Relaxed elegance, impressive service and lots of modern touches, Taj Swarna is a cool Amritsar sanctuary close to all the historical sights.
A contemporary hotel in the heart of magical Amritsar, the Taj Swarna provides an exemplary level of hospitality that makes every guest feels special. From the lobby’s huge chandelier to the rooftop outdoor pool and yoga deck there’s plenty of modern design while elegant Amritsari art echoes a rich culture along with subtle nods to the Golden Temple, which is just a 30-minute drive away.
The Grand Trunk has made a name for itself in the city with a menu of authentic Northern Indian specialities rivalling surrounding street food eateries – trying the kulchas is a must – and also offers multi-cuisine comfort food throughout the day. Breakfast is an elaborate affair, high tea is reimagined the Indian way and the hotel’s second restaurant, The Chinese Room features a dazzling menu of Pan Asian cuisine. The all-glass Peg Bar is the perfect way to end the night and balance can be restored at the Jiva Spa, a luxury brand in its own right, with a strong focus on Ayurvedic treatments. Peaceful rooms are designed in muted tones and Club rooms on the higher floors are rewarded with panoramic old city views, butler service and afternoon canapés and cocktails in the Club Lounge.
Opposite Basant Avenue in central Amristar, next to the high end Trillium shopping mall and just 30 minutes drive through the old town to the Golden Temple
