Nothing compares to Taj hospitality which is why we never think twice while celebrating a milestone. We were happy to come back to the same resort 10 yrs after our honeymoon with kids in tow this time. Every small gesture counts. The familiarity, the bed decorations, the cake, the wine, personalized notes, kids toys. The list is endless. Even the buffet breakfast is unparalleled. And good idea on keeping the open buffet to a minimum and having people order from a menu. Reduces food wastage. The service at latitude was fantastic and the waiters were super attentive. Even the food was well presented.

Same can’t be said for the grill though. Which is the only disappointment we had. Pricey for the offering and the silent zone at the pool is a difficult ask in a kid friendly resort.

Still happy we chose to come back. Oh added bonus is the amazing snorkeling around the entire island, breathtaking sunsets and stingray feedings.

It’s our last day at Vivanta by Taj and we are so sad to leave!

This place defines heaven and was a perfect chilled getaway for my partner and I.

At first we had our reservations before going as we’ve travelled a lot but this is definitely in our top three favourite holidays!

As soon as we had collected our bags at the airport we were greeted by friendly informative staff, the speed boat staff were on time and great.

The staff are so kind, helpful and very attentive. They define true hospitality, we were so impressed.

The food is outstanding/waiters and bar staff were exceptional and the marine life is so cool!

We had a massage at the spa which was the best we have ever had and the boat trips were brilliant - we got to swim with turtles.

I don’t want to give too much away but there were so many little surprises which made it so fun!

House keeping were so thorough and great too!

Thank you so much to everyone for having us and to top it off we got engaged on our water villa balcony during sunset .. after it happened sting rays swam past our villa .... couldn’t be anymore perfect!

If you ever read anything negative about this place then please ignore it as it couldn’t be any further from the truth - the place is magical and definitely worth a visit.

Thanks Hayley and Scott x

The best hotel we have ever stayed at. Impeccable service, all staff (except Dave centre and water sports) were without fault. The food was unbelievable. The gardening was very well kept. Stingray feeding was fun. Sunset cruise was ok.

We stayed in water villa and it was breathtaking. Well kept. Lots of attention to detail in terms of the amenities. Postcard views from balcony. Swimming with fishes right outside our room was perfect.

Never saw a mosquito since they fume the area twice a day.

I cannot say enough good things about the resort.

Tip for anyone trying to save some money (its the most expensive place we’ve ever stayed in): half board was a great option. All inclusive is almost too much food and drink before you break even. We upgraded for one day (paying at hotel after arrival) when we got here and that was enough to sample the cocktails, and lunch but we were fine with the breakfast and dinner. Best breakfast I’ve ever had. A la Carte ordering plus Buffett to finish.

A different menu for breakfast and dinner every day and all amazing quality. Unbelievable.

Oh and the massage we had was amazing also.

Feedback for hotel to improve on: I thought it was unnecessary to charge the $8 per person per day for the life jackets. The snorkelling gear is free so it seems you have to pay to be more safe. It’s only small money so better to give for free or make snorkelling gear and life jackets $8 and it seems like a better deal.

Also, we had half board and it felt cheap to charge us $7 for a bottle of water at the table when there were 3 of the same bottles given to us daily for free in our room. Seems unnecessary.

Lastly, since we were half board there were a number of times where it wasn’t clear to us what was included and what wasn’t in the price. Maybe an extra piece of paper in the room showing the differences in a table or something between the different packages so you know what’s free and isn’t?

These small gripes are only feedback for the hotel and in no way effected our trip. 5 stars, outstanding.

The service is too expensive for what it is. The rooms in the pictures advertised set a high expectation of reality, which didn’t match. It is a small island with many activities to do BUT be warned, you MUST be at least a party of TEN or otherwise you can’t book the activity or, you are forced to pay for at least people (we were five and were forced to pay for 10, in an effort to enjoy the activities that we badly wanted to enjoy). We booked TWO water villas and were high paying customers that requested private dinners and paid for almost all the facilities offered and were NOT even given an courtesy of a late checkout time until 15:30!!!! On top of all that, the hotel tried to charges us (a party of 5) boat transfers THAT WE ALREADY PAID AT THE TIME OF BOOKING. Will never visit this resort again, piece of advise, choose a different hotel. This hotel is not accommodating to HIGH PAYING CUSTOMER’S needs and way TOO expensive for what it is.

The holiday was to celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary an also my wife's Birthday.The resort is stunning and very well maintained. The Charm villa was literally a few steps to the white sand beach.Well appointed and cleaned twice daily.The food at the Latitude Restaurant was superb worthy of at least one Michelin Star. Every staff member was welcoming and friendly .We recommend booking half board as the prices ,as at most other Islands, are on the high side.I would highly recommend this resort for its location ,stunning scenery, this really has the WOW factor,We hope to visit again in the future.

Room Tip: We stayed in 218, great position right on the sand and a few metres from the clear blue sea.
