The Bay View Restaurant could do with some pedestal fans like they have in the Upper Deck. We invited 7 of our friends for lunch and it was so hot that it wasn't a pleasant experience for us and we had to retest to the cottage.
fabulous break at Fisherman's Cove”
excellent! the front desk manager, Ms Khushi was extremely hospitable and accomodating- we reached earlier than the required check in time, tired and sleepy from a long international flight, expecting to wait a few hours before we could unwind. we were assigned a room quite soon and also given an upgrade (as the one available immediately was in a higher category!). Started of the short stay on an extremely positive note-reinforced by the lovely beach and pool followed by an excellent dinner with personalized service by the restaurant manager of the Seagull outlet. All in all, most enjoyable stay and highly recommended break!
NICE WAY TO RELAX”
Our second of three stays in Vivanta establishments on this holiday. Our visit followed immediately on from our stay at the Vivanta by Taj Connemarra Chennai. We stayed 2 nights (19-21st Aug 2014) in superior charm sea view room 214. Great reception when we arrived at the resort. Being a little hot and bothered I found the attention from what seemed like several people at once to be a bit over bearing. However that passed and we were shown to our room. Great view out to the pool and to the Bay of Bengal. Once we were settled in our room we decided to take a look at the property. Luckily we were taken on a buggy ride around property as it is a huge 40 acres. Later that day we were offered high tea in the library. Although there are three restaurants we ate our two evening meals at that the Seagull all day diner. There were ample meal varieties to choose from and the food was good. Our meals cost INR2200 or $AUD45. The pool was large and appeared clean however there was algae around the sides of the pool. This is not good and can be dangerous – it should be corrected as soon as possible. On our departure we received a gift of a carved stone elephant – a nice touch. All the staff are courteous, efficient and have good English. It is hard to compare this resort with the Connemarra as they are situated in totally different environments. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend the resort.
Facing the beach, lovely place”
The hotel upgraded our room. The new buildin is well designed with bath tub. There is a peaceful palm tree garden in front. You can not swim in the sea but nice to relax by the beach. On Sat hand craft were demonstrating and selling the their lovely work.
Price quality ratio under pressure”
The resort is beautiful, the pool is great. The beach is not private any more for some reason, and less clean/secure as during my earlier visit. The rate for a room with non-sea view (and advertised without 28% added taxes) is actually to high, certainly for solo traveling. The food in the Seafood restaurant is wonderful, and reasonable in price, though the wine is very expensive. In fact, I had the most expensive glass of wine (INR 2200) of my life here. It was a Sauternes of a lesser known brand. Good wine, but no where near worth that amount of money. My risk of course, but let's get real.
"TAJ" Hospitality At It's Best!!”
The service was outstanding! The entire property was well maintained & guarded. The top notch of our stay was about the very friendly staff & cozy environment. To mention in particular, a staff named 'Binitha' made our stay a lifetime memorable one. There was a surprise wedding anniversary cake, which enlightened our day!! She ensured our stay was at it's best. Finally TAJ stands for it Name!! Quality & Service!! Kudos to entire team of Vivanta by Taj - Fisherman's Cove!!
Deluxe Rooms were a cut above”
This is our second trip here, and tihs time we chose the new deluxe rooms after the Bay View Restaurant. The ambience and facilities were extraordinary. Every little detail is taken care of. Would definitely like to visit again.
Dont think twice..just go there!!”
Spacious room, clean pool, friendly staff ready to workout anything for you so you have a pleasant stay, lovely breakfast. Make sure you go to the beach to see the sunrise. Ask for Jobin or Binitha, they will take care of you!
Fun Times at the Taj”
We stayed there for 2 nights, the view was spectacular and the services were amazing. People visiting this resort must definitely enjoy the massage services from JIVA spa one of the best (little expensive). There food menu is best for people who eat seafood and meat. We eat vegetarian, so the options were limited. The breakfast buffet was marvelous and impressive. Great place to get some peace of mind.
Good. Many activities were on de paper, but not there. Atv& others were not there. Children activities were also not there. It used to be there 2yrs back. Its now just like a hotel withno specialities to make it a resort
Luxurious stay and awesome restaurants”
Simply awesome! We went with our 1.5 year old and the staff were extremely generous with their time to help us have a very pleasant and memorable stay. The weather was an unforeseen plus that made the trip much more enjoyable. Food in each of the restaurants is something that needs to be experienced and for that one would need to stay for a couple of days (if possible over the weekend). Will definitely go back.
lovely quiet resort”
Very relaxing. We had a seafront cottage. Highly recommended. Great accommodation and fantastic outdoor shower. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would be nice to have another restaurant choice. Good location between busy Chennai and magical Mahabalipuram.
My daughter was ill with a high fever, etc while we were at Vivanta and the staff were exceedingly helpful and caring. They arranged for a doctor and ensured my daughter was as comfortable as possible given the circumstances. In addition to the exceptional service, the property is lovely, the food very good, and the spa exceptional. I would definitely stay again.
fishermen cove - taj vivanta ”
relaxing, memorable one with vivanta taj, great location, clean beach, excellent service. dont miss to walk upto left extreme boundary, it is a very rare scene of sea water adjoining with back water. almost something similar to baga river. ( mutukadu back water stream) Ideal for short break. family planning to visit mahabalipuram is not a good option. Shell shaped sea view cottages are good. other rooms are normal. Drink options are less. Food is slighlty pricy, beverages are ok. Otherwise the property is little old, yet contemprory. Good to take a brief break.
staff go the extra mile”
Excellent, even though the property is dated, the service and guest attention made up completely. The modern wing needs some heart...even though the rooms are contemporary fantastic, lack of activity makes it too cold and needs some warmth...
THe Most relaxing place in India”
From the moment you arrive at the Taj its clear its something very special. An Oasis of calm just off the busy East Coast Road. Clean, spacious, good long beach walks, secure, caring. Ive been lots of times and will return many more.
Nice stay in beach resort”
We had a nice stay in the resort. It is fairly close to the tempels of Mahabalipuram (have the hotel call a meter taxi, much more affordable compared to hotel transport). The rooms are kept clean and offer good comfort. Hotel staff is very very friendly and Always willing to help in case of any needs. The beach near the resort was great, clean sand and nice beach chairs to lay down on. One downside is the price of hotel transport. Prices of airport drop off is way overpriced (almost twice as much as some other resorts charge for even better cars).
stay at the Vivanta Taj was an encrdible enperienc”
i would recommend this hotel to anyone who want to get away from the rush and busy streets of Chennai,the beach and the location is soo beautiful and peaceful , it is abt 40 mins away from airport but worth the drive .Absolutely enjoyed my stay thoruoghly!! Thank u for recommending this hotel to me.
Professional staff, lovely location, lovely food”
Having rolled about for 6 days in mainly disappointing hotels, we really struggled with mosquitoes, despite having brought our electric racket, and therefore had very little sleep. The price we paid was still very steep for a sleepless night, the owners need to recognise this and do more than burn a couple of Mozzie sticks when you arrive. Our main activity was to zap mosquitoes. The music in the indoor restaurant was awful, we had to ask for it to be turned off, it was electronic aggressive rubbish out of keeping with the property and not what you expect to endure after a 5 hour drive on Indian roads. There was loud music on the villa side of the property in the evening, but that didn't last long, and the hundreds of crows do eventually go to sleep after a Hitchockian hour and a half! The food was lovely, even for the children, as usually they end up with limp French fries and pizza, Vivanta really make an effort on the menu and that was greatly appreciated. The breakfast spread is excellent and fast, even in a busy wave. Staff is attentive and professional, our additional bed arrived swiftly, we were offered pineapple by the poolside and the lifeguard on the beach acknowledged our presence immediately. The pool was very pleasant, with a shallow area and a slanted side for smaller babies who can sit and splash around We loved our stay, just the mosquitoes need to be addressed. It isn't hard to use citronella oil, especially in the restaurant and as infusers on sticks on the room, out of the reach of children, or directly rubbed onto the wooden furniture, out of sight
Lovely Villa with beautiful and quiet location”
Excellent food! Enjoyed eating al fresco in front of Bengal Bay, the only downside was the difficulty of booking at the spa ! I tried booking but was unable to acquire a booking and complained which did the trick.
