The travel industry is now celebrating the most recent opening from this iconic hotel brand.
Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces can now celebrate the opening of its luxury hotel Taj Santacruz, Mumbai. Strategically located just off the Western Express Highway, the hotel offers a vantage point of access, with proximity to the city’s financial and entertainment centres. The newest addition in Taj’s home city, and the fourth group hotel in the financial capital, Taj Santacruz is a tribute to this historic city and its pulsating cosmopolitan spirit.
“We are delighted to extend the legendary Taj hospitality with the opening of Taj Santacruz in Mumbai – with its distinctive design, spacious rooms and warm service, Taj Santacruz is a luxurious new addition that is symbolic of the cultural melting pot that is quintessentially Mumbai,” said Mr. Pankaj Sampat, General Manager, Taj Santacruz, Mumba. “The hotel captures the spirit of the city and offers curated experiences to its guests, deep rooted in its culture.”
Mumbai is a smorgasbord of cuisines, languages, art, cinema and festivals. Taj Santacruz’s architecture mirrors this unique sensory blend with colours and styles to reflect Mumbai within its walls. The soft references to Art Deco pay homage to the historical architecture of south Mumbai while maintaining the trademark Taj elegance. The chandeliers in the double height lobby give a modern edge to the city’s European legacy. Jali-esque pattern, layering and colour – all integral to the Indian design ethic – give Indian overtones to the contemporary styling. Throughout the hotel, paintings and traditional sculptures by Indian artists provide local accents to reception spaces.
Farhat Jamal, Senior Vice President – Operations (West-India) & Africa, Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces, said: “Taj Santacruz will set a benchmark for luxury in North Mumbai, with its unparalleled Taj service, elegantly appointed rooms and contemporary restaurants. It will be an oasis for business and leisure travellers alike. It is the new jewel in the Taj crown.”
With the domestic and international airports in its vicinity and being minutes away from the city’s new shopping, business and dining hubs, Taj Santacruz is the perfect spot for fly-in fly-out meetings, conferences and events, as well as travelers looking for a central place to stay in Mumbai. With flexible business offerings, hotel offers indoor and outdoor locations perfect for business conferences and private functions.
