Taj Hotels Palaces Resorts Safaris open the Taj Swarna in Amritsar, India
April 3, 2017: Indian hospitality brand, Taj Hotels Palaces Resorts Safaris, announced the opening of Taj Swarna, Amritsar, the group’s first hotel in the tier-II city, located approximately 30 minutes from both the international airport and the sacred Sikh shrine of Shri Harmandir Sahib.
While Amritsar is best known for its history, its future is also fascinating. To the north of the ancient walled old city, ‘new’ Amritsar has exploded out along wide boulevards of a bygone era. Laid in Basant Avenue, the hotel is ideally located for travellers to explore Amritsar’s sights. The hotel has a stunning contemporary design which reflects not just the refinement of old spiritual Amritsar, but also the cutting-edge modernity of the new city with its contemporary art and clean lines.
The hotel comprises 148 luxurious rooms and nine suites, including a lavish Presidential Suite. Its rooms fuse contemporary sophistication and traditional Indian opulence with subtle charm. The modular design of rooms merge with chic textured furnishings to create personalized luxury. Verdant lawns offer an expansive outdoor entertaining space with over 5000 sq. ft. along with a banquet hall of 7000 sq. ft., ideal for meetings, corporate events and weddings, all at a convenient distance from the Golden Temple.
At Taj Swarna, Amritsar, three restaurants offer diverse dining experiences. Casual neighbourhood all-day diner Grand Trunk is an elegant space that offers contemporary luxury with an à la carte menu that ranges from international classics of the World of Taj, authentic mouth-watering Amritsar cuisine, to the familiar warmth of comfort food. The Chinese Room delights with flavours from the kitchens of Beijing, the fiery zest of the Sichuan province as well as the familiar comfort of Cantonese fare. The Bar and Lounge introduces several single malts and the best of wines from around the world that will cater to the tastes of its discerning guests.
The hotel is home to Taj’s very own Jiva Spa and Salon, which offers treatments that draw inspiration from the ancient wellness heritage of India and healing therapies that embrace Indian spirituality.
