Taj - Connemara, Chennai is the city's only heritage hotel, built in 1854 as the Imperial Hotel, renamed Albany in 1886, finally re-established as The Connemara in 1890. It was an Art Deco look that the Connemara sported when it ‘reopened’ in 1937. And the legendary architect Geoffrey Bawa added his touch to the tower block and linking pool in 1974.

We booked the banquet hall and rooms at the Taj Connemara for our wedding. From the very start, Mr Rubandass was extremely helpful in getting things sorted and making the process quite smooth for us. When it comes to our stay, the staff at the Taj Connemara always went above and beyond to make sure that we had a comfortable time there. Unlike other 5 star hotels I have been to, I found that the space at Taj Connemara is quite peaceful. No noisy lobbies. The room we stayed in was quite spacious and had a beautiful Colonial look to it. High ceilings and vintage furniture gave it a regal and cosy vibe. Overall, we enjoyed our experience with Taj Connemara and look forward to another stay cation at the hotel.
