Vivanta by Taj – Connemara

Heritage hotel in Chennai

The top-end Taj Group has five hotels in and around Chennai, but this is the only one with historical ambience, built in the 1850s as the British governor's residence. There's a beautiful pool in tropical gardens and the Chettinadu Raintree restaurant is one of Chennai's best. At research time, the hotel was closed for renovations, expected to reopen in early 2018.
