Taj Connemara

There's a new buzz in Chennai. Just 17 km from the domestic airport. In the heart of the commercial district of Chennai. It's ”Colonial Brilliance“ at its best.

Vivanta by Taj - Connemara, Chennai is the city's only heritage hotel, built in 1854 as the Imperial Hotel, renamed Albany in 1886, and 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. Today it is infused with the spirited style of Vivanta by Taj. A fresh new vibe that complements tradition.

Drive in from the airport delighting in backseat surprises (we're not revealing here). You'll see how we mean business in a quiet efficient way from the moment you step in. Our lobby is a unique mix of chic and classic.



Art Deco architecture marks cosmopolitan rooms. Relax in leisure where yesterday meets tomorrow. And business meets pleasure.
