Taj Bengal, Kolkata

Traditional Hotel


Short description

A landmark in downtown Kolkata


Recommended for:
City | History & culture | Spa


A landmark in downtown Kolkata, the Taj Bengal offers contemporary grandeur within a stone’s throw of the city’s most important institutions, including Belvedere House, which used to serve as the Palace of the Viceroy of India and now houses the National Library. The elegant façade recalls the heyday of the Raj, with antique furnishings and original artworks throughout. Its location in the city’s green Alipore district helps make the Taj a welcome retreat from the clamour of city life.


The hotel’s 200 rooms and 29 suites provide far more than just air-conditioned comfort away from the bustle of the city. Expect classic wood furnishings, fabrics of cream and gold, a scattering of antiques and in some cases private balconies with views of the Victoria Memorial. Consider upgrading to the Taj Club level and take advantage of 24-hour butler service, free laundry, a private restaurant and an exclusive bar with padded leather sofas and free drinks at happy hour.


Nine different restaurants offer everything from fine French dining at The Chambers and Bengal’s best Far-Eastern food at Chinoiseries, to traditional Indian fare at Sonargaon, and the flavours of the eastern Mediterranean at the chic and minimalist Souk. Informal, 24-hour favourites are served at The Hub, and alfresco dining is available at the Grill by the Pool.


Taj’s signature Jiva Spa provides ample respite from the daily rigours of city living, with an emphasis on time-honoured Indian techniques, while a more proactive way to wellness can be found in the superbly equipped fitness centre. The hotel is also home to a vast pool, perfect for daytime relaxation.
