Not really a Taj standard property on the service front- badly planned 'New Wing' services. The main block room offerred appeared shoddy. the'upgrade' was a better room located what seemed a mile away. buggies took time

This is the best beach resorts in Chennai and my family and I have been going here for decades. If you get a room try to upgrade to the Villas on the beach. They have both Sea-facing Villas and Garden Villas but both are awesome.

Good place to spend your weekend. Beautiful resort and good food. The music in the bar is fantastic. A nice kids area for play and other kids activities. Near mayajall in case one wants to catch a movie. Good ambience. The only improvement is afternoon buffet. While the spread is fine, may be service quality is low. Could also be...

25 of us, schoolmates, met for a reunion after 31 years. We chose Taj Vivanta, Fishermans cove for its spacious and beautiful location. Sadly, Chennai was affected badly by the rains a week before our stay. Despite the difficult conditions, the resort was fully operational and spic and span. We had the traditional welcome, lovely lunch, dinner and breakfast. They...

Never in India you could see the courteous behaviour of the entire staff of the hotelBeats easily many of the hotels outside India in service and value for money. If you could ask for a good 5 star hotel, this is it, Unbeatable.Hope the tradition, quality and service of Taj is maintained

Best place if you want to feel relaxed and enjoy the beach. Quality at its best, staff is polite and courteous. I've ordered in-room dining food was excellent too. I'd love to visit again whenever possible to this amazing place but would like to choose a resort type stay than a floor.
