I am so overwhelmed by the entire experience at Vivanta by Taj Coral Reef. From the welcome to our departure it was awesome and absolutely breathtaking. I spent a few days celebrating my 50th birthday with my family and it was everything and more than I ever imagined. A special thank you to Brij, Chef Arun, Carmin, Pastry Chef, Dr Elveera and the housekeeping staff as your hospitality and attentiveness is beyond words and befits more of a 5 star. There is not one little aspect that was negative and I would for sure visit again. The most memorable experience I have ever had, We booked at the water villas and it was out of this world experience. A big thank you to Prasanth for the snorkelling experience
Amazing, is the word that describes our holiday in Maldives. Yes, the place is simply awesome, no doubts about it. However what made it even more wonderful is the awesome property Taj Vivanta. Right from the pickup from the airport to our see off at the end of the stay was simply outstanding. We had split our stay there equally into the beach villas and the water villas. Although both were good, but we liked the water villas much more as you get an unhindered view of the sea from your room, plus you just needed to walk down the steps and you were in the lovely blue waters. The beach villas open straight into the white sands of the beach. Most people stay in both to get the best of both world. The staff was very cordial as well as friendly and the food variety was great, you had the option of Indian, South American, Srilankan and many other cuisine besides the maldivian cuisine.We had very good interactions with the chefs there and they really made you feel special and took special care of you. But this is not at all surprising as they have a wonderful leader in their GM, Mr Samir Khanna to show them the way. We were completely bowled over by this gentleman. His humility, pleasant demeanour and the warm hospitality is something to emulate, for sure. Incidentally my husband's birthday was spent there and they really did their best to make it special- from a beautifully decorated room to cakes and special arrangement for dinner. We were overwhelmed. There were plenty of things to keep one occupied- snorkelling, diving, sunset cruise, stingray feeding, just to name a few. A ride to the Blue Lagoon stands out in our memory for the majestic white sands and the out of the world colors of the water. A must do. We went twice !!!! Overall a great holiday in a beautiful country and at an awesome property.
My wife and I stayed here for over a week in water bungalow No. 105. It is a splendid hotel and really captures the beauty of the Maldives. There are three house reefs, a diving center, excellent food, relaxed pool side to laze in etc. By any measure, it 5 star deluxe hospitality served to you in a relaxed yet luxurious manner. The hotel offers a very good all inclusive package which is worth going for. This includes almost all foods and drinks for a lumpsum one time fee. It also includes the minibar which is replenished thrice a day. Its the minute details that the hotels pays attention to which really makes it worth while.They even offer complimentary snorkeling equipment on arrival. All in all, we had a great stay and we have no regrets. The accommodation, food, drinks, staff and service is impeccable. The white side sand beach on the opposite side of the island resort is pristine. Be prepared to return from this place with a tan. We will definitely visit again.
Just got back from a week here and feeling very relaxed and chilled. This is a real 'get off the world' place. The staff were all very hospitable, friendly, relaxed and helpful and we felt very welcome and special. Particular thanks to Brij, Hussain and Aviv although it seems unfair to single anyone out as everyone was lovely. We went for the all inclusive option which I'd definitely recommend as it was great value. We were very impressed with both the quality of the food and the variety of dishes. The wines were also great. Many thanks to all at Vivanta! Barbara
Everything from Pick up to the hotel arrival to the food and to the amenities...was inch perfect.I have become fan of the hotel staff where everyone does all work despite being GM or Head Chef or F & B Manager....their all goal is Customer Satisfaction where they give genuinely more than 100%.You would do well and let me know if any of the potential customer wants to speak to me ...i can go a long way
It was an amazing experience. The hospitality of Taj is amazing with unforgettable memories. People at the resort serving you are great hosts. They know how to make you feel special. They are always there to greet you, take care of your needs and so on. Especially if you are Indian, you should consider visiting Taj.
Best resort I've ever visited in my life . From the day we were welcomed and till the time we left , everyone is like so humble , smiling and courteous , can only expect from Taj hotels only. Thanks to entire team for a wonderful hospitality given to me and my family. Three Cheers 🙏🏻🙏🏻
In one Word: AMAZING! Concerning all Points of Interest: Nature, Rooms, Service, Food, Crew, Environment. We enjoyed our Stay so much! This Experience combined with the warm hearted Atmosphere of the Resort and the excellent 24/7-Service was one of the best in our Lives - far beyond compare!! Every single Person of the Crew, regardless job and position, is unique and made our Holidays @Vivanta Taj one of the bests in our entire Lives. We can definitely recommend this Resort to ohers, same as, for sure, we'll be coming back soon!
This was our second holiday at Vivanta. Since our last visit I spent a lot of time trying to find somewhere else in the Maldives that could better the experience we had last year....and failed. We prefer a small resort that allows you to just chill out and enjoy the piece and quiet and that is what you get here. Unfortunately, we caught the tail end of a cyclone when we arrived so had a couple of days without any sun, but far from spoiling the holiday it actually enhanced it as we spent the time in the main bar on the big comfy chairs, catching up with all the little on-line (free wi-fi everywhere) things that you just don't seem to have the time to do at home. Needless to say the odd drink or two were consumed - especially after the excellent Kannan (Bar Supervisor) came up with a Baileys/vodka/lychee liqueur for my wife! It is interesting to note that we both agreed that the lack of a couple of days of sun wasn't a big deal - it is the resort that makes the holiday. We took the all-inclusive package (booked directly with the resort and much cheaper than via travel agents - even those advertising '40% off') so didn't have to worry about the high cost of eating. My wife took photographs of the menus to show friends the wonderful choices and many of them commented on the prices - but I understand that they are on a par with other the other resorts in the Maldives. The food itself was excellent, although you need to understand that many of the dishes are Indian or local Maldivian and can be a little on the spicy side. Having said that, Head Chief Arun's staff will prepare your food to your liking and Food and Beverage Manager, Brij, will do everything to make sure you enjoy every single mouthful. We stayed in one of the over-water villas which give you privacy as well as being able to walk down into the sea from your deck. On the deck there is also a shower - ideal for rinsing off after some snorkelling. There may be resorts with better rooms, there may be resorts with better beaches, there may be resorts with better reefs, but I defy anyone to find a resort with better staff. Throughout, from Manager Samir Khanna down, the staff were outstanding. It seems a little unfair to pick out individuals, but along with the aforementioned Arun, Brij and Kannan, we received excellent service from Shahid (bar), Oli (table service) Savaath (table service with special distinction from my wife for tea making!) and Saah, who kept our room spotless and tidy and delighted my wife with his flower pictures on the bed. As I said, it is unfair to pick out individuals but it is just not possible to mention everyone. The reception team, the front of house girls at the restaurant, the gardeners. They all play their part. There is no doubt that we will be returning next year to this perfect place.
VIVANTA was the perfect place that my wife and I chose to celebrate 40 years of marriage. A true paradise, with staff dedicated and very friendly. There are also and many attractions to the guests. It is the ideal place for the people that wish to escape from the big cities and relax in the amazing waters of Maldives.
