TAJ CON­NEMARA: WHERE TRA­DI­TION MEETS MODER­NITY

Marwar - - Marwar Privé -

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).
