“An exotic oasis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Taj Coromandel was peaceful, calm, cool and the service was wonderful. There was also a great little shop in the lobby with some of the best handicrafts from the region at very fair prices.
Security was very good , but it was the personal greetings and farewells by the staff, including the manager in her beautiful blue silk sari that is what I will remember.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for leaving your comments on Tripadvisor.
I have shared your kind words of appreciation with our associates who are encouraged and motivated on receiving the same.
We are glad that you enjoyed shopping at Taj Khazana. In fact, the silk sarees worn by our lady front office associates have been designed exclusively for us by the weavers from the ancient city of Varanasi. This is a part of a unique Taj initiative which provides sustainable livelihoods for several weavers in the region.
Thank you for choosing to stay at the Taj Coromandel. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
Kind regards,
N Prakash

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Really impressed with my first stay here. Impressive welcome. Very intelligent and friendly front office who put you immediately at ease.

Room space excellent and well appointed. Bathroom is large. Has a confusing shower but with detailed instructions which if negotiated leads to bathing pleasure ! Not happy with no water jets in the loo...definitely uncomfortable for Indian guests.

Tried Southern Spice and tried their Thali. Have no hesitation in saying this is one of the best South Indian restaurant in India. Have several home made recipes which are authentic and lip smacking. Would particularly like to compliment the restaurant staff whom I found exceptional. Warning : try the thali on a hungry stomach !! I was forced to abject surrender by the time I was halfway through the meal :)

I feel the hotel can service is grossly overpriced. I paid about Rs.2800 for 3 hours. Always a better idea to hire from a local operator in advance.

Breakfast was also excellent with a wonderful spread. overall : staff excellent,food super excellent,guest amenities pricing : poor.

Taj Coromandel is truly a world-class property that lives up to its pedigree, be it the grand entrance lobby, the restaurants, the rooms or the service. The location is good, if one wants to be near the centre of the city.

You are ceremonially welcomed and pampered throughout your stay. The room service is outstanding. The staff members are exceptionally well trained, courteous and attentive.

The buffet meals are excellent, with plenty of choices. I was particularly impressed by the variety of fruits, including pineapple, dragon fruit, Californian grapes and fresh figs.

Ultimately, the only weakness in this hotel is in the blandness of its perfection! If you prefer a hotel with its own distinctive character, plan to stay at the heritage Connemara hotel, another property in Chennai belonging to the Taj Group.

Staying in any Taj property is really satisfying and always linger in your memory. Hence I was at Taj Coromandel during my recent visit to Chennai. Even though my friends suggested me to stay in other properties which came up recently, my preference was Taj. I was here for one week and everyday was enjoyable. Love to come back here again.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms in third floor.

The property offers much more than the two other Taj Hotels in the city. It is a luxury property.

The single largest high light for me is the pool !

The Chinese Restaurant is good.

Got something really nice for a wedding from the gift shop which has a nice choice.

The location in central chennai is tops.

The construction work was a bit of a nuisance. Hopefully temporary.
