to Kochi Fort & an evening boat ride which was an unexpected addition. The breakfast was the best we had in India and the restaurants were great too (loved the Keralan prawn curry at the rice boat). The staff were excellent and really made us feel welcome but a special shout is required for the bar & pool staff. I felt like they got to know us in such a short space of time. Will be back when we return to Kerala.
