Taj Mahal Palace voted number one hotel by five-star clients

Set in a privileged spot between the Arabian Sea and the Getaway of India, the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel has gained a reputation as one of the best holiday venues in the entire world. Proving its prestige, this stunning complex featuring top-quality service and lavish facilities was chosen as the number one hotel across India by demanding Five-Star Magazine clients.

Taj Mahal Palace voted number one hotel by five-star clients

Receiving important prizes over almost a century, the Taj Mahal Palace is one of the most beautiful and lavish properties in India. High-profile businessmen, celebrities and even maharajas (Indian royalty) have stayed within its walls and enjoyed the excellent service. This prestige simply continues to grow as Five-Star customers recently selected the Taj Mahal Palace as the number one hotel destination in India.

Clients who have consistently booked their holidays through Five-Star took a vote this year to determine the best hotel in all of India, and the Taj Mahal Palace rose as the clear winner. The hotel’s idyllic location, refined accommodations, world-class restaurants and outstanding service were some of the key factors taken into account to make the decision.

The flagship property of Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces, this hotel sits opposite the glistening Arabian Sea, only a short 6-minute walk from the Gateway of India and 3.4 km from the bustling Marine Drive. Comprising 560 rooms and 44 suites, the two buildings that make up the whole venue, the Taj Mahal Palace, and the Tower are two distinct buildings, built at different times and in different architectural designs. All accommodations feature lavish amenities including comfy beds, marble bathrooms and WiFi.

Gastronomy is another important aspect the Taj Mahal Palace prides on. With 1,500 employees, the venue’s catering department is the biggest in India and a team of 250 chefs handle in excess of 170 orders every 24 hours for just in-room dining alone. Customers are spoilt for choice with everything ranging from Asian cuisine to European fare to delectable seafood. Last but not least, first-rate service is essential to a good holiday.

Those who stay at the Presidential Suite have a total of thirteen people to assist them in their every need and desire, whilst other clients who request it also have right to attentive butler service. Taj Hotels Resort and Palaces is owned by The Indian Hotels Company (IHCL) and the hotel was re-opened on 15th August 2010 after undergoing massive renovations.

Five-Star Magazine, a multi award-winning innovative publication, concentrates on the most exquisite in luxury and ultra-luxury travel. It was first published in 2010 as a collectors’ publication in the shape of a stylish coffee table book and in 2014 the digital magazine was launched with weekly articles. According to their website the intent of the magazine is:

“ inspire, to encourage our readers to explore and appreciate the result of excellence, creativity and craftsmanship. We showcase more than exceptional businesses developing and providing services of the highest quality: we feature materialised dreams and suggest how best to experience them.”

Best hotel in all of India recognition comes after a long list of accolades, including the Best Japanese (Wasabi by Morimoto) and Chinese Restaurant (Golden Dragon) awarded by Times Foodie Guide and Favourite Business Hotel in India at the Conde Nast Traveller Readers’ Travel Awards 2014.
