Taj Hotels are a benchmark in themselves when you talk about hospitality and luxury. With umpteen number of hotels spread across the world and in India, they have recently launched a property in Amritsar, called Taj Swarna. With about 20 minutes away from the Golden Temple, 20-25 minutes away from the airport and half an hour away from the railway station, the location of the hotel deserves a lot of praise.
Vistara Airlines and Taj Swarna started off around the same time in Amritsar. Vistara started its daily flights to and fro Delhi and Mumbai, and the to and fro journey of mine was courtesy Vistara. A 1 hour 10 minute long flight from Delhi, and they also give you snacks in it (I always loved Vistara, and mostly for its food :D).
The hotel opens into a huge huge lobby with a ceiling about 3 floors high. On your left you see the reception and right next to it is a path that leads you to two of their restaurants. On the right of the entrance is the lift lobby and diagonally in front of you is their 24 hour restaurant. The moment you step inside the hotel, you see an outdoor area in front of you that’s very very inviting- so full of greenery.
