Taj Mahal Hotel, the crown jewel of our national capital, is set to present itself in an all-new avatar. With the patronage this property has already garnered in the past—Prince Charles, the Dalai Lama—the renovations are going to attract guests, old and new.
Architect David Edwards of Aston Designs has executed the redesign, retaining elements from India’s rich architectural heritage. Details of Lutyens columns and traditional art put forward in a contemporary style adorns the walls of the aesthetically renovated suites and rooms, with some of the best views central Delhi has to offer. Early 2022 should see the completion of this project; for now, the elaborate hospitality of certain renovated sections is open to patrons.
Witness the Change of Guard Ceremony at the President’s residence. Special excursions to experience this tradition are organised by the property.
Things to do
Due to the hotel’s central location, there’s no dearth of activities. Activities at the hotel include a spa, gym, dining at signature restaurants—Varq and Machan, a swim at the pool (reopening soon), cocktail hour at Rick’s, and Sunday Brunch at the Poolside Lawns.
