A Place to Revitalize Body, Soul through a Blend of Therapies


Thiruvananthapuram: Nestled in the hill overlooking the famed beaches of Kovalam is Vivanta by Taj Green Cove (www.vivanta.tajhotels.com), the charming seaside and backwater resort.

A walk up the hill will take one through the winding pathways lit by quaint lamps resembling weaver bird nests. The three clusters of rooms, available in four formats, are all either sea-facing or garden-facing. The low thatched roof and the narrow stone-laid stairs and pathways add to the overall charm.

And, of course, it is the perfect setting for rejuvenating one’s weary soul and body with a reviving blend of ancient Indian wisdom and contemporary wellness therapies. “With Jiva Spa, the Taj Group’s signature spa, you undertake the journey within, through an array of enlivening holistic treatments, meaningful rituals and ceremonies for a truly calming experience,” says Mathew Thomas, General Manager, Vivanta by Taj Green Cove, Kovalam.
