The hotel blends its colonial design with a contemporary setting in the smart city of New Town.
“Taj with a strong presence in Kolkata for over three decades now extends its offering with Taj Taal Kutir in New Town. With this addition, IHCL is addressing the growing demand of emerging micro-markets in the city. Serving as the gateway to East India, Kolkata holds immense commercial and tourism potential and we remain committed to growing our presence in the region. We are delighted to once again partner with Mr. Harshavardhan Neotia and the Ambuja Neotia Group,” said Puneet Chhatwal, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer.
According to the company, Kolkata is an important commercial hub and is a blend of heritage, history and culture. With this addition, IHCL will have six hotels across Taj, SeleQtions, Vivanta and Ginger brands in Kolkata including one under development.
“We take great pleasure in the inauguration of the Taj Taal Kutir, offering a luxurious getaway in Kolkata’s contemporary township of New Town juxtaposed with art-deco architecture reminiscent of a past era. Taj Taal Kutir is the newest addition to the portfolio of these boutique offerings which are called ‘Kutir’. It is the fifth in the series after Guras Kutir, Ganga Kutir, Raajkutir and Chia Kutir. We have taken yet another step forward in our partnership with IHCL, adding our third hotel in Kolkata,” Harshavardhan Neotia, Chairman, Ambuja Neotia Group said.
