The last of our three stays in Vivanta establishments on this holiday. We stayed 2 nights (30th-1st Sep 2014) in sea view corner room 201 in the new building. Great location on Willington Island right on Cochin harbour. Our room was well appointed with great views. During our stay there were some very big storms which we able to watch coming in over the harbour – fantastic. On arrival there was a sizeable party leaving the resort. Unfortunately the staff failed to move them aside from the main entry which made entry very difficult for other guests. Although booking in was efficient and polite in was a bit insensitive and cold. Once we settled in to the room we took a walk around the property. As we arrived well after lunch we decided to have a quick bite in the all day Pepper eatery. We ordered what we thought were going to small meals however after 40 minutes with very few in the restaurant, our meals arrived. They were great and so big we decided not to have dinner. We ate all our meals in the Pepper. Breakfast had a good variety and we were able to have the old western favourite of bacon, egg, hash brown and tomato. Each day there is complimentary high tea followed by a complimentary 60 minute harbour cruise. On departure we received a gift packet of spices. The one problem I have with the property is that there is a cost to use the internet on the property computers. Both the Vivanta properties Connemarra and Fishermans Cove offer this service free. The staff we again courteous, efficient and most had good English. The property is well worth while and we would recommend it.

So good this is our second visit. Have nothing to complain about except the rain, here for my son's wedding so the time of year is immaterial.
