Named after the vast stretch of coastline on which it sits, the Taj Coromandel is a slice of five-star luxury in bustling Chennai. Set in the heart of the business and commercial district, this landmark building has hosted US presidents and European royalty, and is a destination for those seeking quality amid the numerous hotel options. Its position just 17km from the international airport makes it a convenient base for business trips or relaxing leisure stays.
Supremely comfortable, the high-end suites here have wowed a roll-call of VIPs and celebrities over the years. Some of those may have enjoyed the Presidential Suite’s Jacuzzi and fresh flowers. Yet right across the 212 well-appointed rooms there’s the same impeccable attention to detail. Stylish and spacious they are rendered in neutral colours with carved wood furniture, lounge chairs and writing desks. Generous marble bathrooms come with a deep tub, separate shower and illuminated make-up mirror.
With its discreet butler service and concierge to take care of your every whim, enjoying your free time could not be made any easier. A beauty salon, fitness centre with sauna and steam room and outdoor pool mean you’ll stay in top shape during your stay, while a boutique selling, among others, pashminas, shawls and saris, will satisfy your shopping cravings. Everything from ancient temples to street food and traditional dance shows await beyond your doorstep, as well as malls, cinemas and Chennai’s ever-growing nightlife scene.
Experienced chefs man the stoves at the hotel’s three top restaurants, and whichever you choose you can expect an array of cuisines and world-class wines. Prego offers gastronomic delights from Italy; Southern Spice serves up dishes from the four southern states of India; and Golden Dragon brings delectable Chinese cooking to the fore. In addition, whether you’re having a lunchtime meeting or dropping in for a casual dinner you can rely on the trusted global menu at Anise, the hotel’s all-day dining spot.
