IH Aviation and Travel had earlier written about Taj Hotels, Palaces and Resorts’ plan to debut in Gandhinagar with a resort. Well, the resort’s website is now live and is accepting reservations from 1st June 2023.
Location and Design
Taj Gandhinagar Resort and Spa is a 6-acre oasis located at a 45-minute drive from Ahmedabad’s Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport. From the centre of Gandhinagar, the resort is approximately 20 kilometres away.
The hotel markets itself as a “true wellness destination” and it says that “the last-mile approach to the hotel already starts calming and soothing you as you leave the bustle of the city behind”. The resort has been built with a beautiful Mediterranean hacienda style design. The ground +2 structure ensures you are never detached from the lush greenery that continuously punctuates the sprawling hotel grounds.
The end of the palm-fringed driveway unveils the distinct blue dome. The grand entrance follows this, with a a series of stately arches held up by tall and majestically designed pillars. The reception area features beautiful chandeliers poised regally over a beautiful water-body.
The palatial lobby is adorned with paintings, artefacts and statuettes. This is followed by a serene courtyard festooned with wide-branched trees and a pretty lotus pond.
Accommodations and Dining
Taj Gandhinagar Resort and Spa features 70 guest rooms and 5 suites. Each of them features tastefully designed furniture, rich artefacts and spacious bath areas, along with French windows offering views of the surrounding flora and fauna. The base rooms have 35 square meters of floor space.
