Recent guest reviews
Great hotel, unbelievable staff which helped with some oddball printing requests, great food., crazy beautiful room, and excellent little workout facility. Really nice Indian artwork stores on-site. When in Bangalore, I know where I'll be staying.
If your business or pleasure trip takes you to Bengaluru, you should book your reservation at the Vivanta by Taj in Whitefield. It is convenient to many locations, especially to ITPL, and is a secure place to rest and relax. The staff is untiringly attentive and you will be well taken care of. There is no need to leave the grounds if you are hungry as the restaurants are world-class and have variety for everyone.
Excellent Service!!!. It really exceeded my expectations. KAMAL PRASAD at the restaurant gave the best food suggestions and treated everyone as if they were the most important person. I highly recommend Vivanta for your next stay in Bangalore.
Good hotel with all we required and close to business center. A little bit far from the city to discover Bangalore after work. Restaurant is good for breakfast, lunch and diner, with occidental food (lot of choice) and Indian's one. Service is high, lot of people totally available for the client.
I stayed here three nights as part of a business trip, solo, in September. It's a very nice property and overall I'd recommend it. Details... THE GOOD --Rooms were kept in good shape --Bed was pretty comfortable --Everything in the room was kept very clean and tidy --Lobby and common spaces were excellent in appearance and format --Main/common restaurant had a good variety of food and it was all quite tasty --Staff in the restaurant and the hotel were excellent at every step, very helpful --Location is ideal if you are working in the IT park that it sits next to - you can walk to the office --Pool seemed very nice, though I did not use it --There are other terrace bars/restaurants on the property I did not visit but appeared to be quite nice THE BAD --I am not sure if it was just my room (352), but the way it is laid out it feels quite small, even though it probably isn't. The bathroom is a hallway open on both ends, cordoned off by a drop wall behind the bed. --Speaking of the bathroom layout, it is not a separate room and the toilet and shower are (frosted) glass and in view of the rest of the room, so if privacy is a need in your room then that's going to be a problem. If you're solo or with a spouse who's already seen it all, then no problem. --Pillows were all very soft and squishy - not my thing, but if it's yours, you're fine. --No fridge to use in the room - just the one that is the mini-bar and it has a tab on it for that. So you can't chill water or anything else. Overall I'd recommend it, certainly for the IT park. My criticisms are little things and most may not even apply to others. It's a very nice property and the staff, again, were just wonderful.
Hotel has assigned me to wrong room which is smoking room, so I had very serious problem with breathing 2~3 hrs at night after moving to new room. service and room condition is so so. Highly not recommneded to my colleaques.
The hotel is located pretty close to my office but so do other hotels in white field as well. The only reason I stay with Taj is because of the brand name and I usually would go with something Indian first rather then something foreign. Now coming to experience Usually TAJ's differentiator is the experience and the value it provides. In Vivanta I didn't like the experience in my morning breakfast on both occasions that I stayed here. 1. When I reached at the Resturant for BF there was no body to receive you. 2. You asked for a table, there were unkept tables here and there and the lady asked me to wait for the table to be cleaned. 3. I am waiting and another guest comes in , she takes him to another table and immediately got it cleaned. I am still waiting and watching. 4. After she confirms its clean I start having my BF asked the lady to help me with a black tea. 5. In the mean time I use the napkin and found it too untidy to be used and marked with the stains of earlier use. 6. I am finished with my breakfast and stop the same lady for my tea as she is taking a tea for somebody else. 7. After waiting 15 minutes for tea finally I get one. This is the only TAJ Vivanta I have stayed , I have stayed in Gateway, Lands end , Mahal etc. All of their services are way too good to what you provide. Either get your teams trained in hospitality or close this hotel as its giving bad name to TAJ brand.
Great place to stay if you are visiting ITBP. Very comfortable, great food and the staff are lovely . Easily accessible for airport and key areas in Bangalore. Has a good gym and if you get any down time the spa is great
This hotel was top notch, without a doubt. I would definetly visit this hotel again when visiting India. Good service, clean rooms and great hospitality by the staff. The food was delicious and good..
5 stars hotel with all the equipment and confort that we can expect. Good and diversified food nearly 24/7. Perfect location for a business trip in one of ITPB groups but far away from city center or must-see places if you are here for leisure.
