Taj Coromandel, Chennai

“We are thankful to our most gracious hosts, all of the fine people who made our stay a pleasant one. We highly recommend the Taj Coromandel as certainly a world class hotel to all our friends and colleagues! We especially enjoyed our fine lunch at the Indian restaurant, who treated us to the delight of South Indian and Tamil foods. We wish our new friends here all the very best and shall return soon!”

“I must take a quick moment to express how overwhelmed I have been with the attentiveness of the staff at the Taj Krishna. On my return to the U.S. I will follow up this note and detail the individual staff that have made this the most outstanding stay in my 35 years of business and holiday travel across the globe. I have stayed in the finest Five-Star properties from Asia to Europe and North America and my experience here as a guest has set a new standard in my travels.”

Rambagh Palace, Jaipur

“At the Rambagh Palace in Jaipur, I enjoyed several dinners on a torchlit verandah while exotic dancers and musicians performed against a backdrop of fireworks celebrating a nearby wedding. I was shown to my palace suite like a visiting dignitary and was registered discreetly. The rooms range from very nice to fabulous.”

“The beautiful tropical birds are my alarm clock here at the Taj Garden Retreat - a haven nestled in the mountains near the picturesque Periyar wildlife sanctuary.”

Taj Spa at Rambagh Palace, Jaipur

“I had the most amazing massage at the Rambagh Palace when we were staying there a few weeks ago. I just got back from the trip and I am still dreaming about my massage!! It was fantastic. The therapist was wonderful. I had the massage that was a deep tissue type. I have had massages around the world and this was truly the best massage I have ever had. Thanks!”
