I could not have asked for a better experience. Considering my longer duration of stay I wanted the best option for my first Vizag stay. I did not get confused much. Everything from the time you arrive, Novotel is a well orchestrated symphony of luxury. The staff members taking care of every little detail. The hotel nailed the musical experience and the rooms beautifuly designed and very well kept. The never ending beach view merged with infinity pool is awsome. You will automatically become fitness enthusiasts seeing the Gym and swimming pool. It is clear that they are working hard to maintain the best place in Vizag. My stay is for 14 nights over here and I couldn’t find fault even if I wanted to even after 7th day of my stay (I am forced to write this review while staying over here because I don't want to regret later on, why did I waited for so long to appreciate the stay) The staff here are exceptionally helpful with great service. It's surprising that I know half of them by name and they all are so active that they never let your glass or your plate to be empty. It's injustice from my side if I don't mention their names to compliment their hard work and dedication. I know I may miss out lots of names behind the curtain. Mr Madhu, Mr Azar, Miss Rosey, Miss Shilpa : thank you very much for your great service. More than that I adore your attitude and passion. Keep the best smile on your face as you guys always do. It's always a pleasure for me to be a part of the hotel during the 50th year celebration, men's day celebrations, ladies night and Wednesday night celebrations. All the events are conducted with its own charm and you will love the way they are organised. I am pretty sure you will never forget the stay over here.
During my first visit I gave this hotel a 4 star hoping for improvements, but it just got worst. And I see a lot of promises in the management's anwers to the reviews, but no improvements at all. Just like another traveler wrote, this hotel does not feel like a Novotel, it feels like an owner- driven hotel, someone who cares more about big parties and "important" guests than the regular, business guests that need some peace. I just wish I could withdraw my initial review; I recently stayed at the Waldorf-Astoria, a real 5-star hotel in Shanghai; there is no comparison. This hotel's management could benefit from staying there and learning how a 5-star hotel is managed. The only reason I still would consider this hotel a 4-star is for the rooms, they are nice and comfortable. Although some of the staff is very good, some don't seem to pay attention to what they are doing. The lounge no longer has a coffee machine, so I have to wait for the staff to get the coffee downstairs. The staff at the lounge tries really hard given the limitations they face. Regarding the food, there is not much improvement there either. Although there are some dishes I like, there are plenty of bad choices too. I order overeasy eggs, but lately just get overcooked eggs every single time, and today, the freshly squeezed orange juice tasted like onions. They seem to use the same juicer for both. What bothers me the most about this hotel lately is how busy and noisy it is most of the time, with very rude guests speaking loudly in the corridors at any hour of the night or morning. And the noisy parties by the poolside is another thing; right now there is some party going on with loud, annoying non-stopping drums. This is the last drop; it's not worth staying here for the view.
Great location, however, maintenance could be better. The food served was not of the expected standards. It left much to be taken care of. Was unimaginative. The staff was good, especially Tatan Naidu. Had good fun walking along the sea shore, on which the hotel is located.
We stayed at Novotel Vizag last weekend and it has been a great experience. There was a Children’s day special and cake mixing event. Special mention for Chef Narasayya (he was awesome in suggesting and prepping customised food for us) and the waiting staff (James, Rosy), you guys took really good care of us by and our 20m old😃. Thank you !!
Another evening, another Dinner as always at The Square with friends. Chef Narsayya was the highlight of the evening. The dishes were amazing, specially the starters Water Chestnut & the Malai Brocolli, very well cooked & served. Also, the main course was made with a lot of heart. We had a great evening thanks to Chef Narsayya again. We look forward to today’s new dinner as well - Mom’s Bday. Thanks & Regards / Vikash

We had booked our holiday here as it is situated right on the beach front. The visit began with an efficient airport pickup and a quick check-in. Our room on the 7th floor was comfortable with a superb view of the sea. Daylight breaks pretty early in Vizag and it is bright and cheerful at 6 am. A walk down the beach road is really nice. I also went up to the rooftop to catch the sunrise and the view was awesome. The hotel staff is efficient and helpful, food at the coffee shop was good, though a few Indian dishes were very hot (I guess food in Vizag is a tad spicy and hot). The hotel is located near the Submarine Museum, that's open from 2pm to 8pm, and is worth a visit. Well, a quiet, uneventful holiday was what we desired and that's what we got!
Food is really good and amazing. And special thanks to chef Mr. Narsaya. For making our evening so special. Best fine dinning in vizag.my friends and myself had a wonderful stay and enjoyed a lot.tganks to ram also for making are stay so convenient. Thank you Novotel Vizag
