Located in a former fishing village on the Coromandel Coast, this grand hotel makes a good base for combining business with pleasure. Today it sits in one of Chennai’s main business areas, close to Guidy and OMR (the Old Mahabalipuram Road). It is also conveniently sited for Chennai Madras International Airport (9km) and there are many major corporations and tourist attractions in the area.
Enjoy a signature massage at the Heavenly Spa, a calm space located on the second floor. You can relax into a range of treatments, including facials, deep cleanses, body scrubs and wraps, and the all-important massages.
The hotel offers various classes of room – there are 215 guest rooms and 11 suites – all of them spacious and contemporary and with specially designed beds and quality linen, rainforest shower, large flatscreen TV, DVD player, iHome docking station, wifi internet access (fee payable), work desk and minibar. Executive rooms and suites also provide extras such as a walk-in wardrobe and a plush sofa – as well as access to the Westin Executive Club Lounge, offering complimentary refreshments and free wifi. The Presidential Suite has its own love seat and an 8-person dining table.
There’s plenty to see and do when your meetings are over – everything from a dip in the hotel pool or a session at the Westin Fitness Studio to a trip to MGR Film City (Chennai is one of the leading Tamil film producers) or Guindy National Park. Or you can take a look around Kailasanath Temple or visit the saree-weavers of Kanchipuram or the fascinating Crocodile Bank. If you fancy seeing a ‘living village’, Dakshinchitra heritage village is a must.
Here you have four main dining choices: EEST for contemporary Asian cuisine – including a teppanyaki table and sushi counter – the smart Seasonal Tastes, for international dishes served overlooking the hotel’s grand water feature, cricket-themed Willows Lounge Bar, for cocktails, snacks and music, and the brand new Poolside Grill and Barbecue Lounge for relaxed plates such as kebabs and fish dishes.
