Vivanta by Taj Connemara

Binny Road, Chennai - 600002

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.

De-stress options such as a special Rest Easy menu and massage showerheads add luxury to your stay.

he Earth rooms have small but significant changes that contribute in their own way towards conserving the environment. The CFL lamps are more energy-efficient, the bedside note pad has fewer pages and the paper is handmade and recyclable, only the preferred newspaper will be sent daily, the air-conditioning in your room will be pre-set at 24-degree Celsius and there will be no mini bar in the room, leading to saving of up to 30 % of energy. Instead of flowers, expect a live potted plant and the room is non-smoking. The bath and bed linen will be changed every other day, instead of every day, halving the use of environment-damaging detergents. These rooms are subject to availability and can be placed on request only.

The styling and the décor suits both business and leisure travellers. Very modern. Very in.
