Vivanta by Taj Connemara

​As Chennai’s only heritage hotel, Vivanta by Taj - Connemara is an absolute standout.

As Chennai’s only heritage hotel, Vivanta by Taj - Connemara is an absolute standout. As the presidency of Madras became the metropolitan of Chennai, the iconic Connemara has been given a fresh new vibe by the Vivanta by Taj, without compromising its wonderful heritage style. The grand lobby is flanked by memories of a regal past, the refurbished grand wooden staircase is embellished with South Indian stonework, and a centuries-old brass statue of Shiva & Parvati stands to attention. The result is a luxury hotel that offers all the modern-day comforts in an opulent interior filled with stories.

Guest rooms are some of the largest and most spacious in the city, each designed to relive the glorious past with the right contemporary touches, including rain showers, LCD TVs and private bars. High windows and sit-outs offer a tranquil place to welcome the day and enjoy evening sundowners in privacy. But for true relaxation, head to the Jiva Spa for an indulgent treatment or take a dip in the outdoor pool.

The hotel has two main restaurants – The Raintree, an award-winning venue that serves authentic local Chennai recipes with a contemporary twist, and The Verandah, which will surprise your palette with a fusion of Anglo Indian cuisine. There’s also an elegant bar and lounge, mixing up cocktails in a traditional club atmosphere.
