As a travel destination India is exotic, enthralling and often exasperating. It is a huge country; the world's seventh largest in size and home of over one billion people. Geographically, India is a diverse land, ranging from the snow-capped Himalayan Mountains to arid plains, dense jungles and scenic beaches. Culturally, India is equally diverse. The ancient melds with the modern. There are 22 different official languages and over 200 dialects spoken in India. And, India is a deeply spiritual country; the center of Ayurveda, the holistic science of balancing the body, mind and spirit on all levels.
When visiting a country like India, choosing the best hotel enhances a business or leisure travel experience. Since 1903, Taj Hotels, Resorts and Palaces have been the first choice of discerning travelers to India. With 59 properties in 42 locations across India and international locations around the globe, five-star Taj properties are as delightfully diverse as the cities they share. Taj leisure hotels, Taj business hotels and Taj palace hotels and Taj wilderness sanctuary lodges offer a unique sense of place; a serene and luxurious nirvana from chaotic cityscapes.
Here is a small sample of some of India's leading Taj hotels. Guests receive royal treatment in a royal setting at Taj Lake Palace. Rising majestically from an island in the middle of the shimmering waters of Lake Pichola, the 260 year old palace, built as a royal residence, is beautifully restored with infinite attention to detail and modern comforts.
Taj View Hotel in Agra, located in view of the magnificent Taj Mahal, is an example of a Taj Leisure Hotel. Along the beaches of India, look for luxury leisure resorts like Taj Green Cove Resort, Taj Exotica and Taj Holiday Village. Whether you choose to stay in a Taj hotel, palace or lodge, expect Taj signature luxuries such as award-winning spas, cuisine from royal kitchens across India, personal butlers/concierges, comprehensive business services and exemplary children's programs.
Taj Lake Palace, Taj Mahal Palace & Tower in Mumbai and Rambagh Palace in Jaipur are recognized as three of the best hotels in the world on the Condé Nast Gold List.
