Excellent property..excellent fiod and typical Taj hospitality which was flawless. The only reason I am not giving it a five star is because of some issues I had in the spa. There is a certain lack of privacy there.

Hi All, Been there from 24 May to 26 May on a family package. Hotel is beautiful and no special mentions for any of Taj's facilities. Staff was too courteous and friendly. Food was delicious and wasn't expensive comparing to other Taj restaurants. It was very pleasant experience and special mention to our chauffeur for city and Ellora tour "Ali".... More

The hotel, much like the city, has a historical feel about it. As soon as you enter it feels as if you are cut off from the city. The rooms are a bit small compared to other Taj Vivantas but are quite cozy and fresh. The bathrooms are small as well and have got really old fittings. The balcony had... More

Let's face it the only reason to come to Aurungabad is to visit the Ajanta/Ellora caves and this is by far the best hotel in the region. While not quite up to other Taj properties I've stayed, it is nonetheless a beautiful hotel. The hotel is surrounded by a large property and gardens. The rooms are large with a lovely... More
