India’s legendary The Taj Mahal Palace, a member of luxury global hospitality group The Leading Hotels of the World, has re-opened its Palace wing following an extensive two-year restoration project.
Mr Ratan Tata, Chairman of Indian Hotels Company, promised two years ago to restore The Taj Mahal Palace to its former glory – and sent a message to the world that “we can be hurt, but we cannot be knocked down”.
The iconic Mumbai landmark has welcomed maharajas and princes; presidents and world leaders; and generations of celebrities since opening in 1903 – it offers guests an unforgettable experience that encapsulates a slice of history, legend and romance.
With signature ‘Palace Butler Service’ ensuring a highly individual guest experience, The Taj Mahal Palace Club rooms, Grande Luxury rooms and themed Grande Suites in the Palace wing are each graciously appointed with original artworks, state-of-the-art technology and interactive multi-media at the touch of a button.
The Palace Lounge is a private retreat exclusively for Palace wing guests to relax over afternoon tea and evening cocktails whilst a fleet of Jaguar/ Bentley limousines will provide stylish airport transfers. Other unique and indulgent experiences for Palace wing guests include customized bath rituals.
Renovations were completed by internationally acclaimed designers Lissoni Associati Milano, BAMO Spain, LTW Design Works of Kuala Lumpur and James Park Associates, Singapore.
The restoration also included facelifts for the hotel’s acclaimed restaurants Sea Lounge, Zodiac Grill, Souk, Masala Kraft, Aquarius, Shamiana, Starboard and La Patisserie.
Also renovated is The Taj Mahal Palace Ballroom, a quintessential venue for landmark events and celebrations – renowned as the ultimate in luxury, fine dining and impeccable service.
“We are delighted to welcome The Taj Mahal Palace back to the Leading Family,” commented Mr Philip Ho, Vice President Asia Pacific for The Leading Hotels of the World in Asia.
“After a loving and painstaking restoration programme, it is an honour to be able to once again market this legendary hotel under the LHW brand.”
