Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces has announced the opening of its luxury hotel Taj Santacruz, Mumbai. Strategically located just off the Western Express Highway, the hotel is close to the city’s financial and entertainment centres as well as the domestic and international airports.
“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. The hotel captures the spirit of the city and offers curated experiences to its guests, deep rooted in its culture,” said Mr. Pankaj Sampat, General Manager, Taj Santacruz, Mumbai.
Taj Santacruz’s architecture mirrors the city’s unique sensory blend with colours and styles to reflect Mumbai within its walls. 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.”
The hotel comprises 279 rooms and suites which are among the largest in the city and blend contemporary elegance with touches of traditional Indian style. The Taj Club Rooms, located on the dedicated Taj Club Floor, are designed to meet the specific needs of the international business traveller, with a 24 hour cyber butler, high speed Wi-Fi and private check-in service. The two lavishly appointed grand suites—the Presidential Suite and Grand Luxury Suite—each have their own separate living spaces and kitchenette.
Taj Santacruz reflects Mumbai’s spirit and essence through its exceptional dining experiences. Local meets global at Tiqri, Rivea offers guests a refreshing take on the famed French and Italian Riviera palate and Enoteca offers guests a taste of exquisite table wines paired with cheese, bread and antipasti.
Designed to rejuvenate the senses, the hotel features a Beauty Salon, outdoor swimming pool and a Fitness Centre.
