I stayed here for my christmas vacation. This place was better than any resort I stayed in during my tour of south India. Feels really nice and classy. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good stay in chennai. Its pretty affordable too. I am honestly surprised how good this place is for the price.

We arrived late in the night and we quickly taken to the room. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms had all amenities expected of a top rated hotel. We ordered room service and the rates were nominal. Great hotel and staff!!!
Stayed on the executive club floor which included full breakfast, afternoon tea, evening cocktail happy hour, all of which we enjoyed. One way transfer from airport was included and 2 Taj staff members were waiting with a sign the minute we exited arrivals hall. Most appreciated as was 1:00 AM and we had completed over 18 hours of flights. Once in our room they brought complimentary tea service. What a way to start. Used workout room twice, massage and Yoga session (90 minute private with incredible yoga master). Have tried massage a number of places but this was the best ever.
Breakfasts had every type of food so travelers from all over the world could find their preference. They made me homemade multigrain croissants and brought them straight from the oven. Melted in your mouth. Cafe on lower level had these baked goods available during the day at prices as low as a grocery store. Everything we tried was the best.
When we wanted to go places in the city the staff assisted with recommendations and then actually walked us to tuk-tuk stand at hotel entrance and insured that we had negotiated price and got in safely. Could not have asked for more. For places close to the hotel this was the only way to travel as traffic is so gridlocked. Everywhere we went had staff to assist and security measures were in place, ex. Bag/security checks at entrances. When going further a driver of course was needed. Hotel driver was incredibly helpful. Highly recommend hotel.
A lovely hotel close to the airport.
Staff were very curteous and helpful. This was demonstrated when my internal flight was cancelled and the Hotel immediately provided their courtesy car so I could go to the airline office at the airport.
Grand hotel great customer service,staffs are very nice Especially Raja who took care of my room always smile on is face .for room service whenever I called is name he was there for me .Re buffet it is over priced. Front desk reception staffs are very curious,polite,helpful . Overall they met my expectations. I enjoyed it.
Gem of a hotel in the heart of the city. I booked this hotel mainly for its proximity to the US consulate for my visa appointment. Was pleasantly surprised by the grandeur of the place as well as its quality of service. Room was very spacious and comfortable. Location of hotel is terrific- easy access to all areas of the city. I would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended!!
My partner & I loved staying here. The staff was top notch, always helpful and friendly, anticipating our needs, taking the time to do little "extras" that were not required. The swimming pool was wonderful. Massages good. Beach well cared for. The food was very authentic Indian and delicious. Huge variety of delicious offerings for their buffet breakfasts & lunches. I also tried the breakfast buffet at nearby Radisson Blu and rank the one at Ideal Beach Resort was MUCH better (and WAY cheaper).
We came at the hottest time of the year and the electricity cycled on and off a few times a day (not unusual in India, so can't fault them for that). The rooms are air conditioned and very comfortable. The only thing you should be aware of is the dining room area is open air to the outdoors (covered so you don't get rained on and wired sides so the birds don't come land on your plate), so it is quite warm. Their are many overhead fans to keep the air moving, but if it's 100 Degrees F outside, that still leaves me sweating profusely and uncomfortably hot. If that's an issue for you, go at a cooler time of year.
