The company opened its first property, the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, Bombay in 1903 and completed its centenary year in 2003. Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces comprises 93 hotels in 55 locations across India with an additional 16 international hotels around the globe.
Vivanta by Taj Hotels & Resorts are designed as ideal options for the work-hard-play-hard travellers across metropolitan cities, at other commercially important centres as well as some of the best-loved vacation spots. Stylish and sophisticated, Vivanta hotels deliver premium hotel experiences with imagination, energy and efficiency.
Among the Vivanta hotels that spread all over India the one in Kumarakom is unique in many ways. The fascinating building of the hotel has a 140-year-old story to tell. Inspired by the captivating locale on the banks of the Vembanad Lake, English missionary Henry Baker built an awe inspiring colonial bungalow in the late 19th century. The bungalow still maintains the charisma and adds to the beauty of the rustic charm of the locale.
The garden here easily helps one to escape from the hustles and bustles of our hectic daily life. The renewed heritage rooms, charming cottages, luxury villas, nouvelle restaurant, refurbished bar and spa; everything is here to give one the desired levels of comfort and luxury. Innovative cuisine concepts and the specially designed meals by the chefs are another attraction of this hotel. Here, one gets the flavour of contemporary luxury, laced with cool informality and the charming hospitality.
Truly, Vivanta Kumarakom will challenge your expectations of a hotel and will unfold multiple layers of delight. The smart use of technology and the challenge to constantly engage, energize and relax you all add up to make Vivanta by Taj the new signature in hospitality. For its excellent performance in the field of hospitality Vivanta by Taj Kumarakom was honoured by Kerala Tourism with an Award of Excellence for Best Four Star Hotel in Kerala.
