This five-star high-rise offers an urban sanctuary in Coimbatore’s bustling center. The striking lobby features onyx walls, funky water sculptures and a shimmering chandelier. Take a dip in the palm-fringed outdoor lap pool or relax with a glass of bubbly at Tease, a swank cocktail bar with Italian marble floors and upholstered leather walls. The guestrooms and suites are done in soft gold and olive tones, with polished wood floors, midcentury-style furniture and slick recessed lighting. The spacious marble bathrooms come with walk-in rain showers and Forest Essentials toiletries. Hit the treadmill at the state-of-the-art gym, or ease aching muscles with an Indian aromatherapy massage at the spa. The dining options are varied: You can sample upscale Southern Indian cuisine (and enjoy the floor-to-ceiling city views) at Latitude, contemporary Chinese fare at the intimate Red Pearl, or cocktails, tapas and round-the-clock DJs at Tease. Premium Indulgence and Deluxe Allure guests enjoy the comfy confines of Rhythm–the Lounge; don’t miss the daily free cocktail hour.
In the Area
Start your adventure with a trip to the Marudhamalai Temple, just nine miles out of town. This gigantic multicolor shrine — dedicated to the Hindu god Murugan — was built in the 8th century AD. Watch out for monkeys and peacocks cavorting in the surrounding hills. For a chance to see tigers and elephants in the wild, head for the Anamalai Wildlife Sanctuary. And if you’re a fan of Indian cuisine, make a beeline for the nearby village of Palakkad, which is known for its unique style of Brahmin-influenced cooking. Your concierge will happily arrange a gourmet lunch at a private home, cooked with vegetables from the kitchen garden. The elaborate meal includes a kootan (vegetables in spicy lentil and coconut sauce), a rasam (a tangy soup) and a payasam (a coconut-based dessert).
How to Get There
We had booked a suite for our 3 day stay. The suite was awesome with a walk in closet and a big 4 piece bathroom. That was half battle won. But the turning point was when my husband fell sick in the middle of the night due to eating outside. Not only did the staff arrange for a doctor at 2am but were kind enough to get me the medicines from the pharmacy as well. Next morning listening to our tale the restaurant manager packed us some fruits and food so that we wouldn’t have to eat outside. We loved our stay here and the awesome staff made it even better. Thank you.
Check in & Check Out were very Easy & Fast , Every thing is good Specially reception , Location is Good , Inside Room is Good, View is Good , Food also Good but service team should take care from empty plates
This is the 1st time i stayed in Vivanta hotel coimbatore (considering the fact i always used to stay with taj group on my trips). The rooms, ambience are all good but the service is pathetic... I stayed there for two nights and the service issues happens on both the nights- 1) On 1st night, I ordered a soup and was delivered after 1.30 hours. I had to call them to remind that I had ordered a soup. 2) On the 2nd night, when I entered the room in the evening, to my surprise there was no water bottle kept. I called for water for which I had to wait for 2 hrs had to call them thrice. 3) For normal GST billing, i had to wait for 30 odd minutes. I am not sure which system takes 30 minutes to update the licenses.
Overall a very very bad experience.
