Taj Group of Hotels in India

Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces is a worldwide chain of luxury hotels and resorts. The Indian Hotels Company Limited and its subsidiaries are collectively known as Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces. A part of the Tata Group, one of India’s largest business conglomerates, Taj Hotels Resort and Palaces comprises 76 hotels, 7 palaces, 6 private islands and 12 resorts and spas, spanning 52 destinations in 12 countries across 5 continents. Jamshetji Nusserwanji Tata, founder of the Tata Group, opened the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower, the first Taj property, on December 16, 1903. He was inspired to open the grand luxury hotel after an incident involving racial discrimination at the Watson’s Hotel in Mumbai, where he was refused entry as the hotel did not permit Indians.Hotels which accepted only European guests were common across British India. Jamsetji Tata traveled to London, Paris, Berlin and Düsseldorf to get the best materials and pieces of art, furniture and interior artifacts for his hotel. Due to its prime location, traditional architecture and massive size, this hotel soon gained the status of the most iconic hotel in India.

The   Taj Mahal Palace Mumbai
Located in the historic city of Mumbai, formerly known as Bombay, the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel is an architectural landmark with a rich history. The noted Indian industrialist Jamshetji Nusserwanji Tata   commissioned the hotel at the turn of the 20th century. The bubonic plague had devastated Bombay (now Mumbai), and Tata wanted to improve the City and to establish its reputation as an important financial center.Most of the Taj Hotel was designed by an Indian architect, Sitaram Khanderao Vaidya. When Vaidya died, the British architect W.A. Chambers completed the project. With distinctive onion domes and pointed arches, the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel combined Moorish and Byzantine design with European ideas. W.A. Chambers expanded the size of the central dome, but most of the Hotel reflects Vaidya’s original plans.he Taj Mahal Palace Hotel overlooks the harbor and is adjacent to the Gateway of India, an historical memorial built between 1911 and 1924. Constructed of yellow basalt and reinforced   concrete, the grand arch borrows details from 16th century Islamic architecture.

Rambagh Palace, resplendent in all its 47 acres, was finally converted into a hotel in 1957. The Management was then entrusted to The Taj Group in 1972. The Rambagh Palace has since blossomed in to one of the finest experiences any hotel can offer.Featured in Peter Coats’ “The Most Beautiful Gardens in the World”, the gardens of Rambagh Palace Hotel are renowned for their elegance and exotic foliage.
