TAJ CONNEMARA: WHERE TRADITION MEETS MODERNITY
The iconic Taj Connemara has reopened after undergoing extensive renovations. The yearlong overhaul, intended at sprucing up the proud relic of the colonial era, has brought to life the heritage hotel’s historicity and colonial past, whilst offering patrons a distinctive experience through redesign and infusion of fresh and modern sensibilities. Each of the Taj Connemara’s 147 rooms and suites now exudes a colonial feel, having been appointed with elegant four-poster beds, vintage prints and objets d’art, while preservation of its Art Deco façade and interiors reflect the hotel’s original features, including wooden carvings sourced from the 16th and the 17th century temples of Mahabalipuram. The Taj Connemara dates back to 1854 and is named after Lord Connemara, the then governor of Madras (now Chennai).
