If bigamy is having one wife too many, and monogamy is the same, then the Taj group impresses on you that there is one liason that will never be too much to handle. In fact, they encourage serial monogamy in Hyderabad. With three fine hotels, the Taj allows you to experience the pleasures that you are in the mood for.
Taj Krishna is undoubtedly the finest Taj in the city, and next perhaps only to Taj Palace in Delhi and Taj Bengal in Kolkata across the country. Part of the Oberoi group and called Krishna Oberoi until 2001, Taj Krishna was formed when the Taj group took over both this hotel and Holiday Inn Krishna across the road, both part-owned by the GVK Group, and rechristened them (Holiday Inn Krishna is now Taj Residency). It has since been the capital of opulence in town - the biggest events book Taj Krishna for their delegates, the most royal parties are hosted here, the topmost executives of the biggest companies stay here, and the most graceful hostesses keep you welcome here.
As you set foot inside the majestic, almost regal, lobby, the word "luxury" explodes in a festivity of glittering sparkles in your head. With 260 plush rooms and suites, the Taj experience is here in all its glory. The pleasant Taj smile is on every face, and that little extra in everything will make you feel special. The interiors of the hotel are an enchanting blend of space and light. The rooms are really cosy giving you the impression that you can settle in for a long haul, and the business facilities available (detailed in the overview tab) will make the stay high on the productivity quotient.
The Taj Club rooms are delightful, and they come with certain exclusive privileges such as limousine airport transfers, private check-ins on the floor and a personal valet. The presidential suites come with their own private pool. The Club Lounge and The Chambers are highly exclusive and open only to select customers.
The dining options at the hotel are divine. Encounters
is the 24-hour coffee chop, Firdaus
is an Indian speciality restaurant and Golden Dragon
is Chinese, and Al Fresco
is a poolside open area restaurant. Seasons
is a delightful bar with live music, and its lounge across the corridor is a tempting tea lounge. There is also a tiny patisserie that doubles up as a book store.
The hotel houses T2
(Tunnel), the city's most happening discotheque, and has an outlet for pearls - the gems Hyderabad is world-famous for. Moonshine is a vast banquet hall where parties like the South-Indian Filmfare post-award ceremonies are held.
Taj Krishna is a Taj in all its Taj splendor. As far as Hyderabad is concerned, anyway.
