This has been my favourite hotel ever since I was a kid. The most amazing thing about the West End is how it continues to reinvent itself yet retains that old world garden charm. Every block of this hotel has its own unique charm and the lush greenery all over gives it an absolutely lovely feel. Just the fact that... More

I'm staying in the Taj West End this week and to be honest I'm disappointed - but not really about the hotel itself. The Vietnamese restaurant is excellent (the head chef in the hotel is fab!) and the staff are all polite and friendly. The gardens are as beautiful as you'd hope (as are the pools!) and the first couple... More

I am finding this review particularly difficult to write. I found the service at the hotel (in particular from Shivakumar M at reservations and Debayan Ghosh at concierge) was excellent. Debayan was very helpful in arranging a lovely trip to Mysore. The hotel reception was fun, complete with jasmine necklaces and a refreshing beverage and check in was smooth. Meaning... More

If you are in bangalore for a weekend with friends and want a Sunday afternoon of self indulgence then go no further than the Taj West. Unlimited Moët and a wide ranging buffet covering all cuisines means something for everyone. Moët is an option so for those of you that prefer not to drink you can still enjoy the food.... More

From the time you pull into the gate at the Taj West End off of Race Course Road, you will experience a fantastic property housing many very large plantation trees dating back hundreds of years surrounding colonial architecture.

One of those properties that were on my list of "must stay before I go"…. and it was worth it !! The hotel has a charm of a colonial bungalow- only that it is vast. The rooms are in different wings and it can be quite a walk between two rooms or the hotel facilities but then that is what... More

The Taj West End is also home to some of the city’s most acclaimed restaurants, offering unique and exquisite cuisines.The year 2012 marks the 125th year of operations of the Taj West End, Bangalore. This magnificent property opened its doors to guests as early as 1887 under a Victorian lady, Mrs. Bronson. By the turn of the century, Bronson’s West End ‘s prosperity had attracted a fair bit of attention, and in 1912 passed into the hands of the Spencers. In 1984, the hotel was passed onto the Indian Hotels Company Limited. Today, exuding historic age old stories from every corner, this hotel speaks to every traveler staying within its walls. The spectacular landscaped gardens within the hotel accrue to a lush 20 acres, something that the people of Bangalore thrive for. The hotel has created several Exclusive and Unique Experiences and packages for its guests all through the year, pampering and delighting them in true Victorian, Taj West End style. Each outlet; Mynt, Blue Ginger Masala Klub and Blue Bar will showcase their finest offerings in the most fabulous manner, sure to enchant, impress and dazzle their guests. ... more   less
