Powerful Essays
INTRODUCTION:

For more than 100 years, we have acquainted guests with the living heritage of India - and a legendary experience in hospitality.

It began on December 16, 1903, when Jamshetji Nusserwanji Tata opened Taj's first hotel, the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower, Mumbai. This grand hotel epitomized a philosophy that still holds true today: provide impeccable service and unparalleled facilities so every stay is a memorable one.

A part of the Tata Group of companies www.tata.com, India's premier business house, Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces comprises 57 hotels in 40 locations across India with an additional 18 international hotels in the Maldives, Mauritius, Malaysia, Seychelles, Australia, UK, USA, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Africa, and the Middle East. Over the years, Taj has won international acclaim for its quality hotels and its excellence in dining, business facilities, interiors, and world-class, personalized service.

In India, Taj is recognized as the premier hospitality provider, spanning the length and breadth of the country, and gracing important industrial towns and cities, beautiful beaches, historical and pilgrim centres, and wildlife destinations.

An innovator in dining, Taj was the first to introduce Sichuan, Thai, Italian, Mexican, and Californian cuisine into the country. In 1972, it was the first to open a 24-hour coffee shop in India at Taj Mahal Palace & Tower, Mumbai. Today, each restaurant is reflective of that tradition, setting benchmarks for an outstanding culinary experience.

Built at the cost of a quarter of a million pounds, the hotel introduced a series of firsts that set new
