Taj Vivanta was the perfect choice for celebration, relaxation and an experience in the lap of nature & luxury. Its a huge, 180 acre property, with the rooms and other buildings occupying under 20% of the area and the rest is a lovely rainforest. The rooms are large and luxurious. There are enough activities to keep you occupied, with 2 swimming pools, a spa, indoor games etc. The staff is very friendly and eager to please.
