Vivanta by Taj - Hari Mahal, Jodhpur
Ranked #6 of 104 Hotels in Jodhpur
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 December 2017

Just like a previous reviewer we were pleasantly surprised to be welcomed by the Manager - just as though we were VIPs. The hotel's architecture references the grander type of Rajasthan buildings. Everything is what you would expect of one of the Taj group of hotels - comfort, service, good food, and a spot of luxury.
I swam in the pool - very nice, and used the beauty salon to have my hair washed and dried - a joy after a dusty drive from Jaisalmer, and the results were excellent.

We stayed at Vivanta by Taj – Hari Mahal, Jodhpur, during Diwali Holidays in October this year.
To our surprise, We were greeted at the entrance by Mr. Vijay Shrikent, General Manager and his staff.
Mr. Vijay showed us around the property and explained us about Jodhpur, its history and culture. Taj - Hari Mahal is beautiful property built based on local architecture and culture integrating the authentic architectural heritage with modern living. We were in for another surprise as we were provided with a suggested itinerary for our stay by Mr. Gaurav Kumar, the Front Office Manager. He was very helpful and suggested us on what to do, where to do shopping, where to eat local food etc. We really enjoyed High Teas served everyday at around 4:00 PM. It introduced and served local cousine. Tea and local food was very deliciously prepared. The best part was that all restaurant managers were visible and coming to your table - be it during breakfast or in the bar. Dileep Tiwari, Restaurant Manager was always visible and personally took care of the needs of the guests. The breakfast had an excellent spread everyday and we enjoyed it throughly. Compliments to Chef Mahipal Singh and Chef Mohan for preparing excellent Omelettes. Property has a small but nice spa and therapists are good. Our driver Gajendra was very hospitable and knew Jodhpur very well. He stayed with us throughout our stay.

The best part was the Divali night. There was a huge and excellent display of fireworks and crackers on roof top and each guest participated and gave us an experience of our own youth and childhood when we enjoyed Deepavali crackers so much. All guests enjoyed a lot.

It was clear that Mr. Vijay Pratap Shrikent has trained his young team well and they are going an excellent job.
Would definitely visit Jodhpur only to stay at this property again.

We stayed one night. Not having stayed at a Taj or Vivanta property, I did not know what to expect, although I suspected it was nice. I was pleasantly surprised just how nice of a hotel it was. Beautiful lobby and public areas and service from all the staff was excellent. The room was very comfortable, well-furnished and well-maintained. Food at dinner and breakfast was very good.

I would definitely stay again in the future.

Our overall stay was good, but the hotel lacks any atmosphere. The main restaurant is quite dated and in the evening it is brightly lit. By dimming the lights it would feel more cozy. However the staff were lovely and food was very very good.

What was really annoying was that if you wanted to sit outside for dinner, they force you to eat a huge set menu. I did complain as I didn't the indoor restaurant and they allowed me to eat from the a la carte menu.

The rooms were a little dark, but traditional and well maintained. The bed was not great and the pillows need to go into a refuse bin as they were that old and flat!!

We would probably not stay at a Taj Viventa brand again, it does not compare to the other Taj group.

Location of the hotel is fine, close to the town and very cheap in a cab or rickshaw to get around.

Room Tip: upgrade to a minimum deluxe

Dear Guest,

Thank you for choosing to stay at the Vivanta by Taj – Hari Mahal, Jodhpur, and for sharing your feedback on TripAdvisor.

It was kind of you to take time out to share the experience of your visit, and we are glad that you were pleased with the services of our hotel, however we regret that we did not realize your dissatisfaction with some of our facilities, and seek to address this in the best manner possible during your stay.

It is a conscious and continuous effort on our part to seek to provide our guests with the best of services and facilities. The Vivanta Brand launched by us in 2010 was conceptualized by us through an understanding of the evolving tastes and preferences of our guests in a more stylish and contemporary manner, and we are indeed grateful to many of our guests, who like you, have been our greatest supporters in ensuring we stayed true to the promise and philosophy of the Brand and the concept. We have already commenced with the upgradation of our hotel, in a phased manner, which retains the character and essence of a palace in Rajasthan, with a contemporary style. I am confident that these will meet with the expectations that you have shared with us.

I regret that we were not able to deliver upon the sleep quality that we seek to provide our guests with, and also that our realization of these concerns did not occur during your visit, for us to address, and ensure a more comfortable and enjoyable stay for you.

I am glad that my colleagues were sensitive and responsive to your requirement to dine at our pool deck, and that you were pleased with our services and food during your stay. We truly believe that our colleagues are our true strength, and have been delighted to share your heartwarming appreciation with them.

We would look forward to another opportunity to be of service and showcase our hotel in a better manner, and to provide you with a stay reflecting the best of our hospitality, service and facilities. I would request you to let me know in this regard, so that I may facilitate the booking and personally assure myself of the arrangements for your stay.

Please do let me know of any further assistance that I may be of.


With best wishes and regards,

We were there for a whole four days. Mr. Vijay, the General Manager to Ms. Sreedevi, everyone was most solicitous and caring. A very warm Mr. Mahipal with his great meal offerings, which were fabulously appetizing. A very warm send off by Mr. Chawla from the front office with his very thoughtful present of a bag full of snacks and water for the drive back to Noida.
My only wish is that when we come next we are welcomed by the same people.
