The Vivanta hotel is a very nice hotel of Kerala in a very nice location, right by the beach. Very nice facilities but somehow questionable service. All staff is very nice and friendly but with little training. They say yes to every request, but you'd better check 3 times or do it yourself before it gets done... Would it be...

I recommend staying in the plunge pool villa. The rooms are excellent and the service is extraordinary. There are some great activities that you should try. Go for the kayaking in the back waters. We tried the personal barbecue by the pool. Was fantastic. The food is great at by the bay - their beach side restaurant.

It was one of our best resort experiences globally.
